Reason 7, Propellerhead's flagship digital audio workstation (DAW), adds a slew of revamped features and creative tools to its comprehensive set of existing synths, instruments, and effects, giving computer-based musicians and producers a powerful program for music creation. MIDI out support makes it possible integrate hardware synths with the Reason rack, a built-in spectrum analyzer window provides visual feedback of your mix, and the Audiomatic Retro Transformer effect unit adds a "future-retro" flavor to your sounds. Automatic slicing, an expanded sound bank, unlimited hard disk tracks, non-destructive time stretch and pitch transpose, and a comp editor for vocals round out the extensive list of improvements you will find in Reason 7, all designed to help you make more music, fast.

MIDI Out Support Adds More to the Mix

Now that Reason comes with MIDI out support, you can introduce the sounds of your outboard gear to the Reason rack of instruments. Integrating hardware synths and drum machines with Reason software has never been easier! MIDI is handled by the External MIDI Instrument device, an integral part of the Reason environment, and setup is super simple. Automate MIDI equipment from Reason's sequencer or even from control voltages in the Reason rack.

Better Tools for Better Creative Control

When you record your instruments, Reason will automatically slice the recording into single notes or hits -- a useful feature for quantizing an audio take, fine-tuning your timing, manipulating and mangling your sounds, and more. You have the option to convert the sliced-up audio to REX files for playback and further editing in Reason's Dr. Octo Rex Loop Player, Reason's samplers, or the Kong Drum Designer.

Level and Pan Controls in the Reason Rack

Allowing you to focus more on your music and less on hunting down mixing controls, Reason 7 puts important controls like level and pan front and center in the Reason rack. Likewise, you can mix faster with channel groups and buses -- the bus channels make it easy to group your tracks, and even group your mixer groups to process them together. One click is all it takes to create parallel channels for separate processing and achieve New-York-style parallel compression.

Built-in Spectrum Analyzer

For even more control over your mix, Reason 7 boasts a built-in spectrum analyzer window that gives you at-a-glance info on what's happening with the selected channel or bus. The Spectrum EQ window combines a spectrum analyzer with a graphic EQ overlay controlling the mixer's EQ. With the new window, you can easily adjust the EQ on your tracks from anywhere in the program.

Build the Ultimate Vocal Track

Don't worry if your vocals aren't perfect on the first take. Using Reason's comp editor, you can take your vocal track and select the parts you like and mute the ones you don't.

Change Up Your Sounds with Audiomatic Retro Transformer

Just for kicks, Propellerhead boosted Reason's fun factor with Audiomatic Retro Transformer to Reason, a creative effect designed to add a retro-futuristic sound to your track. Applying the effect is easy -- just add Audiomatic to any channel or group and select a snapshot.

More Loops, Import Formats, and Hard Disk Tracks

Reason 7's expanded sound bank offers even more drums loops suitable for big room house, dubstep, and even metal genres. Support for more audio import formats such as MP3, WMA, and AAC gives you greater flexibility when importing your own sound files into Reason. This version of Reason also provides unlimited hard disk tracks!

Adjust Tempo and Pitch Without Sacrificing Audio Quality

Non-destructive time stretch allows you to record first and choose your tempo later, without affecting audio quality -- a convenient way to lay down difficult passages or figure out where you want to go with a song. Change the song tempo and all your audio tracks will follow right along without any need for pre-processing of any kind. The same goes for Reason 7's non-destructive pitch change tools. On the fly, select your desired audio tracks, pitch it up or down a semitone, a whole note, or even a whole octave, all in real time.

Product Description

Propellerhead Software proudly presents Reason 7. This incarnation of the world's favorite music software brings a slew of enhancements to help you create more and better music -- and have even more fun doing it.

