PC Plus reviews Propellerhead Reason 3 and rate it as an excellent 87%. “Still the king of the softsynths, this is a package to be reckoned with.” They note the new Combinator, which allows instruments to be combined into, well, a combination. They also mention the new mastering tools and the improved hardware controller support. They have some issues with the sequencer (who doesn’t?) and the sound quality, as well at the unique “rack” interface, but they don’t consider them to be showstoppers. Reliability is still very good.
Overall they do like this program: “For Reasonâ€™s core home studio market, itâ€™s a fantastic product exploding with creative potential and capable of results that can more than hold their own against much pricier musical toys at almost any level. Itâ€™s also a lot of fun. For the price, you really canâ€™t go wrong.”
