Synthesizers, samplers, drum machine, ReCycle-based loop player, mixer, effects, pattern sequencer and more. As many of each as your computer can handle. Reason is an infinitely expandable music workstation on a CD-ROM, complete with its own realtime sequencer. Reason is easily one of the most sought-after and used desktop musical environments available today.

Infinite Integration
Reason not only supports all the major audio card standards, has an advanced MIDI implementation and syncs beautifully to external devices; it also integrates with other software applications in ways that will make life a whole lot easier for all you computer musicians out there.

What's New in Reason 3.0?

The Combinator
It's not an effect unit. It's not a synth. It sure isn't a sampler. It's... all of it. And more. The all new Combinator is a sophisticated device that allows you to build elaborate chains of Reason units - instruments, effects, pattern sequencers, you name it - and save as Combi patches.

The MClass Mastering Suite
Want big, tight, loud sounding tracks? Need extra stereo width, increased clarity, punchier bass? Say hello to MClass, the new mastering suite in Reason 3.0. MClass brings you four separate pro level mastering units designed to add power, presence and an overall professional feel to your Reason mixes.

For those of you with a more hands-on approach to making music, the revolutionary Remote technology in Reason 3.0 will be a welcome new feature. True hardware integration!

3.0 Browser
With the Reason 3.0 browser, the task of finding and loading sounds and patches becomes just as smooth and intuitive as the process of making good music in Reason.

3.0 Soundbank
Reason's sound palette is getting bigger, better, wider and wilder. The new sound bank in Reason 3.0 adds huge quantities of instruments, sounds and patches to Reason's already massive library. Focusing on carefully sampled musical instruments and useful Combinator setups rather than loops and beats, the new soundbank takes a more playable, more performance-friendly direction.

Line Mixer 6:2
Line Mixer 6:2 is a simple but effective 6-channel stereo line mixer. Built primarily for use in the Combinator, the Line Mixer 6:2 handles basic mixing and panning of Combi devices, but can of course be inserted anywhere in Reason: use it for submixing large drum kits, or to add extra mixer channels when Reason's main mixer is starting to fill up. Each of the six channels feature level and pan controls, mute and solo buttons plus an AUX send level control. Need more sends? Extra channels? Just create another Line Mixer.

Additional New Reason 3.0 Features:

  • Record automation on multiple tracks.
  • Copy automation between lanes and tracks in the sequencer.
  • New and improved Mute and Solo features in sequencer.
  • Faster loading of samples. Sample playing devices now load five times faster.
  • Improved sample playback timing and quality.

List of Other Reason Devices:

NN-XT Advanced Sampler - When Reason 2.0 arrived, it had a new sampler screwed into the rack. This is a highly advanced sampler with an impressive list of features and functions squeezed into it. Where the NN-19 is a "fast-track" sampler, this machine is for more demanding sampling tasks. The NN-XT is bursting with detailed programming options, but comes with an intuitive user interface, making it the perfect tool for both sound design and life-like instrument emulation. Just load up one of the included orchestral library patches, and you'll know what we're talking about.

Malstrsm Graintable Synth - The Malstrsm Graintable synthesizer features all imaginable filtering and modulation options, and a couple of unimaginable ones too; Try some real-time waveform stretching, some spectral modulation, or some awesome wavetable sweeping.

Subtractor Polyphonic Synth - The Subtractor has lots of knobs, buttons and sliders. Each of them are fully automated and any filter sweep or knob twisting will be recorded in the Reason sequencer just like you can record mixes in ReBirth. Unlike the ReBirth sequencer, you can edit every controller movement after you are done recording to get that final touch.

Redrum Drum Machine - Redrum is a drum machine with a built in pattern sequencer. It has ten channels that plays samples loaded by the user or sounds from a preset drum kit. In addition to the pattern sequencer, Redrum can also be played from Reason's main sequencer or via MIDI. By combining the pattern sequencer and the main sequencer you can easily create fills and variations to the patterns without having to create new patterns for every variation.

Dr. Rex Loop Player - Dr.Rex can play REX and .rcy files created with ReCycle. When you open a new ReCycled loop in Dr.Rex you can load up the corresponding MIDI data in a special REX editor in the sequencer where you can move the slices around to create the beats you want. This way you can take a drum loop and rearrange it any way you want.

NN-19 Digital Sampler - Since the first digital samplers started to appear during the early 80's, samplers have evolved from primarily being used to reproduce existing instruments to becoming instruments in their own rights. In fact, the sampler has been one of the main influences on modern music during the 90's and producers have used them for such diverse tasks as spinning in vocals, create drum grooves, play music loops, emulate acoustic instruments, create unique sounds, remix and... Well the list goes on and on.

Matrix Analog Pattern Sequencer - If you are into 70's style modular synths or if you simply like to play around with a analog style sequencer that can control virtually anything in the rack, take a close look at the Matrix. The Matrix is an analog style sequencer with a maximum of 32 steps per pattern and is really the part of Reason to use for ReBirth style sequences. Just like ReDrum, Matrix has 32 patterns and each can be freely sized regardless of what time signature has been chosen in the sequencer.

The Rack - The rack is the framework in which you create the studio setup you choose to work with, creating your tracks. The rack has four main parts: The MIDI in device, the Audio out device, the Sequencer and of course, the rack space where you put your gear.

Spider Audio & Spider CV Mergers & Splitters - If you ever feel the need to merge or split some Audio or CV signals, these two eight-legged utilities are perfect for the job.

RV7000 Advanced Reverb - The RV7000 is advanced and flexible without ever getting too complicated, and lets you dial in your desired reverb sound in seconds, and saving it as your own preset. The future of reverberation, only for Reason users.

BV512 Digital Vocoder - Besides being a 4 to 512-band vocoder capable of modulating sound in both old-school analog style and digital FFT fashion, this unit also doubles as a fully automated equalizer with a twist. The BV-512 can be used for everything from classic robot vocals to weird harmonic effects.

Scream 4 Sound Destruction Unit - Built for breakage and designed to destroy, Scream 4 turns distortion into an artform. Imagine having all your favourite distortion pedals and overdrive boxes transformed into one shiny, rackmounted Reason device.

UN-16 Unison - Unison is exactly what the name suggests; a software reincarnation of that mysterious "Unison" button on those early eighties synths. Transformed into a Reason rack unit. UN-16 Unison fattens up incoming sound by emulating the effect of 4, 8 or 16 detuned versions of the incoming sound playing the same note. In ultra-stereo. The result is rich and wide and slightly similar to a chorus effect, only much fancier.
