Algoritm (nope, not a typo 😉), the new FM synth by Reason Studios, is a bundle of pure fun! 9 operators that can be routed any way your heart desires to design all kinds of FM and not-so-FM sounds. 🤯 Here's a pack of 33 free presets that I created for Algoritm. An audio preview of some of the presets is coming soon.
✨🎛️ Algoritm is the new FM synth par excellence by Reason Studios. It's FM, but with a twist, because operators can also be filters, sound shapers (think saturation) or even traditional / waveform oscillators. Combine up to 9 such operators and route them however you'd like and this allows to create a virtually infinite palette of sounds. From the softest of pads sounds to the nastiest screeching leads. You can check out the official page for Algoritm it here.
Algoritm is included as part of the Reason+ subscription, or it can also be purchased separately. Either way, it's meant to be used as part of the Reason Rack plugin, just like all the other instruments by Reason Studios.

How to use the Algoritm Presets
Just unzip the downloaded file into a location where you'd like to keep your presets. Next, just browse to that location from the browser in the Reason Rack plugin and drag and drop any of the presets onto an instance of Algoritm in your rack.
