What We Think

I have been using Propellerhead's Reason for close to 20 years. For me, I treat it as a virtual rack of synths, with sub-mixing capabilities - rewiring it in my DAW. This allows me to have custom rack of instruments at my disposal, with the ability to balance levels, pan, and add effects all before it reaches the single fader in my DAW. Having the tools, instruments, effects, layering instruments and effects, track management, and the powerful interactive routing of Reason has made it a valuable tool for my studio.

    Wow

    Posted by Jordan FeRoss on Jul 20th 2017

    Finally Propellerhead adds VST hosting. I have used Reason since its early days over a decade ago. Previously I had to use Logic Pro X alongside but now that VSTs are supported I can finally sleep at night. It's the perfect sequencing DAW out there as I have tried many many DAWs. Nothing in my opinion comes close in the production world. I can do my preproduction all the way to mastering without moving back and forth between DAWs. Yes there's room for improvement but this is the right time to make the switch as I expect nothing but perfection from Propellerhead in the next version. The company actually listens to us consumers. Very happy with it. 5/5 stars on the next version for sure.

    It's time to be Reasonable

    Posted by Deane Patterson on Mar 4th 2008

    I've demoed Reason 1, 2 and 3. Pretty cool.

    But version 4 brings 2 vital ingredients: Thor and the arpeggiator.

    Thor is a massive synth that's kind of a modular synth without the patch mess and a hell of a lot easier to get going - and more powerful due to it's i/o capabilities.

    No more excuses - this thing can make sounds you've never heard before, but are usable.

    Used in conjunction with a wicked arsenal of fx and samplers, there are few limits to what you can get - and the combinator makes it manageable.

    If you are a preset whore like I am when a deadline looms, all the bases are covered, and I found it just as fast as Cubase and a good VSTi - but Reason is easier to add fx and routing to.

    The arpeggiator is even cooler than any I have encountered on a physical synth. With a tiny bit of work you get rolling notes gracefully streaming in all directions, but locked in tempo and sounding like I know what I'm doing.
