You and I see eye-to-eye on where we'd like to see Reason go. I primarily use Reason as a live keyboard tool and I love the layering. Players add so much potential but aren't quite there. I'd like to be able to do velocity layers as ramps (not abrupt shifts), keyrange splits that crossfade (see Omnisphere multis), and a big part of that requires cables for players to split, layer, isolate, merge, etc.
I've done some of this in Reaper with JS but the workflow is not as conducive to my creative process.
With all that said I'll be getting the 10 upgrade for Europa, Grain, and Radical Piano (still don't own it). I'm also hopeful for a 10.5 upgrade that gives us SDK enhancements. I'm still hopeful a third party company like Robotic Bean will make a killer Sampler to finally let me put NN-XT out to pasture. That's one device I've never gelled with.
Here's to hoping.
