Re: Reason 9.5 for sale

I tried Ableton for a couple of days. Still don't know why it has such a large user base.

Re: Wanted: Reason version 6

Ah yes. A used copy of Reason 6 is how I got my foot in the Reason door. All versions prior to audio recording were almost useless to me but 6 was the one for me. I believe 6 is the last version to support XP and I only just gave up my XP usage about a year ago. I got my copy of 6 on ebay. It took a...

Re: Wrong colors in reason pallete or i`m daltonian? (R9)

And here I thought someone finally posted the same issue I've had since ..forever. I have no idea why but my colors are completely wrong. Not just a shading issue. When the color name is blue, for example, I apply the color and it's actually red. 100% wrong colors vs names, none of them are correct....

Re: POLL: How much would you pay for Mobile Reason? (and what would you like to see/or not see implemented?

Surprised by the total lack of interest here. I use Caustic 3 and it's pretty rad. I'm not one of those people who's always on my phone and kinda hate touch screens, but shit man, I'd take mobile Reason (as long as it was actually functional, like Caustic 3 is) for 20 bucks. Not sure I like phones/t...

Yep. I'm dumb. My preferences setting was changed. But in my defense that's kind of a dumb setting to have 'on by default' anyway.

Issue in Reason 10 with audio recording/monitoring (why is this forum still called 9.5?)

Every time I go to record in Reason 10, the source monitor enables itself when I hit record. I don't want to hear my instruments live through the headphones when I'm recording so I have always disabled it. Only way to effectively do this now, so far, is by using the pre-count in order to buy enough ...

Re: Reason's Comp Editor

I was excited when I first learned about comp edit. But honestly, I'm hoping they completely change/revamp the audio editing workflow in future iterations. Audio comp editing is what I like the least about Reason. The good news is Audition 3.0 is free now. I just hate switching back and forth. Audio...

Re: [speculation] What’s Next?

I believe it's high time they get serious about audio editing. Just like they combined Record into Reason to finally create the almost perfect audio recording/production environment (IMO), they need to stop keeping Recycle a separate thing. Update Recycle. Give it standard audio editing capabilities...

Have you ever tried https://www.celestionplus.com ? Celestion is also claiming there's no difference between IR and the real thing. I have A/B tested IRs and I can't hear the difference. No I haven't. I just checked and they don't have an IR for the current production Celestion speakers I'm using i...

Re: The “problem” with impulse response for amp cabinet sounds

For me the best sound I can get is with my old Koch tube amp + Palmer Speaker simulator using the unfiltered output and then use IRs. But direct guitar recording is way more flexible so I mostly use that. The difference is mostly a difference in feel I think. Indeed - I still record direct guitars ...

Re: The “problem” with impulse response for amp cabinet sounds

Your repeated use of the word perfect is quite curious. You obviously have very high opinions of the emulations and the people who set up the gear to make them for you.

Re: The “problem” with impulse response for amp cabinet sounds

That „perfect“ obviously doesn‘t refer to the decision of the mic placement but about the transfer function. If putting a sound through the cab/mic/room combo yields the same result as putting it through the impulse response of that setup then it‘s a perfect reproduction - which it is. Your repeate...

Re: The “problem” with impulse response for amp cabinet sounds

As a recording engineer, have you ever moved a mic around on a speaker cab? If so, then you've noticed the HUGE difference in sound which TINY adjustments make. The mic position is baked into the sound of the emulation. But was it positioned "perfectly" when it was baked in? Maybe you could define ...

If something is not observable at a lower volume and it becomes observable at higher volume does it not "sound different"?

We could argue about whether or not "perfection" has been achieved but I will completely agree about the static combination of source material.