Drive Hardware Synths with MIDI Out Support

With instruments that are easy to use, infinitely tweakable, and with a sound to fit any style, Reason has always offered a wide array of sonic capabilities. Now, Propellerhead is adding even more to the mix. Reason 7 comes with MIDI out support to bring the sound of your favorite hardware synths and beat machines to the Reason rack. MIDI is handled by the External MIDI Instrument device, fully integrated into the Reason environment. Automating MIDI equipment from Reason's sequencer or even from control voltages in the Reason rack is a breeze to set up.

Slice Audio into Single Notes -- Automatically

With Reason 7 you have more creative control over your audio recordings. Record your instruments and let Reason automatically slice the recording into single notes or hits. Use it to quantize an audio take, to tweak your timing to perfection, or to drastically change the recording by going all creative with Reason's fantastic time stretch. The sliced up audio can also be converted to REX files for playback and further treatment in Reason's Dr. Octo Rex Loop Player, Reason's samplers, or the Kong Drum Designer.

Now in Rack View: Mixer Level and Pan

With its studio-grade mixing console, Reason was already a mix engineer's dream. Reason 7 adds several ways to make mixing your songs better and easier. Reason users tend to spend a lot of time exploring and tweaking sounds in the Reason rack, so the most important mixing controls like level and pan are now available in the rack too, always close at hand. This means less jumping about in the program and more focus on your music.

Mix Faster with Channel Groups and Busses

The bus channels make it easy to group your tracks, and even group your mixer groups to process them together. Create parallel channels with a single click for separate processing -- for quick New York style parallel compression and other tricks used by leading mix engineers today.

See Your Sound: Built-in Spectrum Analyzer

For increased control of your mixes Reason now has a built-in spectrum analyzer window, giving you instant visual feedback on the selected channel or bus. The Spectrum EQ window combines a powerful spectrum analyzer with a graphic EQ overlay controlling the mixer's renowned EQ. Easily adjust the EQ on your tracks from anywhere in the program.

Audiomatic Retro Transformer

Users tell us again and again that two of the most important aspects of Reason is that it is fun and inspiring. As a creativity boost, Reason 7 comes with Audiomatic Retro Transformer -- a future-retro effect unit with plenty of personality. Add Audiomatic to any channel or group and select a snapshot to instantly change the sound of your track. More details about the Audiomatic Retro Transformer are coming soon.

More Drum Loops, More Import Formats

Reason 7 also comes with an expanded sound bank that adds a powerful section of hard hitting drums loops: big room house, dubstep, and even metal. It's all there, ready to be thrown into your tracks. For importing your own sound files into Reason, there is now support for more audio import formats, such as mp3, wma and aac to make it easier to grab loops and recordings from your music library or the web.

Unlimited Hard Disk Tracks

Capture your ideas with a minimum of mouse clicks and menu actions. You have unlimited hard disk tracks and rock-solid audio recording in Reason.

Fast Audio Recording

Recording music is all about seizing the moment. Capturing a perfect performance - or even nailing that idea before it goes away - requires tools that are ready when you are. Reason is always ready. Created with musicians in mind, Reason lets you create record ready channels in an instant, minimizing the steps between idea and actual recording. The result equals more music - and fewer dialog boxes. Simply plug in, breathe out and you're ready to go.

Comp Editor for Vocals and More

As a perfect performance may be less than perfect from scratch, Reason features a swift and easy to use comp editor. Building the ultimate vocal track is as simple as selecting the parts that work and muting the ones that don't. Exit the comp editor and listen to the results; a perfect take containing only the good parts.

Reason's Legendary Time-stretch

With our now legendary non-destructive time stretch, you can actually record first and pick your tempo later. Reason has a unique twist on the concept of time and tempo. Change the song tempo and all your audio tracks will follow right along without any need for pre-processing of any kind. Need to slow your song down to nail a tricky passage? No problem. Just reduce the tempo, record your performance and bring the tempo back up. The audio quality? Amazing.

Non-Destructive Pitch Transpose

Non-destructively change the pitch of an audio recording with a mouse click. Just select the audio tracks, pitch it up or down a semitone, a whole note or even a whole octave. The choice is yours. All in great-sounding, real-time, of course.
