Music Tech

Creative Flow

Make music without technical distractions to break your flow.

Reason is designed to act and feel like a musical instrument. What you see is really what you get. No hidden screens, sub-menus or dialogs to flip through. Drag and drop instruments and sounds, tweak anything you see on screen and save it all in a single document.

Twist knobs, push buttons, move faders – Reason's interface looks and feels like an instrument and seamlessly integrates with your favorite hardware controller. Record your knob and fader movements to create rich, automated mixes. As easy as that.

Flip the rack over to access the backside with all the audio and CV cables and connectors. Here you can manually route anything to anything, just like in a real studio. Or simply leave it to Reason to automatically hook it all together, unlike a real studio.

Mixing & Recording

Capture your ideas with a minimum of mouse clicks. Immediate and intuitive, Reason's rock solid audio and MIDI sequencer gives you total control.


Capture your vocal or instrument performances with ease in Reason’s audio sequencer. Overdub, edit, rearrange, comp and tweak fast and easy with Reason’s easy to use editing tools.


Record and program MIDI and automation, tweak and tune until your inner perfectionist is satisfied. Reason’s fast and lean creative flow won’t get in your way.

Mix like the stars

Finish your tracks in Reason’s million-dollar mixing console, faithfully modeled after an analog studio icon. It’s the final touch that can turn a good song into a great track.


Change the tempo of your song and Reason will automatically time stretch all your audio with stunning quality. Effortlessly fix and improve vocal takes with the built-in Pitch Edit.
