Propellerhead Software has released Reason 2.5. New features include:

The RV7000 advanced reverb is a stereo-effect module. The reverb engine consists of nine algorithms: small space, room, hall, arena, place, spring, echo, multitap and reverse, with up to seven individual parameters on each. The RV7000 also includes an EQ (parametric EQ, a low-shelving filter) and gate (can be applied to any reverb algorithm and can be triggered with CV or MIDI) section.

The BV512 Digital Vocoder is a 4- to 512-band vocoder capable of modulating sounds in analog or in digital FFT; it can also be used as a fully automated graphic EQ.

The Scream 4 Sound destruction unit is a distortion unit with 10 different damage types: overdrive, distortion, fuzz, tube, tape, feedback, modulate, warp, digital and scream. Scream 4 also incorporates a +/-18dB 3-band EQ and the unique Body section, which is similar to a speaker simulator. There are five basic Body types to select—each with its own vibe—as well as separate controls for Body Resonance and Body Scale. The Auto function is an amplitude respondent envelope follower that controls the scale parameter.

The UN-16 Unison is a reincarnation of the Unison button found on early-'80s synths. Now in a half-rack unit, the Unison fattens up incoming audio by emulating the effect of four, eight of 16 detuned voices playing the same sound.

Spider Audio merges and splits audio; multiple audio signals can be merged and processed with the same insert effect or an instrument's output can be split into four and sent to four different effect processors.

The Spider CV is similar to Spider Audio except that the splitting and merging is performed on CV and gate signals. The Merge function comes with individual attenuators for each input, and the Split function also inverts one of the CV outputs.

Reason 2.5 is available now; Reason 2.0 registered users can upgrade for free at Propellerheads' Website,
