Reason 6 Essentials - everything you need from Reason, but for less

Reason 6 is hugely popular, especially now that audio recording is integrated into the main program. If you could only own one tool for music production, Reason would be the one to get. However, if you don’t want to spend the money on the full version of Reason 6, Propellerheads has released a very capable, but less expensive version called Reason Essentials.

Reason Essentials packs in all the recording, editing, effects, instruments and mixing tools you need to sound great. With its generous sound bank and familiar creative flow, it’s the software that lets you focus on the music and finish that song. Reason Essentials, just like its bigger brother Reason, puts making music in focus. From concept to completion, it comes with all the essential tools for turning good ideas into great songs.


Reason Essentials comes with a great selection of instruments and effects in a virtual rack that builds itself or can be tweaked to your heart’s content – drum machine, loop player, sampler, synths, reverb, delay, distortion and more. Reason Essentials' masterfully modeled mixing console gives you flexible routing, a built-in two-band EQ on every channel, advanced effects handling, full automation, and that radio-ready master bus compressor gives you a big studio sound.

For guitar players, the built-in virtual guitar and bass PODs from Line 6 bring a wide range of top quality guitar amps, cabinets, and effects. The intuitive audio and MIDI sequencer makes recording and arranging your music a breeze. 

Recording music is all about seizing the moment. Capturing a perfect performance — or even nailing that idea before it goes away — requires tools that are ready when you are. Reason Essentials is always ready.
