PinkNoise Studio proudly presents: PRO.TON3
virtual analogue synth with hardware based chorus!
is not a traditional refill. Neither is it a sampling
library, filled with recorded presets or sounds of
instruments. It's more like a virtual analogue synthesizer
that exploits the full power of Reason.
only uses short analogue waveforms (saw, square, etc.) as
building blocks in NN-XT advanced sampler. NN-XT handles
unlimited number of multilayers, where every layer has its
own envelopes, LFOs, filters, pan position. These layers
(in analogue terminology: oscillators) can also be altered
& controlled by velocity, modwheel and aftertouch. And
this was only the NN-XT, now comes the icing on the cake:
hardware based chorus effects
On the other hand, PRO.TON3
is the very first synthesizer refill in the world that integrates
two hardware modeled chorus effects into Reason: the Roland
Dimension-D and Boss CE-1.
Roland Dimension-D and Boss CE-1:
these are probably the best sounding and artifact-free chorus
effects in the world!
You could hear them on countless records, from luminaries
such as Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads and INXS. And from
now on these great effects are integrated into your REASON
rack, providing incredible fat, warm and wide stereo sounds!
Now you may say: m'key... this is a nice feature
indeed... but how is that possible?
Well, a little trick may help ;-)
In general the sequential place of the chorus stomp
can be swapped in the effect chain: in most cases it won't
affect the final sound.
So, we said: let's place the chorus first, directly after
the oscillator! And the other effects (including NN-XT's
filters, envelopes, and the other insert and send effects)
can follow it in the chain. Does it sound strange? Yes,
but it works! :)
So, in addition to the dry oscillator samples, PROTON3
contains the different "chorused" version of
the oscillators as well. You can use these chorused versions
mixed with the dry version, or switch among them using
