- Studio-in-a-box Software Reason Gets a Booming Upgrade.

Modern day beat makers such as Printz Board, musical director of the Black Eyed Peas, and Adam "Adrock" Horovitz of the Beastie Boys want to be able to make music wherever inspiration strikes them. That means having software on their computer that provides a studio-in-a-box, with everything they need to create and record and finish a new song. Propellerhead Software, an innovative Swedish company, has created such a product. It's called Reason.

Reason software offers a collection of instruments and other music production gear that previously cost thousands of dollars and filled up an entire studio, but now runs on a basic laptop. Most importantly, its pristine sound quality means artists such as Board and Horovitz can keep the creative juices flowing whether they're backstage, on a plane or tour bus, or in a hotel room.

When they get an idea for a song, they just call up one of Reason's drum machines or samplers to create the beat, and one or more synthesizers to play the bass line and melody. The software comes with sounds that fit nearly every musical style, from dance and urban to rock and film soundtrack.

Although you might expect the gear used by the stars to be prohibitively expensive, Reason is an affordable piece of software that comes with everything needed to create full blown productions. It has become one of the most popular music-making applications available. Reason is intuitively designed, allowing musicians at any skill level - beginner to pro - to create club and radio ready tracks, right out of the box.
