This shit is real dope! I been working with Record and Reason beta test for 5.0 and 1.5 and it its a been great not have to use protools for 75 percent of the job…Want to get even better with it so i can eliminate pro tools completely……

I agree. Can’t wait to get rid of Mbox2 and get something dope. They are almost there, just a few more additions (groups in the main mixer, ability to slice samples in the program rather than using Recycle outside and few analyzing tools (Spectrum Analyzer in particular) and I wouldn’t need anything else.

Purp August 26, 2010 at 4:41 pm

you can set up The Vocoder to work as a spectrum analyzer,, just takes some routing, thats how I have my rack set up.

They are stepping forward with that Kong Drum Machine. Only thing missing is, like someone said, incorporate recycle into it and also,vst plug-ins. I might go get it, it looks dope! I just got my MPC 2000XL and it might get tossed aside so I can bring the MPD 24 back out.

Yeah the ability to chop in Reason and use VSTs and I would use reason exclusively!!! Oh yeah, and the same sound as the MPC 3000 and it would be the ultimate software!!!

Fabian Zazueta August 25, 2010 at 7:11 pm

You can sample straight into Reason 5.0…..You can sample like into 3 or 4 different devices!!! Yea i can see you tossing a mpc to the side if you gor Reason 5.0 and MPD 24….And Record is a beast as well…That Kong is like a MPC on steroids~!!!!

I WAS GONNA ORDER IT TODAY BUT I CHANGED MY MIND FOR NOW . I STARTED USING HARDWEAR MORE . REASON IS BETTER THAN FRUITY LOOPS TO ME FAR AS SYNTHS GO , SEQUENCER AND REDRUM ARE BOTH SOLID. BUT NOT AS WARM AND NATUAL SOUNDING TO ME ANYMORE
YEAH LOAD YOUR OWN SOUNDS I KNOW I DO THAT BUT STILL DON’T HAVE THE PUNCH OF AN MPC OR A ANALOGUE SYNTH . THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH TWEAKIN YOU CAN DO IF EVERYBODY HAS THE SAME PROGRAM BEFORE SHIT SOUNDS THE SAME. EVEN WITH HARDWEAR , THE TRITON WAS THE MOST RAPED , ROBBED , AND ABUSED KEYBOARD IN HISTORY. WITH HARDWEAR IF EVERYBODY JUMPS ON ONE THING YOU CAN GO AND GET SOMETHING RARE LIKE A NOVATION SUPERNOVA AND LET THEM KEEP USING THIER MOTIF’S. HARDWEAR AND PLAYING BLACK AND WHITE KEYS IS COMING BACK ! YA’LL CAN DEBATE THAT ALL YOU WAN’T TURNING A KNOB IS MORE REWARDING THEN CLICKING A MOUSE . YOU LEARN HOW THINGS ACTUALLY WORK AND YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER LESS COMPRESSED SOUND. BUT USING BOTH IS THE BEST OPTION THESE DAYS AND LOGIC ALLOW YOU TO COMBINE EVERYTHING . IM GONNA PUT A YOU TUBE VIDEO OUT ABOUT THIS SHIT ! I CAN USE LOGIC , REASON , AND ABLETON LIVE IF I WANT AT THE SAME TIME WITH MY HARDWEAR SHIT . YEAH GO THAT ROUTE :)

I haven’t tried it yet but it looks like you can bring samples into a number of modules (i.e., NN-XT, NN19, DocOcto Rex etc…) directly and then edit them there…it looks like the new DocRex provides some features that could be most easily used for “in-the-box” sample editing. Like I said though, I’ve only watched the videos so I can only guess…

Reply

Mr Hugo August 26, 2010 at 1:43 am

u can chop samples. i do it in Reason 4. u need Recycle to chop samples then load it in to the NN-XT or Dr Rex. thats what DJ Khalil does. but he makes his own samples :)

Using Recycle then importing into reason isn’t that tedious. In the end, Its still much faster than sampling on my mp.

