Propellerhead Software today announces Reason 9, the latest version of their music production software. Reason 9 builds on the award-winning Reason platform by introducing a host of new devices, sounds, and creative tools. Perhaps the most interesting on that list, the new Pitch Edit mode helps fix out-of-tune vocals, add vibrato, change timing, create new melodies from a recording, change the dynamics, and more. This begets Audio to MIDI mode, which lets you convert your vocals to MIDI notes for endless sound manipulation possibilities.
“Reason 9 is the most exciting version yet, with major new features that are sure to help everyone make more and better music,” said Mattias HÃ¤ggstrÃ¶m Gerdt, Propellerhead Product Marketing Manager. “For Reason 9, we focused on the journey from inspiration to perfection. The new devices and sounds can spark a million new ideas, while the new tools and highly requested features help you polish those ideas to perfection. Reason 9 makes it fun and easy for everyone to capture their inspiration and develop musical ideas.”
Propellerhead is offering a grace period for customers who purchased Reason 8 on or after 1 May 2016. Purchasing and registering a qualifying product today makes users eligible for a free upgrade to Reason 9 instantly when it becomes available.
