Reason 6 vs. Logic

Hi, newbie question (planning on putting together a new studio setup around Reason/Logic on a Mac): If Reason now has audio recording, do I even need Logic or any other recording software? Does Reason 6 have plugs for mixing? Does it have a good waveform editor? What is missing from Reason that I would still need protools or Logic etc? thanks.

Reason's answers to plugs is Rack Extensions. Here's where you can find what's available:

Not sure exactly what you're looking for when you say "plugs for mixing"...but...there are several effects devices built into reason and several rack extensions effects that are ideal for mixing.

Also, if you want to test drive Reason, the demo is a full version that lets you do everything EXCEPT: you cannot open saved files, you cannot export audio, and you cannot access rack extensions

You can get the demo here:

Once you purchase Reason, you can access the Rack Extensions - for each rack extension, you are allowed one 30-day free trial.

For 200 bucks Logic Pro is an excellent choice. Huge sound library and excellent pedal board effects.
I have been a Reason User from day one - rewiring the 2 daws together, if your computer is fast enough, is brilliant.

I use both, both are superb. But I tend to rewire Reason into Logic and use Logic as my main DAW for sequencing, mixing and mastering. Plus it has a massive set of plugins also. If you can get both, do!

thanks for the quick answers, I am astounded at how cheap Logic is. Sounds like both environments are great, but all the content/instruments make it worthwhile to have both.
