Unfortunately in the IT professionals/developers communities very few people ever heard of Reason. When asking, the classical response will be to jump to the usual English semantics of the common word 'reason'.
So I am coming to the source of 'trouble' :-)
Anyone around have some insights on this topic?
Having been around since the age of the Dinosaurs myself, I can attest - yes - Propellerhead were the first to incorporate such a design (as well as the virtual rack). Hitting "Tab" and seeing the back of the rack - cables and all - was their invention. Nothing else like it on the market at the time in any products that I know of.
In fact, I don't think there is anything out there like it now, is there?
