Propellerhead today released Reason 8.3, the latest update to their virtual studio for Mac & Windows. It’s the third update since version 8 came out.
Here’s what’s new in version 8.3:
- New reverb effect – RV7000 is now MkII and gains a convolution mode, essentially allowing you to sample room characteristics.
- Impulse Responses – A ReFill with a collection of Impulse Response content available on the web, along with some unique samples (like a Eurorack spring reverb, the Propellerhead kitchen, and the inside of a piano) and a bunch of patches making use of all this content.
- Browser update – The browser is now available in the detached rack window, too. Propellerhead says this was the number one feature request since Reason 8 came out.
- Time savers like “static value” now being accessible in the arrange view in the sequencer; Zoom to Selection (press Z to zoom in or out); and buttons for selecting what instrument you play in the rack are the icing on the update cake.
To update, open Reason 8.2 and hit the “Download” button. You can grab the free RV7000 MkII ReFill here.
