Propellerhead Software has announced that its upcoming Reason 9.5 update will offer VST plugin support.
Drag and drop from the browser, use CV and audio connections with your plugins, play in new ways with Players, put them in Combinators with Reason’s own devices or Rack Extensions. Explore a new workflow and discover new creative ways to use VST plugins with Reason 9.5.
“Today’s music makers need access to all the great software instruments and effects out there – but without compromising their creative process,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager. “Opening your favorite VST plugins in Reason taps into Reason’s legendary workflow, from simply playing your favorite instruments to using the audio and CV connections for a truly modular music-making experience.”
Reason 9 was released in June of last year and introduced a host of new devices, sounds and creative tools that inspire music makers to create more and better music – from creative spark to polished production. Since Reason 9’s release, Propellerhead has released two free updates, bringing Ableton’s Link technology to the Reason rack and improving their Rack Extension SDK with highly requested features.
VST in Reason 9.5
- Rack Friendly — VST plugins will be right at home in the Reason rack. Drag & Drop from the browser, use CV with your plugins, add Players, put them in Combinators with Reason’s own devices or Rack Extensions – all the things you expect when working in Reason!
- A device called home — VSTs live in the new Plugin Rack Device that sits in the Reason rack. Here’s where the plugin connects to Reason and where you can open the plugin window with a simple click.
- Tight sound — Reason’s patchable rack lets you route audio any way you want, and the new plugin delay compensation in Reason 9.5 keeps your sound in phase at all times.
Reason 9.5 with VST plugin support will be released on May 29th, 2017. It will be a free update for Reason 9 users.
Owners of Reason 9 or Reason Essentials 9 can beta test Reason 9.5 now.
