Propellerhead Software surprised users today. After the big sale of Reason 10 Upgrade from Limited/Essentials last month, the Swedish company announced today Reason 10 Intro. It replaces the Essentials version and is an introduction to the award-winning Reason 10 music production software. Not only the name changes but also includes a good amount of new features and ready-to-use instruments/effects/sounds.
The new version now features 10 instruments (Europa Shapeshifting Synthesizer, Thor Polyphonic Synthesizer, Subtractor, NN-XT Advanced sampler…) as well as 11 effects (RV7000 mkII advanced reverb, Scream 4 Distortion…). Reason Intro includes also full support for Rack Extension as well as VST support. The last feature turns the former Essentials version into a full-featured and affordable DAW (99$ / 79€).
