We were so excited about Reason this month that we made a 30 second video meant to excite others. It won't teach you a thing... it won't go into depth... it won't even have Frank's velvety voice of Reason. But it WILL get you pumped and it will have the best song you'll hear all day featured in it, thanks to Mikkas' track Syndrome made with Reason. If you want to stoke your friends out, share this video with them and then send them HERE to learn more about Reason.
