    Default Reason 5 Announced, Is Anyone Excited?

    Propellerhead have up on their site that Reason 5 is coming at the end of the summer, along with Record 1.5. Is anybody going to get excited about this? How many people are still Reason power users, or has the majority moved off to other DAWs?

    OK, but why? I dabble in Reason (I really like the "feel" of the racks and the visual feedback you get from everything, borderline cartoon but extremely powerful), but compared to Ableton 8 it just seems a little retro.

    If you not using Live, Reason is a GREAT plugin!

    I know I did it with Cubase!

    I have mates that still use it....

    maybe if they're planning on getting rid of the whole patching thing. it's just annoying at this point. plus it slows workflow down.

    Being able to run patch cables and configure it anyway you want is one of the stronger aspects of Reason, especially for some one coming from dealing with hardware after a number of years. If you have a basic understanding of signal flow then it shouldn't slow down your workflow at all, if anything it allows you to e more creative in how you route your audio and what you do with it.

    I used reason when it was 2 and 2.5.... the drum machine in there was always top notch! The sequencer, well that was a different story. But interested to see what they do with 5.

    Problem we found with it ...was that its Audio Engine sucked.

    So we just routed it to Cubase....and we were off!

    I'm sure that anybody that already uses Reason 5 will be very happy to see the new features. However, I can't help but feel that they're just too far behind the game. For instance their new Dr. Octo Rex Loop Player makes some great improvements, but is really just adding stuff that you could do in FLStudio or Ableton for years now.

    It's still the same paradigm, and I doubt the new version is going to make anyone switch from their current DAW.

    I really only use Reason for its synths. Re-Wire them into Logic and I am off.
    Would be interesting to see what the come up with to bring the program back onto the playing field with other DAWS.
