NN19 vs NNXT

I am new to Reason (got 2.0 just before 2.5 came out).

What is the fundamental difference between these 2 ?

If the NNXT can do everything and more that the NN19 does - doesn't it make the NN19 redundant ?

cheers

Re: NN19 vs NNXT

Well as you rightly point out XT does a whole lot more than the 19... couple of reasons for keeping the 19

1. compatibility with 'older' songs with the 19
2. all the knobs in the 19 can be automated, only the global controls in the XT can be automated
3. lots of people have said the 19 is easier for simple sample setups and is more CPU efficient...neither of which I am personally convinced about

so mostly I go with the XT

cheers.

I have some songs that would prove you wrong. The NN-XT gobbles up the CPU cycles as does the Malstrom depending on the sounds being used. The NN-19 is in some ways more versatile.

Hi!

I use the NN-19 mainly, because I use it for loading synthesizer waveforms that don't need to be layered. So the straighforward approach in the NN-19 is all I need. Also, as it's been pointed, every parameter can be automated. So, a lot of things that can be done in the NN-19 can be re-created in the NN-XT, though not exactly *everything*, plus there's the bonus for simplicity. I love that there are those two different samplers inside Reason's rack...

I'm playing with the orchestral strings in NN-19 and NN-XT right now and I actually think NN-19 sounds better in this department than NN-XT

Congratulations! You win the 2012 award for resurrecting the oldest, most irrelevant thread. To win this prestigious award in February is unheard of.
Your prize is in the post.

Grum.
