    -> The installation is done it without problem?
    Worry-free installation.
    Before he turned on Windows XP 32-bit and now I have it installed on a Windows Seven 64-bit: it works great! No incompatibilities!

    -> The general configuration is easy?
    By the end of the installation a dialog box opens and lets you choose the source of sound output (if multiple sound cards) and a midi controller or any other input. In short then no problem to change all that: a single menu settings (audio, midi, general, etc. ..)

    -> The software runs he correctly on this configuration?
    No problem, it is very stable with this configuration!

    OVERALL OPINION

    -> How long you use it?
    Um, it's been 4 years and almost 5!

    -> Did you tried many other models before buying it?
    Nothing like ... Either simple or sequencers arrangers but nothing much "gas plant".

    -> What is so special that you love the most, least?
    The less cool it is unable to directly record voice .. But the solution is the function that allows rewire Reason to run in sync with a sequencer and record directly to it.

    -> How do you rate the quality / price?
    Excellent!

    -> With experience, you do again this choice?
    No doubt ...

    I was working with FL studio before but when I découvers Reason, I have not touched FL.
    Subsequently, I added some VST plugins variety of course but the base is very correct to start with this software!
    Then you have to work on it ...
    The price / quality ratio is still very good, especially when all functions operates in Reason.
    And I think that with experience, I would do without this choice problems

    Have a master keyboard is achement better! a little trick to start a big to post. USB bim

    also provide a sound card for MIDI, and for better audio performance calculations

    OVERALL OPINION

    I went through the Reason 3, 4, I'm about 5 ... and then soon the 6

    I love this software to the playful side.
    Aillant practiced a little on the machine, I found an easy visual.
    He got nothing to do with any other DAW software.

    When we practice the sound live on the hardware, if you like the drawing, not the patch panel, not always clear. Finally, it is my opinion, but this is what makes the personality of Reason

    And then all these little cables that move when the animal returns, it's so funny!

    However, this software fishing in the sound ... This is unfortunate since this is what he is asked to leave! The audio engine of the beast does not support excessive mixing, the oversized bass, reverbs too wide ...

    There are two ways to fix this shortcoming:

    - THE REWIRE

    Just click here to use another software master to act as mixer for all and all his synthesizer in Reason.
    example: CUBASE, LOGIC PRO, Ableton Live, Pro Tools ...

    - RECORD (by PropellerHead)

    The brand of the will itself solve the problem, and to create this app that controls midi Reason.
    But it also functions as a mixer, an audio engine with its own. The final summation is better quality, as with Rewire.

    Finally, Reason is a toy for completeness, on which one can spend hours and hours, as was done before the big fan of analog machine, the sampler, sequencer ...

    But of course, do not be afraid to lose it in the multitude of opportunities offered by my stuff, because it offers.

    Good luck

    I'm on Reason since version 1, cel is 8 years I use this software and NO dception especially since the 6 because I lch Pro-tools to work exclusively on Reason.

    With hard work and investment matris Reason is a single value sr BMOL it is unfortunate that we are the attrendre version 6 for a real turie software because I would not use NEVER any other (ProTools can be) taken to make my voice and my compo.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What jaime: new sequencer (like a sequencer), regrove mixer, the THOR (TIP OUF), tool bar, the new bank, and the rest of Reason. (I have used the arpeggiator pa).

    compared with the sequencer 3 mailings of the big, the bar tool (F8) is handy (new option which complements the sequencer)

    What I like least: ... may still be processing the audio is limited, but Reason c c normal.

    the price c ben jaime Reason I take and I will resume. On this and the next a good sound

    The most: the REGROOVABLE! Is a killer! I DLIR 5 minutes on a binary instrument and that is transformed into pieces with a jazzy swing of hell I just deadly! !
    The RPG8 is the best they love arpggiateur test.Simple of t given and effective, it does what you request.
    THOR is simply amazing! Its grain tilt and filters soignles trs trs typs "analog". Malable hope it is, and just as well! Props no longer a blushing face tnors synthse to the soft ... suddenly the substractor obsollte is, but hey, it dpanne toujourspour open old songs ...
    Finally, the squenceur.enfin! FINALLY a real squenceur plus.on 2000 and finally released from the stone age at this level ...
    The least: the sound banks are still moyennes.L 'Orkester is starting to really old, the Factory Sound Bank is still his same gal: okay ... but hey, the samples were factory software for 400th .. the real sounds of qualitil to buy the refills from one small ..

    The new modules are really like THOR Top. This combo offers a truly infinite possibilities of Fast Fashion .... Small snag if I find one on this website (Propellerhead) is EXCLUSIVELY in English.

