Kennywtelejazz For the past few months I have been wondering + toying around with the Idea of possibly checking Reason out. I used to enjoy using SONAR with Rewire.nothing I currently use / have out side of SONAR is able to be a Slave. Every thing is a host.
The full Reason software package seems way out of my money range these days. I may be willing to give Essentials a try. Anyone here care to comment on their experiences for or against Essentials. Or should I just wait until I can swing the full program.
Thank you in advance KennyThere is a demo of Reason. Do that first. My short answer to your question would be no. Yes, Reaper, As was observed, everyone wants to be the Rewire host and nobody wanted to be the slave. This was a pissing contest between publishers, and there were no winners amongst the end point users like you or me. Good while back, Reaper added the ability to be a Rewire slave.
First to bow down to take a subservient role if some other DAW wanted to lead the charge, cock crowing on top of the dung hill thing, like the old Zen aphorism. Can sorta remember the reaction. Someone said that Reaper was bending like a willow to accept second tier status, but with this act of digital humility, increased its worth a thousand fold.
John Rewire allocations can be accessed thru a Rewire specific tab in the preferences. Do Sonar and slave Reaper for any audio/midi need. Except for the few glitches in Rewire that are going to manifest no matter what you are using, problem for the OP solved with a $60 license. Hi MachineClaw thanks for coming back and helping me out MachineClaw I have the full version of Reason so I am not sure about the exact details of the stripped down version of Essential.This is one of the things I hope to find out. MachineClaw If you look the comparison chart on Reason 9 vs Essential 9 you can see that there is a Midi Out/Midi Clock Out and it's included in Reason but not in Essential.Wow, thank you for pointing that out to me.that detail I had actually missed when I looked at the comparison chart. MachineClaw The file format I mentioned only because in Essential it appears that Essential projects are self contained, you cannot import Reason files.
You only use Refills in Essential in a limited way which are a big thing in the Reason world. I'm learning a lot from you I will confess publicly that I have no idea how Reason handles it file structure or what a Reason file is in the first place.I have never been around the program. MachineClaw Reason certainly can and does audio track recording well. Reason does not play well with others outside of the Reason sandbox.
It's getting better, every version gets better. Propellerhead disbanded their forums.
There used to be a lot of talk on their forums about midi, syncing to external hardware etc. They never addressed these concerns and haven't for the most part.Glad to hear it does audio.the rest you have mentioned in your paragraph explains a lot. I tried to find out what I could as a lurker on the Propellerhead forums.Nada is what I left with. I came running back to the SONAR forum, got on my knees and started kissing the Welcome mat We do have it pretty good here. MachineClaw If you want some good rack FX and synths and the use of samplers then Reason does that very well and there are a lot of REX and refills out there to play with. This can be rewired into a HOST DAW and used like a VST plugin synth sort of.
If you want simple straight forward audio recording Reason can do this and does it well. If you want midi and controlling external hardware boxes look elsewhere, it's not Reasons strong suit nor designed with that in mind.That part sounds good.is that only for the full version of Reason? MachineClaw I quite honestly only got Reason so I could do REX files and import them into Spectrasonics Stylus RMX that was my sole purpose. The Reason rack extensions and quick audio editing was a plus, the refills and the samplers that Reason has are really nice to use and the rewire functions into Sonar a huge plus.You have some VST's that are nice.I don't have those.the rewire thing has had me interested. MachineClaw I have and maintain Sonar as my main DAW, it's what I grew up on (still learning). Now I have ProTools 10/11, Cubase 8.5 Pro, FL Studio Professional, Ableton 9 Suite. ProTools I use and got because of an Eleven Rack hardware box that came with ProTools.
Like Protools but rarely use it. Cubase I got because I have a lot of old hardware boxes and Midi is important to me.
Cubase just handles midi better than other DAWs, so I use Cubase for that. FL Studio has one of the industries best piano roll input. It's just fast, works, and makes sense. A lot of the other functions of FL Studio do not make sense so I use it for inputting notes fast and laying out ideas in a piano roll style super fast. Ableton 9 Suite I got because Max is included and there are a ton of free Max devices that control or work with hardware midi devices. I don't like Ableton all that much but how it works with Max and the use of these wild free Max devices is incredible.+1 on SONAR Pro Tools and a current version of Cubase are not programs I own.
Cubase AL 5 is still on my i Mac.I thought it was good for a taster program.I can see myself going there I have demoed FL 12 (?) the $200 dollar version on both PC and Mac.I thought FL was very good. At the time, I was still new to X3 so having 2 programs, one I paid for the other I was demoing was more than I could handle as far as the learning curve went.having had a little time away from FL I can see myself going there Abelton Live 9 I have on both PC and Mac. Disclaimer I'm only running Live 9 intro version so I'm not to deep w the program as to what can be done in Live I do enjoy Live 9 a lot when I use it and I could certainly see myself going there with the full program.the cost of the upgrade has held me back. The 64 bit version of intro does not seem to want to play nice on my Win 10 machine at all. I have had decent results just running the 32 bit version of Live intro in Win 10. Since we have been talking about DAW's I may as well chime in with a couple that I do use for just about everything I do. SPLAT.Love it.still learning it.just went lifetime Samplitude Pro X 2.one of my absolute Faves.gets used for everything at one time or another regardless of where I started my song in.also use it as an audio editor and to dial in sections of my SONAR projects.
