This CSi Starter is packed with interactive training on the latest features and functionalities of Reason. This type of interactive learning tool is the perfect environment for creative minds. It allows the user to experiment within the interface of Reason while learning how to get up and running on the application as quickly as possible. One of the main players in computer based music creation, Reason is quickly growing in popularity. Users are looking for additional material that the manual does not provide. This CD-ROM is comprised of clear and concise movie tutorials that take users from set up, through recording, editing, mixing to creating a CD/MP3 and backing up their files. It can either act as a standalone product for those learners that steer away from printed guides, or a great companion product to "Reason 2.5 Ignite" (1592001475). Either way, it is a must-have for the newcomer to Reason and/or to computer-based music in general.
