Reason 9.2
Rack Extensions Expanded

A new generation of Rack Extensions are coming with sample loading and new interface technology.

The latest version of Reason adds sample loading and improved UI to the Rack Extensions toolkit. Reason 9.2 is a free update for all Reason 9 owners. Check out the first instruments to support the new technology!

Expanse Hyperwave
Advanced Wavetable synth that now lets you load your own waveforms.

Proton
Brand new Granular Synthesis instrument.
Edit: Oh right, and Zero got some Reason 9.2 magic too!

Edit2: Release Notes! :D
Reason 9.2 Release Notes

Added support for Rack Extension SDK 2.5. Rack Extensions now support sample loading, hideable widgets and more.

Reason Patch Collection now includes all patches from Electromechanical and the office favorite patch Bass One'o'One (Reason full version only)

The patch Rheem GlitterTop is now correctly categorized as Electric Piano (Reason full version only)

Fixed a bug where a sample from the Factory Sound Bank could be self-contained which would lead to issues

Fixed an issue where notes could hang when using Players with the External MIDI Instrument

Edit3: oh, and now this post got some Admin treatment, zapped into another forum :) ok...

I've seen someone around here explain that by default all REs now(?) start with 3 stars and voting will adjust it further on... it seems.

Propellerhead Software today released Reason 9.2. A free update is exciting in it self, but the big deal this time is the realm of possibilities the new SDK 2.5 presents to us. Wavetable synths with custom wavetables? Dedicated pop-up menus for Rack Extensions? Tabs, widgets and switchable panels? All that is indeed possible now!

Announcing Reason 9.2
Posted Jan. 25, 2017, 8:41 a.m.


We're happy to announce that Reason 9.2 and a new version of the Rack Extension toolkit is now available!

When we created Rack Extensions we wanted to build a plug-in format that truly felt like Reason, with all the great workflow you guys expect. CV and audio connections, full automation, undo, integration with the Reason browser and much more.

Now, we've taken the next step! With Reason 9.2 and the new Rack Extension toolkit, developers can create devices with Reason's unique sampling feature and create much better, more user friendly interfaces with hideable widgets and panels, improved displays and more. We believe this will lead to even more exciting instruments, effects and utilities to help Reason users everywhere make more and better music. To show you just how great the new features are, Blamsoft and LoveOne have created two amazing synths.

Blamsoft's best-selling synth Expanse has been updated to version 2. The most exciting feature is that you can now load your own samples to create custom wavetables! It's also fully compatible with the Serum wavetable format, bringing an unfathomable number of new synth sounds to the Reason rack. I've personally had a lot of fun using Reason's sample feature to sample my guitar to create my own wavetables. Try it out and check the video below to see it in action.




Proton, developed by LoveOne in collaboration with Selig Audio, is a brand new synth and the first granular synth Rack Extension, which is exciting in itself. Based on the Neutron plug-in, Proton can load up any sample and synthesize new sound by throwing "particles" on the waveform to play parts of it. It sounds a bit like science fiction, but it's extremely fun and easy to use. Endless experimentation and interesting soundscapes awaits by simply dropping a sample on Proton and tweaking some parameters.

To update to Reason 9.2, simply launch Reason 9 or 9.1 and download your free update. And if you're on an earlier version or don't own Reason yet, there's never been a better time to get started. I'm really looking forward to see what new, exciting Rack Extensions that will be released. The only thing I know for sure is that there are now even more ways to get creative in the Reason rack.

My opinion is that Propellerhead REASON needs a complete rewrite!
P.S: people should stop saying "No it won't happen" when referring to a complete rewrite of REASON. I have 3 letters for ya....VST

I think JP mentioned that 3 stars is the shop's default for new products.

no way... FINALLY groups of synth parameters

Checked in expanse, no more ridiculous long lists of unsorted parameters, but sorted by LFO/ENVELOPE/...

Also OSC selection is now mapped in folders. While it took way too much time to provide this, I'm glad it's finally there.

Expanse was already flipping fantastic, now we get this... lovely.

I only recently picked up Neutron and I've been having a blast with it, so Proton is definitely up on my "must try" list. Really looking forward to what this means for future REs :)

Wow! amazing news.

Just been reading up on widgets, kind of get them but can someone here explain exactly what they are / do maybe in terms more specific to Re's?

I would also like to know more on what it means by 'improved displays'?

The clearly visible difference is that now it's possible to have popup menus on those custom displays.

Another is that now modifier keys (SHIFT, ALT, CTRL, CMD) also work on those displays, so RE Devs can use them now too while detecting mouse Click and Drag.

...and there's some improved way to update those displays, but the future will take care of showing that one out :)


btw, related to menus, another frikin'cool improvement is that now it's possible to have those option lists grouped like we're used to have on the Combinator or Thor, etc :)
