Reason owners, your prayers have been answered.
Propellerhead is adding VST plug-in support to Reason, 17 years after the first version of the popular DAW was released.
Though it’s taken a long time for Propellerhead to add VST support, the company has at least given lapsed users an incentive to return: the ability to use the software’s internal control voltage (CV) features with VSTs.
For example, you can now add a software synth such as Serum to your Reason rack, and modulate the sound panning with the DAW’s native LFO effect. It puts it into a similar category as the recent Bitwig Studio 2, which has an extensive modulation engine that can be used with third-party VSTs.
Reason 9.5 isn’t released until May 29, but Reason 9 owners can join the beta test now. The update will be a free download to Reason 9 owners when it lands.
