Propellerhead Software has announced the release of Reason 8.2. The latest update makes it easier for new and existing Reason 8 customers to download, install, and stay up to date with the latest version.
Reason now detects and downloads the most recent eligible software updates so a user will always have the latest version. A typical Reason update (minus the soundbanks) will now be around 100 MB—a tenth of its old size.
The Reason 8.2 update addresses many requested features including Revert browsing—a new workflow in Reason's browser that will be familiar to users of previous versions—more colors in the sequencer, expanded Remote support for Redrum Drum Machine, streamlined sound bank handling and more.
Reason 8.2 also gives a user access to the Propellerhead music-making service, which is continually updated with new features and functionality based on customer feedback. This free music making service connects the free Figure and Take mobile apps with the Reason music production software, so a user can create, share, collaborate and remix with other musicians around the globe.
Reason 8 is available as a free downloadable update for Reason 8 owners from Propellerhead's website or from an authorized dealer.
