Reaper isn't a vsti, but can act as a rewire host or a rewire slave. This means you could slave Reaper to Ableton or FL Studio etc. Reason runs as a Rewire slave with all programs other than Record and Rebirth.
VST and VSTi (instrument) are a plugin format which most music recording applications support. Reason doesn't support VST or VSTi, and this has caused much dismay to users over the years.
Programs like FL Studio and Reaktor can be run in VSTi mode, which is great for users of multiple host programs (like FL and Live). Reason would suit working as a VSTi too, but Propellerheads don't seem to agree. The main advantage of running Reason as a VSTi is that we could simply load Reason into a sequencer channel like we do with other VST's, allowing us to forget the nightmare that Rewire ever existed!
Another great thing Propellerheads could
do is to release VST versions of all of Reasons rack devices, like the excellent Scream 4 distortion, the RV7000 reverb or the Malstrom synth.
