Gimme the Reason!

(with apologies to Luther Vandross for “borrowing” his song name for my title 🙂

OK so today is the release of Propellerhead Software’s Reason 5 and Record 1.5 updates. I use this software at church (I play keys). It’s such a versatile and well written piece of music production software. It has nifty (and totally extravagant) features. For instance you can turn the virtual rack around and move the virtual cables from socket to socket – literally unplug and plug in graphically. They didn’t NEED to write that in such a graphically rich way but the fact they did makes it appear so much more like an “audio device” than a software application. I guess that’s the key – engage the imagination of the user and you’ll gain their love.

Anyway it’s released to today – I bet their servers are getting pretty hot with all the download attention. Can’t wait to have a play!
