Nucleus SoundLab releases Filter Research 4 ReFill for Propellerhead rack extension      06/08/14

Nucleus SoundLab tells us that, back in 2008, they released the world's first effects Reason ReFill - Filter Research 1.  Now, almost exactly six years later, they are continuing to evolve effects sound design with Filter Research 4.  They say that this ReFill is built to specifically take advantage of Propellerhead's new pattern-based effect Rack Extension - Synchronous. Here's more of what they have to say about it...

With the power of Synchronous available, a whole new range of creative effects patches is now possible. 

Synchronous allows for effects that have a vast amount of dynamics, with it's capability to draw flexible modulation curves.  With that sonic potential, our team of experienced Reason sound designers - who actually created the entire Synchronous factory patch library - has crafted a set of patches designed to bring a new sense of movement to whatever type of audio you want to process.  The results of our work are MIDI-triggered stutters, complex robotic ambiences, gritty saturations, deep space FX, hybrid filterscapes and so much more.

You won't be disappointed with Filter Research 4's attention to detail.  All the standard highlights of Nucleus SoundLab ReFills are still present:  Unique Combinators with unique Combinator controls; full categorization of both Combinators and device patches; careful volume-balancing for every single patch.  This time the pitch-bend and modwheel are also mapped to creative destinations to put even more effects power at your fingertips!  Whether you need to mangle a sample beyond recognition, or just add some subtle sizzle to your productions, Filter Research 4 has just what it takes to make it happen.

  • 158 unique effects Combinators across 13 categories.
  • All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel/pitchwheel uniquely mapped.
  • Patches designed by veteran Reason sound designers.
  • Requires: Synchronous Rack Extension

Pricing and Availability:
Filter Research 4 is available for purchase now, at a price of $49 USD.
