Monosynth For Reason

FXpansion releases Tres Rack Extension      14/10/13

FXpansion tells us that Tres is a monosynth Rack Extension for Reason powered by DCAM analogue circuit-modelling technology. They say that, featuring their powerful TransMod modulation system and a wide variety of timbral flexibility and tone sculpting, Tres is a deep two-oscillator synth capable of deep basses, biting leads, strange drones, warped percussion and twisted SFX.

A spokesperson had this to say, "Tres' modelled VCOs can interact at audio rate to produce complex tones; a filtered noise generator and sub-oscillator round out the oscillator section. A keytracking, time-variant shelf-EQ allows you to emphasize or cut higher harmonics before a switchable multimode filter with huge resonance, self-oscillation, FM, adjustable drive and 3 distinct classic synth filter models. Tres' final output VCA provides a non-linear analogue drive stage for a variety of tonal colours from warm and smooth to gritty and aggressive.

Most of Tres' parameters can be modulated simultaneously by any of 10 available modulation sources including Tres' built-in dual envelopes and LFOs and external CV sources from elsewhere in your Reason project. You can also route external sources for audio-rate filter FM and use Tres' built-in envelopes and LFOs to modulate other devices within your session.

Tres comes with a comprehensive library of over 200 unprocessed and Combinator patches, developed in conjunction with Nucleus Sound Lab."
