    Reason Studios Reason 1Published on 05/09/12 at 00:30
    Propeller head reason was perfect for me when I was just starting out. I had no direction and didn’t know where to start when it came to software. When I first started using it I was in school and really couldn’t afford much but I saved up and purchased Reason 1.0 and I am so glad that I did. I still use it to this day (well not 1.0 I have upgraded) but reason 1.0 has taught me all of the basics in computer recorded, midi editing, using a mixer and effects and how to track out songs for further use in pro tools. All of my music career so far has branched out from Reason 1.0.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The performance of it is great and you couldn’t ask for much more I havent had a problem with it when I was using it and still don’t today with the most up to date version of reason. You can get all of the basics down pretty quick and if you really take the time and read the manual and watch some tutorials online you will be able to go to the next level as a reason user because there are so many things that you can do with Propeller head Reason. If you think you can master everything right off the bat and with out a manual you are crazy.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Take your time when you get this software, Reason 1.0 can be a bit overwhelming to the newbie. Study other peoples process when making music. Learn the ins and the outs of the program and learn how to create a full song in it and you will be amazed on the potential that it has. Its worth every single penny. I am not sure if you can still purchase 1.0 though? They have upgraded since then. You might want to look into that.

    Stability is exellent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use Reason for over a year, I find q'aprs becoming aware of the use of modules and all functions of the software (and it's not done with version 2.0 and 2.5) that This leaves free all Creations.
    With a price even a little of all lev I have not beat the software squenceur.
    I redeem it on.

    Propeller head Reason 1 changed the way that I looked at software for music creation. Reason 1.0 was the first time that I saw the power of softwares and wanted to get away from all of the hardware in my studio. I was able to free up a ton of space in my studio at home by getting rid of the hardware and going with Propeller Head Reason 1. Reason had everything that I needed anymore and I had a great run with reason software. Reason allowed me to see the potential that a software has, and it opened up the gateway for me to use a bunch of other programs that created all of the compositions I have made today.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I ran Propeller Reason 1 on my windows xp computer and it worked great, never had 1 single crash or freeze up. Also upgrading it was extremely easy as well, just did an online upgrade it only took about 10 minutes and I had the newest version of Reason. I have been using reason off and on for about 8 years strong, but today I don’t use it as much as I use to . I feel that Reason’s Mixer hasn’t moved into the right direction with the way that I like everything set up. Reason is a very powerful program but I thin they took to much time making it look like a powerful program instead of making it user friendly but still powerful.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall Reason is a great software, I wouldn’t recommend it for the beginner because it will throw you for a loop, there are other software’s out on the market that a beginner can try for free and download and if they like it they can purchase. But after you get use to using and sequencing with software I suggest you come back and try Reason.

    There are lots of very good modules for Reason. With a lack of DX and VST support there are less possibilities than some other programs, but what’s there is very good.

    Price paid

    £110 Second Hand

    One of the best things about Reason is its ease of use. It is very intuitive. Plus the routing possibilities on the back of the modules sets it apart from other programs.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Excellent sound quality. The effects are slightly lacking, so your track can suffer a little at mix down. Ideally you need to Rewire into a VST effect program. The Subtractor synth sounds a bit weak when auditioning sounds, but it works great in a mix.

    Rock solid. It has never crashed once! That's......

    Rock solid. It has never crashed once! That's the main "reason" I use it. The lack of DX and VST support probably helps allot.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's the best music software I have ever used. It's ease of use and rock solid performance means I'm going to be using it for years! For once computer technology doesn’t get in the way of music creation.

    I would love to see a MIDI out feature, besides that it's the very best program I've ever come across with.

    Price paid

    $399

    it's the most hands on software, ideal for people starting to make music. the user interface it's the easiest and the fastest to work with.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Stable as a rock. propellerhead software aupport are the best I love the whole company, honest.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's the heart of my studio. my main tool for composition. period

    Absolutely amazing feature set. Limitless possibilities! Only thing it is lacking is VST support, but anyone who understands the relationship between steinberg and propellerheads knows why this won't ever happen, at least not in the forseeable future.

    Price paid

    $230 US

    Does it get any easier?

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Maybe support for 5.1-10.2 will be added in the near future? (crosses fingers)

    Top notch... I was not dissapointed, not even a little bit!

    OVERALL OPINION

    They need to add an eleven to this one... =)

    Considering this software is usually described as "studio in a box", it does lack something for me: I wish I could record straight into it, instead of having to export reason songs as audio files into cubase(or cakewalk) to finish the song. You can import an audio file into the sampler, but it's messy. Other than that, the features are great, and extensive. A really wonderful piece of software.

    Price paid

    £150ish

    Easy enough for a novice. I abhor manuals, so I study the examples and tutorial songs to learn. But you can definitely feel your way through. I'm sure it's even easier if you read the manuals.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I have a Soundblaster Audigy soundcard... I've never had a problem w/ sound.

    The propellorheads website is chock full of help and info. Free samples to download... I've never had to contact customer support and I've had it two years now, so good on Reason!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this as my lifeline really, I have a midi keyboard, and so far it's saved me getting a piano. It's really got everything a budding musician could want. A synth and sampler w/ a HUGE library of sounds... a drum machine, a Dr REX loop thingy which is a life saver for those of us (me) who don't know the semantics of programming a drum machine. load of effects. This will be a great addition to any studio.

    Lets be clear, Reason 2.5 is the most powerful software sequencer known to man. It only gets a 9 because its missing the one component that would make it unstoppable, the ability to record live audio. Reason's power comes from its seemly infinite flexibility as it allows you to experiment not only with sound, but also the way modules are chained together giving you countless options.

    Price paid

    R2500.00

    To get it to make a sound is childsplay but like any good tool it takes loads of time and coffee to master, and even then you prbably won't have unleashed half of its potential.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The sounds are very useful, but for only a small grouping of genres mainly in the electronica, synthpop area. The previous statement is a lie and should be disregarded comlpetely. I am not a sausage because every sound patch in reason is completely editable and limitations are pretty much only the the mind of the user.

    you could gig with it, if your idea of gigging is clicking on a screen. never needed customer support although i sent prop heads an email after i got 2.5 telling them how great they were and they sent me a bunch of eflowers, funny, thats about the time i got that hardcore computer virus... hmmm....

    OVERALL OPINION

    If this program could bare children i've make it take the pill and then "marry" it.

    As far as features, it's got pretty much everything to make music, although it's lacking the ability to sample audio. This is easily overcome by using audio editor and importing.

    Very easy, but like anything new there will be that initial learning curve. The interface is awesome (it's greatest asset, IMO). The help menu is fine.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Honestly, I'm not too impressed with the sounds that come out it. Others seem to think that Reason is a gift from the heavens, but when it comes to producing music on a professional level, I'm not feelin' it. my biggest problem is that the overall sound is lifeless; no energy or anything.

Even when using the same samples as I do with my MPC, there is a considerable difference in quality.

    It never crashed, but I did experience problems when having Cubase VST32 installed. I can't remember the error verbatum, but basically I couldn't launch Reason if Cubase was on my system. I never figured the problem out, though. Never had the desire to contact customer support. And no, the buttons don't bend or break.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it mainly for demo work and throwing ideas together at the studio. I didn't purchase it, but if I had, I wouldn't dash through burning buildings to save the CD-ROMs.
