Digital Subscriptions > MusicTech > Aug-18 > MASTERING THE NEW FEATURES IN REASON 10.1


Before we begin a new series looking at Reason in-depth, it’s time to take a look at the all-new features in the latest 10.1 update. Andy Jones explores…


It feels like only yesterday that we were waxing lyrical about the wonders of Reason 10 with its all-new Europa and Grain synths, Rack Extensions and gigabytes of sonic content. Indeed it only seems like the day before yesterday that we were banging on about Reason 9.5 and its VST3 compatibility. In truth, these updates were six and twelve months ago respectively, but that’s still quite a release update rate so no surprise that about now we get another, albeit not quite as dramatic, point update in the form of 10.1. Never let it be said that Propellerhead rests on its laurels…


Reason 10.1 has a couple of very neat inclusions, the first of which is an update to the Rack Extension format which the Props say offers ‘improved sample loading with sample zones and pattern automation support’. As if to prove this you can, or at least could, download a free Drum Sequencer Player. We say ‘could’ as this was, at the time of writing, a limited offer to entice you to buy Reason or upgrade. Hopefully, as you read this, Drum Sequencer will still be free, or at least a cheap buy, because it’s a very neat and speedy way to create beats in Reason as we’ll see in our workshop.

Elsewhere, we speak to former Stereophonics drummer Javier Weyler, whose company Breaking Waves facilitate the sonic needs of filmmakers in innovative, creative ways. We also talk to mix engineer Giles Barrett about his boat-based studio and head inside Nottingham's newly-opened Mount Street Studios. Along with our usual range of in-depth reviews we see our tutorial section expand once more as we welcome a brand new Reason series. We hope you enjoy the issue!
