Apparently Niklas (CEO) recently said in an interview:

"We have a new one coming out in March that Peter has developed, so watch out for that."

What do you think it will be?

I don't know...what's left, that reason doesn't already have?

He did not said a new synth. He said a "a new one" in context of synths. This could also mean, we release a new Android app.. "A" in sense of something, anything or a thing. Maybe we see a new DAW? A new bug (fix)?

They could build some kind of physical modeling synth (similar to Friktion), but modeled after wind instruments instead of strings.
Players are to MIDI what synthesizers are to waveforms.

Yeah I think you're right. And considering they've been talking about a new effect and a player is coming soon that's probably the case. I just got carried away when reading it and assumed it was about a synth since it sounded like it in the context.

Perhaps we could remove this thread? Can you help me with that?

I could, but i won't, because it still can be a synth πŸ˜‚

It doesn't. That's Why I still have Caustic installed. That thing is great to build crazy wavetables.

I think it will be some form of new vocoder and perhaps also designed to play pitched vocal sample loops in that modern EDM style (I know Mimic can do this already but I'm thinking something simpler and more accessible).

Was it last year or the year before that creative delays were having a moment? I think it will be something like that.

Maybe RS version of that new hardware synth that sings what you want it to sing πŸ€”

Curios, do you think Friktion sounds awful? Or does the idea of a wind modeled synth sounds awful to you?
Players are to MIDI what synthesizers are to waveforms.

A Brass physical modeling synth would be awesome. I hate to solely rely on sample based stuff for brass/horns.

Friktion is a phantastic synth, time and time again I'm baffled how vivid it sounds.

He mentioned on Twitter it’s the same effect from the road map that is due in April:
Thank you Sam for taking the time to talk with me! (And to correct myself, the new effect comes out in April not March)

My money is on a glitch effect (or an effect with glitches)

My guess is a filter named air.

In the chief product officer's roadmap update from November 2021 he referred to the upcoming device as "a modern take on a classic effect".

So 'classic effect' could either mean an effect type that is considered classic (reverb, delay, filter, vocoder, chorus, fuzz etc), or a specific real FX hardware device released in the past that is lauded as a classic (Mutron Biphase, EMS vocoder 5000, Roland Space Echo RE-201 etc).

I'm going to say it's the former, and in recent years Reason has got fairly new filter/chorus/phase/flange devices, with Quartet and Sweeper. Another vocoder is a possibility i suppose given the popularity of vox FX stuff in modern productions, it seems a bit much to me though to have two dedicated vocoders in the rack, plus Neptune which does vocal FX and synth stuff.

So I'm going to guess that the device coming falls into either the delay/reverb category or distortion. The Echo, RV7000 and Scream 4 are all long in the tooth and there is likely much more that RS feel they could add in that area.

If I had to narrow down my guess, I'll say it's a new creative delay effect.
