Introducing: Reason Rack Plugin

The Perfect Expansion to your DAW

Plug a huge supply of premium synthesizers, sampled instruments and effects into your favourite DAW. Reason 11 adds the Reason Rack Plugin–a VST, AU and AAX version of the legendary Reason Rack with all its devices, creative sound design, modular routing and a huge library of loops, sounds and samples.

Your Dream Rack is Here

Create any sound you want by dragging instruments and effects to the Reason Rack. Everything is automatically connected for you in a logical top-to-bottom flow.

Start with an instrument. Add an effect by dropping it under the instrument. Add a MIDI Player effect by dragging and dropping to the top.

Sound Supply

For quick access to amazing sounds, find what you need in among thousands of synth patches, sampled instruments, loops and sounds created by world-class sound designers.

You’ll find patches for specific devices or Combinator patches that combines any number of instrument and effects to deliver just the sound you need.

Patch Cord Paradise

Scary to some and strangely alluring to others, the backside of Reason’s rack is where you can go all-modular with the free routing of audio and control voltage signals. Control synth filters from envelope followers, control panning with LFOs or split up the audio signal to create huge sonic landscapes with parallel processing.

If this isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry. You can make music in Reason without ever diving into cable-town.

Compatibility

....

  • Reason’s rack, instruments, effects and sounds are all included in Reason Rack Plugin, while sequencing and mixing is left to the host DAW.
  • Reason Rack Plugin appears as an instrument and effects plugin in the host.
  • Supported plugin formats: VST3, AU & AAX

Reason as a Studio

Set your Creativity Free

From your first beat to your next album, Reason is the music production software that helps you nail those ideas when inspiration strikes. Easy to get started with, yet as deep as you want it to be, Reason’s intuitive music-making gadgets and professional production tools will get you off the ground and keep you occupied for a long time to come.

Sequencing

Record, edit, arrange. Simply connect your MIDI controller and start making music—no setup required. Capture MIDI performances and automation, or draw in notes with the mouse. Whatever suits your workflow, Reason's sequencer is fast, flexible and fun. Keeping with Reason’s famous ease of use, Reason's sequencer still comes with all the editing features you need. If your playing is too tight—use the ReGroove Groove Mixer to add more human feel.

Recording

Record your audio with ease. From a simple vocal take to a full band recording session, the recording workflow is easy and fast. No dialogue boxes to break your flow. Need to nail a tricky performance? The comp editor helps you stitch multiple takes together to a perfect take. You can even record first and pick a tempo later. Reason’s legendary project-wide tine stretch will change the tempo of your entire song without any audible artifacts.

Mixing

Reason gives your tracks that big studio sound right out of your computer. Faithfully modeled after the famous SSL 9000k* analogue mixing desk, Reason's mixer comes complete with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, advanced effects handling, full automation, groups and parallel channels, and the famous master-bus compression. The spectrum analyzer window and visual EQ makes it easy to fine-tune the sound of your tracks from anywhere in the program.

Audio Editing

With your audio safely recorded in your project, Reason can help you polish your tracks to perfection. Slice Edit helps you correct the timing problems in your recordings, from subtle tweaks to hard quantize. Reason’s Pitch Edit can quickly correct the pitch in a vocal recording and gives you detailed control over pitch, time and articulations in the performance. And the best of all: It sounds good. Really, really good!

Sampling

All sample players in Reason are also samplers. Hit the sample button on the instrument’s panel and start recording straight into the selected instrument, bringing the lost art of creative sampling back again. All samples can be trimmed, edited and normalized in Reason’s built-in sample editor.

Blocks

Intro, verse, chorus–if that’s how you think about your music, then Blocks might help you build your songs. Create your song’s discreet parts and use Blocks as a very fast way of creating a musical structure for your song. With the basic arrangement laid out, you can see the contents of the blocks and create variations and mute individual parts, or add further musical elements on top.

REX

With REX loops you turn concrete-rigid loops into musical modeling clay, letting you change tempo, pitch and timing independently, and remodel the groove to suit all your musical purposes. Playing them back in Reason’s Dr. Octo Rex even lets you deconstruct the loops and create fills and variations that recorded loops can’t provide. Reason can turn audio recordings into REX files on its own, but for expert-level control you might want to try ReCycle.

Instruments & Effects

Inviting, easy to use and with a sound to die for: Reason’s synthesizers, sampled instruments, drum machines and effects are the true stars of the Reason experience.

Europa

A wavetable synth at heart; Europa is the most powerful, most modern and biggest sounding synth for your next track and the many more to come. The heart of Europa is its three spectral wave engines, where waveforms are loaded and warped through traditional wavetable sweeps and spectral waveform modifiers. Add to that a set of unique spectral filters, customizable envelopes, fantastic effects and more and you’ll be ready to realize that Europa isn’t just the greatest synth to arrive in Reason. It’s the greatest synth to arrive. Period.

