I began with reason and have gotten some good results out of it but then I got cubase which really made reason's soundengine sound weak by comparison so I've started using reason less and less going for dedicated vsts. If your using reason I reccomend that you us it as a sound source into a sequencer that can use Vsti's and vst effects as this will help loose that 'reason' sound. I have now moved onto Ableton which is wicked! The midi implimentation really allows you to get your hands dirty if you've got a few controllers. You can really jam your tunes out after you've done some basic construction and midi mapping. Its sound engine sounds as good as cubase imo and its routing capabilities are excellent allowing endless capabilities.
What i'm using:
Sound Forge (Sample Maintainance and Mastering bits)
Ableton (All my sequencing)
Reason (ocassionally for sampling some of my old tunes)
Vst's (free vsts, trilogy, guru, stylus, bass station to name a few)
FX (Vst Fx Kaoss Pad2)
Controllers (Evolution UC-33, MK249c, Kaoss Pad2)
Sampler (MPC1000-Hooked up to ableton as audio and midi source)
Synths (Juno106, X-Station, Bass Station Rack -All borrowed hehe )
Ableton takes a bit to get your head round after using traditional seq's but they aint that different and it just clicks and makes sense after a few days.
P.S. no offence Reason hdz just my experience of it
Just looked at renoise it looks wicked! Tracker maddnessssss!
I want to learn Cubase or Logic though, I have mates that use them and the interfaces look really nice - plus I really wanna start using VSTs... then I'm not limited to just 2 synths which Reason has...
Reason 3 (I get great beats and pads out of this)
Ableton 5 (this is awesome for live shit)
Logic 7 (Host)
External (Korg microKORG, Alesis Ion)
Various VST (Absynth, Antares Kantos, Antares Filter)
Right now I'm testing out some lo-fi graintable synthesis type 'Destructo' vst instruments. Looking for a way to incorporate them into any tunes I'm working on.
but i really got sick of that process and now i just stay inside of reason for the sake of simplicity. i can make reason do what i want to do and the engine in reason 3 is best yet. people used to complain about it up through 2.5 but you can't fuck with 3.0 sound really.
i also make use of recycle and soundforge plenty
anyway i started off with impulse tracker about six years ago, just for fun.. then i got really into it and i'm using cubase sx2/logic express 7, wavelab/audacity and renoise mostly for dubstep purposes. i'm really into cycling 74 max/msp too but i don't really use it for dancefloor music.
How do people get along with eqing and compressing in reason, Having to go by what your ear is telling you all the time is a bit daunting in my opinion, how do you reason heads get on with it and do you have any tips??
