STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Aug 28, 2018 - Propellerhead Software today released the free Reason Compact mobile app for iOS. Reason Compact puts Reason’s flagship Europa synthesizer right at your fingertips so you can quickly capture your creativity whenever inspiration strikes. Get started quickly and easily with innovative features like the smart keyboard, note grid and Chords tools, then expand when you’re ready. You can even export your ideas and finalize them on your desktop with Reason 10 or Europa VST.

“Making music on your phone has always required musicians to have either great skill or make compromises in sound, features, or flexibility—until now,” said Hanna Åstrand, Product Manager at Propellerhead. “With Reason Compact you have everything you need to get started making music right on your phone. Start with an inspiring preset, lay down a melody with the smart keyboard, and touch up your performance with the note grid. It’s that easy—with Reason Compact you can make music everywhere.”

Reason Compact features intuitive controls and informative tutorials to help you create amazing synth sounds in seconds. Reason Compact is loaded with over 35 presets made by world-class music producers for instant inspiration.

Create unique synth patches with 16 different types of waveforms, then morph and transform your sound with the Shape controls. Add depth and texture to your tracks using built-in effects like reverb, delay and Unison effects. Export MIDI sequences, instrument patches and song files to your desktop and finalize your ideas with Reason 10 or the Europa VST plug-in.
