Propellerhead’s Reason 9.5 will include VST plugin support

It’s been their No.1 most requested feature, one that we’ve waited over 15 years to arrive and finally Propellerhead has announced that Reason 9.5 will include VST plugin support…

Whilst Propellerhead’s addition of its Rack Extensions technology to Reason was a big draw, the fact that previously purchased plugins were not compatible made crossing over to a new DAW less than tempting. Now though, the sky’s the limit.


“Today’s music makers need access to all the great software instruments and effects out there – but without compromising their creative process,” said Mattias Häggström Gerdt, Reason Product Manager. “Opening your favorite VST plugins in Reason taps into Reason’s legendary workflow, from simply playing your favorite instruments to using the audio and CV connections for a truly modular music-making experience.”

You’ll be able to drag and drop from the browser, use CV and audio connections with your plugins, play in new ways with Players, put them in Combinators with Reason’s own devices or Rack Extensions.
