This is a fair enough, I was just wondered who the community thinks has the best sequencer on the market currently - i.e. which DAW's featureset would Reason Studios be advised to look at as a starting point when revisiting development on their own sequencer!
I'm not talking about slavishly copying something else without giving it a Reason twist first! However, at the same time, I don't really feel like sequencers are the best part of a DAW suitable for paradigm-shifting innovation.
Am I right in thinking most people see Live and Cubase as having the best MIDI sequencers going currently?
What is better in the ableton and cubase sequencer?
I have used ableton a lot and I think the Reason sequencer is superior.
My experience has been that I start most of my songs in Reason, but find if there's any weakness it's in finishing them. I've been doing this "music thing" for a long time and would LOVE to find an all in one solution. I'm tech savvy to be sure, but when you can get in the flow with one application it's better IMO.
I would think Reason is closer to being an all in one if just because it's the only DAW I'm inspired to create in. The final process of mixing/mastering is more technical, which is why the "less inspiring" DAWs can excel in those tasks even as they fail to inspire in others.
I would advocate towards the "all in one" solution because these days it's more often the SAME person starting and finishing a song. If you have the time and $$ to spend on separate apps or in paying folks to take care of each stage for you, that's great.
So basically, IF there was a decent all in one package it would allow the creator more time to create and less time to learn additional apps, export/import (repeat if you make changes), etc, and more time to learn the fine art of crafting music.
Sadly I don't see others thinking this way, at least those in a position to do something about it. Or maybe I'm in the minority wanting to be able to still be able to tweak a synth during the final mix while still having the mixing tools that are on par with the creation tools in one app.
