Propellerhead Announces Free Reason 9.5 Update with VST Support

Reason’s legendary workflow opens up new and creative ways to use VST plugins

Stockholm, Sweden, April 28, 2017 – Propellerhead Software today announced Reason 9.5, the newest update to the award-winning Reason music production software. Reason 9.5 is a free update for Reason 9 owners that introduces VST support – the number-one feature request by both Reason and non-Reason owners alike.

Drag and drop from the browser, use CV and audio connections with your plugins, play in new ways with Players, put them in Combinators with Reason’s own devices or Rack Extensions. Explore a new workflow and discover new creative ways to use VST plugins with Reason 9.5.

“Today’s music makers need access to all the great software instruments and effects out there – but without compromising their creative process,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager. “Opening your favorite VST plugins in Reason taps into Reason’s legendary workflow, from simply playing your favorite instruments to using the audio and CV connections for a truly modular music-making experience."

Reason 9 was released in June of last year and introduced a host of new devices, sounds and creative tools that inspire music makers to create more and better music – from creative spark to polished production. Since Reason 9’s release, Propellerhead has released two free updates, bringing Ableton’s Link technology to the Reason rack and improving their Rack Extension SDK with highly requested features.
