Propellerheads proudly announced that Reason 3.0, the latest version of their award winning music production instrument, is now shipping. This update focuses on live playing and this new version will take Reason from the studio realm to the stage. Reason 3.0 comes packed with unique features that will make it a strong alternative to the hardware workstation synthesizer, whether for composing, producing or live playing.
Reason 3.0 is now pre-configured with new Remote technology for use with all the leading controller keyboards and control surfaces on the market. To use Remote, all the user needs to do is to hook up any supported controller to the computer and Reason will identify it and handle pre-configured controller mappings for all Reason devices. Reason 3.0 integrates more remote keyboards with tighter implementation than anything that has been ever done before. Reason’s Remote technology supports over 35 controllers with more to come.
Reason 3.0 also comes with the MClass mastering tools. The suite consists of a mastering EQ, a stereo imager, a sweet sounding compressor and a maximizer to further polish one’s sound. At the heart of the Reason 3 is the Combinator device. It’s a grouping device, a rack within the Reason rack, that lets the user load complex instrument patches consisting of any number of Reason devices then play them as one instrument. The result is an extremely flexible yet simple-to-understand way of playing and creating rich-sounding instrument patches, complete with effects and modulation setups.
Reason 3 is now available for a MSRP of $449EUR/$499USD. For more information, visit their web site at www.propellerheads.se or check out our Reason 3.0 product page (link below).
