    - Installation is it without problem?
    As far as I can remember simplissime WAS

    - Have you experienced any incompatibility?
    Not that I remember

    - The configuration gnrale is easy?
    Simple enough even if I had a little gallery install my MIDI keyboard. But it was due to my incompetence in this area.

    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    The manual is just great. A small book on Mao in money. Everything a beginner needs is inside.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    - What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)

    - What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
    I have an Asus laptop that runs XP, a rather modest config.
    Duo T2050
    120GB
    1GB Ram
    Integrated sound card (Realtek HD)

    - The software works he correctly on this configuration?
    Niquel Yes, even when the rack is loaded there is very little slowdown.

    - This software + hardware configuration is stable?
    Yes

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    1 years or so

    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Plus: All in one, no need to go for gallery Vst a right to left. The Matrix (a blessing). The NNXT which is very powerful. The Malstrom which I used all the time. The effects do everything correct. The rack very beautiful and practical. Wiring the more intuitive than a drop-down menu. The Refills. The Rewire. The sound in general and lots of other stuff that I let you devouvirir.

    Cons: One or two more synth would not refuse. The sequencer not necessarily very attractive and sometimes shows its limits (especially when compared to monsters like Cubase). Its major weakness is perhaps the bank drum sound really feeble. But the refills are Luckily.

    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    No I started with, and after a period of blur you get used quickly enough after all.

    - How do you report qualitprix?
    Correct, although for many 4OO in software ca can paretre much.

    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    Yes without hesitation. For those who believe it is solely for the Techno or Trance that is a false ide. I use it for the Abstract Hip Hop Electro and it's perfect. The matrix is ​​extra, the redrum is all I ask of a drum machine. In short a really great tool that can be coupled and used more practically as a vst with other software.

    I brief the board and everyone is just looking beyond the first impression can sometimes be put off.

    Ben I pay now I will try to sell it. A real stew.
    The trick there is 1.3 GB, not possible to put in full screen, you need a tank + 12 to import a refill, and more drops without MIDI keyboard.

    FYI, the era (NoiseTracker, Protracker, etc. ...), its a great software took a 80K, and anyone going over 20 minutes could get a sound.

    The use of an almost obligatory MIDI keyboard (and a sound card 400euros) is also DLIR. If I had the dough I would pay in amount of synths, not the ersatz.

Certainly it is less convenient, which did not empcher to use this for a year prs. The keyboard I use now has, moreover, that with two octaves which is not the only good when IDAL but same (question of use). Note that whatever software you want to use a master keyboard is essential to virtually systmatique fawn. Without fatally buy a sound card, when I beginners with my USB keyboard has not happened not too bad, good, now I do not do it again (latency, etc.)..

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The software runs fine on my PC trs (Asus P5LD2, Intel DualCore, 4GB DDR2) and my soundcard (ESI Quataire) and just as well on my MacBookPro.
    The performance of the software are many:
    He possde a great diversity of instrument, effect and thus sounds.
    -The possibilities are endless routing is fun.
    -The Accessibility assistive technology software that is direct dj minimal knowledge about the use of a synthtiseur or groove box.
    -The interface is omniprsente, no hidden windows using the resource in Czech.
    -Stable and undemanding in terms of power (I did run on old machines, well, do not ask 50 track but for a small DLIR password).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have been using ending for 6 years. What I like most is the cot play, you plug the machines ... What I like least is when the same display, not full screen when you're on a laptop screen was squint to read. The sound needs an evolution, it is a bit flat. It's OK with some good effects or mastering but when the big sound in Reason? I have not tried other acqurir before, I used (on board) to learn and perfect c'tait today if I know how a synthtiseur and What is an LFO or modulation is thanks Reason. the report is qualitprix trs good. Exprience I would do with this choice, there will always be a version of Reason on my computer.

    Propellerhead Reason 3.0 is a multi purpose electronic music sequencer. It works on its own for composing MIDI and virtual based instruments and also can be rewired into an audio sequencer like Pro Tools or Cubase. I was able to install Reason 3.0 easily on a number of different systems. It is easy to do as I've never had an compatibility issues. I don't have a manual for this software, but it could definitley come in handy as the program is pretty in depth.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    I am currently running Reason 3.0 on a Mac Book Pro with a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I used to run it on a Hewlett Packard lap top with a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM. I have been able to run this smoothly on both systems both as a stand alone and running it through Pro Tools LE via rewire. Reason 3.0 has run smoothly since I installed it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using Reason 3.0 for about three or four years. I use it for programming drum beats to use as a scratch track. I use it with an M-Audio Keystation 49e to play the virtual instrument in the sequencer. I mostly use the redrum and looper sections of this program, but the synthesizers also sound great. I usually put the drum beat back into Pro Tools and record acoustic instruments over it. Reason is a powerful piece of software with a lot of capabilities. I don't know what other software I would compare this to other than Apple Logic as they are somewhat similar. I like both programs for different reasons and both work great in a number of different situations. I love using Reason 3.0 and hope I am able to upgrade to Reason 4 as I have heard great things about it!

