Here’s what’s new:
- Kong Drum Designer (Reason): Load, sculpt, build and tweak your sounds with your choice of drum synthesis, sampling, REX loops, physical modeling and custom-made effect modules for percussion on Kong’s 16 pads.
- Dr Octo Rex Loop Player (Reason): The upgraded Dr. Octo Rex loop player loads eight REX loops into one player and lets you switch between them on the fly.
- Neptune Pitch Adjuster and Voice Synth Device (Record): Super flexible processor to correct and shift pitches, create backing harmonies, formant shift or “take your vocals into outer space.”
- Block based pattern sequencing mode makes song creation fast and flexible (Both):Go from pattern-based arrangements to linear–to patterns again. Take your music beyond the eight bar loop.
- Live sampling (Reason): Re-explore the lost art (and fun) of sampling. Every sample player becomes a sampler; record with a single click — further tweak with the built-in editor.
- Multi-core optimization, on-screen keyboard and expanded Factory Sound Bank
