About Reason

Reason comes in the shape of a classic studio rack, packed with all the gear you could possibly need: Samplers, Analog synths, Graintable synth, Vocoder, Mixer, Step time drum machine, Arpeggiator, Compressors, EQ and Effects – as many of each as your computer can handle.

A realtime multi-track sequencer provides full control over every detail, letting you create and edit your music quickly and intuitively. Reason is an all-in-one music production environment, complete with a massive soundbank containing sounds, loops and patches for all possible styles of music.

Sounding good has never been this easy Whether you’re a big time producer or a bedroom DJ, a pro musician or an absolute beginner, this application provides all the necessary tools for you to create, edit and mix the music of your choice, all within the comfort of your own computer.

Highlights in Reason 4:

  • Thor Polysonic Synthesizer: Thor is a semi modular synth with interchangeable oscillators and filters. With its six oscillator types, four filter types and endless modulation possibilities, this synth comes with a sound like nothing else on the planet.
  • RPG-8 Monophonic Arpeggiator: A powerful arpeggiator with multiple play modes, pattern function and much more.
  • ReGroove Mixer: ReGroove mixing is a way to work creatively with grooves, timing and feel in real time. Hands-on access to 32 channels of groove parameters will make this an essential tool for any musician who is serious about their beats programming.
  • The New Reason Sequencer: With a whole new look, a ton of fresh features and a completely new way of handling sequencer data, the Reason sequencer still offers the streamlined workflow Reason is famous for, but with a new level of sophistication.
New Features

Reason now comes in four different flavors. When you install, you can choose between four different language versions: English, French, German or Japanese. The language options means the entire application, from installer to menus and help files, will speak the chosen language!

Factory Sound Bank
Reason wouldn't be Reason without its huge Factory Sound Bank. The Sound Bank holds patches for all devices in Reason to help you get going instantly. These are the additions in version 4:
- Thor patches
- More Combinator patches, including arpeggio-driven patches using the RPG-8 arpeggiator
- Groove files for ReGroove
- New ReDrum drum patches - Song starters

Signature patches
Having the best sounding synth on earth is a lot more fun if you have a set of great patches to play with. We invited some of the world's leading synthesists and sound developers to add their own Thor patches to the Reason Sound Bank. They are:
- Daniel Wang
- Morgan Geist
- Pascal Gabriel
- Plaid
- Richard Barbieri
- Richard Devine
- Sonic Boom
- Tipper
- Two Lone Swordsmen
- Gordon Reid
- Vengeance

Tool Window
One new feature that will quickly ease its way into your workflow is the new Tools Window. This is a floating window containing all your most frequently used tools. Using the Tools window, you can create new devices by choosing from a device palette, fine tune your sequencer data from the Tools pane, or set groove parameters using the groove pane.

The device palette lets you drag-and-drop instruments and effects directly to the rack and place them just where you want them.

The Tools pane contains all of Reason's sequencer editing tools, allowing for quick access to everything from Quantization to vector automation cleanup and legato adjustments.

When you hit a channel's Edit button in the ReGroove mixer, the selected groove's parameters show up here for instant editing. Here is also where you can save your own groove files.

Combinator & NN-XT updates
The Combinator and NN-XT devices have both had minor revisions to make programming patches easier and more powerful. If you are not into making your own sounds, these changes may not mean much to you. If you do like to create your own Combinator setups or NN-XT patches, then you will like this.

The NN-XT has been given new features to edit multiple samples simultaneously, to chromatically auto-map samples and a new Group Mono function to let samples play polyphonically, but still be silenced by other samples in the same sample group.

The Combinator now has a transpose function that transposes notes sent to a device. Very handy to create splits. Other additions include performance data filters to stop certain types of data from being sent to a device, more flexible choice of Sources in the programmer and a function to automate the receive notes option, making it possible to switch between instruments in a Combinator patch.
