I always promised myself to try out this feature, but till now i could not see any big benefit compared to copy&paste. Maybe i should give it another try...
As far as I can tell, there are - at least - 3:
- if you reuse the same block several times in Song and then decide you want to change something (e.g. add few more hits in percussion, change a chord, add accent, a fill, etc.), you just do it once in Blocks and it carries over to the Song, to each instance of the block,
- visual benefit, i.e. you can see the block being repeated, cut, sections of it muted and Song layers added on top, which makes it much easier to localise variations that you've introduced to the original block,
- you can name segments of your song, i.e. intro, verse, chorus, break, etc.
I'll definitely start my 1st project in Reason using Blocks, just have to finish that other tune I got going on in Bitwig
