I am preparing to leave reason as a DAW

Published: 5 months ago

This might need some explaining, and I personally do not want to start clickbaiting anyone. But here is the things, I have discovered parts on where it goes wrong with their CPU parts, and no one wants to listen to me.

So I am bailing this ship while it is sinking.

Honestly, this site is one that I always come back to so I can research and learn more about Reason as I progress in my production path. I hope you keep this up for us, those who wish to study and continue to learn from you and your great contributions. I thank you truly for your work and efforts and I hope to be able to come back here and see that the old lessons are still up for people like me. Once again thank you, and take care.

that was somehow a shocker, but then realised that this is what is ghappening to myself as well. I have no issues with multicore processors since mys system is not as sofisticated as yours, is simply the flexibility in Live by being able to rout signals across tracks (Midi from and audio from and to). I still struggle sometimes on the workflow, but this is a small price to pay I guess. sometimes I still use ProTools, which has been my DAW to go for a long time before Reason. Reason still takes a lot of my time and I'll be using it as a rewir instrument in Live, once I will be able to upgrade from my entry level licence to the standard one at least. Hope you'll keep doing some of your valueable tuts for Reason and looking forward for some content on Live as well. Good opportunities ahead :-)

PS: forgot to mention, as Komplete 11 owner, I rarely use RE anymore (other than Europa, Blamesoft and sometimes Exode). I have a few essential Waves plugins which serve their purpose as well. No big deal in terms of the army you can use and as said earlier by Composer, with the Reaktor user libray the sky is your limit

Hey Hydlide, At first I was like "Noooooooo, don't go!', but then you mentioned Ableton Live, which I use and have been using more for some of my songs in the last few years. I got it to DJ first about 10 years back, but it confused me for doing music.... Once I wrapped my head around the workflow, it has been great to use. The Clip View helps to make different variations and try them for a song. and I really like it..... I think their Arpeggiator tool is weak, and needs some tweaking or a new tool.... That being said, I would love to see you do for Ableton what you've done with Reason........ Also - I don't want all these great Reason resources to go away...... I hope you keep them somewhere, I as I really use them... Glad to hear you will finish your awesome CV series!!! Take care!

Hi Hydlide,

I was just watching this drama unfolding for a long time...
I´m using Reaktor additionally to Reason for already a couple of years by now and the Ensembles from the Reaktor-Community the user Libraries that burst from creativity and you can, of course, create your own modular ensembles using the graphical programming tools and all the modules blocks and so on.
I understood a long time ago that you cannot rely on a single software solution e.g. Reason = DAW and expect that they will possibly solve all the problems.
You need to be somehow independent, it´s about making music, not about spending all the time to figure out how could this or that work and why it still doesn´t work.
I have a limited time at my disposal, so if I´m in a creative flow I don´t want to deal with all of this USB driver that doesn´t work, sound card issues, O.S., DAW´s that don´t behave, react as expected, so I thought to my self, OK you have to deal with all this crap anyway, at least one thing you can do is try to minimize your time loss by using alternative DAWs and Hardware a.s.o..
So I use currently different DAWs and software solutions for different tasks or creative input.
For instance, I have Reaper before the time Reason couldn´t handle VSTs, Ableton Live but didn´t like the GUI and workflow, ACID Sony, even have Samplitude and Music Maker just to create some musical ideas a different approach is sometimes helpful to create new music. If you can handle everything more flexible is better, you are not bound just to the possibilities of one Software solution that never can do everything just a little bit of this and that.
Choose your toys wisely. Native Instruments is a professional and I think a very good choice.
Take care! Have a wonderful time during your endeavor.
