Virtual studio rack

At the heart of Reason is a virtual rack where you craft the sounds your music
needs, from scratch or from Reason’s huge library of sounds. Synthesizers,
instruments, and effects—as many as you need. Reason covers every need from the
synthetic and electronic to acoustic and organic.

As you build your rack, everything is automatically connected and routed for you. If
you want to dive deeper, turn Reason’s rack around and you’ll find yourself in
modular heaven! Experiment and play around until you find the sound you are after by routing audio and control voltage freely between devices in the rack. Your
imagination is the only limitation to what you can build.

With a multi-gigabyte supply of synth sounds, sampled instruments, drum kits, loops,
and effects, Reason's built-in sound bank comes packed with everything you need to
make any style of music. The integrated browser helps you quickly find and try
thousands of sounds across a huge sound library.

Reason for music production
When used standalone, Reason is a powerful virtual studio for fast and creative
music production.

Capture your musical ideas in Reason’s powerful sequencer. Record and edit audio,
MIDI or automation with powerful recording and editing tools. Always in sync with
your flow, forever adapting to you and your working methods, Reason's sequencer
simply gets you there faster.

Reason has a unique take on tempo, key and pitch. Record first and decide on
tempo later with Reason’s always-on, real-time and project-wide time stretch. Want
to try a new key? Transpose your audio and retain the tempo. Fine tune your vocal
performances to perfection with Pitch Edit. Or rework, resample or reshape your
recordings into something completely new.

When finalizing your song, Reason's mixer gives your tracks that big studio sound
right out of your computer. The Mixer is faithfully modeled after the legendary SSL
9000k* analog mixing desk, with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, full automation,
groups, and parallel channels, and its famous master-bus compression.

Extending your rack
When you're looking for even more creative options, Reason Rack Extensions come to the rescue. You can expand your virtual rack with new, inspiring instruments and effects created by developers around the world—from modern effects to vintage instruments. Rack

Extension plugins are full rack citizens, giving you a fully integrated experience.
