Propellerhead Software today announced Reason 8 – a major new version of its virtual studio and digital audio workstation (DAW).
Reason 8 introduces a completely redesigned user interface and streamlined workflow that Propellerhead says ‘makes it easy to create amazing music, faster than ever.’
“For Reason 8, we’ve taken everything people love about Reason and introduced a streamlined new user interface,” says Propellerhead’s Leo Nathorst-Böös, “that makes it easier for new users to get started, and more fun for seasoned users to work faster.”
Here what’s new in Propellerhead Reason 8:
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.
Workflow improvements make for a more streamlined music creation experience, allowing musicians and producers to move quickly from initial idea to a completed song.
