Finding that right sound is an important part of the musical process. With gigabytes of carefully sculpted synths, samples, drum kits, loops and effects for every conceivable style, Reason's built-in sound bank is packed with everything you'll need from the start.
Ready to inspire, all of Reason's sounds have been crafted by our team of expert sound designers, and producers like Death Cab for Cutie's Jason McGerr, Bomb Squad's Hank Shocklee, Black Eyed Peas' Printz Board, DJ Lucky Date, Kill the Noise, and others.
Upgrade from any version of Reason to Reason 9.5 - the legendary music production software studio. From start to finish, its ever-expandable, freely routable rack of instruments, effects and sounds has everything you need to write, record, remix and produce great-sounding tracks.

The new Players are an unexpected treasure. Many people claim these three new Players, in the form of Dual Arpeggio, Note Echo, and Scales & Chords, make it too easy for non-musicians to make cool music. While that may be partially true, seasoned musicians should find some ear tickling combinations that are truly inspiring. Like most tools the pro's will get the greatest benefit. Players are added on top of traditional devices in Reason, not underneath like we're used to with effect modules.
The 1000+ added sounds are very welcome for those who get inspiration from digging though banks. The choices here give the Reason 9 upgrade a contemporary and competitive feel that are worthy of using and studying to find out more about how to build patches. There are plenty of gritty and dirty kicks, basses, and all around great tones in the new bank. The new sounds are separated in Reason to make them easier to find via a whole category called Reason 9 Sounds.
Pulsar Dual LFO is a low frequency oscillator that is now included with Reason instead of being sold separately. That means you are getting two LFO's for the price of NONE. ;) Lose count yet?
Two new color themes, Dark and Blue, are available via making the selection and restarting the program. I switched to dark and never turned back.
I remember the Reason 8 upgrade being less attractive when it was released. This time around Propellerheads have done a great job. I have a list of hopes and dreams for Reason and while it may not be the perfect DAW it remains my favorite and I can easily recommend this upgrade.
