Propellerhead Intros Free Reason Compact App For iOS


Propellerhead has introduced Reason Compact – a free mobile-friendly synth + sequencing app.

Reason Compact lets create sounds with Reason’s flagship Europa synthesizer and then create melodies and patterns using a smart keyboard, note grid and Chords tools. You can use it as a standalone app, connect it to other apps or even export your work and work with it in Reason 10.
