More Reason Hardware
I know you guys aren't a hardware company and I have no idea whether balance has been successful or not but I'd personally like to see more hardware offerings from Reason. It's a shame that Nektar beat propellerhead to the punch on their device but I'm glad they stepped in and filled that huge need for reason users. Balance is ok, but reason could use a Balance Pro - with more ins and outputs. And I can think of lots more areas where it would be cool to have some reason hardware. Can anyone think of anything else?

I still think if they came out with their own control surface it'd be a hit, despite panorama's success.

I'd love to see a dedicated mixer control surface for Reason. The Nektar is a good start, but I'd like a control surface with lots of faders so I can mix without a mouse!

I'd like to see an MPC style controller for Reason, even though I've never used an MPC :)

- Track selection, record arm and muting of the first 16 sequencer tracks from the pads
- 16 step Redrum programming from the pads, 17-32 on layer 2
- Pattern selection from the pads (two sets of 16 would take care of Redrum and Matrix future successors)
- Using pads to focus on Kong drums for editing and sampling

The MPD is good but the Remote map was obviously put together by someone at Akai who doesn't actually use Reason, which affects the usability of this thing. It would have been a lot better if it had been done by Nektar or Propellerhead.

Re-publish the Line 6 TonePort UX8 under the Propellerhead brand :) I very much like my Reason PC with this interface though it has a pretty long output latency.
