Updating to reason 4
The user can always choose where to draw the line between simplicity and precision, allowing the software to remain useful at various levels of knowledge on the user's part.Reason 6 introduced audio recording (by incorporating Record), turning it into a digital audio workstation.
Reason 9 also has improved workflow and sequencer features such as bounce Audio-to-MIDI, (which creates a MIDI pattern based on detecting the notes played in a prerecorded piece of music), MIDI-to-Audio, (which allows a quick rendering of an instrument's selected MIDI pattern directly to an audio track), the capability to reverse MIDI patterns, and for the first time the ability to set window themes.
It also ships with a new library of over 1000 sound patches.
However, Reason 6.5 introduces rack extensions, which are rack instruments and signal processors that may be developed by third parties.
A stripped-down version of Reason known as Reason Adapted, which restricts the user to a limited number of devices, is packaged as bonus software with other audio software such as Pro Tools LE and Re Cycle. For the first time, Reason can directly sample audio It integrates all of the features found in Record 1.5 – such as the ability to record live sound, the mixing desk modeled on the SSL 9000k, and the Neptune pitch corrector – into its setup. As well as bringing all of Record's features into the Reason rack, Reason 6 is 64-bit and features three new effects units, as also audio transposing direct on the sequencer, and improved tuning and stretching algorithms: Reason 6 also requires a USB software protection dongle called the "Ignition Key" to prevent unauthorized use of the software.
Reason is a digital audio workstation for creating and editing music and audio developed by Swedish software developers Propellerhead Software.
