FXpansion’s Tres is a monosynth Rack Extension for Reason featuring DCAM circuit-modelling technology and advanced TransMod modulation. Tres’ complex oscillator timbres are sculpted by filter and VCA sections full of warmth and characterful tone. All important parameters can be modulated with internal LFOs and envelopes or external CV sources to produce fresh and original bass, lead, percussion, drone and FX sounds. Tres comes complete with over 200 presets curated by Nucleus Soundlab.
Circuit-modelled monosynth with TransMod
Tres is a monosynth Rack Extension for Reason powered by DCAM analogue circuit-modelling technology. Featuring our powerful TransMod modulation system and a wide variety of timbral flexibility and tone sculpting, Tres is a deep two-oscillator synth capable of deep basses, biting leads, strange drones, warped percussion and twisted SFX.
Tres’ modelled VCOs can interact at audio rate to produce complex tones; a filtered noise generator and sub-oscillator round out the oscillator section. A keytracking, time-variant shelf-EQ allows you to emphasize or cut higher harmonics before a switchable multimode filter with huge resonance, self-oscillation, FM, adjustable drive and 3 distinct classic synth filter models. Tres’ final output VCA provides a non-linear analogue drive stage for a variety of tonal colours from warm and smooth to gritty and aggressive.
Most of Tres’ parameters can be modulated simultaneously by any of 10 available modulation sources including Tres’ built-in dual envelopes and LFOs and external CV sources from elsewhere in your Reason project. You can also route external sources for audio-rate filter FM and use Tres’ built-in envelopes and LFOs to modulate other devices within your session.
Tres comes with a comprehensive library of over 200 unprocessed and Combinator patches, developed in conjunction with Nucleus Sound Lab.
