Reason 7 Announced Today

Reason 7

Reason 7 is a big leap forward with MIDI Out, allowing you to integrate your hardware gear with Reason. There's also automatic beat slicing, coming from the company that brought us Recycle you know that's going to be a great creative & corrective tool. It might be in the mixing section where the biggest overhaul has occurred, the world class console (modeled on an SSL 9000k) is now controllable from the rack, new track grouping and bussing allows you to get a handle on your mix and easily setup parallel compression. On top of that there is a spectrum analyzer and graphic EQ to let you get surgical on the mix buss and the Audiomatic Transformer to inject more mojo and analogue character into your tracks and groups.

From March 1st if you purchase Reason 6.5 (full version or via an upgrade) then you will automatically be upgraded to Reason 7 when it comes out (Q2 2013). If you need a hand choosing the right upgrade then check out our chart here.
