Reason 6.5 Features: A Fleeting Glimpse
Expanding Reason’s production capability to the status of a fully fledged DAW has been a cry made from many a studio rooftop for quite sometime. Thankfully, those cries have not gone unnoticed because Propellerheads have listened and made the decision to stop the development of ‘Record‘ – their dedicated audio track recording software – and build its entire feature set into Reason6.5. Which means, this unique music-making software now delivers Unlimited Audio Multitracking!
Reason6.5 Views: Visually, Reason6.5 fills the entire screen with 3 main views: The Rack – The Sequencer & the Main Mixer view. Each of the 3 views are detachable which means you can drag Reason’s views into a second monitor. On a single monitor Reason6.5 can be switched between views using the F5-F6-F7 shortcut keys.
New Effects: Reason6.5 is rammed with an indepth choice of creative rack effect and instruments. Each device brings with it a unique sonic quality as the Reason6.5 music production workflow continues to offer more. There are several new and highly impressive effects in Reason6.5:
- Alligator three band pattern based gate/filter effect.
- Pulveriser multimode filter, distortion and compressor module.
- The Echo advanced stereo echo unit.
- Line6 modeled Guitar & Bass Amps.
- Neptune Pitch corrector.
Add the new effects devices of Reason6.5 to the devices introduced into the earlier versions of Reason, such as: Kong Drum Designer – Arp8 – Dr.Octo Rex and you have a truly impressive collection of high quality music production tools.
The New Mixer: At the very heart of Reason6.5 is a new SSL 9000K modeled Main Mixer. As the creative centrepiece of Reason’s production workflow it truly delivers all the sonic punch and analog characteristics you would expect from such a highly regarded mixing console. Visually the new Main Mixer is resplendent and deserving of its profiled status in Reason6.5.
