Buffre Beat Repeater

Thursday, June 14th, 2012 | 10:28 am and filed in Reason, peff, Rack Extensions.

The PEFF Rack Extension Development Team is proud to introduce Buffre, a beat repeater effect device for Propellerhead Reason 6.5 that loops audio in sync with song tempo. Buffre is a performance effect, controllable in real-time from a MIDI keyboard or control surface, and supports Reason control voltage routings for creating modular-based stutter and glitch effects. The loop engine features several playback modes and can process audio segments from two measures down to a 4096th note.

Buffre features real-time reverse loop playback and sample rate control. Instantly add a backwards drum hit by switching to reverse mode, or adjust the pitch control to mimic the sound of a tape stop or spin up. Also, by capturing and manipulating extremely short audio loops, Buffre can synthesize granular audio textures.

Get Reason 6.5 and try Buffre

Rack Extensions require Propellerhead Reason 6.5 or Reason Essentials 1.5. Once installed, you can try Buffre and other great Rack Extensions available from the Propellerhead Shop:

Thank You!

For a small group of friends to develop a new bit of software for an entirely new technology was no small undertaking, and we are grateful for all the support and advice we’ve had along the way. Big thanks to all the people at Propellerhead Software for helping us throughout this project. Thanks to all of the beta testers who helped us debug, and many thanks to the Reason users we’ve met over the past few months who lent their ears and feedback.

    You did a fine job on Buffre! It’s the first RE that I picked up and it works beautifully.

    Fantastico! Buffre is truly something that I can see is a labor of love for you. This effect is “mangily” which is your specialty :-)

    One question:
    Are you planning on making/releasing OSC/Lemur templates? The one you are using in the Youtube vid that was going around of Buffre looks quite useful.
