Reason 6's working environment is based around three main elements: the mixer, the rack and the sequencer. These can appear together as resizable horizontal 'panes' in a single window, which can itself be resized to best fit your monitor. Hitting your computer keyboard's F5, F6 and F7 keys causes the mixer, rack or sequencer, respectively, to fill the entire window, and the same key returns to the multi-pane view. The mixer and rack can also be detached to become independent windows, which will suit users with multiple monitors.
Accompanying these three main elements are a handful of 'navigators': smaller overviews of the contents of each pane, complete with draggable handles. These take the place of conventional scroll bars and allow you to zone in on individual mixer channels (and the individual sections of a channel), rack devices, tracks and sequence regions. A transport panel with playback and record buttons, time and tempo displays and the like attaches itself to the bottom of any main window you have open. And there are three optional floating windows: a multi-purpose Tool window, a 'piano keys' display (for allowing some MIDI input when you've only got a computer keyboard or mouse available), and a recording level meter. All three can be toggled open and closed with more F-key shortcuts. 153554b96e
