Explore Reason 10's Europa Shapeshifting Synth

Europa is a powerhouse of sound generation and shaping, but it's also friendly and approachable to use. In this short video, Hollin Jones gives you a guided tour of this brand new synthesizer.  

Reason 10 is here and it brings with it some powerful new synths as well as new sampled instruments, pianos, the Synchronous Effect Modulator and a ton of new loop and sample content. In this short video from the course Reason 10 100: What's New In Reason 10, Hollin Jones shows you around the brand new Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer, a powerhouse of audio synthesis.  

Starting with the three powerful oscillators, you will see how signal is created and then shaped, tweaked and filtered through various sections before Unison mode is used to fatten up the sound. From there you can take advantage of the comprehesive modulation section and free-drawn or preset envelopes to add movement and dynamism, before finally adding effects from the onboard FX section. Check out the rest of the videos in this course to learn even more about Europa and the other new modules in Reason 10!

Reason 10 100: What's New In Reason 10

Reason 10 is here, and it’s big! It includes two brand new synthesizers, three new live-sounding organic instrument devices, Radical Piano and Synchronous (both previously available as Rack Extensions), as well as new library content. In this 17-tutorial course, our Reason expert Hollin Jones reveals how to get the most of all the hot new features.

He starts by showing you how to get creative with the powerful Europa shapeshifting synthesizer. This big
wavetable synth can create everything from buzzing lead sounds to deep basses and shimmering pads. Hollin then uncovers the mystifying Grain synth, and he explains how to completely transform samples with it.

Next, comes the three live-sounding organic instrument devices: Klang Tuned Percussion, Pangea World Instruments, and Humana Vocal Ensemble. Continuing with the course, you also discover how to get realistic sounding upright and grand pianos with Radical Piano, and you experience the complex and extremely powerful time-based effect Synchronous. Hollin also gives you an overview of the new library content.

So sit back and join Hollin Jones, and see and hear what Reason 10 will do for your music!
