I already had a pop song using orchestral arrangement using stock reason sounds. I added Friktion replacing the other strings and it is magical. Sometimes layering both or eliminating the source samples.

It is way more realistic sounding than sample based emulations

Stay well

I 've been unable to find an instruction manual or definitive instructional videos exploring all the parameters.
Any clues where I can find that would be helpful

Friktion is the best synth ever.

Friction is a bit of an odd duck in some aspects - I’m happy to answer specific questions if I can (I worked on the original sound bank and had to figure a bit of it out on my own and with other sound designers).

You can get to the manual under the Documents & Specs section of the shop page:

Kudos, the soundbank is really phantastic! There are many great synths in Reason, but "Friktion" is one of my most favorite ones.

I finally grabbed Friktion using my reward points. You can dial in some really wild sounds with this thing. It delivers the type of weird I've been looking for. I'm really going to lose track of time now.

Thanks everybody chiming in.
I still don't understand the relationship of Key Mode mode to the control in the silent octave of midi control keys

But I've been thoroughly enjoying playing it, one of Reason Studios triumphs bigtime in 2022

Thank Pepin I downloaded the manual and read it.

Selig , I can't activate the mod wheel to record my moves with most common method of right click and "EDIT Automation.
It highlights the mod wheel icon in green as usual but will not record. So I troubleshot and tried another parameter and was able to record tweeks to Harmonic section easily.

I thought maybe it was controlling it from Mod wheel on my Nektar controller so I tried manually creating mod wheel track and penciling it in but it won't record any moves. I can perform it but it won't record it

I figured it out
the mod wheel was neutral in the patch
needs to be activated for task
