An exceptional way to get next-gen musicians familiar with one of the most popular music-making programs on the market.
Reason 7 Education is a software recording studio for musicians. In the classroom, Reason has many distinct advantages over other music software programs, allowing students to focus on music creation and production, not system maintenance and software incompatibilities. Students can freely experiment and find solutions to audio problems while maintaining creative flow during music production, invariably spending more time on their projects and assignments.
Reason's studio simulation metaphor allows students to configure (and reconfigure) a complete sound studio, selecting and wiring audio processors and generators while the large-format console model provides a rare chance for students to prep for work in large, professional studios. The flexible environment lets students experiment with signal path and internal routing, customize their sound experiences and "break the rules" - all connections allowed!
Provides a complete set of effects including mastering tools, so students can practice difficult setups like multiband and parallel compression and mid/side processing.
Connect the Ignition Key to the USB port on a server or a computer on your network and the clever multi-license system allows students to use Reason on any computer on the network until the license limit is reached.
About Reason 7
Reason 7 is an integrated software music recording and production studio with audio recording, million-dollar mixing, and a massive collection of instruments, sounds and effects included for writing, recording, remixing and producing great-sounding tracks.
At the heart of Reason 7 is a virtual rack that builds itself as you create your song. Create instruments and effects and route them any way you want. Add, delete, replace and tweak. Your rack is what you want it to be. Need more gear? No problem. Choose a synth, a drum machine, a loop player or any device from the Create menu and it will instantly appear in your rack, logically patched into the signal chain. And because Reason 7 is designed to go easy on your computer, you can keep adding to your song until you're more than happy.
A single keystroke will turn Reason's rack around, and you'll find yourself in patch cord heaven. All audio connections are made automatically. When a new device is created, it's automatically patched in for you. If you ever want to go deep, repatch by dragging the patch cord plug to the desired connector—or open up and tweak one of the included presets.
All the sliders, knobs, buttons and functions are right in front of you, ready to be tweaked, turned and twisted in absolute real time. And everything—filter adjustments, pitch bending, gain riding or panning—can be recorded and automated in the Reason sequencer.
Integrate your hardware MIDI gear with Reason's rack thanks to the new External Instrument device. Control your external synths and beat machines from Reason's sequencer, or sync your outboard sequencer with MIDI clock.
When you're looking for even more creative options, Rack Extensions come to the rescue. Expand your virtual rack with new, inspiring instruments and effects created by Propellerhead and other developers—from modern effects to vintage instruments. Rack Extensions are full Reason rack citizens, giving you the same fully integrated experience as when using any of the included synths, effects and utilities.
Below the rack you'll find the powerful sequencer. Keeping with Reason’s famous ease of use, it still comes with all the editing features you need. Capture MIDI performances and automation, record and overdub audio, or draw in your notes with the mouse. Any mistakes can easily be corrected, adjusted or quickly spliced together from multiple takes. If your playing is too tight—use Reason's ReGroove Mixer to add more human feel. Always in sync with your flow, forever adapting to you and your working methods, Reason's sequencer simply gets you there faster.
With the renowned time stretch, you can record first and pick your tempo later. And thanks to audio transpose you can even record first and change the key later. Change the tempo of your song on the fly, and the audio follows right along, in real time. Non-destructively change the pitch, correct the timing of your audio recording, or use the automatic audio-slicing to turn your performance into something completely new. Resample your audio recording as REX files and continue working with your sounds and loops in the Reason rack.
When finalizing your song, Reason's mixer gives your tracks that big studio sound right out of your computer. The Mixer is faithfully modeled after the famous SSL® 9000k* analog mixing desk, with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, advanced effects handling, full automation, groups and parallel channels, and its famous master-bus compression. The spectrum analyzer window with visual EQ control—new in version 7 of Reason—makes it easy to fine-tune the sound of your tracks from anywhere in the program.
Finding that right sound is an important part of the musical process. With gigabytes of synths, samples, drum kits, loops and effects, Reason's built-in sound bank is packed with everything you'll need from the start. Want more? Expand your palette with a world of ReFill libraries—sound libraries custom-made for Reason 7.
Reason makes collaboration easy. Your song files are self-contained, keeping all audio recordings and sounds in a single file for easy sharing with your friends. If you need to move your music to a different program, Reason lets you quickly bounce all your channels to individual audio files with a couple clicks.
Reason’s legendary flow lets you stay focused on the music and explore your options as you go along. With a completely integrated environment like Reason, you will face fewer dialog boxes, more inspiration and more music.
