Rack Extensions
« on: April 14, 2013, 06:49:47 PM »
Which rack extensions have you purchased, which are your favorite and why?

Also have you had any issues with latency or artifacts when using rack extentions? I've been experiencing latency for the first time in Reason since I started using it, with the release of rack extensions. I can't think of what else could be causing it.

There are quite a few rack extensions for effects but I've been kind of disappointed with the selection of instruments as rack extensions. Reason always had good stock sounds but not having VST's is by far my biggest dissatisfaction in Reason.
My favorite rack extension so far has been Radical Piano, it reminds me of the Alicia's Keys plugin in terms of versatility in a piano plugin, but I actually like it better than Alicia's Keys. Here's a video reviewing the Radical Piano Rack Extension:

Radical Piano looks nice. I'm trying to get a good feel for what other people have liked and not liked so much before I buy anymore. Like you said the instrument selection is somewhat disappointing and limited, but there has to be some good ones.
