ha, not at all. I’m not always great at conveying the tone I feel correctly, in posts—definitely not angered.mimidancer wrote: ↑03 Oct 2021I am so sorry. I feel like I have angered you. That was not my intention. I truly don't understand the whole workflow thing. I find live clunky. It is utterly boring visually. The one thing it is good at is stringing together clips live, like a DJ. Reason's workflow is like going into the studio it is emulating. I guess I don't see the value in folding my tracks together. and using an arrow key to change lanes modulation lanes. As I just turn the knobs on my controller when I press record. Nothing difficult about that. I obviously love reason. And I am just okay with Live. It is good at that one thing. But I am not considering people that can't actually play. Not a knock. Many great producers are terrible musicians. Just saying that if I flub a key I don't press quantize or look in the piano roll. I just play it again. Again not a knock. Many great producers cannot play. But this may be my disconnect. Again I am not trying to anger you. I like the reason sequencer as is. I don't want the clunk I find in live. When I do want live I load it.
Reason has a great workflow in a very shallow sense (I don’t mean that as a dig). I can do the basic stuff I need to quickly, and many of the things I don’t do often are intuitive enough to figure out when I need them.
Live seems a little clunkier on the surface, but I quickly learned I could just ignore most of the quirkier features/settings I won’t use often (though I like knowing they’re there if I need them). things like auto punch, markers, linked track editing and track notes make my workflow in Live so much nicer. putting even just those features into Reason would make it a much more pleasurable experience. I can’t imagine how awesome Reason would be just with a few fairly minor improvements. it’s really just about getting the software out of the way of the user so it’s easy to get stuff done quickly.
