I want to hear people extol the virtues of Reason right now. They are one of the grandaddys of virtual instrument scene.

If you don't like it, don't use it. No one cares.

I'm seriously thinking about abandoning Reason for NI.
I'm discovering the functionality that I need in Cubase.

Reason is still killer if it fits your taste, what other DAW are you considering and why?

is this a zen koan?
To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.

People put way too much faith in reason. Humans are not capable of pure rational thought, much as they aren't capable of seeing the world as it really is. 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.

I've noticed that our governments quit using reason a long time ago. I would very much like it if they found a reason to use reason again.

It really depends on your style of music.

I had to move on from it a few years ago. The kind of electronic music I wanted to do couldn't really be done with Reason.. and I didn't want to deal with re-wire'g into another host.

So, with Studio One and Komplete.. I can get the basics that I used to get from Reason alone done.. plus I have the advanced sample library options I needed with Kontakt, and all the advantages of a world of VST options.

And I hate that freaking dongle.. wtf were they thinking?!..

When you can take the cable from my hand, it will be time for you to leave...
