Reason Studios Reason 6Published on 01/13/13 at 21:57
Reason 6.5 is a DAW that gives you an unlimited amount of tracks for audio, and a whole bunch of effects right out of the box. The soft synths that come with it are decent too, but they are not good enough to make you want to use them without purchasing any other synths. There are a lot of sounds/synths but the quality of them is average at best. But the effects stand out big time to me, they have made some major upgrades to the effects section giving more and better sounding effects than ever before.

Installing Reason 6.5 took a long time on my laptop (which is where I use it the most) which I didn’t understand because my laptop has more than enough disk space and it has a fast processor. I am guessing it was just because Reason 6.5 just had a lot of stuff to install and load onto my disk space even though it didn’t seem like it took that much disk space up.
The best part about Reason 6.5 is that you will have everything you need right out of the box to start creating a song and finish it all in this program without the need for anything external. You can start your composition and record to it, then mix and master your whole song right in Reason 6.5. If you want to start getting better sounds and plug ins down the road then you can do that and they will work perfect with Reason 6.5.
The workflow of Reason 6.5 could not be better because it is made for a beginner but is efficient enough for a veteran user. I choose Reason 6.5 over a lot of other software’s for that reason only. If I were to go back in time knowing what I know now I would have started working with Reason 6.5 over anything else. Reason 6.5 is all 64 bit operation and it is very easy to time stretch your audio without it effecting the quality. Reason 6.5 is a do it all monster!

6 to 6.5 already

Reason Studios Reason 6Published on 11/13/12 at 23:33
Propellerhead Reason 6 is the newest version that they have come out with this year, they are already on version 6.5 though due to some issues with some drivers they were having shortly after the release of version 6. You can use Reason 6 on your Mac or PC and it will work great on both as long as you have enough CPU and RAM to run it efficiently. If you have a PC you can run it on Vista, Windows 7 or XP. It will run great on any of those systems but be careful because if you have Vista or Windows 7 you will need to have the 64 bit systems and not the 32 bit systems or you will run into some major problems.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Mac users just need to have a newer version of the OS X, I think they need to have 10.5 or later in order to run Reason 6. Right out of the box reason has some very good plug ins and effects that you can use right away without having to purchase other plug ins. One of the reasons that I feel in love with this software is that you can record an unlimited amount of tracks right into it and if you computer can handle it the possibilities are endless. Some of my sessions are pretty big with a lot of live instruments and tons of vocals so this is very handy for my set up.

OVERALL OPINION

Setting up Reason 6 was simple, as long as your system meets the requirements you will be using it in no time. This is where Reason has had issues in the past with drivers on certain systems. They have to do updates because a lot of users are having problems, though I have no experienced any myself. I am very happy with this software, I have been using this version of Reason since early spring.

Best Dollar I've ever Spent

Reason Studios Reason 6Published on 11/14/11 at 20:28
Propellerheads comes out with Reason 6 which is basically Reason 5 + Record wrapped into one package with a couple of added units. The crossover from Reason 5 to Reason 6 was easy, installation was a breeze. I did have a little issue using the dongle (was mainly user error)

The application is really crowded,I hated this with record and don't feel as if i will ever get use to it in reason 6. So for me personally this is not an easy application to navigate compared to other versions of reason

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I've been using Reason 6 since beta and it's been a stable application, I've run into no compatibility issues nor performance issues. The app still is CPU friendly, this is the only reason(no pun intended) that I've been a die had fan for as long as I have. It's the core of my production studio and sound designer rig. The application reads external controllers easily and if you can't seem find you controller you can also add it in as a generic controller (like in previous versions)

OVERALL OPINION

Reason 6 sounds excellent (if you're excellent) see Reason has always been one of those software applications where it's quality is strictly determined by the user. The only thing I like about this new version is the new mixer that has been included (from record) what I had is they screwed up the simplicity of the software making it cluttered (like record is) that really upsets me. I like things to flow easily when I'm creating.

What I love most is that I only had to spend $1.00 for my upgrade. I think if I had to come out of pocket $130.00 (considering I already have reason and record) propellerheads would have lost a very valuable customer.

The sequencer almost perfect

Reason Studios Reason 6Published on 10/07/11 at 07:58
As usual with ProppellerHead the installation is done in one click, the manual is clear and also in French (1088 pages).

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Although the more complete interface demands a bit more from a CPU, Reason 6 is a model of stability and resource management processor.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using it?
Since September 30, 2011.

What is so special that you like most and least?

Management + audio tracks (it was about time)
+ The mixer based on a SSL console.
+ The quality of the new effects very creative
+ The interface, with F5 F6 F7 can quickly access what you want.
+ The quality of TimeStrech
+ The quality of guitar and bass amps

- To set the tempo to a track you must go through several stages, or Ableton Live .
- The non integration of software Recycle
- It's for when the out midi?
- The pianos are average. (I use Pianoteq 3)

Conclusion
Despite some flaws mentioned above. Reason 6 is for a band / amateur musician, the most complete software that sounds good with effects of very high quality.
Moreover, Reason has a big community online and many tutorials are available on the web.
