Guest Post: Kirk Markarian talks about Reason, Synth Bundles, and makes a song.

 This week, we’re doing something a little different: we’re featuring a post from Kirk Markarian that showcases our recently released Rack Extensions for Reason. We’ve been dipping our toes into the Rack Extension world for a few months and last week released the newest installment, the Vereor series, which includes six Noise Eng oscillators with built-in low-pass gates and VCAs. Kirk was a beta tester and was kind enough to put some demos together for us, and then just kept on playing.

The reduced barrier to entry provided by Propellerhead was a huge win for getting back into the box :)
