OWC "REASON RIG"
Make music like the pros!

REASON software by Propellerhead is an exciting way to create compelling music with your computer. It is a "virtual rack" full of synths, samplers/sample players, loop players, mixer, sequencer and effects! You can create as many of each as your computer will allow. This software comes with a huge amount of sounds and loops so you can get started creating great tracks right away. Of course, you will need a midi keyboard to play all of the virtual synths. We recommend the M-Audio Oxygen 8 or the Edirol PCR-30. Both keyboards include a built in USB midi interface. These keyboards even have "programmable" knobs that you can assign to any parameter on the virtual synths for total creative control of your sounds. Grab a drum loop, add a bass part, create a synth and Jam! REASON is a very intuitive package. Please click on the link below to hear a quick demo of what this software can do. The demo track is something created in 20 minutes as the soundtrack for a Quicktime product demo. REASON also supports Rewire. Rewire is a way for two music applications to sync to each other. A popular application that one would use with REASON is LIVE by Abelton. With REASON slaved to LIVE via Rewire, any track created in REASON will show up as a track in LIVE's mixer. At that point, you could use LIVE to record a vocal or instrumental track as part of the overall piece. Maybe this "studio in a box" is the inspiration you need to create that next hit song! The tools are all there....just add your imagination.
