I have been working hard to get better sounds using just Reason, and the Trident A-Range is very helpful for bumping up the 3K to 5K area. Here is a song with my latest effects chain on a Les Paul, and below is the setup. But I still fully agree that it would be wonderful to have a great tube emulation INSIDE Reason. I still use Amplitube for full tube sounds (I record in Amplitube along with Reason, and paste the wav file into Reason), which are stronger and more dynamic than what is in this song.
