Propellerhead has released new versions of their music making platforms Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials 1.5. New in these versions is the introduction of Rack Extensions, a new technology that opens up the rack to third parties, “enabling developers to create their own instruments and effects for Reason and allowing users to expand their collection of instruments and effects with the Reason devices they want,” explains Propellerhead.
Propellerhead has also opened the doors to the Propellerhead Shop, a central retail location for all Rack Extensions. All Rack Extensions are full Reason rack “citizens,” operating like all other rack components with features such as automation, unlimited undo and cables on the back as well as integration with Reason’s patch browser. In the Propellerhead Shop, users can audition fully functional 30-day trial versions of all available Rack Extensions, downloaded and installed into the rack with a single click.
Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials 1.5 are available as free upgrades for all owners of Reason 6 or Reason Essentials version 1, downloadable from the Propellerhead web site today.
Price: Free upgrade for Reason 6 or Reason Essentials V.1 owners; $129 and $449 (Reason Essentials and Reason, respectively)
