Propellerhead has announced Reason 9.5, which will be released at the end of May with their number one feature request implemented - VST plugins are coming to Reason.
This is a free upgrade for owners of Reason 9.
VST plugins will be right at home in the Reason rack. Drag & Drop from the browser, use CV with your plugins, add Players, put them in Combinators with Reason's own devices or Rack Extensions – all the things you expect when working in Reason.
A device called home
VST plug-ins live in the new Plugin Rack Device that sits in the Reason rack. Here's where the plugin connects to Reason and where you can open the plugin window with a simple click.
Reason's patchable rack lets you route audio any way you want, and the new plugin delay compensation in Reason 9.5 keeps your sound in phase at all times.
If you want to get access early, the beta testing is open to owners of Reason 9 or Reason Essentials 9 here.
