Summary: Incredible upgrade! So glad props merged Record into Reason. Never understood the logic behind a sister program instead of incorporation. The sound bank is hugely expanded, seems at a glance to be around twice the size. As far as new modules go, the Gator is invaluable and an incredible tool for expanding even further on the already impressive sound engine. Haven't really explored further..yet. Apples & oranges, but I really prefer the simplicity of writing in Reason.
Summary: This newest version is the best to date. Propellerhead finally merged Record into Reason, and added some new additions to the line-up that I have not yet even come close to exploring in depth. So far, I've only been lining-in some sounds so I can deconstruct them and play. But, if I had to compare it to something, I would say Logic, but better because you get so much more in the way of instrumentation, amp effects for guitar, different mixers, etc.
Summary: This is a great product for people who want to do a wide range of musical projects. Used by many of today's top producers and songwriters. With this piece of software you get the MOST bang for your buck.
Summary: I was thrilled with Reason 4, but I held off from upgrading to version 5, because most of the added features from 4 to 5 weren't worth it to me. Luckily, Propellerhead continues to let you upgrade your current registered version of Reason (all the way back to the first version) to the latest version. Hopefully they will maintain this policy.
Summary: I knew the product was ace. A Swedish musicprogramme cheaper through Amazon and UK than buying it in Sweden (where I live)...FANTASTIC programme especially if you make dancemusic or other electronic kind of music. Although I have to say that I would rather have paid more to get recorded mail. The postman left my parcel worth hundreds of pounds outside my door. Well, Thats not the sellers fault or problem.
Classy sounds; bit of a learning curve coming from other DAWs

Summary: The first thing to note about Reason is that it has a collection of high class instruments and sounds great. For instant gratification, the presets give a taste of the quality and range of sounds here and they make a great starting point for creating new sounds. I have been a user of other DAWs, recently Ableton Live and Reaper, and was tempted by Reason but apprehensive about the learning curve.
Summary: I've been with Reason since version 1 and this 64-bit beast is the one that puts it way ahead of its competitors (if it really has any). If you didn't have the now discontinued Record companion program before, prepare to be blown away. The long-awaited audio track recording options are only the start; the real star of the show is the virtual SSL mixing desk. It looks daunting at first, but take the time to learn it and soon you won't want to use anything else.
Summary: Misschien is Reason niet voor iedereen, het mist immers functies als VST en midi out, maar voor een snelle en creatieve workflow is Reason perfect. Het kabelsysteem heeft een heleboel creatieve mogelijkheden, de mixer is geweldig en nu Reason 6.5 uit is zijn er ook "Rack Extensions", een soort alternatief voor VSTs, die echt heel erg goed werken en Reason veel uitgebreider maken.
