Propellerhead releases free Reason 9.5 update with VST Support

Reason Studios

Propellerhead Software has released Reason 9.5, the newest update to the Reason music production software. Reason 9.5 introduces VST support, and is a free update for Reason 9 owners.

VST plugins can now be used with Reason 9.5. Drag and drop from the browser, use CV and audio connections with your plugins, play in new ways with Players, put VST plugins in Combinators with Reason's own devices or Rack Extensions. Reason's patchable rack lets you route audio any way you want, and the new plugin delay compensation in Reason 9.5 keeps you in phase at all times.

"We've seen some amazing VST instruments and effects that are available in the market, and we simply wanted our Reason users to have access to them without compromising Reason's unique workflow, " said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager. "Reason finds all the VSTs on your computer and displays them next to your other Reason devices. You can simply drag and drop a VST plugin into the Reason rack and get started right away—or you can go as deep as you want and access the CV and audio connections for a truly modular music-making experience."

Reason 9.5 supports any VST 2.4-compliant instrument or effect plugin, which means just about every VST out there will work in Reason. In addition to the 375+ Rack Extension instruments and effects from over 90 different manufacturers already available, the Propellerhead Shop now features a custom curated list of VST plugins from VST plugin brands including Waves, Output, KV331 and iZotope.
