If you are going to bring SSL to the table at least be competitive. 3. Bring the SSL EQ and Buss comp to the rack as independent devices. 4. I would like to see Reason more engineer friendly by that I mean more believable in sound to it's analog counterpart. 5. Re-visit the channel compressors.......they are I hate to say....horrible IMO. 6. Put a mono switch on the master channel. 7. The option to select different pan laws for better mono translation. 8. Have quality control for the RE Dept. and be more selective about what kind of junk you are allowing to be put in the RE shop. I say this because I have tried just about every thing in the RE shop and IMO 90% of the RE's are absolute crap, almost like anyone and everyone that has the capabilities to create RE's has license to hurry up and put out some cheap ass BS. Now before all the vultures get ahold of this and try to pull me apart...just know that while my words at times can seem harsh, I have been a long time reason user and fan, and ...well this is the future suggestion forum after all. Oh and please propeller heads let's step it up to the professional level. When Record and Reason 6 came out it was all ..WOW and AHH....
but a few months later you start to realize that...well this really isn't professional at all when it comes to mixing (absolutely for music making I won't contest that) but not all of us are music makers and I think someone out there ought to pay attention to that. I DONT want to use a different D.A.W.! adapt reason to fit everyones needs not just the music makers!!!!!!! Wheew ok I'm done now. Cheers!!!!!!!!!
Just a few points.
I've seen a 4000G Console and found it to look exactly like the Desk in Reason, except in Reason there's no grouping buttons. And by exactly I mean everything. The colours, Master compressor faders etc. (Ok not the pan knobs...)
Why would you want to have Send faders instead of knobs? can you mock up how exactly you envision it? I haven't seen Send faders on any console I've seen (not ever so many).
I don't wanna argue with you, since you are entitled to have whatever opinion you desire, but talking about being professional, do you think a brush can be professional, or the guy the who wields it? Can a Hammer be more professional, than the one using it? Should it maybe be hammering on its own? Will a professional brush paint a picture on it's own?
As far as I've learned it, professional means paying your bills. And I'd love Reason to do that!
I'm just riding on the word here, because it doesn't actually reflect what I believe you're wanting to express, and I agree: Reason could seriously use grouping, MIDI out, and what not.
But there's people out there making 'professional' stuff with Reason (and yes that includes mixing and mastering).
So I don't want to tear you apart or anything, nor am I a vulture, but seven exclamation marks do not look professional either (as a matter of fact, Terry Pratchett says if one makes more than five exclamation marks on is to be considered crazy