Thor

Where other synths use one specific form of synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six different oscillator types and four unique filters. What does this give you? An unstoppable monster of a sound generator, Thor utilises synthesizer technology from the last 50 years. With its unique selection of oscillator types and filter designs, the Thor Polysonic Synthesizer is a veritable synth museum. But there’s nothing dusty about this instrument. Thor may have one foot in history, but its sound is pure future.

Kong

Kong Drum Designer is not your regular drum module. It’s the drum module focused on giving you exactly that drum sound you’re after. Kong has 16 pads and 16 drums. Build your drum sounds based on any of the nine different drum modules. Flavour the sound with 11 support generators and effects. Program automation, create alternating groups and let Reason’s powerful sequencer drive the beat.

Radical Piano

Radical Piano will change the way you use pianos in your music by allowing you to imagine a piano in a real space and set about creating it yourself through intuitive controls. Based on a custom blend between sampling technology and physical modeling algorithms, Radical Piano affords songwriters, producers, and sound designers an unprecedented level of control to craft a realistic piano that is 100% unique.

Scenic

Scenic combines an advanced sound design engine with an inviting user interface. When composing, use the clock handles of Scenic’s performance controls to quickly animate or try out variations to your sound. If you want to go deep or create your sounds from scratch, switch to EDIT mode to dive into Scenic’s sound sculpting tools.

Scenic is built around two discrete sample engines. Each can play samples in a regular fashion or have its Granular Engine turn the sampled material into tiny grains of sound. These grains can be set to play back in any number of ways, resulting in a distinctly surreal sound that goes well with the sonic territory Scenic is set to carve out.

The sounds in scenic are created from the 100+ multi-sampled instruments and sound effects built into the instrument. With a comprehensive filter suite, an advanced modulation matrix. five separate effect processors and a set LFO and pulse generators, the sound design power of Scenic is truly awesome.

Complex-1

Complex-1 is a modular synthesizer from Reason Studios, bringing the quirks, freedom and sonic depth of modular synthesis to your Rack. If you’re a seasoned modular synth enthusiast, you can dive right in. If this kind of synth is new to you, load up any of the included patches to get you going, and start your sonic exploration there. Nothing can break, and if things go weird (like, in a bad way), and there’s the undo button to your rescue. Boasting a 4x oversampled synthesis engine, a freely routable signal and modulation path and a sound like nothing else, Complex-1 is a synth lover’s dream machine.

Sweeper

Add more colour with this high quality, multi-talented modulation unit with expansive dynamic modulation options. Sweeper offers three separate stereo modulation effects: phaser, flanger and filter. The pristine-sounding phaser offers up to a whopping 40 stages for some extreme phasing sounds. The Flanger excels at the sweeping sounds you’d expect from it while the filter section is the oversampled filter from Europa with nine filter modes. To breathe life into the effect, Sweeper has a modulator with a looping envelope, an audio follower and audio trig to modulate just about any of Sweeper’s settings.

Master Bus Compressor

Reason’s trusted ready-for-radio bus compressor is now available as a rack device. The sound is identical to the Mixer’s master bus compressor, but the rack unit offers expanded CV control, dry/wet settings and the ability to apply the compressor magic anywhere in your signal chain. How would your drum mix sound with its own Master Bus Compressor?

The Echo

The Echo is an advanced stereo echo bringing together the brilliance of modern delays with the organic sounds of analogue circuitry and old-school tape machines. The Echo is equal parts pristine stereo delay, sound sculpturing toolbox, and playable performance effect. Add Delay, colour, modulations and triggers to your Rack. The Trigger and Roll modes let you play The Echo as an instrument, creating stutter and repeat effects on the fly.

Scales & Chords

Add scale awareness to your instruments with Scales & Chords. Select your key and scale from a list of common and not-so-common scales and your playing will always be in key. Turn on the chords button and have Reason add one finger chord magic that fits right with your music. With controls for chord colouring, number of notes, inversion and more, you have a very helpful harmonic tool at your disposal.

New Features in Reason Suite 11.2

Beat Map (Reason Suite Only)

Beat Map is a new Player that generates notes in a fast, fun, intuitive way. Designed primarily for drums, Beat Map takes away some of the complexity of writing great beats by using algorithmically-generated patterns to come up with unexpected and interesting results.

MIDI Out/Drag MIDI Notes to Track

Use Players to sequence any instrument in your DAW and convert CV signals to MIDI CC with the new MIDI Out Device. Also now you can drag MIDI clips directly from Redrum, Dr OctoRex, and Matrix to your sequencer for seamless music-making.
