Starting off making music can be a daunting task for our bank accounts especially when we don’t know what the best software is for us yet.
Propellerhead Reason 10 is one of the most expensive software’s available with only one package deal available. Their early popularity dwindled after the release of Reason 6 due to their hard stance on piracy which has successfully seen their software being unable to be cracked ever since.
Here is a tutorial on how you can get to grips with Reason’s latest software for completely free. This method is not illegal or in a grey area but a good way to ensure you know what you are getting before you purchase what is arguably the best software available for music production.
For you to proceed you will need to have an email that is not registered to any Propellerhead account. In addition you will need to have a spare 10 minutes every month to keep this software on your account.
Step 1. Creating a Propellerhead Account.
Clicking HERE will take you to the sign up page for a Propellerhead account. You don’t need anything but your email and a password to register for an account, and you can even use your Facebook to login for speed purposes.
Note; use a real email address as you will have to confirm the address through an email.
Step 2. Registering for a trial
Registering for a trial of Propellerhead Reason 10 will give you 30 day access to the software. This is not limited access, you will be able to do everything you can do on the purchased version. Make music, save music, import, export, install effects, buy effects etc.
Trial page HERE
This is the best way to test the waters with the software and see how powerful it can be for music producers.
Step 3. Downloading the software
Once you have registered for the trial, your account will be licensed to run the software for 30 days onwards.
If you have validated your account with the email sent to the email address you used to register, your download should begin soon.
Follow the onscreen instructions to install the software.
Step 4. Logging In
When you have installed the software, you can open up Propellerhead Reason 10.
You will be presented with a login splash screen in which you use the login details you used to register for your Propellerhead account.
Now you are free to make as music as you wish and explore the world of Reason.
Step 5. Download plugins and effects
Effects and modules for Propellerhead Reason 10 are features I came across very late on my production journey. These effects often replicate real world studio equipment so they are great to use to boost the quality of your music.
Clicking here will take you to the Propellerhead Reason online store. Here you will have access to unlimited amounts of effects to use.
These effects aren’t all free, but the majority come with a 30 day trial because you need to know what works for you and your production.
Simply click TRY on your chosen effects, click checkout and Reason will download these files automatically.
Here are some effects I recommend for you to download and use in your music production;
This method is quick and free. Who doesn’t love that?
Please remember this is a trial method so after 30 days you will need to create a new account under a new email address, but you won’t have to re-install the software. Simply just log in with the new details.
If you do feel you enjoy the software and wish for Propellerhead Reason 10 to be your next DAW. I urge you to invest in your craft and become a true professional.
