Propellerhead Reason 9 Essentials

Effortlessly create your dream studio with Reason Essential's modular rack. Music making in Reason Essential means joyful exploration and endless possibilities.

Never short on great sounds

Get creative with Reason Essentials' legendary instruments, synthesizers, drum machines, samplers and more. With its huge collection of sounds, you'll be making music in no time. It's everything you need to get started making music.

Sound amazing

Record and edit your music in Reason Essentials' sequencer. Find your tone with guitar amps from Softube. Sculpt and polish your tracks to perfection with straightforward mixing tools and a massive rack of effects.

About Reason Essentials

Reason Essentials is an integrated software music production studio with audio recording, all the editing tools you need, built-in collaboration tools and a massive collection of instruments, sounds and effects. It's the perfect choice for writing recording, remixing and producing great-sounding tracks.

Virtual studio rack

At the heart of Reason Essentials is a virtual rack that builds itself as you create your song. Fill your rack with as many devices as you need to get your sound. Reason Essentials' legendary instruments and effects cover every need from acoustic and organic to electronic and synthetic.

As you build your rack, everything is automatically connected and routed for you. If you want to dive deeper, turn the rack around and you'll find yourself in cable heaven! Craft the sound you are after by routing audio and control voltage freely between devices in the rack. Your imagination is the only limitation to what you can build.

Recording

Capture your musical ideas in Reason Essentials' powerful sequencer. Record and edit audio, MIDI or automation with powerful recording and editing tools. Always in sync with your flow, forever adapting to you and your working methods, Reason Essentials' sequencer simply gets you there faster.

Record first and pick your tempo later with Reason Essentials' renowned time stretch. And thanks to audio transpose you can even record first and change the key later. Non-destructively change the pitch, correct the timing of your audio recording with Slice Edit. Or rework, resample or reshape your recordings into something completely new.

Extending your rack

When you're looking for even more creative options, Rack Extensions come to the rescue. Expand your virtual rack with new, inspiring instruments and effects created by developers around the world--from modern effects to vintage instruments. Rack Extensions are full rack citizens, giving you the same fully integrated experience as when using any of the included synths, effects and utilities.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
