Reason 3.0 ultimate wishlist...

Reason 3.0 should be titled Redesign
Here's my wishlist, give your opinion if you agree or not.

1. An audio recording device, or build one strictly for reason to work through rewire.
2. add more presets for effect devices, especially for the compressor / limiter. in which you can choose from a variety of presets to master your tracks. and to fatten sounds which is much needed in reason.
3. there should be 5.1 surround sound panning to get that overall mix that you would want in your music. i dream of achieving rolling drums in the background just using reason without going to a studio. this is a great feature you can use it in Acid Pro 4.0
4. you should be able to export Mp3's
5. the Dr. Rex player should be upgraded as the NN-19 was upgraded to the NN-XT. where all the full functioning capabilities that are in Recycle could be used in the Dr. Rex player.
6. and reason 3.0 should come bundle with more sounds. i get tired of these sorry sample cd's full of drum kits i have enough already. offer something interesting like the strings refill cd did. like the bassoon, satire, kalimbas, west indian vibes, carribean, calypso, latin, hawaiian sounds. and have an ample amount of Rex loops, because the Dr. Rex player was left out in the last upgrade you know.
7. and there should be a meter to see decibel levels.

but these ideas were not listed in any order at all so post your opinions. peace!!

forget about it!

first...there will be no audiorecording device...never! and why should there be when its a sample based program AND when you can rewire it to CUBASE.

there are so many sample cds out there just go and get the interested sounds you want. why only sit on your ass waiting for props to handle the sounds to you.

well...

Re: forget about $hit!

:::it WOULD be cool to record directly into reason, because my damn PC has a problem running rewirestuff for some reason...it would be convienent to have the sequencer play and record other external insturments midi or not! -[+_+]--
and reason3 should have a time strech thing for samples, (the NI one rocks) -_-/
and also a turntable style tweaker for high quality scratching on samples = __=
and props should make ReMix666 or something to mix reason songs and mp3's n stuff..... =[^_^]=

:well...

you say why should there be? " lol " just think if there are hundreds of thousands of people asking for it, then that is a good enough reason.

as for the sample cd's i have Reason Strings Refill, The Funkmaster Series, Synthotica, Retronica, Uptown Breaks, and Creative Essentials. i also tried out some others that my friends have, and none have come close to the Reason Strings Refill in my opinion.

now just cuz you love to use Cubase doesn't mean everyone else should use it you know. it's the simplicity of reason why propellerheads have this huge following. and if they would not offer a new recording device within the reason rack, then why wouldn't they not build one that is very simple yet very powerful like reason to work through rewire. and you know what? it could be the best recording software on the planet and even surpass your truly beloved Cubase.

now with the idea of an improved Dr. Rex player that i mentioned could be an option for those that have recycle already. or it could be sold seperately, and then opened in reason to show up in the rack. hey man there are many options to make reason the greatest software out there. to just keep things the same will have propellerheads left behind, just ask the guys over at Cakewalk. and so it seems that they have learned a valuable lesson, just check out their new program that's coming out.

Re: Reason 3.0 ultimate wishlist...

:Here's my wishlist, give your opinion if you agree or not.
:
:1. An audio recording device, or build one strictly for reason to work through rewire.

Already been commented on numerous times...


:2. add more presets for effect devices, especially for the compressor / limiter. in which you can choose from a variety of presets to master your tracks. and to fatten sounds which is much needed in reason.

How about a new compressor? Like the one in T-Racks maybe? Not gonna happen though...


:3. there should be 5.1 surround sound panning to get that overall mix that you would want in your music. i dream of achieving rolling drums in the background just using reason without going to a studio. this is a great feature you can use it in Acid Pro 4.0

Get a 5.1 capable soundcard. Under the Audio options window, selcect "number of outputs to use" (or whatever the text is...) and choose something other than Front Left/Right. In my case I have FL/FR, RL/RR and C/LFE. The output device in the Reason rack should now have 4 or 6 lights on, instead of the usual 2. Now create mixers for each pair of outputs and play away...

:4. you should be able to export Mp3's

and then props would have to pay copyright to fruenhofer (spelling?) institue for the use of the technology...which would push the price up.


:5. the Dr. Rex player should be upgraded as the NN-19 was upgraded to the NN-XT. where all the full functioning capabilities that are in Recycle could be used in the Dr. Rex player.

Surely props would be shooting themselves in the foot if they released a Reason device that did the same as Recycle?

:6. and reason 3.0 should come bundle with more sounds. i get tired of these sorry sample cd's full of drum kits i have enough already. offer something interesting like the strings refill cd did. like the bassoon, satire, kalimbas, west indian vibes, carribean, calypso, latin, hawaiian sounds. and have an ample amount of Rex loops, because the Dr. Rex player was left out in the last upgrade you know.

Sample-wise, the soundfont support for the NNXT is fantastic. Look on the web for free soundfont sites and you're bound to find something you like. Check out Doru's refills too.

:7. and there should be a meter to see decibel levels.

Could be useful. All it would need is a small number next to each of the existing meters, shouldn't be too difficult to do.

and now for some more suggestions...

8. An analogue (mono)synth in the style of the Model-E or SE1-X: something to rival the best *sounding* VSTis. So more oscillators (phat...), and less frills (bye bye Fliter 2 and mod env). Just something really basic and great sounding (like a telecaster of the synth world)

9. A dedicated LFO unit, with more than one output and an "invert phase" function: instead of creating subtractor after subtractor just to generate the lfos.

