INTUITIVE & FUN
Inspire your sound with Reason’s intuitive flow and limitless sonic palette. It’s everything you need to write, record, remix and produce unique, original tracks. And with the new music-making service, you can share the process with musicians worldwide to create a masterpiece together.

This machine transforms sound
Give your tracks that million dollar sound with Reason's studio grade mixing console. Faithfully modeled after* the legendary SSL 9000k console it comes with all the sound-sculpting tools you’ll need—full dynamics, EQ, filter and effects—on every channel, plus lightning-fast bussing and signal routing. The Reason mixer will be your weapon of choice to tap into the clarity, punch, and analog characteristics of your favorite records.
This package sparks ideas
Find all sounds, instruments and effects you need in Reason’s dynamic browser. With everything your music needs always within reach, Reason is fast and lean. It won’t get in the way of your creativity, but rather help you along by letting you work your way.
This tool develops emotions
Make music the way you want to, and Reason’s sequencer and audio recording will be there to help you. Always adapting to you and your working methods, Reason's sequencer simply gets more music done faster.
This platform amplifies creativity
Expand your sound palette with Rack Extensions. Though Reason comes with everything you need to make music, adding new sounds can be a creativity boost. Rack Extensions are add-on instruments and effects that plug right into the Reason Rack.
