Propellerhead Software has today released Reason Compact 2.0, a major update for its music studio app for iOS. Initially, there was confusion about the name of the app because it was just an iOS version of the Europe Synthesizer.
Now the Swedes improved this and added two instruments: a new mono synth and a drum machine that transforms the app in a pocket music studio. Interesting is that you can export the session to Reason 10 with all the instruments. So probably these instruments will come in the near future as an update for Reason 10.
Reason Compact – a music studio right in your pocket. With three amazing-sounding and powerful instruments, you’re ready to have fun and make music on the go. Get started for free, then add new sounds and more controls whenever you’re ready.
In Reason Compact 2.0 we’ve added two new amazing-sounding instruments. Rytmik is a simple yet powerful drum machine that comes with lots of inspirational free drum kits. Monotone is a synth made for deep basslines.
