About Reason Essentials
Reason Essentials is an integrated software music production studio with audio recording, all the editing tools you need, built-in collaboration tools and a massive collection of instruments, sounds and effects. It’s the perfect choice for writing recording, remixing and producing great-sounding tracks.
Virtual studio rack
At the heart of Reason Essentials is a virtual rack that builds itself as you create your song. Fill your rack with as many devices as you need to get your sound. Reason Essentials’ legendary instruments and effects cover every need from acoustic and organic to electronic and synthetic.
As you build your rack, everything is automatically connected and routed for you. If you want to dive deeper, turn the rack around and you’ll find yourself in cable heaven! Craft the sound you are after by routing audio and control voltage freely between devices in the rack. Your imagination is the only limitation to what you can build.
Capture your musical ideas in Reason Essentials’ powerful sequencer. Record and edit audio, MIDI or automation with powerful recording and editing tools. Always in sync with your flow, forever adapting to you and your working methods, Reason Essentials’ sequencer simply gets you there faster.
Record first and pick your tempo later with Reason Essentials’ renowned time stretch. Non-destructively correct the timing of your audio recording with Slice Edit. Or rework, resample or reshape your recordings into something completely new.
Extending your rack
When you're looking for even more creative options, Rack Extensions come to the rescue. Expand your virtual rack with new, inspiring instruments and effects created by developers around the world—from modern effects to vintage instruments. Rack Extensions are full rack citizens, giving you the same fully integrated experience as when using any of the included synths, effects and utilities.
Reason Essentials’ built-in sound bank comes with everything you need to get started with your music making: synth sounds, sampled instruments, drum kits, loops and effects and more.
