Some of the things you can do with Discover are:

  • Move musical ideas between mobile apps and Reason—invite Take users to sing on a Figure beat, or finish a Take song with Reason’s full suite of instruments and effects
  • Share music publicly, unlisted to your friends, or to your social network of choice
  • Find inspiration in Discover—Propellerhead-curated, community made music pieces, all ready and available for use in your creations
