Well personally I hated it. The stock sounds and everthing lacked the warmth and quality I find in reason. The tools were meh.. The VST and VSTI feature is all it has on Reason. other then that in my eyes its for kids and techno lovers.lol I could care less if it gets "hated" on, just curious why it gets so much shit. and yea it's probly the name.

Yea I can see it as a good sampling tool and the sequencer is good. But Reason has the feel that certain users love. I mean having a rack like a real studio is fucking awesome and I've been in a real studio so I can say that its a great feel. The fact I am trying to steer from sampling due to the cost is why I will always find reason as my gun of choice.I'm not gonna try to convince you to use it or anything, I know it's all personal preference, but... sampling-wise it does not really lack anything. If you sample, you don't use stock sounds which I agree do suck balls, the piano roll, step editing and sequencing is just super fukin easy. The chopping is not limited either, you can manually chop, auto chop, chop by beat, half beat, quarter, etc. I'm not saying it's bad if you don't use it, im just saying it really isn't missing anything (if you sample a lot, I know reason is much better for stock synths because of the tweakage)
I concur. Shit the hiphop crowd is older now as well and I think thats a market in itself.All I can say is that the older I get the doper I get...he! he! I aint trying to blow my own horn sort of speak but I feel that I am just as relevant to hip hop as any of these youngsters out...You got artist from the old school still selling shows out overseas...artist like T La Rock for instance.
P Diddy was doing that shit way back.And for some reason lately I have been hearing heavy 80's influence in hiphop on the radio (which G said would be happening about 2 years ago I think) .

Also @ Arkitekt. Once you are familiar with reason and use shift while turning knobs, it has some very fine chopping ability. Im in the process of taking all my old Acid pro and reason combined tracks, and just putting and chopping the samples in reason. That way I get much greater control over swing and quantization of the samples with the rest of the music in reason. It took me many years to realise that the use of the shift key in reason while sampling and setting eq's is invaluable.
....I love discussing betweent Reason and FL, but we need to keep the thread on Topic.yea I played around with reason a many times, it just seems really fun. I'm most likely gonna get into it when I get a good interface and PT. FL is cool and it's really easy and powerful, but it gets boring after a while
I used to hate FL, I never got around to learning it. But it has been pointed out many times to me how powerful it actually is.yea I played around with reason a many times, it just seems really fun. I'm most likely gonna get into it when I get a good interface and PT. FL is cool and it's really easy and powerful, but it gets boring after a while
Yup. I'm not talking about speeding up Cutting Crew's "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight" and having Jay-Z rap over it about cash and yayo, either.
