Reason gives me those tools.
If I want to write in music notation for video, Logic has the best notation implementation (besides Sibelius for proTools) and now Logic is only $200. So if you have different jobs, you should have different tools.
Hard to make a living as a landscaper with lawnmower but no leaf blower or weed whacker (see: using a "DAW" but not having Reason)
Of course, this is just me, but sometimes the right tool for the job looks like a toy. Doesn't mean you can't do WORK with it!
So I guess reason is the weed whacker of DAW's lol. I like reason but I'm starting to feel what the original post was stating, think about it, if you want your yard to look good but only could afford to have a weed whacker or a lawn mower which one would you get?
