Propellerhead Reason 7 delivers the latest version of this award winning software platform, offering a range of enhancements that are designed to help you create music with ease and enjoyment. Propellerhead Reason 7 gives you all the tools you need, from a killer line-up of soft synths, to state-of-the-art audio recording and sequencing. In addition, Reason 7 comes loaded with an extensive array of digital effects and sound processing modules, which add that finishing touch of polish to your tracks for delivering professional productions.
The Reason rack has seen an exponential growth over the last few years with the introduction of unlimited audio recording, studio grade mixing tools, and support for third party instruments and effects. With Reason 7, that growth continues so you can take your mixing to the next level, placing Reason at the heart of your studio, and to continue to inspire you in your music making.
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. Reason 7 brings even more to the mix, featuring MIDI out support, allowing you to add the sound of your favourite hardware synths and beat machines to the Reason rack. MIDI is handled by the new 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.
With Reason 7 you have more creative control over your audio recordings. You can Record your instruments and let Reason automatically slice the recording into single notes or hits. Or use Reason 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.
With its studio-grade mixing console, Reason was already a mix engineer's dream. Reason 7 adds several new 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.
The new bus channels make it easy to group your tracks, and even group your mixer groups to process them together. This allows users to create parallel channels with a single click for separate processing, delivering quick New York style parallel compression and other tricks used by leading mix engineers today.
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 new 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.
As an added 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.
Propellerhead Reason 7 also comes with an expanded sound bank that adds a new and 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.
