This is how it could/should feel.
All that's missing are well-integrated controllers.
Imagine if there were a bunch of controllers with simple LCD screens that gave you a hardware feel while being powered under the hood by Reason Rack.
Remote is halfway there.
I'm just visualizing an alternative universe where someone puts out a similar video with what looks like hardware devices in the background, but they are all just MIDI controllers, and it's all happening inside Reason.
Of course, it's a little complicated because that level of freedom might require devices to be able to run at different tempos and stuff, ... ... ...
Anyways, ... ... ... this is how the Reason rack has always felt to me.