    Acqurir before I tweak a lot of squenceurs (cubase, live) but it's DIFFERENT, reason it's inception, the extra combo is by Reason and Live example?

    Report qualitprix, remaining objective that remains "affordable", but hey this type of question is based on each respective fellowships is when a same amount! But I would do without this choice hsiter!

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    - On an Athlon XP 3200 + with 1GB of RAM, a presonus firebox with 8ms latency, the software works. Some swings in the graphic interface at the most loaded.

    Reason 3 for one year, 4 since its release.

    I love the proximity between the real hardware and virtual hardware, wiring possible (do not stop at the physical side of Reason, we can do much rewiring that can make as many synths as desired oscillator etc ...)

    I love the proximity between the real hardware and virtual hardware, wiring possible (do not stop at the physical side of Reason, we can do much rewiring that can make as many synths as desired oscillator etc ...)

    Most:
    Le Thor, the groove, scream 4, the lightness of the CPU

    the -:
    <ul>

    propellerhead principle: no midi out, not in audion. regrettable ways to integrate or old synths in stock.

    Reason manages a single keyboard (for notes, not controller). Can not record multiple tracks in parallel, very limited work for two. Or use two Reasons on two computers, but it falls on the lack of midi out for the synchro. dooomaaaage!

    The onboard effects are really not great (not Scream 4, and the echo mode of RV7000)

    the mixer is rotten. 128 position for a fader mixing, it does not work.

    is saturated easily in-house, must be given little attention to ultra meter on the side of instrumentals, no concept of clipping internally, it goes anyway, if all my sound is damaged

    the EQ of the table, like the M-Class EQ are far too inadequate to do anything to own

    not output multi-

    </ul>
    Conclusion: a great tool to start, then he must pass in order to have a true ReWire mixer built-in effects and real.

    and then c is normal because I'm kind of a grind sounds .... So it happens in extreme cases ^ ^

    OVERALL OPINION

    since:

    It must be 2, 3, version 2.5, then 3, then 3.5, and finally 4

    particularity:

    as:

    stability, efficiency, distortions and effects without hurting the pc platform MIDI 4 is very stable, level c sequencer is not bad (not quite as cubase but ca s approach to increasing), the accessibility of the software , price

    Cons:

    a MIDI stability not as stable and clean that a Cubase ... but from here soon, it will be equivalent (version 5 I think ^ ^), and finally the AC is minimal differences between the two.
    and still no audio input on Reason .... Finally, one day can be ...

    Other models:

    2.5, 3, 3.5 ... and 4!!

    Q / P:

    Incredible, especially today with a MIDI interface that Cubase has an almost pete 900
    So I think that even Reason 5 (still has that rhythm) will be better than cubase.

    Exept for the opportunity to record the audio, that is only found on Cubase.
    But at least, Reason is content to just the audio composition, and does it very well and suddenly has better effects and distortions, that one who planted cubase has anything goes!!

    Redo is choice:

    Yes, yes and yes
    And I do it again for 5!
    grd with pleasure and a lot of impatience!
    hoping also an audio input on Reason 5 (a dream ^ ^)

    The performances follow, Reason is stable for some time, with current machines, plus too much trouble. Le Thor, at the main novelty of the objects of the rack is almost a Reason in Reason. I have not the patches, some of which are made by Plaid, clearly Aesthetics. There are ways to do good things, with an ergonomic tool pdagogique always enough. Reason is the qt, but it inhrent any tool.

    For the price, there really is not complaining.

    At the interface level, the majority of the objects remained the same rack, and there is enjoyable as Reason does not age.

    If the following versions intgrent audio, and a new reverb (convolution?), We should have a good killing in his hands.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use Reason 4 years, it's true that synthse patissait some of his old modules (add and granular), the Thor was enough to rekindle the flame.
    The ergonomics of the tool goes hand in hand with sound: pte fat and electro.
    And Reason as usable as a plug in via Rewire, there is not really complain.
    More "Master" is really not bad, it does not suffice heavy projects, but has to be MRIT raliste level interface, and REALLY make it sound, careful when boosting same.

    Patches are always made by + / - big names, which is not dsagrable, leaving the Propellerhead crdibilit they are connate.

    I use Reason for a pte that emerges nonetheless, mainly RedRum, the Thor, the Vocoder, etc ... I m'touffe a little if I do the pure Reason, the Associtation Rack / Sequencer begins be a little tiring, and the sound feels stale quickly.
    Reason I come as a big machine, trs perfect, but it still lacks an opening to be squenceur alone. Thing that Reason is complte well with Live.

