Get inspired, create faster and have more fun making music with Reason’s redesigned interface and streamlined workflow
Stockholm, Sweden, September 30, 2014 – Propellerhead Software today announced that Reason 8 is now available for purchase. This major new version of the award-winning Reason music production software introduces a completely redesigned user interface and streamlined new workflow that sparks your creativity, moves you faster from idea to music and is more fun than ever.
“Musicians and producers love Reason because it’s both fun and inspiring,” said Leo Nathorst-Böös, Propellerhead Product Marketing Manager. “For Reason 8, we’ve introduced a new creative flow that feels second nature to exploring sounds and developing songs. Whether you have lots of experience or just starting out, Reason is the fastest way to develop musical ideas and capture your inspiration.”
Reason 8 introduces a redesigned user interface, fresh new look and even smoother creative flow. Quickly and easily access your sounds, loops and patches whenever you need them using a new browser and search window—a one-stop-shop for creative inspiration. Dial-in incredible guitar and bass tones with a collection of new amps from legendary circuit modeler Softube—simply plug in your instrument, crank up the volume and experience the uncompromising tone, response and dynamics of the world’s finest classic amplifiers.
Reason 8 also features countless usability improvements that put the flow back in workflow. Drag-and-drop from anywhere to anything and work faster with fewer clicks. Edit your tracks quickly with more powerful sequence note editing. Reason 8 lets you flow seamlessly from initial idea to completed song. And, with an ever-expanding selection of Rack Extension plug-ins available in the Propellerhead shop, you can easily expand your rack to include everything your music needs—now and in the future.