10. Better effects? If it pushes the CPU efficiency up too much, then don't bother, but a reverb unit with some form of pre-delay, time valued tail length (instead of a value between 0-127) etc.

11. Tempo automation with its own sequencer track. You could have the delay unit match the tempo track or run on it's own pre-determined tempo

12. Cable splitters: think this is being worked on...

13. An auto-chord device, for those early 90s house/rave tunes (see Orbital)

14. Arpeggiation or am I just being lazy?

15. The moon on a stick.

okay, so it's a lot to hope for and none of it will happen, but unless we ask we don't get....

Re: Reason 3.0 ultimate wishlist...

My whish list is quite simple. A midi out for all those people out there who spent hard earned cash to get hardware synths etc, audio inputs to record the hardware..... instead of using lots of the Parametric EQ effects sort the desk EQ's out turn those into a three/four pot parametric EQ.....graphics to small ?there's an easy way round that. I think it would make it more fun using the desk for EQ'ing/finale mixing. One last thing a timer on the sequencer bar so you can see how many minutes your tune is going on for.

Re: Reason 3.0 ultimate wishlist...

Oh, I just have two thousand things I'd like to see in Reason 3.0... Some of them:

* Why not make ALL knobs recordable?!? For instance, the NN-XT's Sample Start% and End% values should be recordable. And the pattern Resolution knob, why isn't it possible to record changes in resolution? I love playing the end of a series of bars in for example 1/8T and then switch back to 1/16.

* Put in a multiband compressor or equip the filter unit with a High Pass mode as well so that it's possible to make your own multiband compressor. (sometimes I get the feeling they've left out these little things because they ran out of graphics space when designing the modules)

* Agree with binzy1 about midi out and timer.

* Expand the ReDrum: Make EQ's for every drumsound, make it possible to copy a row of drumsbeats (for example 16 steps) and paste them in anywhere so that you can easily expand your pattern to 64 without manually programming the first 16 steps four times.

* Make it possible to highlight in the sequencer a part of your song - lets say one bar - and then export that as a fully functional cut-up .rex2 file - could be very helpful in saving memory ; )

* Pleeeease, some sort of support for DX or VST plugin technology...

* An option to make a note recorded right before the end of a loop in the song continue at the start of the loop, so that chords and melodies don't get cut-off at the end when working on a looped part of a song.

* The possibility to add "chaos" into selected parts of a song - like randomise but it only affects predefined things such as velocity, timing of notes etc.

* The ability to save how cables are connected inside a machine when you save a patch - for example: The SubTractor modulation outputs to the SubTractor modulation inputs.

* Fix the distortion box, it doesn't behave right...or maybe my ears decieve me.

* Make the delay "true stereo", otherwise I love it's ability to pitch the sounds as you change the delay time. However, it crackles if you record fast changes in delaytime - that should be fixed.

That's some of the more acute things I'd like to see implemented... We'll see what happens. : )

My Wish List

Before I list my stuff off let me just say this, please don't reply back saying "Just use Rewire and some plug-ins fool." Reason is so intuitive for me that once I start getting into rewire and plug-ins I just get sick of the limitations in patching.

1. Beef up the effects. The reverb could use a little more power behind it, same with the comp. Phaser is good, but it would be cool if the actual phasing could be controled through a CV so you could make your own wave forms for it, instead of just having a sine wave.

2. Subtractor. Like all classic anoluge synths, Subtractor should have a vocoder. Push a button to activate it and have all the knobs and buttons on a fold down panel. Let's face it, Reason is aimed at the Dance music producer and a vocoder is a major tool to leave out.

3. Export mp3's. I end up emailing tracks for people to sing to on almost a daily basis. Often this means write something, render it as a wave, load up a converter, convert, email. Then I have to change something and start the whole prosess over again. Cutting out the middle man would save me quite a hassle.

4. On the back of the rack, the knobs that control how much a CV effects the unit, it would be really sweet if those could be automated. I know it seems like a little weird thing, but I've run into that limitation quite a bit.

5. Somehow be able in import your own waveforms into the wavetables of the Malstorm. To make more doable the shift knobs could be disabled for imported waveforms.

6. Real time clock. Kinda sick of sitting with a calculator when writing a song for a time dependent project.

7. Tempo Change. I don't think I need to justify this one.

8. Reverse Sample button on the Redrum

9. Another suprise that gives me tears of joy similar to Malstorm. Thank you so much Props.

Re: My Wish List

:Some of these wishes are kind of goofy. So here is my list of things that should be in Reason already but are curiously absent.

1. Tap tempo. Right?

2. Double-click in the tempo window to instantly attenuate tempo, instead of + or - your way to the goal.

3. Adding Ctrl and Alt to the remote keyboard mapping ability. Just like Logic does. Right?

4. Ability to import/export remote mapping to any project. How many of you have gone back to old tracks only to find it was made before you knew how to create some clever controls?

5. Newly created devices should already have previously created mapping applied to them, i.e. say I map all of my mutes to the number keys and the solos to the number keys + shift, why should I have to only be able to use one mixer with these keys mapped?

6. And I just thought of this one today. There should be some kind of bar/HUD that allows for easy access to multiple open Reason project, perhaps with some kind of indication of whether they are playing or not.

7. Last but not least, perhaps Props could do something about that finicky sequencer window not staying maximized just because you switch back to the rack. Am I the only one that this annoys? I doubt it.

8. Oops, one more. I would like to be able to map to every visible button in Reason INCLUDING THE TRANSPORT. Is it obvious that I am not a fan of using the mouse? Speeed speeed speeed!!!
