Reason Essentials 1.5 is a streamlined version of Propellerhead's primary software product, Reason 6.5. Essentials is aptly named in that it retains the most important components of Reason, while not including a lot of the more esoteric and strictly professional components of the flagship DAW.

With Rack Extensions the Reason rack opens up to third party developers. This is not another plugin format “ Rack Extensions are full Reason rack citizens, giving you the same great experience as any other Reason device. Load them in Combinators, route cables on the back, automate all parameters, and experiment with the safety of undo. Browse all Rack Extensions in the Propellerhead Shop and even download fully functional trial versions to load into your rack. Every Rack Extension you have purchased can be downloaded as many times as you need “ for both Mac and Windows “ and the latest version is never more than a click away.

Comments about Propellerhead Reason Essentials 1.5:
Essentials is no intro/lite product for me. I've owned the full version of Reason and stop using it, Maschine sound better to me at the time. To my point I finally broke down and just went with Essentials to check it out, and to my surprise I was impressed. Now if your just producing in Reason then I recommend Essentials you can record vocals but you need to track out and mix in your daw. The best thing you can do is go through each sound that Reason essentials comes with and trust me you will be impressed. The only thing that lacks is the stock drum sounds for redrum but you should already have your own custom drum sounds. Plus with the new update to 1.5 you can buy rack extensions, get the tools you need for your rack. I know this helps budget producer, you don't have to settle for FL Studio, honestly the work flow in Reason will benefit you more. Plus you get the SSL Mixer sound quality! What more can I say. Don't compare to the full version Essentials only make since if your newbie or you use more then one program for beat-making.
