Propellerhead Software has upgraded Reason, their music production platform to version 8. Reason 8 premiers a completely redesigned user interface and streamlined workflow.
Reason 8 introduces a redesigned user interface with a whole new look and even smoother creative flow, while the new browser and search window provides immediate drag-and-drop access to inspiring samples, loops, and patches. Expanding on Reason’s included collection of instruments and effects are the new amps from Softube, bringing a variety of first-class guitar and bass tones to the rack. Countless workflow improvements make for a more streamlined music creation experience, allowing musicians and producers to move quickly from initial idea to a completed song. And with an ever-expanding selection of Rack Extension plug-ins available in the Propellerhead shop, Reason 8 provides everything users will ever need to make music.
The Future: “Reason 8 features a completely redesigned user interface and streamlined workflow that makes it easy to create amazing music, faster than ever.” Really?? Will it mean that users will have to spend one frustrating hour after another relearning their “instrument”?
Propellerhead Reason 8 will be available on September 30, 2014 for $449 / €405. Reason 8 Upgrade (from any previous Reason version) $129 / €129.
