Re: Reason 10: Not Very Impressed

I too wonder about the longevity of the rack paradigm in the face of young people coming in to the field who've never seen a 19" rack or a distortion pedal or any of the analogue gear that the Rack aims to emulate. I know we've talked about it before. For me, it was a big part of choosing Reason, b...

Re: Reason 10: Not Very Impressed

Hello Geltic, thanks for posting your thoughts here, you make some good points, some of which have been stated and some new.

Re: REs (apparently) ready for 4K GUI?

Personally, I believe that this was the intention behind the marketing talking about Reason 10 being the biggest ever: they aren't talking about 10.0 being the "biggest release ever", they are hinting that the 10.x cycle will contain some of the most massive updates the program has ever seen. I'm a...

Re: Focusrite VSTs?

That Discrete looks cool. I've never heard of them before. But very interesting. How does it integrate with Reason? Easy setup? Do all those plug ins open in Reason? I was on the fence and extremely vocal about the unit, the marketing, etc in my typical true-neutral self who can say how I feel with...

Stuff the Reason PDF into your Kindle. Stuff more Manual PDFs into your kindle. Stuff everything music-related into your kindle!

Re: REs (apparently) ready for 4K GUI?

Many of us had serious problems with Reasons gui on 1024x 768 up to 1080p and I personally spent oh so many years on many forums pitching for a change, sending direct mail, making a killer GUI mockup to make the clunk less clunky. It never happened (typical for bull-headed Props) despite being such ...

Re: Akai Teams with Propellerhead to Create Reason Lite for Akai Controllers

I'm of a different mind and disagree. When I see "free software" with hardware (or piggy backed off of anything) I immediately think its not worth anything. Now I think R10 lite is quite amazing as a freebie for someone who doesn't own Reason as I mentioned in the other thread, however all these mi...

Re: How many gig sample content in R 10?

Aside from the orchestra stuff (which frankly there's immensely better alternatives for orchestration than Reason), I'd prefer few to no samples at all if it could be helped. It's one of the more compelling attributes of Reason I prefer over other instrument-driven DAWS - a slimmer sample-based soun...

Re: Synapse sell out: All RE for 199

I think these insane sales can mean one of two things: 1) people are buying less REs now that vst is viable (ie RE fx and instruments are dead) 2) reason itself wants to increase user base Since pricing is up to RE devs, that makes me think it’s #1. Hopefully REs will get another infusion of life w...

I have to say when yoy have lots of REs and used to work with a 4 track it makes me wonder whether i need the 129 coin upgrade option still. How much is 9.5 going for .....

Re: Synapse sell out: All RE for 199

I tend to turn any built-in effects off once I start working with a device, but I don't mind it for browsing presets. That said, I think the effects for both devices sound quite good, better than most of the built-in effects on other devices I use regularly (e.g. Europa, eXpanse). Not sure what for...

Re: Help me pick a keyboard controller

Here are two MPK 249 files for you to play around with. Please make copies of the originals before you do anything else! -On the MPK, open the reason preset, change all knobs to INC/DEC2 mode and then store as a new preset. -Switches 1-24 now sync with reason bidirectionally -Knobs 1-24 incremental...

I dunno, I just got done running the demo of Legend and Antidote, yes they sound nice but they're full-on built in effects which is the first thing I look for, and subsequently shut off. Go dry and we get back to the side of things where you can properly see what it's made of and determine if it's g...

Re: PC that can run reason 10 without limitations

The software is bottlenecked out of the box with the CPU Limit set at 80%. I just spoke with Mattias the other day on FB pointing out its an antiquated option that the last OS that would have benefited from it was Windows XP. Reason's problem has nothing to do with hardware but programming. The "CP...

I got the MPK249 registered and got a license number for R10 lite but its not working. Akai provides a Authorization Code but when you go to redeem it on Props site, Propellerhead requires a License number and Registration code (and says the code is invalid in either field anyway).

Re: Reason 10 Lite (with Akai controllers)
