Quad Note Generator

The Player device that creates an endless stream of musical ideas.

Create melodies, rhythms and harmonies you wouldn’t have thought of with Quad Note Generator. This new Player Device from Propellerhead Software will help create bass lines, leads lines or other musical phrases to fit your music, based on scale and your preferences for rhythm and variation.

It can generate melodies on its own or respond to your keyboard playing. Working with Quad Note Generator is a bit like having a co-writer along that says “what if we try this” when you create music.

You can use Quad Note Generator in several ways. Use it as your starting point to help you set off in a direction with your song. Or use it to spice up something you are already working on. If you like, you can record the Quad Note Generator performance into Reason’s main sequencer to for final editing.
