  • Anyone here using Reason Studios?

    It looks like a very complete software with a wide repertoire of instruments and sounds. I downloaded their lite version and it's really nice software, also very compatible with other DAWs.

    I was searching the Internet for a music composer who uses this software to listen to his music, but in addition to this musician, which he uses for ambient or background music (he even recommends it in a post of his blog), all the others I found are popular music producers or DJs.

    However, the software has a lot of potentials to make any type of music.

    Is anyone here using it?

    I use Reason a lot and I like it. My general workflow is: choose a sound, hit record and play along, then add effects, render to audio, apply Paulstretch, add effects again ... and so on. For my perspective the DAW doesn't matter that much. I also use Bitwig and I like it. Maybe VCV is a different kind of beast (no tracks, no timeline, no built-in mixer but tons of free stuff).

        For financial reasons, I'm still using Reason 5, but even at that, it's a pretty awesome DAW- the only problem I have with it is that you can't use plug-ins with it- it's all proprietary and completely self-contained.. but there is a staggering array of tools included in the DAW that make it still well worth the trouble of using it.

          I didn't expect people using it around here, that's good. The truth is that it's a very complete software and I am thinking of saving to buy the latest version.

          As far as I found out, Reason 5 also has almost the same amount of instruments and sounds from the latest versions. The only difference is what you said, and it can't be used as a plugin for use in other DAWs. But you can make a lot of ambient music just with that version.

          Thanks for your comments!

            If you want to hear some examples of artists on here who make great use of Reason, you should check out the work of Ivan Black.

            His latest here is:
