Description

Reason 12 from Reason Studios is one of the most powerful and flexible beatmaking and sound design tools for your music. It’s a virtual studio rack packed full of instruments like synthesizers, drum machines, sound-shaping effects, Player MIDI effects and mixing controls all coming together to be combined and routed however you want. Reason 12 is all about leveling up the creative potential at the heart of your music creation. The Mimic Creative Sampler brings together the best audio technologies from Reason Studios’ history of groundbreaking DSP and sample-slicing, including automatic transient slice detection which easily chops up a sample into individual notes or drum beats. Time-stretching samples can be done using Reason’s legendary stretch algorithm, along with granular and tape modes. Reason 12’s devices are available to users of every DAW running as a VST3, AU and AAX plugin. Running Reason as a plugin inside your DAW of choice doesn’t only offer the flexibility to take the Reason Rack wherever you want to take your music making, it can also interact with other plugins to supercharge them in ways never before possible.
