Maia

Overview

Meet Maia, a synthesizer full of soul. It can be an emotional instrument or a furious beast, depending on your mood.

Elegant sounds from organic and timeless sources, Maia’s Dual Synth Engine generates iconic synthesizer textures and ethereal melodics through a versatile dual synth, a dual step sequencer and a multi-effect unit.

Powered by a massive two-part sample engine expertly crafted into over 200 useable patches, this unique RE balances functionality with flexibility in a host of features like part specific modulation, a wave-shaper filter, LFO routings and split source signal processing.

Furthermore designed to optimise your workflow in Reason, turn Maia into a unique FX processor by routing your sounds through the audio in bus to re-process your favourite VSTs.

Dense evolving pads, harmonious plucks with character, aggressive mono bass and rhythmic sequencer patches are just some of the useful sounds you can get out of this unique RE - Start your trial today and bring the sound of Maia to your world!

What’s new in Maia 1.5.1

Changes:

Up/Down arrows added to the fields of Osc Tables for easier editing and navigation.

Handling of leds on the Oscillator Table has been changed: when you played a chord by holding notes and you went beyond the end of the Osc Table, the Leds turned off when you released the last key even if another key still played that Oscillator. Now it works as intended.

The leds on the Osc Tables now show only the real sounding notes, when the number of playing notes exceed the max polyphony setting, the leds of the old notes will be filtered out.

Bugfixes:

In some cases, the ghost leds on the Osc Tables appeared incorrectly, fixed.

In mono mode, the Osc Table lost the focus when reverted to held note and it played the main oscillator instead of the Osc tables’s setting. This has been fixed.

When one of the synth engines was in mono mode and its sequencer pattern was enabled, the Osc Table LEDs on the other synth engine didn’t turn off.

In some cases when you changed mono mode while you held keys, the held keys could get stuck. Now if you change mono mode, Maia will release all sounds.

Osc Table Led bug: if you played several notes and released one key, the Led on step1 of the Oscillator table always turned off.

  

What’s new in Maia 1.5

Oscillator table is an exciting new feature of Maia 1.5 - providing a unique way to create continuously changing sequences, melodies or bass lines. They can work perfectly either with the internal step sequencer or you can use them with any player device of Reason.

LED display on the step sequencer: shows the current position of the running steps.

• Step sequencer’s special mono mode: when playing on the keyboard in legato mode, the step sequencer and the oscillator table won’t restart the sequence, it will jump to the next position and continue the sequence.

• updated and enlarged factory patch bank

• minor bug fixes
