Features:

  • Craft beats, melodies and basslines
  • Create music with three instruments:
    • Europa – Reason’s flagship synthesizer
    • Rytmik – a simple yet powerful drum machine that comes with 16 inspirational free drum kits
    • Monotone Bass Synthesizer – a synthesizer made specially for deep basslines
  • Play melodies and basslines with the smart keyboard
  • MIDI note grid
  • Chords tool
  • Mix your tracks and play with the built-in effects and controls
  • Add depth and texture to your tracks using distortion, delay, and reverb effects
  • Sequence and build patterns in the drum grid
  • Sketch out song ideas on the go
  • Take your tracks further with Reason Lite, the desktop studio you can download for free with Reason Compact
  • Export tracks as Reason 10 song files, as wav files or patches

The app is available as free download, but additional synths and sounds are available via In-App purchases.

  1. Are Europa and Groovebox both made by the same company or using the same library or something? The synths are literally identical…interfaces are clones.

    1. Thor is $14.99

      description states: Connect Reason Compact with other music apps using Audiobus or Inter-app Audio

    1. They say “Banger” and “Cool” also LOL, but despite the cheesy video, I’ll probably download and use it.

  3. look forward to reason compact becoming the new reason . reason sounds great but for me the computer version is too cluttery but i like the ios environment. and still sounds good.

    1. This is new trend among environment conscious producers – hardware pooling. When one person sleeps, the others can walk around the city making random noises or even produce something!
      Sharing one pair of headphones among few musicians, limits environmental footprint of DAW (Direct Audio Waste). This is very effective way of keeping surrounding free of potentially harmful sonical emissions.
      If we want to save this planet, we need to start being serious about our music making habits.
      Think about it next time when you want to throw away some sample that you used only twice!

      Disclamer: This post is not meant to be serious, so hold your Rottweilers, lads!

      1. I similarly have bought a time-share on a Moog One where this summer I’ll get to use it on the first Tuesday of August from 3-4am, in Portland. It was a good deal really.

  4. What about a cool app to edit audio files into Rex files instead this crappy app that just looks exactly like Groovebox?
