Propellerhead Software has introduced Reason 8.3. This update introduces the new RV7000 mkII, described as a powerful convolution reverb that sounds amazing, inspires new ideas, and sparks creativity. A spokesperson said, "You can explore space with an expertly sampled library of rooms that add inspiring depth and dimension to your music."

Here's the full story direct from Propellerhead:

With RV7000 mkII, Reason's cornerstone reverb gets a sophisticated new convolution engine. Select from a broad selection of reverbs to suit the sound of any genre or project. Hear your tracks play back in spaces ranging from crawlspaces and bathrooms, to grand auditoriums, stairwells and more. Load any of the supplied impulse responses or create your own otherworldly reverb effects by sampling or loading your own impulse responses.

The Reason 8.3 update also includes many other highly requested features. Access the browser window from both the sequencer and the rack window. Hit the Z key and quickly zoom to and from your selection. Set MIDI focus in the rack without going to the sequencer. Plus, you get numerous other enhancements and bug fixes to make music creation even smoother.

Reason 8.3 also gives you access to the newly introduced Propellerhead music-making service, which is continually updated with new features and functionality based on customer feedback. This free music making service connects the free Figure and Take mobile apps with the award-winning Reason music production software, so you can create, share, collaborate and remix with other musicians around the globe.
