The original SSL can do up to 32 busses (for creating sub-mixes), 8 fader groups, and has solo isolate. Reason can create unlimited busses (but it needs to be accomplished with fewer clicks), has no fader groups, and no solo isolate.
Don't get me started on edit groups, possibly even more important to me since unlike the other issues there is NO workaround for this. Try editing a bunch of drum tracks and you'll know what I'm talking about - can't be done. And crossfades on multiple tracks… I could go on, but if you want the full story check out my VERY detailed suggestion for a grand solution that even addresses things that aren't currently addressed by any other DAW:
(this post is so old it says this is a "Record" suggestion!) :-)
