Propellerhead Reason 3.0
Less Fuss, More Inspiration
As a Reason user, you can forget about the downsides of music production. Forget malfunctioning modules and confusing connections. Reason's cables don't tangle. Forget about tiny backlit displays and steep learning curves. Reason is so direct you'll learn it in minutes. And forget the tedious process of gathering all the different disks and sound banks needed to load up a song. With Reason, picking up where you left off be it last night or last month is as simple as turning the power on. When you save your music, your whole studio setup is stored along with it. You can even include your samples, loops and drum kits in the Reason file, for easy web publishing or email collaboration with other Reason users. For once, total recall is truly total. And so is the sound. The audio quality is everything you would expect from Propellerhead Software. But pristine sound quality is only half the story; the instruments and effects in Reason are loaded with character and attitude. Although easy to learn and a breeze to use, Reason is an extremely flexible system that's as complex and advanced as you make it. And with sophisticated tools such as the MClass mastering suite, or the Combinator, which lets you build new instruments and effects by combining and layering Reason devices, Reason will not just impress, but inspire you.Control Your Controls
Each unit in Reason's virtual rack is edited from its own on-screen front panel. All the sliders, knobs, buttons and functions are right in front of you, ready to be tweaked, turned and twisted in absolute real-time. And all your front panel actions filter adjustments, pitch bending, gain riding or panning can be recorded and automated in the Reason sequencer.Radical Routing
A single keypress will turn Reason's rack around, and there you are, in patch cord heaven. Most audio connections are made automatically. When a new device is created, it appears immediately below the currently selected device, and Reason patches it into the system in the most logical way. Repatch by dragging the patch cord plug to the desired connector, or just make a pop-up menu choice. Most devices have one or more parameters controlled by Gate and/or CV. And all instrument devices have several Gate or CV output options. Combine this with easy, transparent patching, and you have connection power approaching that of a fully modular synth.Need More Gear?
No problem. Choose a synth, a drum machine, a loop player or any device from the Create menu, and it will instantly appear in your rack, logically patched into the signal chain. And because Reason is designed to go easy on your computer, you can repeat the process until you're more than happy. If you ever wished you had eleven samplers and ten compressors, Reason is definitely for you. And if you have created more machines than you have mixer channels, just create another mixer. The studio of your dreams is just a few mouse clicks away.

Not a Totally Original Opinion, I Don't Think


from Cape Town, South Africa

Reason is great, no doubt about it. It's really versatile. It got a bad wrap for making songs sound distinctively "Reasoney" but everyone said my music didn't have that sound, so my only tip is to avoid all the presets on the synths, and then you should sound quite fresh. The only problems were that you have to record in another program, and it can't slice drum beats like most other programs nowadays can. It's not quite an all-in-one solution in that way - it should accompany ReCycle, also by Propellerhead, for slicing beats, and a multitrack recording program. Good luck! I highly recommend the program despite all that.. It's incredibly intuitive and easy to get used to, and you can easily set up hardware controllers to operate it.

This program is really all you need for making professional sounding beats. The new M-class mastering suite is a very powerful tool. The EQ device is one of my favorites. The new orkester sounds are great. It still has all the features of the old reason reverb, synths, vocodor. I recently upgraded to this version and for some reason the sound quality of this program is just better.