Logic 9 gets a fair amount of use. I may start here and port music over to SPlat.the same is true for sending over SPlat projects via stems.I'm real big on synergy. I'm still in the process of evaluating Reaper.I'm actually liking this so much more than I ever thought I would.
In the interest of keeping the Peace I will choose to hold my tongue. Harrison Mixbus 3.7 both PC and Mac.very stable on my computers I've had great luck using it. I use it once my song project is close to completion.
Project 5 V2.5.to this day I still prefer using P5 over SPlat when it comes time to go all Matrix View. I have a lot more DAW's that I can mention that I like using and messing around in. If I happened to mention all of those other DAW's I will only wind up convincing anyone who may be reading this that I am a Jack of all DAW's and a Master of None MachineClaw Sooooooooo why are you interested in Reason at all. What do you hope to get it to do in Rewire into Sonar? To what purpose do you need it?
$60 bucks is not a lot of cash, but if your throwing it away on something you wont use I would suggest you go to the table and roll the dice a few times, you may win but if you loss you'd be in the same situation.That is exactly what I'm here trying to find / figure out. A little back story. Right up until 3 years ago when I went over to 64 bit and X3 I had been on a 32 bit XP machine running SONAR 6 PE while rewiring Project 5 V 2.5.I was very happy with that set up and the workflow of the music I was creating.
It appears that nothing I have as my current DAW software is A Rewire slave on any of my machines other than Live intro which I have not been able to get working properly w SPlat when I ran Live as a 64 install. I'm looking for something to use as a Rewire Slave / program that I can get my head around to replace what I had with Project 5.combined with SONAR. Reason or possibly Reason Essentials seemed like it may be a good idea as a place to start.
After hearing what you have told me I may be wrong for 2 reasons.no pun intended lol I would have to spend the full 4 bills for the full version of Reason to get the compatibility I'm looking to gain. It seems that Essentials may be an interesting program to check out, but I won't be able to use it in the way I would want because the features I need aren't there or accessible in that version. For all intensive purposes it seems I'm right back to square one.lol I'm not looking to Rewire for the sake of Rewire.I'm looking to create a workflow environment that mimics what I had before using SONAR w P 5 VIA Rewire only in a more modern software and functionality environment. As we all know the SPlat part of the equation is modern.Yet, what do I end up using to replace P 5? It seems I keep going around in circles because my alternate software choices these days for P 5 seem to be the same usual suspects I have demoed or purchased light editions of.
It appears my current choices for doing what I want are bumping up my version of Abelton Live 9 intro to Standard. Then busting some a$$ to make sure that I can get it to work w SONAR in 64 bit. Giving the FL demo another try and using it as a rewire slave w the hopes I can wrap my head around the program.
Giving the Reason full demo a try and finding out if this would work for me.and if I can crest the learning curve Trying out all of the above as mentioned using Bitwig. MachineClaw, just so you know I honestly do appreciate all the effort you have put forth in helping me sort my questions out.I may have gotten a little wordy here in this post.but I don't want you to think that I'm ranting at you personally.I'm over here just stating what appears to be some of the issues I may have to solve. The use of online brevity of words is not one of my strong points. Thank you so much for all you have brought to my attention with your super helpful reply's to my questions.
All the best, Kenny. Kitekrazy1 kennywtelejazz For the past few months I have been wondering + toying around with the Idea of possibly checking Reason out.

Reason 10 Lite Download
JonD I also recently got Reason (version 8 full), and I'm having a ball with it. V8 runs all of the latest REs and frankly, there's not a lot of difference between v8 and 9 so I haven't felt the need to upgrade. I should mention that I bought it secondhand for $100 at KVR marketplace.
The full version offers a lot more than Essentials, without the limitations, so if you can find a similar deal, I strongly recommend you go for that instead.JonD, That's cool that your having a ball w the program always a welcome surprise when a music program can bring one there. Maybe I should take a look around to see what's out there used. Thank you for the suggestions. Fleer Didn't upgrade from 7 to 8 as not much was added.
Then again, I upgraded from 7 to 9 because of some really nice chords and patterns additions, on top of a new, sexy, dark GUI.Fleer, I'm Green with Envy. No I'm not I'm just saying that, it's just like the box of Cheez-it.I have to go out and get my own. Enjoy abacab Just get Reason Essentials for the sampler. This came up in a recent thread with Craig Anderton that was titled something like 'Sonar needs a sampler'. Then rewire RE to Sonar.abacab, Say, I remember reading that post in the 'Sonar needs a sampler' thread. Do I actually need to do all of that just to get a sampler?
