Propellerhead Software has released Reason 9.5, an update that introduces VST support. It is a free update for Reason 9 owners.
“We’ve seen some amazing VST instruments and effects that are available in the market, and we simply wanted our Reason users to have access to them without compromising Reason’s unique workflow,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager. “Reason finds all the VSTs on your computer and displays them next to your other Reason devices. You can simply drag and drop a VST plugin into the Reason rack and get started right away—or you can go as deep you want and access the CV and audio connections for a truly modular music-making experience.”
Reason 9.5 supports any VST 2.4-compliant instrument or effect plugin. In addition to the 375+ Rack Extension instruments and effects from over 90 different manufacturers already available, the Propellerhead Shop now features VSTs from Waves, Output, KV331 and iZotope.
