Software Overview

Propellerhead Reason is a digital audio workstation (DAW) used to create and edit music and audio. The application gives you tools to work on a project from start to finish and share and collaborate your work with other musicians.

Reason provides a large variety of synths, drum machines, loops, and samples to choose from to create your sound. You can also record live instruments or install instrument add-ons to add to your composition. You can choose from a large amount of high quality studio effects and easily apply them to your audio by dragging and dropping them onto a track. The DAW features the Scream 4 Sound Destruction Unit to mangle sound, Pulverizer Demolition to make a sound-crunching effect, and Neptune Pitch Adjustor to bring a vocalist into key.

When you finish composing your music you can share and collaborate your work with other musicians through Allihoopa, a creative hub for music. The whole experience is enhanced with Reason's intuitive and powerful interface, which is designed to act and feel like a musical instrument. You can experiment by connecting Control Voltage connectors, easily browse samples, sounds, and loops, twist knobs and push buttons just like a real instrument.

Reason is used by musicians around the world to create and collaborate with each other. Propellerhead Reason offers a unique experience for producing music and audio. It features a workflow that helps musicians in the creative process but doesn't skimp on functionality or flexibility either. If you are looking for a high quality DAW that will enable you to create and edit your music and audio, Propellerhead Reason is a great choice.
