Adding Auto-Tune to your Reason rack opens up entirely new uses for this industry-standard effect. The most essential tool for a modern vocal sound has now been significantly extended
Since its introduction, Auto-Tune has become an indispensable part of modern vocal production. Auto-Tune Reason delivers the essential Auto-Tune features, plus Reason-exclusive features for more creative workflows, all with a simple and intuitive interface.
- The signature Auto-Tune Effect
- Transparent natural-sounding pitch correction
- CV Note and Gate outputs for controlling Reason instruments with a vocal track
- A collection of Combinator vocal chain patches
- MIDI control of target notes
Retune Speed and Humanize controls let you dial in the sound you’re looking for, from subtle pitch correction to the most extreme Auto-Tune Effect. And low-latency processing lets you perform through Auto-Tune Reason in real-time without any distracting delay.
But as with all things Reason, you can take things much further by combining Auto-Tune Reason with other Reason devices. To get you started, Auto-Tune Reason includes a collection of Combinator vocal chain patches for both subtle, mix-ready processing, and inspiring creative effects for every genre of music.
My take on this? I think we'll shortly hear from either Antares or Reason Studios (RS) about how easy it was to port the VST to RE format. Like it was easy for RS to port Europa RE to the VST format 3 years ago. I'm a firm believer that RS' long-term goal is to build an alternative, Apple Store-like platform for plugins, where they supply devs with easy to use tools allowing fast and painless developmend and conversion between VST/AU/AAX and RE, which gives certain benefits to users:
- single account login for all REs
- automatic installation & updates
- compatibility with Reason and other DAWs (via Reaston Rack VST/AU/AX)
- centralised store
- file hosting
- promotion / marketing
- virus & piracy protection
- cross-platform compatibility (RE can be run as VST, AU and AAX but also in the Web and hardware)
- (allegedly) easy to use dev / conversion tools
This would also increase sales of Reason itself, unless they'd make the Reason Rack Plugin free, which would probably be an even smarter move.
