Reason is a virtual studio rack with all the tools and instruments you need to turn your ideas into music. It emulates a rack of hardware synthesizers, samplers, signal processors, sequencers, and mixers, all of which can be freely interconnected in an arbitrary manner. Reason can be used either as a complete virtual music studio or as a collection of virtual instruments to be played live or used with other sequencing software.
With its generous sound bank and intuitive flow, Reason helps you along in the creative process and is the music software that never gets in your way. Walk into any professional recording studio and you will see racks filled to the brim with different tools used in music production from reverb to compressors, vocoders, synths, distortion units, and parametric EQs. Unlike a real studio, however, if you want another synth or an extra compressor you can create one from a menu rather than taking that second job or signing up for those experimental clinical drug trials.
Included with Reason is a huge sound bank full of inspiring instruments, synth patches, loops, and effects. Patches have been created by producers like Death Cab for Cutie's Jason McGerr, Bomb Squad's Hank Shocklee, Black Eyed Peas' Printz Board, DJ Lucky Date, Kill the Noise, and more.
. Hardware Interface - The Hardware Interface handles the connection between software and hardware and supports up to sixty-four separate outputs. As it is integral to Reason's functionality, it cannot be removed.
. Mixer 14:2 - Reason's mixer is used to group numerous device outputs into a stereo output. It has fourteen stereo channels with level meters, fixed bass and treble EQ and four stereo auxiliary sends. It is possible to mute or solo any given channel, as well as alter its level, pan and auxiliary output level. The console has chaining master inputs to allow several line mixers to be daisy chained together, effectively allowing for an unlimited number of channels.
. Line Mixer 6:2 - Similar to the Mixer 14:2, and also known as the Micromix, it is a smaller, six channel mixer, with only one auxiliary send and return, no EQ, smaller level controls and limited metering.
. Subtractor Analogue Synthesizer - Subtractor is a polyphonic synthesizer device based on subtractive synthesis, which is the method used in classic, analog synthesizers. Its two oscillators can produce basic waveforms such as square, sawtooth, triangle, and sine. Additional waveforms based on samples can also be generated. The Subtractor device can be completely automated from a controlling device, such as Reason's sequencer.
. Thor Polysonic Synthesizer - The Thor device simulates a semi-modular synthesizer. Six filter and oscillator slots let you load up three different filter modules and three different oscillator modules simultaneously, allowing you to dial in novel sounds. A modulation matrix gives you complete control over your signal flow, letting you modulate anything within Thor. Thor also has a simulation of an analog style step sequencer with more than one twist.
. Malstrom Graintable Synthesizer - The Malstrom device creates its sounds using Graintable technology. This technology is a cross between granular synthesis and wavetable synthesis. Malstrom features many filtering and modulation options. It is capable of real-time waveform stretching, spectral modulation, and wavetable sweeping. Malstrom comes with a wide range of Graintables.
. NN-19 Digital Sampler - The NN-19 device is Reason's original sampler, introduced in the first version. All of the controls on the NN-19 can be fully automated from a controlling device. There are two ways of getting sound out of NN19: load a single wav/aiff sample or load a sampler patch. Loading a single wav/aiff file will instantly transpose the audio across the keyboard by speeding up or slowing down the playback of the sample. The NN19 can import and play mono or stereo files.
. NN-XT Advanced Sampler - The NN-XT device is an advanced sampler with many features. It is designed for working with multiple samples which can be assigned to different keys on the keyboard. It can be used for both sound design and instrument emulation. Useful features include alternate sample playback, auto-pitch detection, keyboard zones with individual parameters, and tempo syncable LFOs.
