I just heard from Jeremy Cubert of The Jeremy Cubert Project. He got Rotator Volume 2 and within one day had a new tune on Soundcloud. He uses the Rotator ReFill with an Eigenharp Pico. If you like avant garde new music, check out Particle Dance on his SoundCloud page. Great work Jeremy, we hope to hear more from you!
Sometimes you want to control your Reason devices 'hands-free', like, oh, I don't know, when you have both hands on your wind controller. In this short tutorial, I'll show you how to map an unused note on your wind controller to control the 'Solo Lead' switch on a Rotator combinator. This approach also works if you have a foot pedal. Ready? Let's dive in.
With all the work getting Rotator finished, I've been slacking off a bit on the tutorials. It also means I have a backlog of cool stuff I've been thinking about so we will start up again talking about the multi-oscillator in Thor.
Now, the REAL Multi Oscillator tutorial is here on the Propellerheads web site in the "Discovering Reason" series. I'm not going to go into too much detail , and I am going to put my own spin on it to (hopefully) make this relevant to those of us with a wind controller. By the end of the tutorial, we will have created a classic 'blown pipe' EWI sound, but using nothing but the Multi Oscillator in Thor. A natural type sound, created via synthesis only!
We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new awesome ReFills for Reason - "Rotator Volume 1: Synths" and "Rotator Volume 2: Sampler." These ReFills for Reason enable you to play chords and chord progressions on your EWI wind controller. Your playing will never be the same.
I believe our tools should enable us to make as much music as we can and have as much fun as we can doing it. Technology at its best can excite and inspire us to create more and better music.
It is with this in mind that Rotator was created. It's a programmable harmony generator that creates a series of chords as you play. The Rotator series of ReFills can inspire you by giving you a whole new way of playing - a way of playing that truly takes advantage of the best technology has to offer. Plus, it's just lots of fun!
Rotator Volume 1: Synths focuses on synthesizers inspired by the classic Oberheim and Moog synths. The chords shift and turn as you play, revealing compelling harmonies.
Rotator Volume 2: Sampler lets you play virtual orchestras, big bands, ethnic ensembles and more.
Each ReFill comes with a 20 page user guide that explains the concept behind the rotator, how it works and how to make your own patches.
I'm super excited to finally release these. I hope you have as much fun playing them as I did making them. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some music to make!
