In the past days, I had some troubles to name the rack extensions / plugins of Propellerhead because the shops describe them now as plugins. In the beginning, the Propellerhead Software team take care of the name of their external instruments and named them: Rack Extensions. Now since some days, a new shop is only and they call plugins.
Nonethless, Skrock Music released today a special Synthesizer for Reason. It’s a split waveform Synthesizer where you can split your waveforms in 4 segments. Interesting concept in my eyes.
In Radiator, one single cycle waveform is divided into four parts (ABCD) playing in sequence. Each part has eight waves to mix and match which then results in the final waveform. To add even more sound shaping, each of these parts (ABCD) has its own Amp, Pan, Semi, and Cent controls.
All sections (ABCD) have their own controls for Amp, Pan, Semi, Cent. This enables the user to further modify the final waveform. For example, detune just a part of a waveform, or turning off one section completely by turning down it’s amplitude.
MODULTIONS AND SETTINGS:
Radiator also features a control panel for settings and modulations. Polyphony can be enabled/disabled, as can filter key tracking.
Here we also find two modulation ADSR envelopes, and two modulation LFOs. These can be routed to:
- Global Pitch
- A, B, C or D Pitch Global Volume
- A, B, C or D Volume Global Panning
- A, B, C or D Panning Global Filter Cutoff
- A, B, C or D Filter Cutoff
