Euclidean Rhythm Generator Rack Extension For Reason

Robotic Bean Creative has introduced Euclid Rhythm Generator, a Euclidean rhythm generator Rack Extension for Propeller Reason.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

Euclid is rhythmical inspiration in a box. You can use it to spice up your existing songs, or to start building up new ones from scratch. It’s a constant source of surprises and happy accidents for your productions. And there are plenty of presets included to help you get started or provide you with inspiration to build your own.

Euclid may seem simple on the surface, but it gets really deep once you start unlocking its secrets. You can automate and modulate basically every parameter, and each of the four gate outputs gives you a unique variation of the same pattern.

It comes with a big graphical display that visualizes your pattern in real time, including gate width, velocity, shuffle amount and current play position. The display also shows you all actual parameter values, taking CV modulation into account.
