Propellerhead Software 182823 overview

  • 1Description

This electronic download version of the music production software Reason 9 Essentials from Propellerhead Software is a virtual studio offering instruments & effects, MIDI & audio tracks, and a dedicated professional mixer. Users can record to an unlimited number of audio tracks, and record-ready channels can be created in an instant. The software includes several workflow enhancements including Bounce-in-Place, Reverse MIDI, and Split Notes with Razor tool, as well as the introduction of Themes, which offers Default, Blue, or Dark background settings.

The Reason 9 Essentials comes with all the essential tools for turning good ideas into songs. It comes with a selection of instruments and effects in a virtual rack that builds itself or can be tweaked to your requirement—drum machine, loop player, sampler, synths, reverb, delay, distortion, and more. The intuitive audio and MIDI sequencer make recording and arranging your music simple. With its comprehensive sound bank and familiar creative flow, the software features the sounds and patches that let you focus on the music and finish better-sounding songs faster.

At the heart of the Reason Essentials is the virtual rack that builds itself as you create your song. Choose a synth, drum machine, loop player, or any device from the Create menu and it will instantly appear in your rack, logically patched into the signal chain. The rack can be populated with an infinite number of instruments, reverbs, distortion units, delays, dynamic processors, and mastering equalizers. While all audio connections are automatically made, a single key press turns the rack around for modifying the connections as required. Repatch by dragging the patch cord plug to the desired connector to build your own sounds.

For guitar and bass players, Reason comes with guitar and bass amp & cabinet models from Softube. With bass and guitar amplifiers available for every single track in your project, you are never short of interesting tones and timbres. With virtual amps you are free to change your amplifier and cabinet settings at any point in time, even after laying down your track.

A powerful, easy-to-use sequencer is positioned below the rack. Capture instrument performances and automation, record and overdub audio, or draw in your notes with the mouse. Any mistakes can be easily corrected, adjusted, or quickly spliced together from multiple takes. A composite editor assists in building the perfect track simply by selecting the parts that work and muting the ones that don't. The timestretch feature lets you play now and then pick the tempo later. Change the song tempo on the fly and all your audio tracks will follow right along. To slow your song down to nail a tricky passage, just reduce the tempo, record your performance, and bring the tempo back up. The built-in audio slicing automatically finds the individual hits in your performance, for correcting the timing of your recordings to match the feel of your song. Resample your audio recording as REX files and continue working with your sounds and loops in the devices in the rack.

Reason Essentials' masterfully modeled mixing console gives you a built-in 2-band EQ on every channel, advanced effects handling, full automation, while the renowned master bus compressor gives you a professional sound.

Note: Automatically get free upgrade to Reason 10 when released.
