So Propellerheads finally did the thing that’s right and have non-Reason users experience the joy of using a native Reason synth. The flagship Europa powerhouse synthesizer is now available to purchase as a VST.
Existing Reason users get Europa as a plugin for free. For non-Reason users there’s a special offer until the end of the month where you can purchase the plugin for $99.

Europa Synth on your mobile device and webbrowser
As if a VST version of a Reason synth isn’t enough Propellerheads went ahead and made the entire thing available to play in your…browser?. Visiting https://www.propellerheads.se/europa?launchEuropa
will open up the Europa synth with all bells and whistles, thanks to some cutting-edge browser technology from Google.
I really hope this marks the beginning of an era where we’ll be able to trial music software (DAWs, plugins, effects) in our browsers before pulling the trigger. Also mentioned is that a mobile app is in the works so iPad musicians might want to wait for this wavetable synth to become available as a standalone app as well.
