    Installation - No problem during this process. However, I regret that an update (I had to make the passage in V3.0.4) requires a complete uninstall, and that we must safeguard his tracks before uninstalling the old version (they are purely cancel service with any the rest). Second regret only the main program is updated and a copy of both CD sound is yet again requested. And we must re-enter the license key, even if it has already saved (I know, other programs do the same, but others store the info and do not want more).

In summary, no installation problems, but heavy enough for the updates.
    Incompatibility - None encountered yet.
    General configuration - A little confusing for some things, but like a lot of software it can be done fairly quickly.
    Manuel - He is sufficient to start.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Computer Configuration - Motherboard Asus P5AD2 / P4 3.6 GHz / 4GB Ram / 4 x 200GB / RME Fireface800.
    Correct operation of this configuration? - Yes
    Performance - RAS, it works very well
    Hardware + Software - Stable

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall - I admit that overall it is a good product, although ultimately I do not sound so extraordinary as this (there are still very good, and I probably a little too used to my other sound libraries).
    Repeat this choice? - I would say that if I started in computer music, yes, definitely, I would find this program great and would recommend. But as a user of Cubase since its beginnings on the Atari, I'm a little puzzled. I think I should try it before buying it.
    Unacceptable - I can not understand is that such software lets close with a piece worked, not backed up, without offering to save him! I lower my bill primarily for this reason.
    Conclusion - I am impressed with the possibilities and the overall quality of this software, the developers have done a remarkable job. But this product may not bring me as much as I expected (I expected more of him to use as a sound bank and ignore the part sequencer is a bit missed).

    infinite machine, configured as hardware (ie in rel), Conectas

    with a powerful pc and this software, a sound card eficace and good sound banks, the machines are a throw, reason exceeds the audio quality and quantity of sound bank is evident! if n is that we will never

    But if that mean? 400 euros for a price you electribe new drum machine as much as you want, samplers etc ...

    The report price is good quality ... but there are no NEED TO COMPARE TO CUBASE!!
    I think that is not a hardware simulator such as Reason!

    Or is the problem? nowhere, but Reason is special: c a hybrid hardware and software,

    live after the problem with respect to machines c is the background noise pc, but the c in the field of monitoring metaphysical ... not to neglect all the same.

    Let's face it, a hole q Propellerhead the world of Mao and shouted loudly "this is a program as simple as a machine as versatile and powerful than a computer!"

    Finally it depends on the musical work that we want: to play in a band is the panacea to save ca has nothing to do, to compose c very well, but not necessarily the number one in terms Browsing for the live it can be a challenge bigger that Ableton Live, but most rewarding ... trsncessaire but not enough! No concession for small budgets, we must.

    - Have you experienced any incompatibility?
    Not to play with the empty rewire to synchronize it with Cubase or Logic, this is the only major weakness is that I think this software is not designed to be used as a plugin but as time software unique.

    For my part I use it to simulate orchestral instruments and this is stunning. For synths modules are perfect. The big news of Reason 3 from the two is the creation of a full rack of mastering (the combinator), it gives the composition of the punch parraissait couraging to give effect "lack of bass "in previous versions.

    Plus: The synths are very pleasurable, as is exit to play the violin on the piano with small effects archer.
    Cons: The guitars are super virtual void but good quote me a program that virtualizes corect a guitar?? Systm pnible rewire the use and trs heavy compared to Systmes plugin implementations of its competitors (such as Native Instrument or under windaube Fruityloops).

    A bit expensive, knowing that he must quickly acquire sound banks (refills) to Specializes in anything other than the electro (yuck) pop.

    Sound card / MIDI EgoSys WaMiRack 24.

    The software works he correctly on this configuration?
    Absolutely.

    What performance? (If quantifiable)
    None of the pieces did dmonstration Exceeds CPU consumption of the first quarter.

    This software + hardware configuration is stable?
    Yes, no crashes so far.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    1 week.

    What is the particular feature you like most?
    The intgration and ergonomics at all.
    the least?
    Without advocating for intgration of VST / VSTi (which would be a mistake), I think it lacks a bridge, whatever its form. J'aiemrais as to use Reaktor with Reason, without having to implement (and pay) a style squenceur Cubase ...

    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    No.

    How do you report qualitprix?
    Good, especially since the prices are cheaper in Paris than PropShop!

    Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...

    on the other hand, in the case of those (like me) who use computer music prg for a long time, people come here quite easily. Personally, I use cubase for over 20 years.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    PC Pentium 4 / 3.0 - 1 MB of ram / sound card Wami Rack / 3 hard drives (1 for prg, one for sound banks, for a direct to disq, Windows XP)

    No problem running

    CPU performance: Reason is apparently trs economic for the processor, despite the number and complexity of solid sounds that there are ways to deal simultanment.

    My configuration is fully stable (but is installed by an expert vendor in the studio, music and computer science)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for one month

    sounds:
    I love it. Reason has done everything for me complmentaire prg and other plugins. For comparison I use them: the great, groove agent, all Plugsound, HALion, FM7 + for external synths (jv1080, Wavestation, tx81, DX7, CS1x ...)
    Whereas the bnk supplmentaires are available on the net is unlimited. In addition, by listening to the sounds of chantilloneurs of reason (nnxt. ..), I truly believe we can CRER what you want when looking around

    Sync:
    I work in sync with Reason Cubase (in rewire): no problem = Reason is used almost as a plugin
    but ... : Apparently there is no way to control the change of paterns and sound from cubase (as one might imagine using a function such as "prg change")
    Thus, if only one works with paterns (matrix, redrum ...) you have to work on both the squenceur Reason and Cubase. eg you insrez a break in time "x", you have also the same number of insrer extent reason = waste of time.

    Price:
    I still like the external synth, I tend to compare prices with those synths ... Reason in this case sold a ridiculous price.
    Compared with other programs, it seems Competitive trs: 400 euros for all that is available seems a reasonable price trs (you can find even cheaper but in this case can not b NFIC probably not total free technical support if needed). For those who would use it as squenceur, gnrateur Entire its hand, it's really cheap. There is missing is the audio recording in this case (probably partially compensensable with chantiloneurs).

    Overall:
    I have long hsit saying it would be too "duplicate". I finally cracked and since then I tell myself that all my external synths become deprecated. In any case, I use systmatiquement. Srs my plugins are always good (I got), but Reason has really become a must IMMEDIATE.
    It can be used in a lot of styles (flat, house, "pseudo" classical, jazz ...)
    In retrospect, with what I know now, if I buy beginners and had a sound prg in the first place is that I would start by Reason.

    really, it's all good I put = 10 (for now)
