    pretty straightforward...

    I use "lite" version of both that came with my MBox.

    Problem is that I use both for their sounds, and I do both Pop/rock/mainstream music (so, need good bass, piano, orchestra, strings, brass, etc.) and tripped out stuff (synth heavy stuff, loops, etc.)

    I also know that both do good versions of those sounds.

    Just wondering which one you guys prefer?

    Thanks for the opinions and the help!

    Apples and oranges, no? Not too up on SampleTank, but isn't it primarily a sampler? Reason can be a sampler, but it's also a hell of a powerful, versatile synthesizer, f/x processer, etc. and features fairly open architecture for folks who want to get deep under the hood and roll their own.

    As mixed metaphors go, this is truly classic! :)

    Sorta right on the apples and oranges thing. Sampletank is pretty much a sampler with a large sound bank. Few FX/EQ's, that's about it.

    True that Reason has more to offer.

    Use it yourself? Big fan?

    Reason!

    I think it's the one music software product that no computer should be without! With the new combinator in Reason 3.0, it's the coolest thing out there!
