Reason is now a full featured virtual studio rack with all the tools and instruments you need to turn your ideas into music. You get a wide variety of sounds from its sound bank and your creativity will not be distracted with its intuitive flow. Reason helps you along in the creative process and is the music software that never gets in your way.

Making music should be as easy as powering up a computer, loading up a powerful piece of music software, and getting down to business. And it is. Reason version 5 is a virtual studio rack with all the tools and instruments you need to turn your ideas into music. And it's more than just a set of excellent synths and effects. It's a complete music system. Step into the age of Reason.

All-in-one wonder
Synthesizers, samplers, drum machine, REX file loop player, professional mastering tools, mixer, vocoder, world class effects, pattern sequencer and more. As many of each as your computer can handle. Reason is an infinitely expandable all-in-one music production environment, complete with its own realtime sequencer.

Although easy to learn and a breeze to use, Reason is an extremely flexible music system - a system that can be just as complex and advanced as you make it. With sophisticated tools such as the MClass mastering suite, the mighty Combinator device, or the all-powerful Thor synth, Reason will not just impress, but inspire you.

Need more gear?
No problem. Choose a synth, a drum machine, a loop player or any device from the Create menu, and it will instantly appear in your rack, logically patched into the signal chain. And because Reason is designed to go easy on your computer, you can repeat the process until you're more than happy. If you ever wished you had eleven samplers and ten compressors, Reason is definitely for you. And if you have created more machines than you have mixer channels, just create another mixer. The studio of your dreams is just a few mouse clicks away.

Control your controls
Each unit in Reason's virtual rack is edited from its own on-screen front panel. All the sliders, knobs, buttons and functions are right in front of you, ready to be tweaked, turned and twisted in absolute real-time. And all your front panel actions - filter adjustments, pitch bending, gain riding or panning - can be recorded and automated in the Reason sequencer.

Radical routing
A single keypress will turn Reason's rack around, and there you are, in patch cord heaven. Most audio connections are made automatically. When a new device is created, it appears immediately below the currently selected device, and Reason patches it into the system in the most logical way. Repatch by dragging the patch cord plug to the desired connector, or just make a pop-up menu choice. Most devices have one or more parameters controlled by Gate and/or CV. And all instrument devices have several Gate or CV output options. Combine this with easy, transparent patching, and you have connection power approaching that of a fully modular synth.

Reason 5

Out standing software, It has a ton of advance features...I've got to go deeper in reason and do a review on my site.

pc internal mic

can anyone tell me why the internal mic on my pc laptop is not being recognized when i create an audio track on reason 6.01? it does it on my mac automatically. thanks need help.

Disabled?

Check if your internal mic is enabled in the Recording devices window (right click on the sound icon on Win 7)

Audio Driver: shows no sound

I am attempting to use Reason 5.0 and the audio driver is showing now sound. I have contacted guitar center and they have told me to go to the properties to turn the audio on. I can not locate this option nor can i get the sound to work when I am trying to create a beat. Does anyone know how to turn the sound on? Thank you!

Woohoo!

I've been waiting for version 5 this for ages - can't wait to buy it!

Access Denied

I have been using Reason for about 2 years on my PC. I recently went to open a previously created reason track, and upon clicking the icon was prompted by the user license and an option to agree or disagree. I click "agree" and am prompted to insert the orkster cd and factory sound bank. After completion, the program states that access is denied. I have uninstalled the program, recycle, rewire...and then reinstalled reason, but the same thing happens when I try to open a previously created song. I have a legit license and all the CD's, and I have contacted Propellerhead for support. They recommended I perform a back-up and format my hard drive with a fresh op sys.

I dont want to do this. Has anyone had a similar problem, and if so....what can I do to fix this bug.

I am going to download the Reason 3.0 upgrade patch tonight to see if this fixes the program, but I am not holding my breath.

Any advice would be much appreciated!!!

Access Denied

OK...I did some research and found that there are updates and tweaks, fixes, dll's, etc. on the Propellarhead website.

If you have a purchased copy of Reason and have a serial key, you can set-up an account on thier website and you have access to version downloads and fixes.

I uninstalled my version 3.0.4, and reinstalled the update, reinstalled Orkster and the Factory Sound Bank, and then rebooted. Everything works great now and I am back-in-business!!!

So, long story short....Propellarhead customer support sucks, but they do have downloadable updates and tweaks that worked for me.

The orkester cd doesn´t work

Can´t get reason to start. The program just say "please insert the orkester cd", even when i have it in my cd. damn, please someone, help...

THIS IS THE ANSWER

I had the same problem. Drove me crazy for a week. This was my answer: Make sure the CD's name is correct. I had made copies of the CDs and it seemed to be doing nothing (the only option was "Quit") but when I made new copies of the CD with the correct name ("volume label") it picked it up. Note that if you do have the correct CD in, it will then also look for the other one (there are two rfl CDs).

the CD with Orkester.rfl on it should be named "Orkester"
the CD with Factory Sound Bank.rfl on it should be named "Sound Bank"

Magic.
