I think the sounds are amongst the better ones I've heard in a softsynth. Maybe they dont sound like an Omega8 when listened to alone, but in a mix it sounds really good...

After a year or so of waiting, i think the hype is well worth it. Sure there are other programs to compete with ie: Orion, and Fruityloops 3.0. But comparing them doesnt really make sense to me. Theyr not really in different levels but in different tastes. Read my fruityloops 3 and Orion review. But as for Reason, im very impressed. The idea of course is a virtual rack studio, which makes so much sense, its perfect for the home techno creator, everything all in one, and if you need more just add a new machine. A powerful computer is a must, it really shows how powerful it really is, theres something to be said for listening or working on a song in reason while surfing the net, and no clicks or pops are happening. The sound is killer, it seriously surprised me, very good for all styles of electronic music. And with rewire , rebirth and cubase are just a click away. Everything being automatically patched in helps beginners and pros alike. Sure it could use some more things, vst instruments, and maybe a audio in, but remeber rebirth 1.0, with its one 808 and minimal abilities, so im sure the props have much in store for future versions of Reason. I myslef have Reason, Orion and Fruityloops 3, and theyr 3 different animals with different feels, but if i had to choose one id choose reason, Theres so little i would add or fix. I cant talk about it enough you have to just try it, and really try it, music takes work, but reason helps with the ease of use, ill give it a 10 when vst instruments are added.

Reason is fine for beginners. But after you listen to some hardware synths you'll hear the difference. Hardware synths sound way way better than it, as do other softsynths like metasynth or Reaktor.

Still, good for people who are learning.

External control isnt possible yet. owever you can hook it up with Cubase or Nuendo and use their midi.

I purchased Reason a week ago and found it incredibly easy to set up and run with, once I got it onto a powerfull enough computer. The recommended P2-233 that I had just didn't have enough horsepower to push through a whole lot so I moved it to a P3-650 and viola!

What I haven't been able to figure out yet is whether it's possible to use the sequencer in Reason (which is almost as simple and quite a bit more powerful than my QY70) to control external MIDI devices, like my MS2000R.

I need to find a few solid hours to mess with the software and find out how good the loop player, analog sequencer and sampler really are. Based upon Propellerheads background I assume they're quite good but I'll post a follow-up when I have details...
