Well seems we are getting a walkthrough on all the devices, delay anyone? :thumbup:

I really enjoyed the Ripley walkthrough video - also looking forward to the follow-up "advanced" video he mentioned.

That Ripley space delay is the gem of this coming release. I like the experimental side as well as the user friendly layout. This is already a classic Reason device! And wow, that banjo lick is a banger. He really made it sound like sampling an old recording. I will so overuse Ripley on my projects. If not for the delay, so for the coloration section or just the space reverb, And, freeze button, hope it is not plastic, because then will get broken. 😁

The Ripley video was great. The comments on YouTube are overwhelmingly positive. I think they are rolling out 13 in a nice way. I enjoy Ryan's videos. That banjo fretless banjo is a beautiful instrument. I give Reason and Rayn an A+ on the last two videos.

Yeah, they've been a great pair of videos. Ryan is definitely a huge asset on the Reason marketing side. Informative and fun every time.

Definitely got me more excited to play with R13. (I was mostly excited about no longer having to deal with the damn tool window!)

agree. I like him as the face for reason. He is obviously a skilled musician and a great producer, but he remains approachable.

Yes, he is great guy, and he is humble because he knows so much that he knows how much more there is to learn in any field. He is such a good educator and communicator and role model for any musician and producer to stay open, curious and a positive mindset.

R13 seem to be about some bread and butter breakfast. Adding some basic stuff, filling some gaps left since long.
If they got some very cool device in the cooking, they will probably add it as paid add on for the Reason+ crowd later. No bells and whistles here. The delay unit is welcomed. I like the simplicity of the synth. Stereo tool seem handy, side-chain tool I welcome and better browser and sequencer update. I never paid €199 for upgrade and no chance in the world I would pay full price for an upgrade like this, at least 50% off. If video sync and live-clip type of function, plus the above, then surely would pay full price.
Agreed! And multi MIDI out.

I bought Omnisphere and promptly returned it for a full refund after spending a solid week with it.
This is refreshing to hear. As someone who already had too many synths as a Reason-only user before Reason VST support, I often hear hype about Omnisphere, but rarely come across any synth that seems to offer anything so different that it justifies buying yet another synth - especially one that costs so much.
My experience is slightly different. I invested heavily in the reason ecosystem. I bought lots of patches and I even tried a few reason extension that had a VST version. The VST versions seem to have more functionality. I wanted film score/movie soundtrack sounds and VST libraries were far superior sound quality wise. I bought the project Sam orchestral reason rack extension and was extremely disappointed because of its limitations. From that point on I started to invest in VSTs and just used the MIDI out device to record the sounds from VSTs before they incorporated VST usage.

Omnisphere is a lot like those Kurzweil workstations that everyone drooled over in the '90s. They both have strong synthesis engines, but nobody buys them for their synthesis engines. They buy them for the sample libraries. RS tried to make something along those lines with Scenic, but it went over like a fart in the library because it was too simplified/Reasonified (gimped).

I never once considered Scenic even a mild attempt at trying to make something comparable to Omnisphere. If you want to compare anything in Reason to Omnisphere, it would be Reason's Combinator library - which is the only thing that covers anything even close IMHO.

Agreed, Omnisphere is better compared to the entirety of Reason rather than any one synth.

Scenic can definitely compete with Omnisphere when it comes to number of UI tabs ;)

If you mean sending MIDI Clock out on multiple ports, that's actually added in Reason 13. :geek:

If RS adds a cheap looper, ppl would complain about a half-arsed-cheap-looper... Better to do it right with potential for improving or leave it alone...

I just saw the video about the new browser and sequencer features.

They are really awesome for me!

I hope, in the future there will be more metadata in the browser for filtering and/or sorting. (but maybe we just didn't see everything in the video, like creation date... )

That's the plan, we want to include more stuff in the future and the browser and database architecture are built to be expandable. :)

That's all looking very nice, there is one thing straight away that I would have liked to have seen in the midi edit mode -

an export function for just that clip or a selection of clips. ;)

Any plans to add the favorite list function for devices back?
That's kind of dealbreaker for me here.
Polytone and Ripley, both look like really fun devices. But I just can't let go of my favorite list workflow.
