Reason for the pathologically impatient


Reason in 30 Seconds

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.

See how one of the pros is already embracing the new tools and features of Reason 7 to elevate his production.

If you've been wanting to integrate hardware keyboards and synths with Reason using MIDI, then the External MIDI Instrument in Reason is the answer! In this micro tutorial, we'll show you the IN's and OUT's, literally, of connecting your MIDI hardware, sequencing it, automating CC parameters, and recording it back into Reason.