    I'll end on a more superficial: the graphics of Reason is really enjoyable. Trs squares while remaining Aesthetics, ca does not in bad working conditions.

    I see lots of good advice so I&#39;ll deal with it all ... because Reason is far from perfect, but talking about!

    - The installation is done it without problems?
    Installation from a single DVD is significant compared to previous versions.

    - Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
    No, on all my machines (Mac and PC), I have never had any problems.

    - The general configuration is easy?
    Setup is simple, the parameters of input / output / MIDI / audio / latency, etc. ... are visual and simple.

    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    Absolutely and French.

    Nothing to say for now.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    - What is the configuration of your computer?
    iMac Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 3GB RAM, 160GB HD + 2 * 300GB external.

    - The software works he correctly on this configuration?
    Well, I must say that with such a config I fully appreciate the possibilities of Reason.
    I had a little iBook G4 1GHz with 512MB of RAM before and had to clear to be careful not to overload the rack ... but now my options are almost unlimited with this machine!
    Note that Refills Piano / Drum kit / Abey Road keyboard / Etc ... are much more resource intensive! Personally it does not bother me more than that, but I had to give up on my ibook Reason, which saturated with a simple combinator of SteinwayD as soon as I played more than 4 notes simultaneously. These top up are to be excluded if you have a small setup!

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    I use Reason for over four years as he was still in version 3.0.

    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    That&#39;s where we get down to business ...

    MOST:
    - The revamped sequencer: Finally! Finally, we can automate changes in tempo and time signature, it was sorely lacking!
    - The principle of the blocks of notes (so pattern) that can easily blow the copy / paste without taking the lead.
    - The updating of the labels between the machines in the rack and sequencer tracks ... it starts to get drunk to do everything twice: I write like "Piano" on my sequencer track but my machine is still called "NN-XT1" ... it starts to get boring.
    - The toolbox ... it is now quick and easy to quantize, transpose, to calibrate the length of notes, etc ... you win a lot of time what.
    - The Thor ... what a great invention, very complete, with a sound of a synth ... Finally!
    - The new arpeggiator, practice!
    - It seems to me, and export to Wav you lose at least with version 3.0, which puffed a lot of signal!
    - The breakdown of the click at the time of registration which did not have the 3.0.
    - The possibility of reducing the size of the "Hardware Device" part (top rack).
    - Compatibility with older versions ... casually, it&#39;s still super handy!

    The - (gniark gniark gniark!): P:
    - Load time patches are sometimes very long, it is a serious defect that has dragged the start and that makes its use sometimes painful to see the live completely unusable.
    - Assignment can not be the same no MIDI controller with two buttons on the rack! ... another boring thing that drags along.
    - No converter "to resume control change" ... shame because with the merger / split CV that would be ultra convenient!
    - Can not load patch 2 of 2 virtual machines simultaneously! Which slowed even more load times live ... it&#39;s downright unmanageable!
    At worst, they could think of one kind of Total Recall assignable to MIDI to make a complete change of time in a rack-optimized ... Well no ... it is always the misery and it makes use of this software not on stage ... Which is a shame because with the new computers that would be quite feasible. In addition, other features (MIDI Learn, many controls as possible in real time) lend themselves perfectly to play on stage! I am not speaking of sounds, we would like to bring on stage! ... Well no ... because of this detail, painful, it&#39;s still a challenge to get on stage and Reason to use it as its main generator ... frankly a shame! What untapped potential!
    - No audio ... yet so it would be convenient to record a guitar or a small voice in Reason ... !
    - No TAP tempo ... Yet to wedge samples in the sequencer it would really must.
    - Data output of Thor CVout behave strangely ... (Range of values ​​with other non-standard machines a priori).

    Good short, we see very quickly the limitations of the software when it comes to get him on stage, it&#39;s pretty frustrating. It would however be great to produce his music in Reason and to export their favorite sounds on stage with a few controllers and a simple keyboard controller ... And suddenly, in Rewire Ableton Live it could be something crazy ... In short, Uncle Propellerhead, if you read me ... ! : D

    I put 5 / 10 ... neither good nor bad ... many things to improve if we consider the potential of this software. I do not care that Reason never becomes a VST host (gas plant hello!) ... however, the day we can have a computer with Reason backstage, I&#39;ll be the king of oil, and Propellerhead will be many new friends I think!

    Reason is not a bad software. It has some problems but important:

    Can not Save the audio
    It does not support VST, RTAS and neither nor the Audio Units
    And finally its audio engine is not top (you will never get out of his big sound with Reason Rican)
