Announcing Reason 10

Posted Sept. 22, 2017, 8:58 a.m.

We're extremely happy to announce Reason 10!

Reason 10 is the biggest content upgrade we've ever done, and that's saying something. For this upgrade we wanted to make sure music makers had a fantastic set of instruments and sounds right out of the box. I definitely think we delivered.

Europa is a feature-rich dynamic wavetable synth that picks up where Thor left off. I'm particularly fond of how many different types of sounds it can do well, from those ridiculously big and wide modern sounds to esoteric sound design and creamy analog emulations. Grain on the other hand take a different approach to synthesis. As the first true granular synth in Reason it breathes new life into your samples. I've already re-sampled tons of parts of my songs and twisted them into new sounds! Make sure you try and drop any and all samples you've got into it and see what comes out.

Klang, Pangea and Humana join Radical Piano in Reason 10 to make sure you have a great selection of realistic, acoustic instruments. Since I also dabble in video game soundtracks, these are very dear to my heart. Finally, Drum Supply and Loop Supply refreshes Reason's drum sample collection in a big way. It'll take quite a while to go through just all the kick drums.

Reason 10 is being beta tested now (sign up here!) and will be released October 25th. I can't wait to hear all the fantastic music you'll be making with it.
