Reason RE Robotic Bean Step Note Recorder

Reason RE Robotic Bean Step Note Recorder

MIDI step recording has finally arrived in Reason!
Step was inspired by the sequencers found in some classic mono synths, where you could record simple melodies one note at a time. You'll find all the usual features like rests, ties and octave shift - But why stop there? So we went ahead and added velocity recording, playback directions, gate widths, repeats, conditions and on-the-fly scaling. The result is fun, fast and addictive!

If you want pattern capabilities, Step pairs really well with our free RE Select CV Switch!
You can also bounce your Step sequences to a track, thanks to the Player devices in Reason 9 and later.

- Instant step recording for Reason!
- Transform the sequence in creative ways
- Full automation and CV support

Product Description:
In Step, recording your sequence is only the beginning. From there the possibilities are endless! You can twist and turn your sequences inside out, transpose them, scale them, and edit them to your heart's content.

For each step you can change the velocity and gate width, add repeats or ratchets, and even set individual probability or recurrence conditions. You also have two independent curve channels that send parameter changes to your instrument via CV.

Step has its own rock solid sync engine, but you can also clock it from any other device (including Euclid!) if you want. You can force the sequence to restart or steps to be muted using CV signals or automatable buttons.

Step can recognize chords received via a MIDI keyboard or its own sequencer track, and based on that it will select one of 14 supported scales, in any key you want. You can even transpose and scale your sequence independently!
