Give Me A Reason

Propellerhead has announced a new major version of its Reason music software. The company has focused its attention on improvements for the mixer, the rack and the sequencer. Reason 7 allows users to integrate all their instruments into Reason with MIDI out, automatic audio slicing and audio quantize, and convert recordings into REX loops. For mixing, Propellerhead has introduced a spectrum analyser with visual EQ controls; group and parallel mix channels; plus workflow improvements. Reason 7 has made it easier to import audio from users’ music libraries and the web, with support for MP3, AAC, WMA and more. The enhanced Factory Sound Bank has many new loops and drum kits, while the Audiomatic Retro Transformer effect adds a ‘futuristic-vintage sound’ to any track.
