It's probably also significant that Reason grew out of Rebirth, which was basically an Acid/dance music/X0X emulator for junglists and ravers. That's its real roots.
I can't think of a single "jungliest" from the late 90s who would have dreamt of using Rebirth but you are right - Reason was just a massively flexible rebirth that was jacked up to 11 or at least it was for me.
Straight jungle, sure. But there have been some fantastic anomalies from the likes of AFX and Venetian Snares etc smashing 303’s.

I’ve had less snobbish remarks about using Reason than people just scratching their heads about why anyone would put up with its limitations.
This was mostly pre audio and pre vst but still, the incomplete half asses implementations continue eh.
No one is gonna look at the sequencer and think it’s a serious pro-platform.
There was a time when it was worth putting up with Reason's limitations because of how CPU-efficient it was. It also had vastly better stock instruments than any other DAW. This was before they saddled it with burdensome DRM and started hiding their best instruments behind a paywall.

For me, the shark-jumping began with Record. That's when they started playing catch-up with other DAWs, packing each update with novelty devices, and making their customers pay extra for new instruments. The fact that it took them a decade to add a new synth to the base package of Reason says a lot about their priorities.

I don’t mind the device paywall in theory but it hasn’t really worked.
In theory you compartmentalise Daw and devices. All devices are developed by the device team and we all buy what we need. Daw gets developed by the Daw team and we get that through upgrades.
But we’re still getting devices for upgrades whether we want them or not, the Daw is limping around the track, and the really expensive units are sold as Re’s.

I’m not gonna batch too much, I only want the samplers, but it is what it is.

batch

Weird. Language cleaner.
But why that word? It’s got loads of non offensive applications.
