I'm going for the UC1.

Will report back as to the true reality of how well it works in Reason as soon as I can.

I've also been in contact with SSL in regards to trying and make this work in Reason ( at least as far as track names propagating to the UC-1 are concerned ). They seem interested..... in asking for video showing what my issue was.

Fingers crossed.

If anyone is interested in the videos I have on this... they aren't great, but they illustrate what does not work with Reason and the UC-1/360 mixer.

Yeah. I mix on live though so that would be no issue. Shame that Reason is not always supported...

But some can and do show track names, like Maschine with the MaschineR software, so it is possible, just they don't take the time to get it sorted 🤷‍♂️
Good to know its possible then..... if they sorted this out I might more seriously consider it.
Yep, the frontier AlphaTrack also displays track names and works beautifully with the mixer.

This looks interesting also. It doesn't have the LED feedback of Console 1 or the UC-1 but the price and layout is good.

I understand it's half the price - but I think the limitations make it not much better than operating with a mouse in the box. I've tried and owned "nearly-got-it-right" controllers over the years and always pack them up again, put them onto eBay, and move back into the box.

One of the big selling points of UC1, compared to devices like those from Rock Solid Audio, is the deep integration it has with your DAW (especially those that are on SSL's compatible list). If you watch various Youtube videos on UC1, you can immediately see the workflow improvements, it's the closest thing to actually owning a 9000K in your own studio. It's the first controller I've seen where I believe that you can operate your DAW without constantly returning back to your screen and mouse.
