Reading threads about Reason 12 feels like an endlessly ongoing, everrepeating drama, up to a point where it at least seems people are using Reason or Reason Studios in specific to vent something unrelated. I read a lot of venting already. Re-venting continously about the same things goes beyond purpose and potentially simply drags down. Actually that´s how a tendency to depression is being initialised. Among the busiest threads there are always complaining ones, whished there was as much contribution to exploring Reason, techniques, ideas.
Regarding someone´s comment about the new Combinator sliders and buttons, I aswell was a little underwhelmed how few additional ones got implemented.
Still I love playing with the new Combinator, creating designs, new devices, rack versions of VST, combining plugins, etc. Would it be even more fun with a greater variety, especially in sizes for every style and a greater number of simultaneously possible elements. Sure it would. Am I enjoying the possibilities the new Combinator is offering? Fuck yeah.
Is the UI bugfree? No it isn´t. Am I happy about being able to zoom into the rack and work relaxingly from further away or to focus on one device? Yes, I am.
Sure there are some things that would make the experience a lot better, like only zooming into the rack, not necessarily the UI with it, as a greater zoomlevel not only uses more space but also let´s UI elements dissapear next to the visible desktop. Then the question is once again, can I very much enjoy it even with its temporary quirks? Yes I can.
At least as such appearing business poilitics, economic decisions and so on are topics of relevance aswell. Yet, I´m here for the music and what can be done with Reason.
And what can be done with Reason, especially with Reason 12 is already quite a lot for now.
