Rack Extensions are Here!
Rack Extensions are here and if you upgrade to Reason 6.5 you can get the Pulsar RE for free! To be honest I really had no idea what I would use Pulsar for, but I thought I would download it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is a pretty cool monophonic synth as well as a crazy dual LFO, and it sounds great. I thought I would add breath control to some of the Synth combinators included with the Rack Extension..
I thought the 'Double Saw' combinator sounded pretty good, so I thought it would be fun to play with the EWI. Let's take it apart by device.
Adding Breath Control
The absolute easiest way to add breath control to this patch is via the combinator programmer. All we need to do is control the Volume and Filter Frequency of the Pulveriser like this:
Easy. You can mess around with the min and max settings until you get something you are comfortable with. You can have a lot of fun just trying out different combinations of waveforms in the Pulsar.
You could also use CV to control these parameters, but this is probably the quickest way. Have fun and be musical playing with the new Pulsar mono-synth!
