Propellerhead Reason Essentials DAW at a Glance:
Rack Extensions: the flexibility of "plug-ins," without the hassle
Propellerhead Reason Essentials 1.5 opens the famous Reason 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 Propellerhead ignition key covers everything. And when you're in the heat of fast 'n' furious creativity, your Rack Extensions respond just like Essentials does (e.g., command/control-z is undo), and all settings are saved with your session. This is how it's supposed to be.
