“Women don’t produce music, Because they don’t use Logic or Reason.” – the famous music meme (just a meme), comes from the name of this DAW. Reason has a great mixer and an outstanding browser. It has easy function keys and works fluent with MIDI controllers. Its early versions didn’t provide audio recording functionality and weren’t supporting VST Plug-ins. But the recent versions provide with both Audio Recording and VST Plug-in support. Reason has brand new Synths, three Sampled Instruments and a couple of other devices and boosting the capabilities of that legendary rack considerably.
You can try the Demo version of Reason for a 30 Day trial. You can also buy Reason for USD 400.
