Our history

1994

ReCycle

ReCycle’s instant success launches Propellerhead, founded by Ernst, Peter and Marcus. ReCycle changes how chopped samples and loops are used in music and is still and industry standard across DAWs.

1997

ReBirth

In 1997 the classic TB-303 Roland Bass Line and TR-808 Drum Machine hardware was crucial to electronic music and virtually unattainable. ReBirth puts software versions of these machines onto computers we already had.

2000

Reason

With its virtual cable and modular approach to music making, Reason brings a complete studio of hardware synths, effects and devices into any musician’s reach, creating a new category of software, the instrument host application.

2009

Record

Record introduces audio recording and editing with a large format mixing console and empowers music makers to create complete productions entirely within Reason.

2012

Rack Extensions

Reason’s virtual Rack becomes a virtual playground of third party “Rack Extension” instruments and effects, expanding Reason from dozens of Rack devices to hundreds.

2018

Mobile Apps

Reason’s sound comes to mobile devices with uncompromising quality but a radically reimagined way of making music to meet phone form-factors and early musical explorers.

2019

Reason Studios

Propellerhead rebrands as Reason Studios, unifying its brand around Reason. Returning to our roots as a leading creative instrument and effect developer, Reason runs as a native plugin in any host software. Reason is everywhere.
