Designed to emulate real-life acoustic sounds, Objekt promises to “open the hood on physical modelling” and present it like a synthesizer. As well as enabling you to create bell, mallet, percussion and string sounds, you can also use it to produce natural textures, organic pads and more.
Objekt gives you three resonating objects to work with. These form the basis of your sounds, and can replicate the likes of strings, skins and bells. The Exciter section dictates how the instrument is played, and there are plenty of parameters that can easily be tweaked to create entirely new tones. More than 500 presets come included, and you also have a randomiser for fast inspiration.
"Objekt is the most unique and innovative instrument we've ever made," says Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Product Manager at Reason Studios. "It opens the door wide to a whole new world of sounds that simply can't be made with anything else. I recommend trying it and daring to experiment. Where you end up might sound familiar or like an imaginary instrument that doesn't exist. Until now."
Of course, this being a Reason device, you can also combine Objekt with other modules in the rack and get even more experimental.
Objekt is included with the Reason+ subscription and also available separately priced at $99/€109. An introductory offer that runs until 25 May means that you can currently pick it up for $79/€87.