Reply

Dj ILL One August 26, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Well I had a MPC 2000 which I don`t use anymore. But sampling on a MPC can be as tedious as using recycle and dumping into reason. The only difference to me is when you want to chop, MPC makes it easier to just chop and go, but in my opinion,it still can be tedious at times.

Once you have chopped a sample in Recycle and loaded it into Reason like 5 or 6 times it is totally un tedious….Its super fast and way….WAY easier than dealing with and mpc….trust me!!! And if its a MPC 2000 classic….forget about it!!!

Reply

Fabian Zazueta August 26, 2010 at 7:10 pm

Ohh Yeah and dont make the mistake thinking just becuase Propellerhead says you have a free upgrade to Record 1.5 that you dont have to actually BUY or upgrade to Reason 5.0…..They made it seem that if you have Reason 4.0 you can check out the new features of Record 1.5….CANT DO IT….tried it and dont recommend you do becuase you will have to eventually re install your Record 1.0…..Just a FYI

Reply

ClearBlue August 26, 2010 at 9:07 pm

We are spoiled by technology. Re-chopping a sample in recycle takes 2 minutes. You can keep reason open while you do it. Plus you can adjust start and end points of samples within the nnxt sampler right in Reason. Most of you just need to learn to use the program better. It does 99% of the stuff you complain that it doesn’t do. To the people who STILL complain about not being able to use VSTs please, please shut the f@ck up. Also the people who say you can’t get the same punch or sound outta reason that u can an mp, you obviously have no idea what you are doing an should quit producing. Reason and Record together can do infinitely more than any mpc could ever do so complaining it “cant get the sound” an mpc can makes u seem like an idiot.

Reply

D-Marz August 28, 2010 at 1:08 am

Ill give you a million dollars if you can get Reason hitting harder than a MPC 3000. Stop hatin!! Everybody has their own way of producing!! You gotta keep an open mind! Most of the top producers in the game today still use hardware as their main production piece simply because hardware gives you a GREAT sound…. Gimme a break, YOU should quit producing!!

Reply

ClearBlue August 31, 2010 at 8:48 pm

relax bro , you obviously completely misunderstood my comment. I know an MPC has amazing sound. All I was saying is that you can get just as good sound from Reason, if not better, because you can simply do much, much more than u can with an MPC. All hardware has software in it. Much less capable software than Reason.

software still sounds thin and people can tell the differece , dont think so , just turn the radio on and listen to some of these cheesy songs on the radio , i can tell the difference between a computer synth and a real keyboard , or between computer drums and asr / mpc drums .listen to those songs by new boys or pretty bow swag or the song ‘ i met her on face book ‘ all that shit was done on the computer with fruity loops . power by konye or BMF . and all that shit was done with hardwear. i love reason too but some things that are done too easily aren’t really done at all.

dj kahlil , 9th wonder they did thier thing . it sounded good . they sampled good but do we still remember the drums on the song. i still remeber black robs drums on the track whoa . i still dig reason though but i was having too much fun it took my mind off the hardwear.

Reply

Dj ILL One August 27, 2010 at 5:51 am

You can tell a difference because of the mixing and mastering. I hear you about the hardware,but the software in my opinion makes it easier to get out my ideas faster. I have been using different peices of hardware throughout the years,but I had to get rid of them because of lack of space for one,and realizing the revolution that has taken place. The difference is in the mix to me. If you get the right engineer on your projects,it`s really hard to tell the difference. I`ve been on MPC`s ASR-10`s,Motif`s,Yamaha dx-7,Rhodes electric pianos,etc. I just like the idea of having all these components at my disposal in one program. I would like a big studio to have all these in my possesion,but it`s not possible physically,but through programs like Reason, I can.

@ shan money I think that makes my point more valid. Look what he did , 9th wonder was using software (fruity loops) at first , now he uses the mpc .Basically when he started he didn’t have the money to use anything but a 99.00 program , once he got on he bought an mpc 2500. Reason don’t start at 99.00 bucks ,

If your a hip hop producer its in your best interest to know and own a mpc so that you understand sampling and that way whatever you use to make beats you will never have an excuse. Real hip hop sound was made off samples not live instruments. Its all about diggin to get some real hip hop and sure you can add an instrument but make it blend with the rest of your beat.

