Mir gefaellt's
Paddie 20.03.2022
Per-Note Pitch statt Pitchbend haette ich noch nett gefunden, und Werte per Tastatur in Mixerknoepfe eingeben koennen waere deutlich einfacher handzuhaben.

Was ich gut finde: Mir begegnen keine Bugs bei Reason. In diversen schmoddergrauen anderen DAWs jagt ein Kaefer den anderen, aber in Reason funktioniert alles ein kleines bisschen altertuemlich und stabil. Perfekt.

The fun DAW
Long-term workstation keyboard victim 11.02.2024
As a long time Cubase/Nuendo user, I've always heard good things about how fun Reason is to use and finally decided to pick up a copy when it happened to be on sale.

Fun is exactly the right way to describe Reason. The interface is fun, the rack is fun, even the mixer is fun. Everything about the software is fun, and the included instruments are generally speaking of good quality as well.
It certainly pales in comparison to Cubase when it comes to features and the overall workflow, but at the same time as long as you approach it more like an instrument it doesn't really feel like it needs more stuff. Integrating the rack as a VST inside Cubase was also a great way to get some older projects moving forwards, so definitely a solid recommendation from me.

Reason 12 si conferma un software ben strutturato
Perez-andrea 24.01.2022
Da molti anni utilizzo Reason per comporre musiche e sonorizzazioni di vario genere. Ottimo per la musica elettronica ed il sound design, ma si spazia facilmente tra i generi musicali sia con la gestione di samples che componendo parti e suoni originali tramite gli appositi moduli.
Negli anni reason si è evoluto integrando moduli sonori ed effetti piuttosto completi; interessanti le funzioni di arpeggio e sviluppo cromatico per piano e synth. La gestione del mixer audio è profondamente migliorata permettendo un controllo più dettagliato del suono e della miscelazione, senza restare "indietro" rispetto ad altri software in commercio.
Utilizzo spesso Reason in accoppiata con Protools per realizzare basi o utilizzare i moduli sonori come estensione dei virtual instruments. Fino a qualche anno fa tramite il plugin rewire, era possibile far girare in sync entrambe le piattaforme, ora la funzione è stata sostituita dal plugin reason rack che permette di utilizzare tutti i moduli sonori e gli effetti di reason all'interno di protools ma, unica pecca a mio avviso, non è utilizzabile la edit window di reason come si poteva fare con le versioni fino alla 7.
In generale è un ottimo software.

Perfekt für die Einbindung in andere DAWs
Wellenstrom 13.11.2022
Vorweg: Ich nutze Reason nicht als DAW, sondern als Klanglieferant und Effektpool innerhalb einer anderen DAW (Studio One).
Die Synthesizer liefern alles, was gebraucht wird. Synthetische Bässe und Drumsounds werden seit einigen Monaten z.B. bei mir fast ausschließlich mit den Reason Synths gebaut.
Auch viele Effekte, wie Reverbs und exotisches Zeugs für Songs kommen direkt aus Reason.
Die Integration ist stabil und die Verwendung der Klangerzeuger und Effekte sind ressourcenschonend auf meinem Rechner.
Eine klare Kaufempfehlung für Leute, die vor allem Synths und Effekte suchen, die sich etwas abseits von den üblichen Verdächtigen bewegen und einen eigenen Klangcharakter aufweisen.
