Patch selection, and the pop-up list.
Hi all. I just downloaded Reason 2.5 and I'm very happy with it, lots of fun hours coming up here.

One thing I would like to see change in Reason I remember from the days of Mac OS9, Opcode Vision, and the Opcode Galaxy patch editor/librarian.

You see kids, back in the day we had real hardware for each instrument :-), and Galaxy was clever software that managed our patch banks in the hardware's primitive memory. Galaxy could also ferret out the patch names.

When you went to record in the Vision sequencer, you picked an instrument, and then clicked on a pop-up list for the patch - and depending on the instrument dozens, or hundreds of patches would appear instantly! You could get to the sound you wanted really fast!

Remembering this, the patch access in Reason, a modal dialog box, can be quite time consuming and slow the creative flow.

I for one would very much like to see a pop-up list for patch selection in future versions of Reason.

Best regards,
