DAW Expansion Reason 12 - the perfect expansion to your DAW
Plug a huge supply of premium synthesizers, sampled instruments and effects into your favorite DAW. Reason 12 adds the Reason Rack Plugin–a VST3/AU/AAX version of the legendary Reason Rack with all its devices, creative sound design, modular routing and a huge library of loops, sounds and samples.
Reason Rack Your dream rack is here
Create any sound you want by dragging instruments and effects to the Reason Rack. Everything is automatically connected for you in a logical top-to-bottom flow.
Start with an instrument. Add an effect by dropping it under the instrument. Add a MIDI Player effect by dragging and dropping to the top.
For quick access to amazing sounds, find what you need in among thousands of synth patches, sampled instruments, loops and sounds created by world-class sound designers.
You’ll find patches for specific devices or Combinator patches that combines any number of instrument and effects to deliver just the sound you need.
Patch cord paradise
Scary to some and strangely alluring to others, the backside of Reason’s rack is where you can go all-modular with the free routing of audio and control voltage signals. Control synth filters from envelope followers, control panning with LFOs or split up the audio signal to create huge sonic landscapes with parallel processing.
If this isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry. You can make music in Reason without ever diving into cable-town.
Reason’s rack, instruments, effects and sounds are all included in Reason Rack Plugin, while sequencing and mixing is left to the host DAW.
Drag MIDI clips directly from Redrum, Dr. OctoRex etc to your sequencer.
Reason Rack Plugin is available as a VST3 plugin (macOS/Windows), an AAX plugin (macOS/Windows) and an AU plugin (macOS).