What about Structure. Thanks, JohnKenn For what it's worth, Reaper was set up long ago to be either a rewire host or slave. If that's still the case, will make the recent time code improvements even more valuable.
Been awhile since I had the link setup, but Sonar and Reaper played quite nicely together and nothing was missing as far as midi and audio support. JohnJohnKenn, Yes I have been learning Reaper.I have seen it show up in SONAR as a Rewire. I haven't tried that yet.I'm more than super impressed with Reaper.love it, I'm probably gonna have to buy a Reaper license this week ( I'm more than a month overdue in the eval ) Here's what I'm looking to do w Rewire. I like taking 2 audio programs that are totally different like apples and oranges and bridging them together VIA rewire.
Back in the day when I was running SONAR 6 PE Rewired with P 5 both programs brought different things to the table. Now SONAR has much of the content that came with P 5.it is all pretty much there but it's a shlep to try to recreate a P 5 workflow in SONAR only because P 5 was much more streamlined and it had editing that SONAR still can't do. Example SONAR includes and will open ptn files, you can also modify them but you have to save them as midi files P5 can open both midi files and ptn files.the thing I like is you can save midi or ptn to ptn or midi. That might not seem like much, but the arp files in P 5 are ptn files SONAR also has these w out a way to save as other than midi. Back to the two programs VIA Rewire.Rewire' ing SONAR to Reaper would not bring a super lot to the table because Reaper already has pretty much full access to what comes in SONAR anyway.
Reason 10 Intro Download
If I was going to Rewire SONAR to Live, FL, Reason, Bitwig, or Acid Pro, then I would be able to use all the synths and sounds from these programs that are locked to the parent program in SONAR. Some of the instruments in Live are very cool, the only I can get them in SONAR is Rewire. Sorry to go on and on thanks. Abacab Reaper?Hey AIR Buddy Yes.
Thanks all, Kenny. Kennywtelejazz abacab Just get Reason Essentials for the sampler. This came up in a recent thread with Craig Anderton that was titled something like 'Sonar needs a sampler'.
Then rewire RE to Sonar.abacab, Say, I remember reading that post in the 'Sonar needs a sampler' thread. Do I actually need to do all of that just to get a sampler? What about Structure.
Thanks,Hey AIR buddy, I think that Structure is a fine sampler, if you are either cool with the factory library, or have already recorded your own samples as.wav files. Same with Transformer, if you already have samples in the bag you can do a lot with them.
I think the workflow thing that we are missing here is being able to record live samples and mangle them in real time. I watched this video on Reason Essentials and I think that this is the missing link Sample playback loaders vs.

Knowing the Difference Between a 10-K, 10-Q and an 8-KIf you want to become a serious investor, then you need to start reading SEC filings religiously. You should have a pile of 10-K's, 10-Q's and 8-K's sitting on your bedside table. You should have a stack of 10-Q's as your reading material in the bathroom. If you are stuck in traffic, you should be able to pop open your glove compartment and have a couple of 10-K's waiting for you to read.
They are THAT important if you want to become a successful investor over time.What are 10-K's, 10-Q's and 8-K's? They are the most common SEC filings that you will come across. More than likely, the companies that you are considering investing in file with the SEC. All but the smallest of companies are required to file with the SEC.Why are they important?Companies are forced to completely disclose pertinent information about their business and corporate structure to investors. How much are they paying the CEO? They have to say.
How much did they pay for the company that they acquired last year? They have to say. How much is the company spending on their lease?
They have to say. All of this information is contained within the company's SEC filings.Before we go on, let's explain what the 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K are.10-Q - this is a company's quarterly report. As a general rule, the 10-Q is less detailed than the annual report. Companies are required to file their 10-Q within 35 days of the end of their quarter. The financial statements that are included in a quarterly report are generally unaudited.10-K - the annual report that is filed (yearly) by a company.
This is an extremely in-depth document that contains everything that you ever wanted to know about the company. Executive compensation.
Audited financial statements. Organization structure. Etc.8-K - a form that is filed by companies to inform their shareholders of 'unscheduled material events that are important to shareholders'. SEC is launching an investigation. The company announces a new business deal. Delisting notice. Shutting down a plant.
These are all material events that would require an 8-K to be filed. The 8-K is extremely common, and many companies will file a number of 8-K's throughout the course of a quarter.Now, why are these forms important?SEC filings deliver the pure information about a company, unblemished by brokerage analysis. You can find out everything that you ever wanted to know about a company, just by skimming through the pages of their quarterly or annual reports.
How much cash do they have on hand? How are their European operations progressing?
What kind of compensation package does the CEO of the company have? It's all in there.These are obviously all important questions.
You can't rely on analysts or the company itself to tell you what you need to know.SEC filings. Make money from them.Filed under:. Delete after effects cache.
