Propellerhead's Reason is a staple editing tool for many musicians but Propellerhead is hoping to convert musicians onto the mobile platform with the release of the Reason Compact app. Designed for iOS, this music editing app offers users a powerful tool for audio manipulation and promises music creation on the move. The Reason Compact app won't have all the features of the full desktop app, but it does offer the software's flagship Europa synth.
The app isn't totally designed to completely replace the desktop Reason app and is instead a "taste" of Reason. Instead of crafting sounds directly on the mobile app, users are encouraged to work on rough projects through Reason Compact and later send them to Reason 10, or Europa VST, for final polishing.
