Reason Studios Polar
Pitch Shifter Rack Extension
Polar is an old school harmonizing and pitch-shifter effect with a host of modern tricks up its dual sleeves. Use it for classic harmonizing, stereo-widening and realtime pitch-shifting, or experiment with freezing and looping for otherworldly effects.
Polar is an old school harmonizing and pitch-shifter effect with a host of modern tricks up its sleeves. Use it for classic harmonizing, stereo-widening, and realtime pitch-shifting, or experiment with buffer looping and audio freezing to create otherworldly effects.
Load up Polar in the rack, and it will instantly make your sounds wider. Introduce slight pitch-shifting to make it even bigger. Turn the Shifters to add harmonics — up to two octaves above - or radically change the pitch down to two octaves below. Finish up your patch by turning on the filter, manipulated by the built-in LFO and envelope.
If you are a singer, producer, guitarist or remixer who is looking for transparent pitch-shifting, creative ways of turning bland recordings into wide, evolving soundscapes - or want to completely mangle a sound into an interesting mess, Polar brings all this and much more to your Reason rack.
- Widen your sounds - Polar turns bland mono signals into broad, beautiful stereo
- Add slight pitch shifting for chorus-like thick tones
- Heavily shift vocals, samples or recordings in pitch, transparently or old school gritty
- Experiment with delay and feedback to create glittering arpeggios from one-note recordings
- Four different algorithms - classic, smooth, loop and reverse - provide plenty of sound sculpting possibilities
- Buffer lock, sweepable with Polar's built-in LFO, produces glitchy loops and tonal textures
New in version 1.1: The new 4X mode multiplies the delay time. This allows you to delay signals and sweep through buffers up to 1600ms long. Version 1.1 also adds thirty new patches.
