    Reason Studios Reason 2.5Published on 10/29/03 at 15:00
    After years of testing software, I discovered Reason 1.0. This program made it possible for me to make music with the few things I know. I bought Reason 2.5 in a store and it was about €400.

    You can combine as many samplers and drummachines as you like.
    You can put any sound in them and play with it.
    Every style off music can be made with it.
    Via Rewire you can caonnect it to your sequencer.

    It's not so easy to master your song.But this is not the point for Reason, making music is.
    Wavelab,T-Racks,... are beter for the job.

    It has a very nice layout and everything is very clear. To be able to use 2 screen is very usefull. You can splitt your sequencer and hardware (it looks like hardware, the NN-19, DrRex, NN-XT,...).
    Duallhead vgacard is the way to go with Reason.

    The best music production software I've ever seen. Easy to use. Nice layout.
    But it misses some things, like a spectrum meter,phase scope.

    Good value for the money

    On the Mac, the installation is really transparent and fast trs. The passage of 2.0 2.5 was done in fifteen minutes (mostly because it takes insrer dsinsrer both CD and by the way, which is slow with an Apple SuperDrive). Then a manual too short on news, but the sound does not read it s'coute. 10, so.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    On my Mac G4 887, I have not yet found the limits of the software. A dozen instruments, at least twice as many racks (especially equalizer and compressor), five or six tables, mix, just the new reverb, and runs like a charm. Really, it was a studio right top quality low price. Finally, the stability is so far absolute, not a single crash, not the least error.…

    OVERALL OPINION

    APRS one week, I must say that Reason adsormais really not that he lacked: a legalization table a little better, on a first shipment of effects, and especially a good reverb trs quality (sisi) provided that we take the trouble to "plug in" module CONTRL, and trying to DIFFERENT types of reverb. Few software can string a revberb with equalizer, which is the case here, which greatly helps to refine the sound. It's the same for the compressor (well, let's say that it could evolve a bit to a more graphic, but just to say something). Finally, how can we not acknowledge the right ide of Propellerheads offer us, we are buyers of Reason 2.0 (dj not too expensive but not far) put this fantastic day? I have only one word: viva la Sude :-)

    No problem, quickly and smoothly, no prs 10 minutes or 15 seconds, adpend whether or not we want to recover each time the CD Factory Sound Bank.
    Problem of compatibility: Cubase 5 is not compatible with the rewire of V 2.5, it is only compatible with Cubase SX. 1 point less for dtail.
    The manual? To do that .... No need for manual c'tait is configured like a breeze.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use Reason has always been my opinion is the top, cot simplicity and performance, we can couraging his music without the fuss, all I say, strongly future releases, so we s'clater can still plusssss.

    The particularity of Reason is that it has a super soft supplmentaire interesting, such as RECYCLED, which prpare DrRex for the loop. And I love, because you get good result of trs that allow couraging the remix, mix quickly trs.
    Otherwise, Rewire, which allows rvolution great couple and Reason sync, with the largest soft music, Digital Performer, Cubase, Logic Audio, etc. ....
    And finally a new kid, Rebirth, to make us a little of acid.

    So much for long life finish Reason!

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Despite my deprecated configuration (Athlon TBird 1Ghz, 256 MB SDRAM), the software is perfectly stable, and has never experienced any "saturation".
    It allows the use of a large number of synths and effects without blocking your computer so that you can not go read your emails!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Reason I test in its demo version 1.0 some time ago but, as all beginners, its interface compltement Drout me ... I regret also always a tutorial for people who are in this situation. Despite this incident, I could not call rsister version 2, not counting the gnreuse (but somewhat normal) which consits Propellerheads offer to upgrade to version 2.5 for free.
    I am currently a drug of Reason, I do not spend more for my compos exprimentales, noize, electro or house is the perfect tool, and I pse my words, it intgre everything a composer software needs. The next Prodigy album would also RALIS t 95% with Reason 2.5 unique is tell you how powerful it is.
    I now support the intgration a VST compressor more powerful, and ... not really anything else!

    Ultra simple on Mac OS X. Once the sound banks loaded, the audio hardware and MIDI interface configured, so good.
    Bad point for the manual, too brief, which returns systematically electronic reference manual.

    Reason running on a Powermac Dual 1.42 Ghz, 1 GB of RAM and a card with Motu 828 Mk2. I use it with Logic Pro cnonjointement via rewire. No problem! The number of modules that can be stacked in the rack without saturating the processor is simply amazing. Bravo!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for about a year. I love this software for its faithful reproduction of a studio hardware. Everything is there, in the sampler synth granular through the drum machine, the unit of effect, the table mix, the dynamics processors etc.. The sound is impeccable, the interface never faulted (5min me enough to start composing) and the possibility of routing audio through the virtual jacks are simply awesome! I love the drive REx lines combined with the drum machine. This is the ultimate duo to create loops incredible! Damage, however, that audio is not provided (not record vocals in reason)
    E nrésumé: a highly flexible software (I use it in rewire with logic pro but it also runs stand alone or as a single virtual instrument) that can be used for virtually any style of music. I would add that Liam Howlett (Prodigy) composed his new album via a 95% Reason. No comment ...

    The software works perfectly, although more demanding than before in system resources, but given the quality of the effects we forgive him!

    I've just effects. Those are the most j'apprcie:
    The new-Reverb: Hyper powerful, with a 30aine of pRSET
    -The unison: Same, the depth of sound is multiplied by 100 (no no no j'exagre!)
    -The vocoder is very practical for the equalizer

    I pass over the other but know that with these new effects, the possibility of ventail is * huge *.

    T also changes have made to other modules such as the mixer who is rewarded with more buttons.
