Propellerhead Release New Synth For Reason

Parsec is an additive synthesizer Rack Extension      29/10/13

Propellerhead has announced the immediate availability of Parsec, a new synthesizer for Reason. They say that Parsec adds a new style of synthesis to the rack and allows for a wealth of brand new sounds, textures and noises.

A spokesperson told us, "Parsec offers impressive tones for charismatic hooks, build-ups, pads, atmospheres and otherworldly sounds. It's built to inspire, regardless of the musical genre it is used in: indiepop, techno, house or bass music."

Technically Parsec is an additive synthesizer, based around two advanced oscillators consisting of 512 partials each that are sculpted through two "modifiers". There are 2 envelopes and 2 LFOs that can modulate parameters. There is also a delay and a reverb that add to the sonic palette, and a modulation bus, familiar to users of Propellerhead's Thor synth.

Parsec features

  • Additive synthesis without taxing your CPU--or your brain.
  • A new palette of inspiring synth sounds for the Reason Rack.
  • It's a vocoder too, with modulation from Parsec's audio input.
  • Amazing sound bank with inspiring sounds for electro house, bass music, minimal techno, electronic indie and   pop, far-out experimental, and more.
  • Based on interesting algorithms that encourage experimentation without requiring technical knowledge of additive synthesis.
  • Integrated with the Reason rack: control Parsec from other sources; run audio through it; combine it with other instruments.
  • Two engines that make up a single sound. Use one engine for the attack and another for sustain. Or use both at the same time for ultra thick tones!
  • Super-flexible internal routing with plenty of modulation sources.

 


Pricing and Availability:
Parsec is available immediately from the Propellerhead Rack Extension store for USD 119,- and Euro 99
