Earlier this year Reason Studios announced the release of Reason 12. Since then, users of the subscription service Reason+ have been given early access to some of the new features. Reason 12 is available for purchase as of today and includes the all-new Combinator, where users can combine several Reason devices and package them up into one single device that can be saved and shared as a reusable preset. The Combinator is now highly customizable and lets the user change panel size, knobs, faders, buttons, and graphics to build the perfect patch—powered by Reason’s synths and effects inside.
A new look, a new sampler, and a whole new way of dialing in your sound, Reason 12 is all about leveling up the creative potential at the heart of your music-making experience. The Reason Rack is one of the most powerful and flexible sound design and beat-making tools for your music. It’s a virtual studio rack packed full of instruments, synthesizers, drum machines, sound-shaping effects, Player MIDI effects, and mixing tools that come together to make your sound possible.
The release of Reason 12 also includes a long-awaited graphics update. All Reason Rack devices are now shown in full HD and automatically scale to the size ideal for any monitor’s resolution and pixel density, with custom zoom to suit any workflow. The update also applies to every third-party Rack Extension add-on ever made.
Make music your way – plugged in or standalone
Reason’s Rack of legendary synths, instruments, and effects can now be used in your favorite DAW with the Reason Rack Plugin (VST3/AU/AAX). Reason 12 includes both the plugin version and the standalone Reason music production software so you can make music the way you like.
