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 Häggström 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.”
