New Europa & Grain Synthesizer
Propellerhead Reason 10 is jam-packed with content, including brand new additions to the software including three synthesizer instruments and more. One of the most prominent new additions to the software is the Europa synthesizer. This shapeshifting synthesizer is at the forefront of virtual synthesis. This ultra-versatile synth gives you full control over every aspect of your sound design. As well as utilising existing waveshapes, you can change the way your waveshapes react and are sculpted using the included ‘Shape’ control. This allows you to vary the way the waveform is shaped, resulting in interesting and ground-breaking results. It boasts dynamic wavetables and advanced spectral filtering, allowing you to get in-depth with your sound design. Another new addition is the ‘Grain’ sample manipulator. This fuses granular synthesis with elements of additive synthesis, creating a synth engine allowing you to incorporate your own audio samples. This opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to sound design.
Three New Organic Instruments
Also included in Reason 10 is three new natural and organic virtual instruments. These organic instruments are designed to emulate real instruments in a virtual world. Klang is a tuned-percussion instrument that delivers beautiful-sounding percussive instruments such as the Kalimba, Music Box, Glockenspiel and more. It features a range of controls for changing the way the presets sound, adapting to whatever genre you are making. Pangea provides you with stringed instruments from around the world. Including esoteric instruments such as the Kinderklavier and the Zitherette, Pangea also includes other more-known instruments such a ‘Struck Grand Piano’. Lastly, the Humana instrument provides ethereal tones in the form of choirs and other vocal textures. Humana is comprised of a range of out-of-this-world choir tones vocal sounds.
3GB New Drum Loop & Sample Library

Radical Piano & Synchronous
These two wildly popular rack-extensions now come with Reason 10 as standard. By popular demand the Radical Piano instrument is now included, providing with three ultra-realistic pianos. It gives you three pianos to choose from: home Grand, Deluxe Grand and Upright. You can also choose between a blend of vintage mono, ambience, floor, jazz and close microphone for added versatility. Synchronous is a creative modulation device that allows you to add rhythms to your pads, glitch your drums and even make your bass wobble. Synchronous is ideal for tremolo or ducking effect as well as building up modulation chains for complex effects.

This gives you virtually endless possibilities when it comes to sound design, allowing you to create chained instruments and more.