    Features are great, there are tons you can do with Reason 3.0, love the combinator. For a software synth/sequencer, its a great program. The only thing I hate is that Reason no longer opens its own window when you open the program, requiring you to leave one project open at all times, or restart Reason.

    Price paid

    300.00 USD

    Pretty easy to use, like many people, I believe directions and instructions are not for me, let me put my hands on it!

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Sounds are kind of weak and thin, need to be mixed well in cubase/protools/nuendo etc. for a good sound. There is, however, with 3.0 a good selection of sounds.

    Ha, well no crashes ever, so I guess its durable.

    The features of this program are astonishing.There's a vast amount of potential coming from this program.I hope for a better sequencer,and more powerful sound ability from the program.In the end I'd like to see Propellerhead make this program into more than just a compositional tool.I'd like to be able to record directly into the program,and not have to export my audio for further processing.Propellerhead have made this program almost feel like a stand alone instrument rather than powerful workstation.

    Price paid

    $450 USD

    Although Reason 3.0 has a few bugs to work out,I would say that even getting earlier versions of this program may prove to be quite a feat to work around until you get alot of things down,such as :Wiring,Mastering,Mixing,Programming,Additive and Subtractive synthesis,and sampling.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Ah finally Reason 3.0,this program boasts on the new combinator and MClass Mastering Tools to improve it's sound.Overall,the patches in the subtractor and malstrom are fairly decent.I spend time tweaking factory sounds or creating my own.Scream 4 and the RV7000 give a big help in giving great sound quality.Overall the sound quality of this program has a weakness,the company themselves tell you to process your music outside of the program due to the program being merely a compositional device rather than a full out mixing mastering recording station.

    The program is fairly stable,although users will swear this program will never crash on you that's untrue I've had this program crash on me several times,but I believe that's a bug issue at this point.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I like this program,I wouldn't say I love it quite yet however.Give Propellerhead a few years to make some changes and perhaps this will become even more of a competitor.

    Reason is the king of feature due to back pannel wiring and the CV gates. Once you explore these and find out what you can do Reason will take you far. THe VSt thing and the vocal are missng, but I hope they never add them. That is not the goal of this program. This is for supppling you with allt the sounds you will need for prodcution. I just wish they found a way to incoperate recyle into the program

    It not eas at 1st, but its eaiser than most. If you take the time to read the book, you will be leaps and bounds ahead of everyone else.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    They added the masterin suite to it. This is what I have been waiting for. No need to rewire your track to make it bang. As from 2.5 the RV7000 reverb and the scream4 distortion unit are top notch. You can get an execlellent sound with it

    laptop. This never crashes as much as other programs, thats why I dont want the VSTs

    OVERALL OPINION

    THis is my 2nd hand. I use this on the ship due to the fact that I can't always have my MPC out. I can load samples and finish the entire track and even add some shine to it with the new MClass.

    With the new mastering suite,your sounds can pack a punch. But it would of been even better if it had some type of recylcing device where you can chop of your samples.

    Price paid

    $400

    Pretty simple to use. Everything seems standard, at least for me.But lets say for the average Joe it might take a month or so to fully understand every tool.

    Reason 3.0 is pack with a ton of new sounds.The sound has gotten alot better, though I wish they had better strings. If your looking for a Hip/Hop production tool,look for reasons 3.0.But reasons isn't just made for Hip/Hop.

    Great quality and great durability. Its not reasons you have to worry about its really how good of shape is your PC in. Reason 3.0 takes up alot of memory,not too much though. Nothing real noticable. Souldn't effect your internet speed or nothing like that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I simply can't leave this program alone. How bad I always wanted a MPC,reason 3.0 is addictive.

    Price paid

    459.00 USD

    if your new to the reason environment it looks a little overwhelming at first but the graphical user interface(knobs,sliders,buttons) are all so user friendly is insaine.. click move the mouse.. button moves,after you have set your sound folders and options up you can load sounds fast this program works with you to create great stuff..i love the back of the rack..hit the tab button on your keyboard and thats were the fun begins reroute,re-patch, experiment even this process is not so difficult if you have a basic concept of how sound is routed(i.e. ins and outs)

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Let me start by saying ive been a fan of the reason platform since version 1.0, reason has always had the ability to load .wav files but with versions 2.0/2.5 and now 3.0 you can load sound fonts and this allows an endless supply of new sounds to tweek with, although the factory soundbank has grown across all three versions and has really nice sounds they need a little tweeking to sound full that seems to be the achilles heel of the propellerhead sound bank. but when it all boils down the reason format is a well rounded and has a full sound when used ti its fullest potential..quite a few people have said reason tracks werent quite loud enough but with the adddition of the mastering suite propellerhead has pushed reason into (in this aspiring musicians opinion)a true instrument.
    i have purchased all three versions...and never had a problem with crashes or glitches.. the quality of the software is excellent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Simply put i love it!!!!!!in my little studio room its a staple that holds the weight of my production process
