Clip Launching is good for live use, jamming, getting creative with different arrangments and that isnt necessereily dependant on the music style. For production you will at a certain point make the transition from the clip based arrangement to a normal linear arrangement. It is not that Clip based arrangements doesnt add something to your final production, much the opposite.QVprod wrote: ↑24 May 2018Again depends on the user. I've used Ableton. Love it for launching loops or stems for a band to play along to in a live performance situation. In production, the workflow of recording to clips makes zero sense to me. But for someone else that workflow seems 'more organic' as you mentioned. In my case it had zero influence, where as in yours it gave you a preference for it. If Reason needs a clip based workflow to prevent a user from moving to Ableton and abandoning Reason, then perhaps the grass really was greener on the other side. . As previously mentioned though, I'm not speaking against the creation of said REs, but I'd personally prefer the whole shebang than a subset of the functionality which would include independent time signatures and bpm.antic604 wrote: ↑24 May 2018
Sure, but the individual's workflow could be influenced and shaped by the tools they use, no? If one is doing music in linear DAW - Reason, Cubase, Studio One, etc. - then obviously their workflow will not be clip launcher-based. The idea here is to give them such an option to try out, without having to go to other DAW and at the risk they'll find out that the grass is indeed greener on the other side
Honestly i am wondering for years why Reason doesnt have a Clip Launcher given the history of pattern based stuff in Reason. It is out of my mind why they dont go that one step further.
And from a market and marketing perspective i think they are missing out alot of potential. Are there any good "live jamming with Reason" videos on youtube? A Launchpad plugged into reason even with the reotuch codec is miles away from what a launchpad can do in Ableton and people own these.
