The Basics

iLok is a copy protection method used by many of our brands.

It has 3 types of activations, iLok USB, iLok Machine, and iLok Cloud.

Different brands/products will offer different iLok methods. iLok USB is always an option, but the availability of iLok Cloud and iLok Machine methods is at the discretion of the software developer.

iLok Account

For all iLok protected products, you will need an iLok account. You can create one for free here:!registration

iLok License Manager

To manage your iLok licenses, there is a dedicated app called iLok License Manager. This app is used to register, activate, and move your licenses between locations.

You can download the latest installers from the iLok website:!home

iLok USB Key

iLok USB

This activation is stored on an iLok 2 or 3 USB key.

It is the best option for portability, if you frequently move between multiple machines, and offline use.

iLok Machine ID

Machine ID

This activation is stored locally on your computer.

While this is a convenient way to work offline, and does not require the additional cost of an iLok USB, there is the risk of a license being lost in the case of a drive failure.

This option also requires extra care when you upgrade to a new computer, the license(s) must be deactivated on your old machine first to ensure you do not lose them.

iLok Cloud

iLok Cloud

This activation is based online, and requires a "cloud session" using the iLok License Manager.

It requires an active internet connection for the entire time you use the plugin(s).

Sound Like You

Reason has everything you need to sound like you.

It's a virtual Rack where you wire up instruments and effects to create the sounds you're looking for.

You can use it as a plugin or a full-blown DAW with recording, sequencing, mixing, and everything else you'd expect.

Fast, fluid, and fun, Reason is all about making music - however you make music.

Your sound, faster. With an upgraded sequencer, brand new browser, five new devices, and more sounds - Reason 13 is all about your workflow.

New In Reason 13

Browse your way.

All patches, samples, and loops are now in one place - the new Browser.

Find the perfect sound by filtering on anything from name and kind to categories and tags.

Just type what you're looking for and the browser will give you suggestions or use the Category and Tag buttons to filter your way to a new sound.

Tag, You're It!

All content in Reason is now categorized and tagged to let you explore sounds in a whole new way.

That includes all soundbanks, all Reason Studios devices, and all Sound Packs.

Over 20 years of sound design for you to use and abuse.

Anything that isn't already tagged can of course be tagged by you.

Sequencer Upgrade

The sequencer has been split into two.

With the new Edit Area it’s easy to get down and dirty with the details in your music without losing your way in the arrangement.

Together with several new workflow improvements, improved zooming, layout changes, and easy access to editing features - the upgraded sequencer makes it effortless to make your music sound like you.

It's Got The Look

Reason 13 doesn't just sound good, it also looks good.

Together with the sequencer the entire Reason interface has been updated.

It might not necessarily improve your music, but it will make it easier to find your way around.

New Sounds For Your Sound

Fall in love with your favorite devices again.

In Reason 13 we’ve updated our sound bank library with 1000+ new patches, samples, REX loops, demo songs and song starter templates.

Sometimes your own sound starts with one of our sounds.

Polytone Dual-Layer Synthesizer

Polytone is a synth-lovers' synth.

Inspired by our favorite vintage hardware, we designed it to recreate the warm analog sounds you know and love.

But it wouldn't be us if we didn’t tweak the formula for more possibilities.

Even better, Polytone has two layers that can be stacked or morphed between for super fat or evolving sounds.

Ripley Space Delay

Ripley combines delay and reverb with unique flavors of filtering, noise, and distortion.

Coupled with extensive modulation you can create the delay you want - anything from clean taps or warm analog sounds to crazy lo-fi chirps or washed out ambiences.

Everything that adds character and depth to your music.

Reason Tools

Three new devices that simplify common tasks for a smoother workflow, so that you spend less time on the boring stuff and more time making music.

  • Sidechain Tool is all about ducking signals.
  • Gain Tool puts you in control over signal levels.
  • Stereo Tool is a stereo widener specifically designed to make a simple signal sound bigger and wider.
