Probably one of the most Famous Rack Extensions for Reason and also one of the earliest REs ever. Radical Piano Will now be shipped with Reason 10. The RE really stands out in terms of the physical modeling for Acoustic piano in the Market. I have already used Reason Piano Refill and still do but Radical Piano offers more Control and sound design possibilities. As a pianist, I really Love the feel and ease of use of Radical pianos and the control it gives you to craft the sound you want. Combine that with other Modulation and sound shaping tools that Reason offers and you can get something extremely unique and very far from being a piano at all. there’s where you can really go “Radical”.
My Favorite feature is Key noise control for both key up and key down. Also, Radical piano is not just limited to being an instrument, you can use it as an effect as well. Send audio in the back of the rack through it and it models the resonating of the piano strings like what would happen in real life.
The presets are very well organized and very clear and accurately named as well.
Waiting for Reason 10 to arrive, I decided to Download the 30-day Trial for the RE and check the sounds it offers.
Here’s a list of the sounds I’ve tried:
- Nice Grand
- Soft and Fast Jazz
- Miles Round Midnight Jazz
- More Keys than Strings
- Super Blue
- Underwater Keys
- Emotion Gate
