Product details

Rhythm Combo & Synchronous included

For a limited time only, we give away a fantastic rhythm section and a brand new modulation plug-in when you buy Reason 7.

Reason Drum Kits is a live drum recording session in a ReFill. It captures every aspect of the included kits: the drums themselves, the room surrounding them, the drummer, the unique sound of the mics and outboard used in the recording.

The Reason Electric Bass ReFill puts eight fully playable electric bass guitars into your Reason rack. Featuring selectable basses and bass rigs, this ReFill lets you add dynamic, natural sounding bass lines to your productions.

Synchronous is a modulation plug-in that offers rhythmically synced effects that bring your music to life. With the built-in waveform tools, you can easily draw and dial in Distortion, Filter, Reverb, Delay and Level for anything from side-chain pumping and tremolos to beat-repeating and tweaked out wobbles.

New in Reason version 7

Reason 7 comes with MIDI out support to bring the sound of your favorite 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. Record your instruments and let Reason automatically slice the recording into single notes or hits. Use it 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.

Reason 7 adds several new ways to make mixing your songs better and easier. The new bus channels make it easy to group your tracks, and even group your mixer groups to process them together. Create parallel channels with a single click for separate processing—for quick New York style parallel compression and other tricks used by leading mix engineers today. 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.

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.

Audiomatic Retro Transformer is a psycho-acoustic future retro effect with plenty of personality. Add Audiomatic to any instrument, channel or group — or the whole mix — and select one of the 16 snapshots, like Tape, VHS, vinyl, gadget or even mp3, to instantly sprinkle audio magic over your tracks.

Whatever your music needs, Reason has a rack for that!

Build your songs in Reason’s sequencer with the included synths, samplers, loop players and drum machines. Add guitar, vocals, MIDI synths, or record your entire band. Finish your tracks in the built-in million-dollar mixing console.

With an inspiring sound bank and intuitive flow, Reason catalyzes your creative process. Easy to get started with and as deep as you want it to be, Reason is the software that keeps you focused on what matters most—your music.

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 Propellerhead and other developers—from modern effects to vintage instruments.

Reason's Rack

At the heart of Reason is a virtual rack that builds itself as you create your song. Create instruments and effects and route them any way you want. Add, delete, replace and tweak. Your rack is what you want it to be. Need more gear? No problem. Choose a synth, a drum machine, a loop player or any device from the Create menu and it will instantly appear in your rack, logically patched into the signal chain.

A single keystroke will turn Reason's rack around, and you'll find yourself in patch cord heaven. All audio connections are made automatically. When a new device is created it's automatically patched in for you. If you ever want to go deep, repatch by dragging the patch cord plug to the desired connector.

Reason's Sequencer

The powerful yet easy to use sequencer comes with all the editing features you need. Capture MIDI performances and automation, record and overdub audio, or draw in your notes with the mouse. Any mistakes can easily be corrected, adjusted or quickly spliced together from multiple takes. If your playing is too tight—use Reason's ReGroove Mixer to add more human feel.

With the renowned time stretch you can record first and pick your tempo later. And thanks to audio transpose you can even record first and change the key later. Change the tempo of your song on the fly, and the audio follows right along, in real time. Non-destructively change the pitch, correct the timing of your audio recording, or use the automatic audio-slicing to turn your performance into something completely new. Resample your audio recording as REX files and continue working with your sounds and loops in the rack.

Reason's Mixer

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 famous SSL 9000k**analog mixing desk, with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, advanced effects handling, full automation, groups and parallel channels, and its famous master-bus compression. The spectrum analyzer window with visual EQ control—new in version 7 of Reason—makes it easy to fine-tune the sound of your tracks from anywhere in the program.

Rack Extensions

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 Propellerhead and other developers—from modern effects to vintage instruments. 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.

Browse and purchase all Rack Extensions in the Propellerhead Shop, and even download fully functional trial versions to load into your rack.
