Stockholm, Sweden (September 22, 2017)—Propellerhead Software has announced Reason 10, reportedly the biggest content update in history for the platform. Highlights include two new synthesizers, three new “live-sounding organic” instrument devices, an acoustic piano, a creative modulation device, and 3GB of drum loops and samples.
Reason 10’s new synthesizers include Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer, a dynamically generated wavetable synth, and Grain Sample Manipulator, a granular synthesis instrument.
In collaboration with Soundiron, Reason 10’s three new sampled instruments include Klang Tuned Percussion with 10 sampled melodic percussion instruments; Pangea World Instruments with 11 world instruments; and Humana Vocal Ensemble, a collection of choirs and solo vocals.
Reason 10, with Propellerhead’s Radical Piano instrument and Synchronous Effect Modulator, was previously only available as Rack Extensions via the Propellerhead Shop. Radical Piano is reportedly “an authentic, flexible, and bendable piano instrument that provides sounds for every situation and every song.”
Finally, Reason 10 comes with over 3 GB of sample content in Reason Drum Supply and Reason Loop Supply. These ReFills include many new drum samples and loops, from vintage drum machines to the futuristic sonic possibilities.
Reason 10 is available as a direct download from Propellerhead’s website or from an authorized dealer on October 25, 2017 for $449; Reason Essentials 10 is $129. A reason 10 Upgrade from any previous version is also $129. Further, Propellerhead is offering a grace period for customers who purchased Reason 9 on or after September 1, 2017.
