Propellerhead Software has announced Reason 9.1, a free update to Reason 9 that brings Ableton's Link technology to the Reason Rack. The first third party DAW to support Ableton Link, Reason 9.1 can play in time with Link-enabled apps on desktop and mobile.
"We're thrilled to provide Reason 9.1 as a free update after the great response to Reason 9," said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Propellerhead Product Marketing Manager. "Adding Ableton Link in addition to the three new Player devices, 1000 new sounds, Pitch Edit, numerous workflow enhancements and the addition of the Pulsar dual-channel LFO makes Reason 9 even more fun for making music — from initial jam to polished song."
Ableton Link was introduced in Nov 2015 as a way to let apps on different devices to play in time, needing only a WiFi connection to start on the beat and stay in tempo. The technology was developed for Ableton Live and was adopted in mobile apps such as Gadget by Korg, Figure by Allihoopa, iMaschine by Native Instruments and many more.
