Version reviewed: 1.0.4 on Windows

Very usable. It would seem that there is a limited selection of piano sounds from this device that are rich and musical. I have found the combination and blend of piano types that I like and have layered it and run it through EQ to get the most realistic piano sound. If you are looking for really excellent piano, this may not be the first device you want to turn to. It does nicely for accent and backup piano.

Parsec 2

Version reviewed: 2.0.3 on Windows

Parsec is (potentially) very underrated. I genuinely enjoy the way sound design and patch building can be handled with Parsec. I personally like the appearance of the previous version, but it still has an enjoyable and simple UI. Parsec can make some extremely interesting and mysterious sounds. I readily give the five stars because of its strengths. REALLY good for sound fx, pads, poly, plucks. You may not be satisfied with how it handles leads and bass.

Reason 12

Version reviewed: 12 on Windows

I have been using Reason since it was just an instrument and effects suite so its pretty stunning to see how far its come at Reason 12. I knew it had added VST support a couple years back and was reluctant to dive back because I feared opening up to the VST world would destroy its stability. I was wrong. Reason is as stable as its ever been even using several of the VST's I use in Reaper and Studio One.

It's still an inspiring environment to worth within just like back in the day but so much more powerful now. Audio recording is a breeze and with the addition of the built in Pitch edit and timing tools it makes sound warping in Reason almost too easy. The built in devices are all still there but they've added a ton more over the years so I can get whatever sound is in my head nailed down very easily. I love being able to master within Reason using my Izotope Suite so I dont need to export stems out to Studio One for mastering purposes. I've tested out the Reason Rack plugin with Reaper and Studio One and it works like a charm if I needed to go out of the DAW itself but at this point I cant see needing to any longer. Everything can be done within the software on its own.

Just dropped Cubase for Reason 11 & i have no regrets its GREAT!!! The audio quality all the synths & effects are top notch. Was using Cubase for the last 10 years but just wanted a change. I've tried loads of DAW's from Logic to Pro Tools to Live, all good software but not for me. Reason rocks now!!.

Thanks UNCLE 22.

Reason 12

Version reviewed: 10.2 on Mac

I've used many different DAWs in the last 15 years or so, including Cubase, Pro Tools and in later years Studio One, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live.

A few months ago I sold my Ableton Live Suite and Cubase 9 license and purchased Reason 10.

Initially it was a lot to get used to. Reason works a little bit different than most other DAWs, but once you "get it", there's no going back to the restrictions of other DAWs compared to the incredible flexibility you get with Reason's rack based architecture.

Once you understand how CV patching and routing functions, a universe of possibilities opens up for unrestricted creative sound design.
I don't regret making the switch to Reason in any way.

Also, it runs almost as smoothly on my 11 year old iMac as it does on my new MacBook Pro, something that is quite unique compared to other DAWs I've used.

Version reviewed: 9.5 on Mac

I've used it since it first came out, total jawdropping experience back then giving me 9 ms of latency and hundreds of notes of polyphony running MacOS 9 on a PowerBook G3. Since then I've even worked at Propellerhead and I've lived with Reason for nearly 20 years now; I've also got Logic and more programs but I feel at home in Reason and it's got the same key commands as Cubase on Atari which I started out with.;-) I am still using Reason 9.5 but might update. Very good also that they still support MacOS 10.7 which means I can even use my 2007 Mac Pro 1,1 with it. Refill maker and remixer here.
