Yes, it seems that you can go a long way with this stand-alone
music station software. It is much more flexible than Rebirth, you can load
your own sounds and there is very little you cannot do.
If you liked rebirth because of it's simplicity and fun to use, you probably
love reason too. It's a "must have tried" software for electronic
and dance producers and a nice experience for all other computer musicians.
The basic idea was to emulate all the Synthesizer and Sampler a
recording studio has in its racks by software alone. It seems that this
was just the beginning.
Now this software has long passed this point and implements features
you cannot find in a standard synth-rack. Especially the way to handle
loops and what you can do with it is amazing and very inspiring.
There's one last thing I have to say about "Propellerhead Software".
They don't release it before it works great. That saves you a lot of troubles
and gives you kind of security-feeling.
It doesn't matter what kind of music-hacker you are, try it anyway.

- Built-in database
- Stable performance
- Good sound
- Good sound library
- Some additional tracks to record vocals would make it perfect (Please
dear Propellerheads, I know this is somehow against the idea of this
software but I often had a good song and just needed some
additional vocals. To change to another program is always a pain so maybe
you consider implementing this in the future :-)
