PropellerHead Reason 6 & Reason Essentials
Propellerhead Software announced Reason 6, a major update. At the same time Propellerhead debuts Reason Essentials, the successor to Record, that comes with recording, editing, effects, instruments, mixing and mastering features in one package.
Now all Reason products have complete audio recording and editing.
New in Reason 6
Combining the features from Record, Reason version 6 adds audio recording and editing, along with Propellerhead's mixing console with modeled EQ and dynamics on every channel, multiple parallel racks, Line 6 amp models, new effect devices plus additional features. New creative effects designed for inserting into instruments and tracks include: Pulveriser, sound crushing effect with crunchy compression, dirty distortion and flexible modulation; The Echo, stereo echo with modern delay and analog tape echo emulation: and Alligator, a three band pattern gate for complex rhythmic texturing. Interface enhancements, high definition audio transpose and true 64-bit compatibility highlight other new feature improvements, according to PH.

Introducing Reason Essentials
Distilled from the core of Reason, Reason Essentials contains a selection of instruments and effects in a virtual rack that builds itself, or can be customized—drum machine, loop player, sampler, synths, reverb, delay, distortion, mastering effects and more. For guitar players, the built-in virtual guitar and bass PODs from Line 6 bring a range of guitar amps, cabinets and effects.
