    I've had it for about a week. Are there any good books or tutorials that step you through this software? I've heard lots of stuff done using it but it's not a real intuitive piece of software. Any suggestions?

    The Propellerheads website has a lot of tutorials and theres a independent forum called Reason Freaks that has some good info. I bought the Thomson book "Reason 3 Power" it comes with a DVD with some tutorials. Hang in there. It's a great program. The soft synths alone are worth the price.

    yup, the propheads website is a really great resource.
    as long as U have Ur software registered on the website there's also a lot of free stuff U can download to make Ur reason experience that much more pleasurable.
    i suppose that 'intuitive' is a relative term, but my experience tells me that if U are used to working w/ old skool sequencers and analog synths it's pretty straight forward.

    When I first got Reason I bought the Producing Music With Reason CD.
    It's a great tutorial and got me up to speed quickly and painlessly. I would certainly recommend it for anyone who may not find Reason intuitive.

    I have not used the Thompson Course books for Reason but the Thompson books I have used have been great so I would think they would be good too.

    And the site as mentioned also has good info...like the close up Reason section if you haven't been already...

    I have the Adapted version. Pretty cool stuff. Still can't manage to hook up some Dennis Chambers type drum loops and patterns. I might need to upgrade. I was also looking at FXpansion BFD as a possible loop/pattern source. I love how you can move the mics around. All the upgrades are pricy tho! :eek:

    It is pricey software. But for what you can do with it - it appears to be a bargain. I'd like to do some of the stuff David Crowder Band is doing with it. Anyone familiar with them? They use reason pretty heavily.

    love what the goatee man is doing w/ reason, and how he packages alot of the host files on his last CD's, so you can recreate them, but honestly, his peeps are only scratching the surface.

    think the gents/ladies in underworld, aphex twin, everything but the girl, beth orton, radiohead, paul oakenfeld, u-ziq, dj shadow, kid logic, kid koala use it to a whole other level. ;)
