Just starting out on your musical journey or well on your way to your next album? Wherever you are, Reason's legendary rack of synths, instruments and effects is ready to turn good ideas into great music. On its own or in your favourite DAW as a VST plugin.
Reason is easy to get into but as deep as you want it to be. Reason's inviting rack of instruments and effects is a sonic playground where inspiration comes to life. Create, compose, mix and finish your music - Reason will help you along the journey, from inspiration to mixdown.
All music, no distractions:
Reason is designed to act and feel like a musical instrument. What you see is really what you get. No hidden screens, sub-menus or dialogs to flip through. Drag and drop instruments and sounds, tweak anything you see on screen and save it all in a single document.
All the control at your fingertips:
Twist knobs, push buttons, move faders - Reason's interface looks and feels like an instrument and seamlessly integrates with your favourite hardware controller. Record your knob and fader movements to create rich, automated mixes. As easy as that.
Flip the rack over to access the backside with all the audio and CV cables and connectors. Here you can manually route anything to anything, just like in a real studio. Or simply leave it to Reason to automatically hook it all together, unlike a real studio.
