Propellerhead Software has released the Quad Note Generator Player Rack Extension for Reason, which they say lets you create melodies, rhythms and harmonies you may not have thought of.
Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Product Manager, told us, “Players, our MIDI effects, have always been about making music faster and kickstarting new ideas. Quad Note Generator goes even further, generating a stream of unpredictable melodies, rhythms and harmonies—with enough control to feel in control. Add it to your favorite instrument and get new ideas for any type of music.”
Here's more details in Propellerhead's own words...
This new Player Device will help create bass lines, leads lines or other musical phrases to fit your music, based on scale and your preferences for rhythm and variation. Far beyond just random notes, Quad Note Generator will take your music and turn it upside down or turn the beat around. Slight variations or complete improv–it’s up to you.
You can use Quad Note Generator in several ways. Use it as your starting point to help you set off in a direction with your song. Or use it to spice up something you are already working on. If you like, you can record the Quad Note Generator performance into Reason’s main sequencer to for final editing.
With the freeze function, you can create phrases that are part repetitive and part improvisational in nature.