Reply

Kado Avant August 28, 2010 at 2:29 pm

I agree with the part where you say “know” a MPC; the MPC workflow is very fluid style for creating. Reason 5 is definitely a move towards this form of workflow with “Blocks” & “Live Sampling”.

There are a million and a half haters in this game , people will always argue over any and everything , everyone thinks there the best , everyone thinks they know it all , everyone thinks thier music is better than the next man , everyone has an opinion about gear . Its all dumb to me , but if you love music and creating music then you realize the bullshit that comes with it .These type of arguements started 400 years ago know what im saying. You don’t hear mettalica hating on the group corn , or madanna hating on lagy gaga , its only us . Music is the worst thing you can get into if your looking for a pat on the back if you will . If you are looking for self gratification among peers when it comes to music do yourself a favor go in your room lock the door and turn your computer off .Don’t come out until your music sounding like you got it right ya dig . Then play it for all your friends online and in the streets and guess what . They still gonna hate .Don’t believe me go back and read some of the comments about other producers who made it .You will never make anything everybody will love , if you think you can your a fool , but you can make a few bucks .

You know why? Because so many heads are stuck on the so-called “Rules”. In being creative,there are no rules. The only rule I knew in hip hop that should stick is “Don`t Bite” but all these “Puritist” make it thier job to tell everyone what hip hop is supposed to be like,sound like, look like and it`s getting sickkening to me. Do what you feel and then we will finally be as free as other genres.

Its a dumb arguement to me , software is easier to use , less expensive , and takes up less room . hardwear takes up more room, is definately more expensive , and is not as easy to learn in my opinion with 2 inch screens to view your project vs a flat panel dual computer monitor . the question is not about hardwear vs software . the question is are you open minded to advance with today’s technology or are you set in your ways and stuck in the 90′s and can’t get out ? driving a 67 mustang because your mom and dad had one back in the day brings back memories and is a beautiful thing , but sometimes im in the mood to have a little air conditioning and power steering , yeah the mustang might sound a little better and stronger but it economically better. moet was the drink back in the day but whats the difference between moet and grey goose both will still get you drunk lol i wonder is the new age unk rockers argueing over using a real drum set or using v drums no because i have went to some of there forums because they spend there time more creatively . they don’t say yo dude ! you made that song using v drums your a poser ! they say you dude that song sounded totally awsome , and those blacks are still bashing each other over what we did to them 400 years ago lol

And on top of that, it’s how the mixer decides to mix your stuff. You can add analog sound to ANYTHING man!!! It will always be about how you used what you had. That alone will make punchy bass lines and kicks out of Reason, FL Studio, or anything. Son you can never replace Pro Tools….don’t ever think about it!!! Do you have EQ’s, compressors, Waves bundles in Reason? Just cause the mixer looks like a SSL doesn’t mean you will get an SSL sound out of it. Reason is stepping it’s game up, but so is Avid with being able to now get the new MBox’s that work with ANY software. Logic is good for producers/musicians. If you like the sound you have, go for it. If not, then step up and do more research and reading on making better music…..not buying more gear that you will still have to learn how to use PROPERLY. The same way how you can freak an MPC, the same can be done to any software out there on the market. Tell me this, has every song made with an MPC been a #1 hit on the charts??? And if you don’t care about charts, then what about every big club, R&B, pop, whatever song with a dope sound to it??? I’ll wait……

And then agree with me that Sharooz SUCKS at sound design.

WTF was propellerhead thinking.?

They should have gotten Dico & Sirocco, or BanginBeats.com, or who ever created and designed the sounds for Sounds in HD.
cause those drums are a metric fuck ton better than the Bullshit Sharooz brought to the table, got paid for, and laughed about later.
