The Parsec Spectral Synthesizer from Propellerhead is a rack extension for Reason utilizing an advanced additive synthesis engine. The instrument is capable of producing a wide pallet of vast sonic possibilities spanning everything from crisp, digital-sounding leads to lush and evolving pad sounds, rich sonic textures, and instrument sounds.
At the heart of Parsec’s sound lies two sound generators, each boasting up to 512 oscillators or partials per voice. The more partials the richer the harmonic content and the more detailed the sound. The generators offer 12 algorithms, from simple waveforms like sawtooth or square wave to algorithms modeling the spectral content of vibrating strings and complex overtones. To further sculpt the sound, each sound engine offers two modifiers, each offering 22 algorithms. Pick and choose from emulations of low-pass and high-pass filters, to more exotic offerings such as modifiers that mimics the effect of pulse width modulation, brick-wall band-pass filters and many more.
Parsec also offers a number of options for controlling its parameters including three envelopes, one of which can be set to loop mode. The comprehensive modulation bus allows you to effortlessly connect modulations and targets. The rear of Parsec includes several CV and Gate I/O for connecting to other devices in the Reason rack for added flexibility. There’s even an audio input allowing you to use Parsec as an additive vocoder.
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
