Effects Color your music and get the sound you want with Reason's rich palette of effect units.


Time and space

Say effect unit and most would think of reverb and delay, so of course Reason is equipped with world-class units for all kinds of echo and reverberation duties.

  • RV7000 MkII
    Very easy and straightforward to use, yet sophisticated with multiple reverb models, including an advanced Impulse Response reverb.

  • The Echo
    Ein Echo-Effekt-Multitalent, das die Perfektion eines Digital-Delays mit dem Charakter von Vintage-Tonband-Echogeräten verbindet.


Sonic destruction

Edge, life, sparkle, noise - call it what you want. Distorting and squashing a sound is a very effective way of adding that special something to your sound.


  • Scream 4 Sound Destruction Unit
    Ein Multimodus-Klangbearbeiter-Effekt, der von der sanften Bandkompression bis hin zum akustischen Vollchaos alles drauf hat.

  • Pulveriser Demolition
    Combining compression, distortion and filter and modulation, the Pulveriser is a beast of a processor that makes just about anything sound… better.


Sound sculpting

Nailing just the sound you’re after in Reason is a fun and rewarding audio exploration endeavor. For fearless adventures in sound design, three devices stand out agains the rest.

  • Synchronous Effects Modulator
    Create quick sidechain effects or draw your own LFO curves to control filter, delay, reverb, distortion and level. Make your sound evolve, change and loop over time.

  • Alligator Triple Filtered Gate
    Applying pattern control to gating, filtering and envelope shaping, the Alligator will happily chew any audio passing through its jaws into a completely new, albeit interesting, sound.

  • Pulsar Dual LFO
    Ein CV-Modulationseffekt mit dessen zwei LFOs sich Parameter anderer Instrumente und Effekte steuern lassen.

  • BV512 Vocoder
    Er kann weit mehr als nur Roboterstimmen. Ein Vocoder ist z.B. ein großartiges Werkzeug, wenn Du einen Sound mit einem anderen modulieren willst.

  • Audiomatic Retro Transformer
    Hiermit kannst Du Deine bevorzugte Sound-Geschmacksrichtung von gestern auf Deine Musik anwenden. VHS, Vinyl, Tonband und vieles mehr - wähle einfach aus.


Singer’s delight

Reason offers two methods for cleaning up a vocal performance. The Pitch Edit function in the sequencer, or for more creative mangling efforts, Neptune.


  • Neptune Pitch Adjustor
    Berichtige sanft die Intonation von Sängern oder gib mit Deinen Stimmen den T-Pain. Neptune ist zudem ein leistungsfähiger Echtzeit-Stimmensynth.


Putting the Twang in Reason

When recording guitar, you want access to tools expertly tailored for your instrument. Reason comes with amp models from renowned modeling experts Softube.

  • Softube Amp
    Er strahlt Haltung aus und bietet diverse Amp- und Box-Modelle. Dieser Amp lässt Dich nie im Stich.

  • Softube Bass Amp
    Saubere solide Tiefen? Nasale Präsenz? Heftig verzerrt? Welchen Sound Du auch willst, der Bass Amp liefert.


The final touch

Polishing your sound to perfection requires the best tools available, and that’s why the MClass professional mastering units can be found in the Reason rack. Use them on individual instruments or run your whole mix through them.


  • MClass Compressor
    Designed to add punch and definition to your Reason tracks, this single-band compressor sounds simply amazing.

  • MClass Equalizer
    A 4-band, professional level mastering EQ with a transparent sound and precise sound sculpting features.

  • MClass Maximizer
    An advanced tool designed to maximize the volume of your Reason tracks, without crushing them or introducing other unwanted artifacts.
