Overview

The Reason debut in 2000 heralded wide-sweeping changes in the world of electronic music. Reason was the very first music-software platform that behaved just like hardware. Since then, Reason has grown considerably. In addition to adding support for many more devices—from Propellerhead, the creators of Reason, as well as from respected third-party companies such as Korg, Cakewalk, and others—and a truly professional mixing board, Reason has developed into a complete "studio" that looks and sounds like hardware—but is all software. This book covers the most recent version of Reason, Reason 7. This version adds the polish. In Reason 7, everything has been refined, including the way that you get around the software and even the way you edit audio. This book introduces these Reason 7 refinements in addition to covering everything that Reason's always done. If you're new to Reason, this book will get you up to speed. You'll learn all about the classic devices stored within the giant virtual studio that is Reason. If you're an experienced Reason user, you'll be happy, too. This book covers all the new features found in Reason 7. If you're ready to get rolling with Reason, read on!
