Propellerhead Software 120900012 overview

  • 1Description

Reason 9 from Propellerhead Software is a virtual studio offering synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and effects, coupled with MIDI & audio tracks, and a dedicated mixer based on the world-class SSL 9000K recording console.

The software includes several workflow enhancements including Audio-to-MIDI, Bounce-in-Place, Reverse MIDI, and Split Notes with Razor tool. The included Player Devices offer MIDI insert effects including Scales & Chords, Note Echo, and the Dual Arpeggiator. Additionally, the Pitch Editor allows for high-quality pitch correction from within the sequence window. Reason 9 includes 5,000 instrument patches, 1,000+ mixing/mastering effects, and over 3,000 loops.

Users can record to an unlimited number of audio tracks, and record-ready channels can be created in an instant. A composite editor assists in building the perfect track simply by selecting the parts that work and muting the ones that don't. Non-destructive time stretching allows for recording first and picking a tempo later, while non-destructive pitch change is done with a mouse click.

The software includes MIDI out support to bring the sound of hardware synthesizers and beat boxes to the Reason rack. MIDI is handled by an External MIDI Instrument device, which is fully integrated into the Reason environment. Automating MIDI equipment from Reason's sequencer or even from control voltages in the Reason rack is very simple to set up. Additionally, the software can automatically slice audio recordings into single notes or hits for further creative control; to quantize a take, tweak timing to perfection, or to drastically change the recording using time stretching. 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.

A fast and flexible sequencer comes with vector and tempo automation, count-in, multiple lane tracks and Blocks mode. The floating window provides fast access to those detailed editing functions used all the time: quantize, transpose, note velocity, note length and legato. When creating songs, many musicians tend to think of music in terms of intro, verse, chorus, breakdown, buildup, etc. With Blocks mode, the sequencer does too, allowing the sequencing of songs using a more pattern-based approach, with the segments of the song laid out in an arrangement as individual building blocks.

The ReGroove Mixer is a real-time, non-destructive groove management device that can lock all the tracks together into one unified feel, or different settings can be applied to up to thirty-two musical elements in a song. Rack Extensions open up the Reason rack to third-party developers. While not a new plug-in format, they function in a similar manner in that they "plug-in" to the rack, but retain the same hierarchy as any other Reason component. Load them into Combinators, route cables on the back, automate all parameters, and experiment with the safety of undo.

Note: This item is for registered users of any Reason limited, Adapted, or Essentials version who wish to upgrade to the full version of Reason 9. Automatically get free upgrade to Reason 10 when released.

What's New in Version 9
  • Player Device
    • Scales & Chords: transposes incoming notes to fit a set scale, or transposes notes and generates chords that fit the desired scale. Scales & Chords has a number of built-in preset scales, and you can also create your own custom scales
    • Note Echo: Simulates a MIDI delay effect, by adding repeats of the incoming MIDI notes. The Note Echo device is polyphonic, so you can get repeats of entire chords. Each repeat of the echo can be pitch allowing for the creation of glissandi and other pitch effects.
    • Dual Arpeggio: The Dual Arpeggio device accepts one or several notes as input and generates rhythmic patterns based on these notes. You can use it as a traditional “monophonic” arpeggiator, where arpeggio lines are played back one note at a time, based on the notes you play/hold on the MIDI control keyboard, or use it in Pattern Mode, where you can create polyphonic (up to 4 notes) rhythmic patterns, depending on how many notes you play/hold on your MIDI Control Keyboard
  • Pitch Edit: Correct and/or transpose the pitches of individual detected notes in monophonic recordings. Pitch Edit mode is developed especially for editing and correcting the pitches of vocal recordings. The audio pitch editing is made graphically in a way similar to other pitch correction/editing software on the market
  • Workflow Enhancements
    • Bounce in Place: Lets you bounce the sound generated from playing back note or audio clips, with any insert effects and channel strip coloration, but without Send FX and Master Section settings, to a new audio clip on a new audio track
    • Reverse MIDI and Automation: Reverse note (and automation) clips and events, i.e. play the events of the clip “backwards” (from the end to the start)
    • Split Notes with Razor Tool: Split (slice) one or several notes in an open note clip
    • Themes: Choose from Default, Blue, or Dark visual themes, which determine how the user interface is visually presented
    • Audio to MIDI: Sing your melodies, hum your bass lines. Monophonic audio clips can now be exported to MIDI with a single click
  • Updated Sound Bank: Over 5,000 instrument patches, 1,000+ mixing/mastering effects, and over 3,000 loops

Softube Guitar and Bass Amplifiers

The Softube Guitar Amp and Softube Bass Amp are amplifier and speaker cabinet simulators based on the renowned modelling algorithms developed by Softube. The two devices feature accurate simulations of some of the most coveted vintage amplifier and cabinet models, that you can freely mix and match

Guitar Amp Models

  • Twang: A silvery American classic, great for clean and slightly overdriven guitars. Popular for country, blues and more
  • Crunch: British 60's classic that keeps its chiming, present character whether you play it clean or drive it so hard it's on the verge of breaking down
  • Rock: A yummy, warm, fat, tube distortion. Just like Mama used to make it
  • Lead: The boogie man has come in all his high-gain glory! Screaming leads and power chords that sustain for days

Guitar Cabinet Models

  • Bright: A 2x12 cabinet with deep lows and heavenly highs. The oh-so-familiar dynamic mic is placed on axis but still lets a hint of room into the sound
  • Room: A more midrange present 2x12, with the small-diaphragm dynamic mic placed off axis and a wide stereo room added
  • Fat: Fat, solid 4x12 classic. Captured with a German condenser microphone on axis for that full-bodied sound
  • Tight: Slightly midrange-scooped 4x12 cabinet. The large-diaphragm dynamic microphone gives an in-your-face presence

Bass Amp Models

  • Modern: A contemporary version of a classic tube design from one of the most popular bass amplifier brands. Modern has all the clarity and punch you'd expect from a modern amplifier, but still with the pleasant three-dimensionality that well-designed tube amplifiers offer
  • Vintage: Vintage gives you a dark, dirty, steamy bass sound that adds power and attitude, and helps making the bass instrument cut through the mix

Bass Amp Cabinet Models

  • Dark: A classic 8x10 cabinet with a snappy response across the frequency spectrum. Captured with a German large-membrane dynamic microphone, straight on axis for a clear sound and a rock solid low end
  • Bright: A British 4x12 bass cabinet with great midrange presence. The dynamic microphone is placed off axis for a slightly roomy sound
  • Room: A 4x10 cabinet, captured with a German classic large-membrane condenser mic at a distance. Roomy with a nice depth and width that caters for a very natural sound in the mix



Alligator Triple Filtered Gate
  • Three-channel pattern-based gate effect
  • Three parallel filters, distortion, phaser and delay
  • Each channel has a separate gate controlled by the sixty-four included patterns, triggered from the sequencer, the Matrix and RPG-8 Arpeggiator devices, or via a MIDI keyboard
  • Each channel runs through either a high-, band-, or a low-pass filter
  • Pan and volume controls

The Echo
  • Stereo echo combining modern delays with the organic sounds of analog circuitry and old-school tape machines
  • Settings for delay time, tempo sync, stereo width, and pitch
  • Ping-Pong bounces the delayed signal from left to right
  • Offset provides a wide stereo spread
