For all I know, the data could be floating-point now. It wouldn't have been floating-point when Reason was first introduced, but who knows what's going on in the innards of the system?
In computers, -1 to +1 will be expressed in floating point internally, and I would guess that CVs in Reason would have a 32 bit internal 'resolution'. :-)
