This got me curious so i am out looking up info on vintage sequencers. So far I found this.
How about digital sequencing in 1975 (fast forward to 5.50)?

BTW, did you know a new Kraftwerk tribute band is performing live with certain software on their laptops? It stands to Reason.

The true quality of reason in my opinion is that everything just 'locks in' perfect and the original devices work extremely well together,I can't really be arsed with the whole opened up 'rack extension' thing but reason is brilliant

That's not to say that reason doesn't have its place, just that its worth and the impact of its conclusions shouldn't be over-exaggerated.
Kant argue with that. Just read the Immanuel.

Only thing that comes to my mind is that Reason effects aren't the best out there but now, with the Rack Extensions we can change that issue too. Some say, we need this, we need that: but you rarely need anything else that Reason already does.
Today I asked myself a question, because I have used Reason for 10 years, the question was: Do I really use Reason to it's full potential? I quickly answred my question and the answer was: No, I don't use Reason even close to it's full potential. I have a Intel i7 3,4 Ghz and 16 GB Ram - I can go crazy with my projects, because my powerful PC allows me to do that.
All these years I have been making music with Reason, and proved myself that "Yes, I can archive this and that with the combinator" or "I can create this sound too with Reason after all" But every DAW needs some work - Reason isn't an exception.
Let me ask a question: When you've created an instrument, Do you tweak it a lot or are you in a hurry to make tomorrow's hit and you release half-baked music all of the time? I know I've been on this boat myself. But some days, when I launch Reason, I feel really good about it, - I feel that I'm able to do everything with it. The FSB effect library is huge and it has so many different sounding patches and lot of them sound Great! + I've made many effects myself. The thing is that, the raw and boring instruments wont do it. Usually every instrument needs some EQ or reverb, sometimes some modulation or compression . . . and it needs to sound right. To make it right, it needs your focused judgement and ears. If your motto would be like Adam Fielding has said: "It's right when it's right" and you'd be mixing that in your mind, you'd be doing a lot better music.
To sum it all up: Treat your instruments, Record perfect audio takes - mix like a Master - choose the right sounds, draw interesting midi arrangements, take down the flaws and you'll notice how big difference there is comapared when you're a lazy whining studio-rat!

Renoise is the most underrated...thing.
Every time there's a thread like this I think "what's the context". I mean, if you have a particular goal/workflow in mind, a tool may or may not work for you. But if your creativity is more open-ended, different tools can inspire different results. I find most things a lot easier to do in Live than Renoise, but Renoise inspires me to do something different. If I have the time/money I'd probably pick up Reason just for the change of scenery.
