Musikmesse 2012: Propellerhead Rack Extensions for Reason

 

They’re not at Musikmesse so we’ve not had a chat with them (yet), but one of the coolest announcements of the week is that Propellerhead are finally opening up Reason to third parties – in their own special way.

Reason users have long been split into two camps: those who wish there was VST/AU compatibility to open things up a little, and those who praise the stability of the entirely in the box solution. These two somewhat incongruous positions have finally – hopefully, at least – been reconciled with this new announcement.

Rack Extensions are essentially plugins for Reason, but with a very strict integration guidelines. A third party rack device will be usable just like a core device, right down to nesting it in Combinators, routing the signal, automating, and so on.

We’re really excited about this one – how about you?
