Propellerhead recently announced Reason 9.5 will be arriving on May 29th. Reason 9 owners will be given a free update to 9.5 via auto updates in the software. Propellerhead, driven by the goal of making accessible to everyone, creates world-class software designed to inspire and create music makers. Their powerful digital audio workstation (DAW), Reason is continually being improved to help users create, remix, collaborate and share their music. Get all the tools you need to create and edit music and video with this intuitive and fun DAW. Reason 9.5 is a very exciting release because it addresses the #1 feature request the company has received from Reason and non-Reason owners alike.
Propellerhead Brings VST Plugins to Reason
When released on May 29th, Reason 9.5 will provide Virtual Studio Technology (VST) support. As I’ve mentioned before, this is something everyone has been asking for. This means you can use the Reason’s creative flow and add to it any plug-in you want. The music-making possibilities are endless. Reason will find any VST plugin that is installed on your computer. Find them among Reason’s own devices and Rack Extensions. Then simply, drag and drop your effect or instrument to the rack and there it is!
Don’t worry, Rack Extensions aren’t going anywhere. In fact, there will be two plugin formats supported. You will be able to use both the Rack Extensions and your VST plugins. Because Reason’s VST implementation is based on VST 2.4, almost every VST out there will work within your DAW. There is also a new plugin delay compensation to make sure your playback is perfectly timed and phase corrected. Propellerhead has also implemented a limited crash protection system for VSTs for added stability.
“Opening your favorite VST plugins in Reason taps into Reason’s legendary workflow, from simply playing your favorite instruments to using the audio and CV connections for a truly modular music-making experience.”- Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager

*If you own Reason 9, you are eligible for this free upgrade. It will be available via an auto-update on May 29, 2017.
