The QUAD synthesizer was originally designed for the Reason platform as a Rack Extension and will make a very welcome addition to the current Rob Papen line-up.
The history behind QUAD
To give you a taste of what to expect in the VST/AU/AAX plugin format... Rob Papen QUAD for Reason features two oscillators with a seemingly simple arsenal of classic waveforms. The sonic palette is huge through the vast modulation possibilities that QUAD has to offer. The oscillators can be combined through many cross-modulation functions – generating a wide range of harmonics.
The next steps in the sound sculpting are the Phase Distortion and WaveShaper. These tools are brought to life by four XY-Pads, which can be moved through an extensive modulation matrix. The movements can be recorded as automation directly into Reason’s sequencer.
QUAD’s oscillators are complemented by two top-notch analog-modeled filters, an arpeggiator, and two high-quality effects processors.
