Hi all, and a merry Xmas! Sorry in advance, because I know similar topics will already exist, but I would prefer replies relating to my individual circumstances, if you can appreciate that.
I'm thinking about learning Ableton, solely for better sound quality for dubstep style productions. I've just reached a stage where I'm very comfortable with Reason and all those knobs and buttons aren't so daunting anymore, but my music still doesn't sound that 'massive' way. I don't particularly want to have to start from scratch with new software, but the more I read into it, the more I find people stating that Reason is inferior in terms of sound quality. I guess my main question is - Is it Reason, or is it me? I'm certainly no expert, but I wonder whether if I'd put all the time into Ableton rather than Reason, I would have achieved better results. In any case I'm prepared to do whatever I need to if I'm convinced it's the best course of action, even if I do love Reason, and I do.
I can't seem to find any productions made with Reason that sound the way I'd like to, other than perhaps this: ZMIX - Chemical Plant ZMiX - Chemical Plant Zone (Dubstep / Electro Remix) * Sonic 2 * - YouTube
This is my tune to give an example of the level I'm at with Reason: https://soundcloud.com/echo-gecko/harlot
And here are a few 'pro' tunes that demonstrate the sound production quality I'd love to achieve:
Borgore - Flex Borgore - Flex (Dubstep Mix) (Official Video) - YouTube
Skism - Experts SKisM - Experts (Official Video) - YouTube
Many, many thanks for reading!
