I think its fairly obvious from their reactions what this is.
Reason now has an audio input!
Which comes as a standalone module :D

i don't think this new product is anything to do with reason at all.

They invited selected users to a 'meeting' with confidentiality agreements recently.

I think something may be up.

Maybe it gets rid of third world debt or something

Thought this had already been discussed on here already....

Propellerheads have been working on a new DAW system, only speculation but Propellerheads have always been very good at marketing, so id expect it to be a completely new product but with the ability to import reason projects, to get their existing customers to upgrade to a new product.

My thoughts are:
It will be more like a traditional DAW with audio handling.
Propellerheads business model has always been for self contained products to ensure cpu efficiency etc, so im expecting this to not use VST format but its own format to ensure you only buy additional instruments from the props. But expect to see third party development from established developers.

I am intriqued really as they are going into an already competitive market where you have some very established prodiucts like Logic/Cubase/Sonar/Live...so they must believe they have something very special and different

I think the new Presonus DAW sounds far more interesting.
Gig Rig - rMBP 2.3GHZ i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, OSX 10.11.x, Presonus FS, Live 9.x
Home Rig - i7-6700k Hackintosh 32GB DDR4, 2nd Generation Scarlet 18i20, ADA8000, JoeMeek SixQ, Live 9.x

I'd guess that its some kind of DAW-like package with audio recording that leverages Recycle-based technology for fully integrated slicing and dicing.

It'll definitely import old Reason projects, that's for sure.

But I don't really have a clue

I thought we would know something more concrete by today. I'm curious to see what they've come up with.

HOW ABOUT;
They already know their piece of the pie would be relatively small for the DAW market, so they have create a DAW wrapper that pulls say Reason and Live or Logic ect. into one streamline unit under the one hood.
I thought they had no plans on a DAW or audio due to being part of steinberg at one time.
Good teaser trailer!

What a cocktease.

Anyways they're supposed to announce it tomorrow at their Producer's Conference. There was a thread regarding this already and I put in my 2 cents. I wouldn't knock on Propellerheads. They've introduced quite a few great things over the years (REX? REWIRE? The original rack, i.e. Combinator? etc... Anyone?)

I'm not saying they'll blow us away with tomorrow's announcement, but no need to write them off just yet. Maybe I'm biased. I got started on Reason, so even though I barely use it anymore, I still have a special fondness for it.
