Shape-shifting synthesizer

Europa combines the most advanced synthesis you’ve ever heard with the most accessible controls you’ll experience. Morph between 30+ wavetables—from traditional analog waveforms to complex, dynamic waveforms that respond to your performance. Create epic pads, huge chords, aggressive biting basses, and everything in between.

Load your own samples

Create your own custom wavetables based on samples. Just load your favorite pre-recorded synth, drum sound, vocal or even a loop to start exploring it’s hidden capabilities as new synth material or even as a filter.

Transform your sound

Europa includes our advanced Spectral Filter for sound processing that traditional analog filters only dream of. Use the powerful harmonics processor to remix, rearrange, and recalculate harmonic overtones to create anything from experimental atmospherics to polished leads. Follow up with more traditional analog modeled filters that tame and shape the result.

Everything in modulation and effects

Europa features four powerful envelopes, three LFOs, advanced modulation capabilities, and flexible reverb, delay, modulation, and distortion effects to sculpt sounds unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.

Europa is a magnificent instrument, belting out enormous, wildly animated sounds of incredible depth, complexity and character, but also more than able to serve up phat, solid basslines, workhorse pads or elemental leads when required. – MusicRadar

…this beast is as sonically varied as you want it to be. – MusicTech

With Europa, Propellerhead has delivered not just an inspiring and musical tool, but one that extends their reach to users far beyond the Reason platform. – SonicScoop
