That will never happen. So, you should just quit drinking "hopeful juice" right now and, put the money you save toward RadKeys.

I do not use blocks as Props intended - I use them as (a damn poor substitute for) markers.

When I think about it, it's incredible that we have 'Blocks' but no markers.
I also began to use reason blocks as markers . I've seen him do in this video and
it has been my ruin: D

People who dont like it, just havent figured it out yet. It really can work with every style of music in some way, as more than just a way to label stuff. =)

I don't actually edit the blocks, I just use them to mark where phrases start and end

what kind of method do use if you want to create linked repetitive midi clips (so if I change something inside one of them all of them should change itself the same way), as far as I know the only way for this is the block mode, or have I missed something obvious (ctrl+drag method creates independent clips, doesn't it)?

what kind of crazy person would want to get rid of Blocks? it's one of the best features of the sequencer when it comes to figuring out and manipulating song structure.

Nevermind that, I just hope the people that don't understand the value of Blocks can launch Reason 7 and comprehend it without hurting themselves!

I'll bite...

I see the block button. I understand its features. I don't use it.

As a person who records more audio than midi here, I feel it would dishonor the song if I were to loop a audio phrase throughout the song. That tends to dehumanize the tune. I like to play right through, and add/edit to that recording afterwards. I treat the whole song as a block. That's how I roll.

Still didn't vote. You don't pigeonhole me
Cookie I think you're tame.

I use both methods dependent upon what the project is. It's very handy, but I don't lock myself into just one form of working, it can stifle creativity.
