Propellerhead: ‘Reason 10 is the biggest content update ever’

Propellerhead’s new Reason 10 software is the biggest content update ever for Reason owners.

Reason 10 features two new synthesisers, three new live-sounding organic instrument devices, an acoustic piano, creative modulation device, and 3GB of drum loops and samples.

Europa Shapeshifting Synthesiser is a dynamically generated wavetable synthesiser with ‘extreme flexibility’. Users can apply a wide range of modulation to the waveform itself, before adding advanced spectral filtering, harmonics processing and the ability to draw their own custom waveforms.

With Grain Sample Manipulator, users can drop any sample into it and explore a wide variety of sonic variations using its selection of algorithms, ultra-flexible modulation, routing and effects.

In collaboration with Soundiron, Reason 10 includes three new sampled instrument collections. Klang Tuned Percussion includes ten sampled melodic percussion instruments, Pangea World Instruments includes 11 world instruments, and Humana Vocal Ensemble is a collection of choirs and solo vocals, ideal for a human touch or a bombastic film or game soundtrack. The new software also now includes Propellerhead’s Radical Piano instrument and Synchronous Effect Modulator – previously only available as rack extensions via the Propellerhead shop. In addition, Reason 10 comes with over 3GB of sample content in Reason Drum Supply and Reason Loop Supply.

We can’t wait to hear what music makers are going to create with Reason 10."

“I’m particularly fond of the new synths, Europa and Grain, that sets a new standard for what’s available in the box,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Propellerhead product manager. “With the two new synths, a plethora of sampled instruments, drums, loops and much more—we can’t wait to hear what music makers are going to create with Reason 10."

Reason 10 will be available for purchase worldwide on 25 October at a suggested retail pricing of €405/$449. Reason Essentials 10 will be available for €120/$129, while a Reason 10 upgrade (from any previous Reason version) will cost €129/$129. Propellerhead is also offering a grace period for customers who purchased Reason 9 on or after 1 September 2017.
