it is a far more fully featured sequencer in many ways than say Live or Bitwig that have no audio pitch correction whatsoever and only got 'comping' this year!
Sure, but it is also dramatically lacking in other regards...
no MIDI loop-recording, no slip-editing...
All down to the individual user I guess, that why there are so many DAWS.
Yes, of course... with MIDI loop-recording for instance it is like this:
if you are a keyboard-player, you either sometimes record MIDI, or you record it all as audio (which I mostly do, especially in Reason), then you are good
If you however record MIDI, there are three possibilites:
1) you play so well that always get it right with the first take
2) you don't but edit the hell out of your MIDI instead, but if you are more of a performer and less of a producer type of person, chances are you won't like that because it compromises the quality of your performance...
3) you need loop-recording
Since personally I fall into category number three, I usually record audio rather than MIDI, which is a bit tedious; or I stop, delete and re-record, which is tedious; or I use a Block to create several repeats of the section I want to record, which is tedious.
So if you are a keyboard-player of sorts, you are either a very good-player, or Reason is a bit of a pain in the arse...
the lack of real slip-editing? That's plain inexcuseable, but then again Sonar is even much much worse in that regard...
