  1. You did hear it! It's not a coincidence and I'm really happy someone caught on!
  2. Which makes it even more funny though, Reason is quite likely one of the most pirated softwares too. Up until version 6 it was quite easy to do so too! For example, in Spain Reason sold very very few copies (we're talking two digits). Then ComputerMusic Spain did a special Reason issue. It was the best selling issue they've ever done with several thousand sold. You're right in that Kontakt works in all DAWs that support AU/VST though which is a big factor. I'm definitely not contesting that. Just want to point out that Reason isn't some kind of niche program for a small amount of people. But
  3. Just thought I'd jump in and poke at the "so few people using it". Reason was in fact the number two best selling music application in the US last year second to Avid's products. This year I think it's third after NI and Avid. It's very curious that people think Reason is not used much when it's with all certainty one of the most widespread music creation applications ever. Oh and I can back this up as I work at Propellerhead now so I've seen the annual MI Sales Track figures. But yeah, if you want to go for hyper realistic orchestra libraries there's not the same solid support in Reason. Top
  4. Glad to hear it, I'll let the devs know as I actually work there now.
  5. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGH, too much stuff going on! D:< Extend deadline for me only, plz?

  7. DEAR EVERYONE: I use only Reason and Record and swear by it. So much I actually got a job at Propellerhead. No other software is as utterly awesome to me and I've tried 'em all. What up :3
  8. The panning is VERY obviously a poke towards how production was made back then and I think it really works in this case. Great arrangement, terrific vocals. I'm ok with this! YES
  9. Keeping this vote short as most has been said. What keeps this from a YES is the repetition and some slight mixing oversights. Not quite there yet but closer than last time, keep it up! NO(resubmit)
  10. Gonna keep it snappy since this one's been here for quite a while. Great atmosphere and personalized arrangement. Mixing was a bit all over the place but overall it was okay. Loved the accordion thingie. The out-of-place chord rubbed me the wrong way but not so much it was a dealbreaker. Overall this JUST squeaks by for me. Good work YES(borderline)
  11. Gonna have to make this a quick vote. Piano-and-forwards really ruined it for me with the timing. A re-record or timing fix would be needed before I could pass this. The track sounds good though, even though there are some slight mixing fixes you can do (see Vig's vote) the big thing was the timing. Sorry! NO(resubmit)
  12. Definitely both good and bad qualities here. Arrangement is very cool, clever source usage and "cameos" as halc so eloquently put it. On the production side of things it wasn't as impressive though. The sounds were rather bland and stiffly sequenced, the guitars lacked clarity and the performance wasn't the best one. Since I've heard a few tracks with you, Brandon, that have slight timing issues that seem consistent.. have you checked the latency of your sound card and the buffer size? Make sure it isn't because of your set-up this is happening. Overall it's a good track but it needs some mor
  13. Sorry for taking so long, real life etc. I didn't think the balance issues were the biggest dealbreaker. The drums ARE mixed too loud and you pan your guitar leads very wide with not much of the cut-through frequencies which does make them slightly less the focus of attention. The big issue for me with the production was the lack of bass frequencies. You can hardly hear the bass and there's no punch in the low end to speak of, even in the kickdrum. Play this side-to-side to your favorite metal reckord and you'll see what I mean (I personally compared it to The Pot by Tool and some other track
