Reason Essentials Questions

Hi everyone, just trying to learn a bit more before I buy!

I've been playing around with reason 6.5 on a friends set up for a bit and I love it, I'm looking at making loops (read backing tracks) to add synths, pads, specials etc etc behind a full band. I managed to make my first track and it was great fun, so I want to get in on all of this but can just about afford reason essentials and a controller.

- I really liked Thor in the full version, is there any way of getting it in essentials? And if not what happens if I open a project in essentials that uses it?

- if I'm using solely pre-recorded tracks live what is the best way to trigger them? Ideally I'd like to split each section into parts of the song, eg intro, verse 1, chorus etc etc, have them set up to run in one order then be able to trigger another chorus or whatever is needed on the fly. I know ableton live is good for this but I'm (a bit) familiar with reason and quite like it, plus don't really want to spend another £70 to buy ableton live intro!

What do you guys think?
