Stockholm, Sweden, September 14, 2017 – Propellerhead today released Layers, a new Reason Rack Extension. Layers Quadrasonic Sample Player is a virtual sample collection of vintage synthesizers, re-imagined in a modern, creative instrument. You can access new sounds and get inspired by layering and sculpting pristine audio samples from classic 80’s and 90’s synth keyboards to create new music.
“Layers is a new type of Rack Extension instrument that provides great sounding samples from some of the most sought-after synths,” stated Mats Karlöf, Propellerhead Product Manager. “In addition to the great sounding samples, Layers also offers the flexibility to create and design your own sounds or access an expansive library of patches from expert sound designers.”
The bulk of the Layers sample set was created by recording a collection of rare and sought-after synthesizers from the golden age of analog. The instruments sampled include Alesis Andromeda A6, Roland Juno-60, Jupiter-4, Korg Poly-800, Moog Prodigy, Waldorf Microwave, and Oberheim Matrix, to name a few*.
With four separate layers of samples, comprehensive effects and modulation, and a built-in step sequencer to trigger your sounds, Layers is the instrument that will bring out your best ideas when you need them. You can skip straight to the music with Layers’ built-in patches from expert sound designers, or get creative and create your own sounds from Layers’ first-class sample sets. With an easy-to grasp interface, it’s easier than ever to bring out your own rich, evolving synth sounds to suit your musical needs.
