The PX7 FM Synthesizer from Propellerhead is a rack extension for Reason offering a faithful recreation of the popular DX series keyboards and includes a wealth of new sounds ranging from classic 80’s bass and brass to modern textures, leads, and growls.
FM synthesis, or Frequency Modulation synthesis, sounds are generated by layering or modulating frequencies of sine wave oscillators called operators. There are 32 selectable algorithms available for the six on-board operators, each with a dedicated envelope for precise control over modulation. What’s more, the interface has been greatly simplified for quick and easy tweaking via macro controls, which offer tons of new tones out of a single patch, without a full understanding of FM synthesis.
The PX7 includes a vast array of patches and Combinators ranging from modern to futuristic. The PX7 is patch-compatible with the classic it’s based on, the Yamaha DX7. An online patch converter quickly and easily converts them to PX7 format, giving you access to tens of thousands of presets for all styles of music. The rear of the PX7 includes CV control over operator levels for applying modulation from any device in the Reason Rack.
Note: Rack Extensions are only available for single-user licenses. This means that if you are a school/institution and have a multi-license for Reason, you will not be able to try, purchase, or install Rack Extensions
