my main soft synth engine from 2011-2017, we did the first two Foxes Have Holes albums with version 5, as well as some elements of the PSB record. I'm personally a huge fan of the Maelstrom, while Jacob favors the Thor, and we made great use of the NN-XT and NN-19 samplers.
Made my first music with Reason in about a year or so before changing to Ableton live. i loved the individuality it had, BUT it had some problems back then with cutting midi and stuff. I know it've gone much better now, but i dont dare change DAW now :)
I recently switched from FL Studio to Reason, and I'm so glad I did. While I don't think FL Studio is bad, this DAW is amazing. Great synths, great workflow, and amazing effects, Overall a great DAW.
Not really interested in getting the upgrades when they come out. I have mega refills, mainly free ones i found online. I also can import wav files. I also use Fl Studio and Maschine, so sounds arent a problem. I dont use this as much as i use to. I started using Fruity Loops, and for some reason i always go back to it. But having maschine i use reason and fl studio less.
