About Reason

Reason is an integrated software music production studio with audio recording, million-dollar mixing, 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 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's 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 Reason's 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's powerful sequencer. Record and edit audio, MIDI or automation with powerful recording and editing tools. Quantize MIDI or audio to fix timing problems, or use ReGroove's swing magic to breathe life into your sequences. Always in sync with your flow, forever adapting to you and your working methods, Reason's sequencer simply gets you there faster.

Record first and pick your tempo later with Reason's renowned time stretch. And thanks to audio transpose you can even record first and change the key later. Fine tune your vocal performances to perfection with Pitch Edit. 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.

Mixing

When finalizing your song, Reason's mixer gives your tracks that big studio sound right out of your computer. The Mixer is faithfully modeled after the legendary SSL 9000k*analog mixing desk, with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, full automation, groups and parallel channels, and its famous master-bus compression.

Extending your rack

When you're looking for even more creative options, plugins 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. Reason supports VST plugins and Reason's own Rack Extension format. Rack Extensions are full Reason rack citizens, giving you the same fully integrated experience as when using any of the included synths, effects and utilities.

VST plugins are right at home in the Reason rack. Drag & Drop from the browser, use CV with your plugins, add Players, put them in Combinators with Reason's own devices or Rack Extensions # all the things you expect when working in Reason!

Sounds

With a multi-gigabyte supply of synth sounds, sampled instruments, drum kits, loops and effects, tailored to fit a wide range of genres and styles, Reason's built-in sound bank is packed with everything you need to make music. The integrated, always open browser makes finding the right sound across a huge sample library a breeze. Want more? Expand your palette with a world of ReFill libraries#sound libraries custom-made for Reason.

CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: As of version 10 with full on VST support combined with its already extremely powerful sound design capabilities, Reason has developed into the most powerful DAW for creative sound design. Those into Ambient, Cinematic, or Film Scoring should take a second look if you've written this software off in the past as a Hip Hop or Techno friendly DAW. At this point, even singer-songwriters and Rock musicians could find a load of useful features in Reason. Highly recommended for all music makers.
Style of Music: Rock, Ambient, Cinematic, Hip Hop, Indie.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Sound: The sound is incredible. There's tons of great sounding instruments to use right out of the box for any genre of music and any level of musician. The SSL mixer inside of Reason gives you a channel strip for each track you create, making it easy to dial in some EQ, remove noises with the expander/gate, compression, etc. Feature: Well the features go on forever. Tons of effects. Tons of instruments. Solid sequencer. Being able to pitch correct vocals directly within Reason's sequencer is so useful and sounds great. Now that there's VST support, the instrument options are almost endless. Ease of Use: I find Reason very easy to use. For the most part, the program stays out of your way when creating music. You can tell Propellerhead has put a lot of effort into make this so. There is some learning curve for sure but that's true with any DAW. I was intimated by the SSL mixer and all the device cabling and routing at first, but that went away after a week. You can find many high-quality tutorials on the Props website, YouTube, and also some paid tutorials that go into greater detail if needed. The documentation on Propellerhead's site is pretty good also.I do think the learning curve with Reason may have some benefits over other DAWs because the entire program is modeled as if you were using real-world outboard gear. You can wire devices, effects, etc using cabling just like you would in the real world. You have the freedom to wire things together how you want, which is great for learning about sound design and experimenting. That knowledge can then translate to other things. I'm no longer intimidated when I look at big studio consoles with thousands of knobs. I have a similar console in my DAW that I use every day, and it's just some EQ, compression, gates, send effects, and some side-chaining (mostly). Quality: Everything within Reason feels and sounds high-quality to me. I have never had Reason crash, not even with over 80 tracks running on an older iMac littered with plugins. The program feels like a lot of time and effort went into making a quality product. Value: For everything you get, I think this product is actually under-priced when compared to other DAWs. Manufacturer Support: Any contact I've had with Propellerhead they have always been responsive and friendly. The Wow Factor: Real-world hardware cabling and device emulations. It feels like I have a huge professional music studio in my home but without the hassle of running all that gear. I'm always inspired to make music with Reason. Overall: Propellerheads and Reason have come a long way over the years. Reason 10 is an awesome release! It's hands-down my favorite DAW and I can't imagine making music without it. zZounds has been wonderful to work with also!
