Reason 6: The Pulveriser is Going to Pulverise Your Sound!
Given the great distortion effects that we’ve received from Propellerheads, one can look forward to the newest distortion effect in Reason 6, The Pulveriser. Get ready to crunch, crush and conquer those boring sounds and turn them into stardust.
You can use it to bring out more of the hidden details from your recording or sample, or make your live instruments recording more expressive and sharp. The first part of the Pulveriser is the “Squash” and “Dirt” knobs, which you can use either to add warmth to your snare or kick drum, make those guitars cry like babies, or completely mangle your sounds beyond recognition, and turn them into completely different lifeforms.
The Multi-mode filter comes next, and then the modulation, and finally the parallel compression. You can accomplish a lot from this distortion effect, from making your sound softer and warmer, introducing that tremolo effect, or bombarding grit and roughness onto any kind of bland sample. I think it’s great for all sorts of techno, rock, heavy metal, gothic, and futuristic/industrial genres. Though don’t let that stop you from experimenting on softer, mellower genres as well. Reason 6 continues the tradition that we’ve always come to expect from the Propellerhead guys.
