Propellerhead Reason 6.5 DAW at a Glance:
Rack Extensions: the flexibility of "plug-ins," without the hassle
Propellerhead Reason 6.5 opens Reason's rack up to third-party developers. Yes, we're talking Rack Extensions. Rack Extensions give you the flexibility that your friends who use other DAWs have long enjoyed. What you don't get with Rack Extensions is the hassle. The quirky behaviors that are entirely different from plug-in to plug-in (and completely contrary to how your DAW works!). You don't get instability, nasty crashes, version compatibility issues, authorization aggravations - we could go on. What you do get is great-sounding, cutting-edge instruments and effects that do what they're supposed to. Because Propellerhead controls the technology, issuing its Rack Extensions SDK to all RE developers, you get a seamless "plug-in" experience. Simply visit Propellerhead's online Rack Extension store and select what you want. Your Rack Extensions download and install automatically. You don't have to mess with registration and authorizations - your Reason ignition key covers everything. And when you're in the heat of fast 'n' furious creativity, your Rack Extensions respond just like Reason does (e.g., command/control-z is undo), and all settings are saved with your session. This is how it's supposed to be.
Record audio to unlimited tracks and mix on a superb SSL-modeled console
The major feature of Propellerhead Reason 6 was the integration of audio recording, adding Record's mixer to Reason's arsenal. Modeled after the SSL 9000k - the legendary "SuperAnalogue" large-format studio console - Reason's mixer lets you tap into the fidelity and analog punch of the modeled EQ and compression present on every channel, as well as the mastering mojo of the world-famous SSL master bus compressor. Reason 6.5 even lets you record to unlimited hard disk tracks. All these features make Reason 6.5 a formidable powerhouse in the DAW world.
Enhance your compositions with great-sounding effects
Reason has always been known for its amazing effects collection, and recent additions such as The Echo, Alligator, Pulverizer, and Neptune give you more flexibility than ever to create the sounds you hear in your head. The Echo is a multi-purpose delay tool. Create everything from slight delays to complete stutters, and use the filters and envelopes to further tweak your sound and morph it into something completely unique. The Alligator is a three-channel pattern-based gate. When a signal enters it is split into three signals, each of which are independently processed. Next the signals are sent through a filter section and FX section you can tweak to your heart's content. Reason 6.5 also includes Pulverizer, a crunchy compressor with dirty distortion, a multimode filter, and flexible modulation. Neptune is a full-featured pitch correction and voice synth device. We've only just scratched the surface here - these are but a few of the many incredible-sounding effects you'll find in the Propellerhead Reason 6.5 rack.
Workflow and technology enhancements
Reason 6.5 makes recording and creating music as simple as possible. Ever have an issue where you record all the back-up music only to have the singer need another key? Reason's audio transpose function lets you change the key of your piece without re-recording. The legendary time stretch feature lets you change the tempo of you song, even after all the parts are recorded. The Factory Sound Bank has thousands of new loops and patches for your Reason instruments, and hundreds of new presets for the built-in effects. A huge recording meter allows you to play your guitar across the room and still see what is going on. And being a 64-bit program, Propellerhead Reason 6.5 is more powerful and robust than ever.

Many Reasons to purchase this!
by R.J. Cooper from ColoradoReason 6 is an incredible package! As a long-time user of Propellerhead software (my first taste was Reason 3), I can honestly state that Reason 6 is a fantastic game-changer. Not only are the wonderf... read more [+]ul soft-synths and instrument racks ever-present, but the mixing interface has achieved a complete overhaul. By incorporating Record's capabilities into 6, Propellerhead has (in my view) solidified Reason not only as a powerful virtual workstation, but also as a full-fledged DAW!

Propellerhead Reason has been the center of my music creation and sound design since version 1.0. I've purchased every upgrade since. Reason 6.5 expands your musical freedom even more. Now with Rack Extensions opening the door for third-party contributors, there's a gazillion more ways to shape, mold, reconstruct, destroy, improve and control your sound and music - all in real-time. Every electronic musical artist should be informed on the power and capabilities Reason has to offer.
