I've been using Reason since 2003 and it's my favorite music creation tool of choice. New SDK for Rack Extensions released today and it's awesome. I have Logic, have used Reaper, and was a big Cubase fan long ago, but I've make music faster and easier in Reason. It won Computer Music's 2013 Music Software of the Year.

This is one of the strongest and most versatile applications I've ever used for creating music. I have yet to have one bomb after five years of usage and that is a rare thing for any software. There is so much depth in terms of the tools offered that I have been able to use this for everything from orchestral MRs to incidental music for stage musicals. This version only increases its usefulness and I am still trying to learn all of the newest additions to this software. The only complaint I would ever have is that this software has been expanded so much that it is almost a two-person job to use it to its fullest capability.

In the past I used both Ableton Live and Reason. But from 6.0 and most certainly with 6.5, the Propellorheads are after peoples money by offering additional synths and fxs. I always thought the power behind Reason is buy-one-package-doing-it-all. That is why it stood out against all other DAWs.

OK, the default package contains a lot of synths and fxs but I wouldnt be suprised the new strategy of Propellorheads is changing towards paying add-ons.

Not good.

You can buy third-party add-ons or sample content, if you want. There is nothing perfidious in doing that. Your supposition is unjustified and is speculation only.

Best all-in-studio DAW. Fantastic synths and fx. From 6.x the mixer can finally be opened in an separate window!

Doesn't show up as an available update when I use Reason 6.0.2 to check for updates. Is it a paid upgrade?

I finally bought it! I uses almost every demo of every point release. And always I returned to my beloved Live (Ableton). And I still use Live as my main sequencer/daw.

But v6 is very impressive and I now use it to sketch ideas on my Macbook Pro. The 'blocks' feature is really inspiring to use and makes pattern based music a joy.

Live is still the best but Reason6 is very good too.

Finally the sequence part has a separate window. Still a worthy daw with some great synths and effects. Perfect for laptop musicians.

But for me Live is the best of them all. ;)

No tiene que ver mi comentario con la aplicación sino con vuestra página de MacUpdate.
Desde hace tiempo veo que utilizáis el margen derecho de la página de descripción de las aplicaciones sólamente para la publicidad.
Es una pena. Anteriormente destacaba una captura de pantalla de una ventana de la aplicación, que era bastante útil.
Es sólo un apunte.
Creo que sois unas personas muy prácticas y alabo vuestro trabajo por la cuenta que a mi me trae.

Salud y suerte.

If it's a comment about the web site, why the three star rating for the application and why posting it here at the page for Reason?

I see no reason for what you've done ;)

Also new are several effect devices that can be inserted directly into instruments or onto tracks. 'Pulveriser' allows users to compress, distort, filter, and modulate their sounds, while "The Echo" creates, as its name suggests, a stereo echo with adjustable delay, feedback, color, and modulation. "Alligator" is a rhythmic texturing tool that makes it possible to add rhythm and accents to synth sounds and change percussion loops. Users can also get pitch-perfect vocals using the new "Neptune" pitch adjuster.
