One thing that I have wanted for a long time in Reason is a new delay effect that I could play like a musical instrument.

Puliveriser Demolition – The new way to shred your sound in Reason 6

The first time I used Pulveriser, I did not read the instruction manual. I simply put it on a drum loop, twisted a couple of knobs, and immediately my drums went from “ok drums” to “totally bad ass twisted evil awesome drums.” At that moment I knew: We are going to hear people using Pulveriser on a lot of music from here on out!
