Propellerhead Software Reason

Reason Image

Analog synth, sampler, drum machine, ReCycle!-based loop player, mixer, effects, pattern sequencer, and more. As many of each as your computer can handle. All the power of hardware, but without the hassle. Forget tripping on cables. Reason doesn't need dusting. Picking up where you left off is as simple as turning the power on. When you save your work, your whole studio setup is stored along with your music.

In the following pages, we examine each of the Devices in the Reason Rack Studio. So click ahead to the next page for more about Reason!

Love Reason flexibility, stability and user interface.


Just some corrections to the Specifications presented here:
Output: it doesn't export as mp3 natively.
Control: it isn't a VST, so it can't be controlled as a VST. It's Standalone or ReWire slave only app.
Est. Value: Reason 4 is now 349.00 USD (as of 2010)

Def one of the best progs ever made in history i think.

I mean it kicks the crap out of most apps which only allow certains functions, whereas Reason boasts a sequencer/arranger, along with Processors, synths, Samplers, and Mixers.

What more could you ask for....???

.......i like to use reason 3.0 ('cause it's what i got right now) even though i'd love to have 4.0 with Thor, RPG8, Regroove, etc. 3.0 is still the beef of Reason though.....create massive rack stacks.....midi is great...... synths (malstrom ....beatmachine/sampler (redrum)....samplers (NN19 NNXT)...connectivity....effects......I choose Reason over fl studio any day.....you have so much more room for creativity........great tools........i like to sync its midi to my korg ms2000 or electribe es-1 or control Reason's parameters via midi......endless possibilities........it greatly complements many other softwares or hardware
