Our story

Reasonistas was founded in 2012 by Noel G., a veteran Reason user and active contributor to the Reason community. We develop Rack Extension devices, Refills, Combinator backdrops and helpful tools for Reason Studios.

Currently we offer SideChain ReAction Enveloper (SCRE) and CoreReLation Phase Analyzer (CORE). SCRE is the first and only Rack Extension fully dedicated and optimized for multiband ducking and unparalleled envelope shaping in Reason, while CORE is the first and only Rack Extension designed and optimized for detailed phase and stereo imaging analyzation. You can own both for 27% with the SCRE & CORE Bundle.

The “Reason” in Reasonistas is obvious, but what is meant by “-istas”? The –ista suffix comes from Latin and before that Ancient Greek -ιστής ‎(-istḗs). The derived English variant of this suffix is –ist, used in words like “pianist,” “futurist,” “annalist,” and so on. These types of words describe a person in relation to an activity, principle, or doctrine (e.g. Reason users are Reasonistas). This suffix is also often used in Spanish. For example: periódico ‎(“newspaper”) periodista ‎(“journalist”).
