Stockholm, Sweden (May 19, 2016)—Propellerhead Software will release the latest edition of its music production software, Reason 9, on June 21, adding a host of new devices, sounds, and creative tools.
Reason 9 introduces three Player devices that can turn any MIDI input into music. Note Echo creates rhythmic, pitched MIDI delays for melodies, drum rolls, and more. Scales & Chords extrapolates harmonies and chords from melodies for users, transposing notes to a selected scale and automatically generating chords for a song. Dual Arpeggio transforms chords into rhythms..
Reason’s new Pitch Edit mode lets users fix vocals, taking aim at out-of-tune notes, adding vibrato, changing timing, creating new melodies from a recording, changing dynamics and more. Audio to MIDI lets users convert vocals into MIDI notes for additional sound manipulation possibilities. Reason 9 will also come with 1,000 new sounds via its new sound bank, and the Reason rack is also enhanced with workflow improvements and darker theme options.
“Reason 9 is the most exciting version yet, with major new features that are sure to help everyone make more and better music,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Propellerhead Product Marketing Manager. “For Reason 9, we focused on the journey from inspiration to perfection. The new devices and sounds can spark a million new ideas, while the new tools and highly requested features help you polish those ideas to perfection. Reason 9 makes it fun and easy for everyone to capture their inspiration and develop musical ideas.”
