Propellerhead Reason Essentials Software Details

Just like its bigger brother, Propellerhead Reason Essentials puts making music in focus. From concept to completion, it comes with all the essential tools for turning good ideas into great songs. Reason Essentials comes with a great selection of instruments and effects in a virtual rack that builds itself, or can be tweaked to your heartâ??s contentâ?"drum machine, loop player, sampler, synths, reverb, delay, distortion and more. For guitar players, the built-in virtual guitar POD and bass POD from Line 6 bring a wide range of top quality guitar amps, cabinets and effects. The intuitive audio and MIDI sequencer makes recording and arranging your music a breeze.

With its generous sound bank and familiar creative flow, Reason Essentials has all the sounds and patches to let you focus on the music and finish that song faster and sounding better.

Reason Essentials comes with a selection of great-sounding, easy to use virtual instruments. The Subtractor is a polyphonic, subtractive synthesizer suitable for all types of synthetic sounds. The NN-XT is an advanced sampler for multisampled acoustic instruments and sample-tweaking trickery. Dr. Octo Rex is an eight channel loop player for that provides fast arranging and deep control of your loops, while Redrum is a simple but powerful drum machine with a built-in step sequencer.

Recording music is all about seizing the moment. Capturing a perfect performance â?" or even nailing that idea before it goes away â?" requires tools that are ready when you are. Create record ready audio tracks in an instant. Simply plug in, breathe out, and you're ready to go â?" Reason Essentials gives you unlimited audio tracks and instrument channels.

To help you arrange your tracks in a smooth, effortless way, Reason Essentials comes with a fast and flexible sequencer. Immediate and intuitive, the sequencer puts you in control of your arrangements, letting you move and edit parts as you go along. Every thinkable knob, button or fader can be automated with ease, and then edited and fine tuned.

As a perfect performance may be less than perfect from scratch, Reason Essentials features a swift and easy to use comp editor. Building the ultimate vocal track is as simple as selecting the parts that work and muting the ones that don't. Exit the comp editor and listen to the results; a perfect take containing only the good parts.

The acclaimed Propellerhead timestretch lets you play now and pick the tempo later. Change the song tempo and all your audio tracks will follow right along without any need for pre-processing of any kind. Need to slow your song down to nail a tricky passage? No problem. Just reduce the tempo, record your performance, and bring the tempo back up. The audio quality? Amazing.

Reason Essentials features a masterfully modeled mixing console that gives you a built-in two-band EQ on every channel, advanced effects handling, full automation, while that radio-ready master bus compressor gives you a big studio sound.

The Reason Essentials rack can be stacked with an infinite number of reverbs, distortion units, delays, dynamic processors, mastering EQs - everything you need to shape and color your sounds. Click and drag effects straight to the rack or load any of the expertly crafted patches.

With Line 6 bass and guitar amplifiers available for every single track in your Reason Essentials project, you are never short of the perfect tones and timbres. As the amplifiers are insert effects and don't affect the original instrument signal, you are free to change your amplifier and cabinet settings at any point in time - even after laying down your track.

The Line 6 guitar and bass amplifiers are expandable with more amps and cabinets through model packs available from Line 6.
