I assume so but it's probably easier to check than to make a thread about it, wait for people to troll your thread, get bored of doing that then eventually get a definitive answer.
(spoiler - the answer is yes)

Any pointers on how to go about it? I'm not getting much luck.

you save a file with q-record enabled then set it as your template file.
not really sure why this would be a special case.

Thanks. Got there in the end. Didn't realise I had to change the suffix to .rsndemo

I'd have spit coffee out if I was drinking any... I follow a lot of forums, but I've just come to the conclusion all Reasoners are f**cking savage. If someone thinks they aren't, all I can say is give it time. :lol: At least you helped the guy. :clap:

You don’t need to create a “template”, which CAN be handy for other things. Rather, what you want sounds like a “Default Song”. This is the song that is opened automatically when you create “NEW SONG”. Templates have to be opened manually each time.
To make a “startup song” all you need to do is open a new song, make the changes you want (I also reduce click level and load up a very simple mastering combinator and set meters to VU + Peak etc.). Then save it with a useful name (My current is “Startup_12) then go into your PREFS and on the General tab click the folder icon under “Default Song:” and select the song file you just created.

That’s it - from now on, all those settings (including Q RECORD if you selected it) will be applied to every new ‘empty’ song file when created (and when Reason first starts). You can also include instruments etc. if they are things you always need - SUPER handy, and something every DAW should have IMO.

Additional tip: put this file in a memorable place so you can update it easily as needed. I put it at the top of my ReFill folder, using an underscore ("_") to force it to the top of the list. I don't often need it, but hate to waste time looking for things in the heat of the moment.
