they just released 11 in what, September? they’re not going to release a version 12 for at least another year, I’d suspect, and they don’t announce it until a month before release, usually.

I imagine they’ll have to have a Suite version going forward. otherwise if you went from Reason 10 to Reason 12, you wouldn’t be able to get all the v11 Suite devices without having to buy v11 Suite before upgrading to 12 (unless you were to buy them separately, of course).

but that does raise another question...assuming there is a v12 Suite, will the upgrade price from 11 Suite be less than the upgrade price from 11 Standard? I should hope so, but their recent questionable pricing structures don’t instill a lot of confidence.

I’m sure that’s why they will offer a Suite version for v12.

You are wrong here.
1. Usually, the announcement will take place a month and a half before the release.
2. Reason 9 was released in June 2016, and reason 10 was released on October 25, 2017. Apparently, the difference between the versions is 16 months.
Of course, the difference between reason 10 and 11 is already 23 months. But if you look at the number of minor updates, then in version 10 there were 4, and in version 11 it was already 3 ... Relatively recently.
Version 11.4 is expected to be in August-September.
And if you calculate the difference with Reason 10.4 (May 23, 2019) before the announcement of Reason 11 (August 26, 2019) - three months.
So you can completely allow Reason 12 version of November-December. Perhaps also the first quarter of 2021.

of course I *could* be wrong. I didn’t say anything definitive—I rarely deal in absolutes.

Reason 12 before this time next year, though? I wouldn’t bet on it. it’s easy to manipulate “expected” timeframes by cherry picking numbers.

either way, I’d love to be wrong. the sooner, the better, as long as it’s a good update.

as for the month and a half lead time, vs a month, yes it’s changed over the years, but the last 3 releases have all been consistently announced about 30 days in advance.

I would be surprised if there is no v12 in timme for Christmas. The amount of sales they do in May and during Christmas is likely staggering compared to the rest of the year. So the investors would not let that slip...

I understand there is a global pandemic and many product development projects are going to be slow but I suspect Reason Studios next update will be probably huge. I don't think we need any new instruments and effects from Reason Studios. Other than upgrading the underlying tech I think they need to start getting closer to the feature sets found in Cubase, Moto, Logic. Just a thought.

It would be nice if they would give us a presentation of their future road map. This could be things coming 2 to 4 years down the road. Where I work vendors are always giving us presentations of their future upgrades and app version releases. Many times this gets up to not look elsewhere to replace their applications knowing feature we deem useful are right around the corner.

Not an original idea at all, but the more I use vst's in the rack, I crave to have the option to have the vst displayed as part of the rack, and not just the pop out window.
It breaks Reasons unique workflow having to flip between the rack and a bunch of vst windows. Lots of vst already look similar size/proportions already (eg Soundtoys) and could bee made to fit in with a little bit of stretching or by leaving a little bit of black space.
With whatever is planned with the HD update might facilitate this.
This I think would further justify letting vst's into the RRP too.

Multitrack MIDI support for VSTs and VST3 is what would get me to upgrade...

Also multiple hardware MIDI inputs please!

It would make logical sense to make going from 11 Suite to 12 Suite cheaper than 11 standard to 12 Suite but you never know with Reason Studios / Propellerhead lol!

I - - Overall GUI Update:
1. Improve Browser (Sample preview player, better and flexible browser management, copy, rename, multi-select)
2. Scalable HQ Rack
3. Improved Mixer GUI & Mixer Themes
4. Text Input for Values (Be able to write down the values for the devices)
5. Sequencer GUI update (including the piano roll, bottom play/stop/tempo etc...bar, and also those midi boxes)
6. Update old instruments including the NNXT-rex...c'mon...
7. Be able to see Rack/Mixer/Sequencer side-by-side besides one on top of the other. We can see shit better! (No need to double-click on the bar to open sections, one click on the bar is enough to switch views)

II - - Sequencer
1. Upgrade and Improve Midi Editing tools (don't make us add a note/notes in a mode and remove a note/notes in another mode, c'mon, we need workflow, speed. FL Studio left click=add/ right-click= remove note, get inspired!)
2. Improve Audio sample manipulation and Time Warp/Sync, Tempo Detection
3. Drag/Drop Audio Samples directly from browser to the device in the sequencer
4. Make it possible to edit several midi boxes at the same time.
5. More Audio and Midi Tools (don't make me list them, they're all over the place and other DAWs)
6. Track Folders and better channel organization
7. Display a tracker that shows whether the sequencer is in "Follow Song" Mode or not

III - Rack
1. Improve Rack Cabling:
A. Make it faster as you scroll for the love of GOD! It's hell when you have a huge stack of instruments. I'm using Windows. Maybe MAC users don't face this issue.
B. Make a way to better locate where the device we want to cable to, is located (coloring system from device A to device B, perhaps by selecting both of them, then flipping the rack)

IV - Key commands
1. Never enough of them, give us more.
2. Play keys and beats on laptop keyboard. Plays what's selected in the sequencer channel, or what's selected in the rack, instantly
3. Give us better key commands for editing tools. Something faster than the pencil, eraser tools etc...
4. Custom Key commands for Windows Please? Also Trackpad zoom and Side-Scroll on Windows? Please?

V - VST3 and more audio format compatibility
1. Export to mp3/to soundcloud like Studio One
2. Accept FLAC format as audio samples and other audio formats
3. VST3

VI - Live
1. Play live in Reason
2. Make a Reason Hardware Controller that is able to fluidly and efficiently control everything inside Reason, without even looking at Reason.

VII - Video Editing
I really hope Reason 11.3 will be the GUI update, and R12 will be the sequencer update.

A GUI update is not enough for me to put my money on the next release.

With the sequencer falling well behind the major DAWs, I wouldn't be shocked if they slightly updated the current sequencer and simultaneously introduced a brand new stand-alone sequencer. This would be possible with the RRP, and would follow the path of Record being available alongside the original Reason mixer.

Exactly what is it that you want updated with the sequencer? For me the reason sequencer is superior to ableton and FLstudio.

On topic: I would like to have midi out from VSTs

uhm.......what ?

FL Studio's piano roll is very rich in functionalities that I wish Reason has:

1. Piano Roll can give you scales and chords (yes the scales and chords are showed in the piano roll instead of an exterior rack extension like in Reason)
2. You can arpegiate, strum, flam, flip and randomize notes
3. You can slide and portamento a specific note (both ableton and fl studio have that option, Reason and Studio One can't) - This has become today a fundamental technique in Trap and UK drill
4. You can color notes - helpful when setting different parameters for different notes
5. You can control more than just velocity - pan, filter (cutoff and resonance) and pitch
6. You can apply LFO, inside the piano roll, for the above-mentioned controls
7. You can see ghost notes and a shortcut to switch between the instruments within the piano roll
8. You have plenty of shortcuts and key commands to help you speed up your workflow when it comes to editing
9. You have more creative tools for the automation, you can have pulse, wave and plenty other options for your automation curves
10. You can activate/deactivate typing keyboard (for editing tools shortcuts) to piano keyboard (keyboard playing piano)
