    Fully agree with most of what is said here.
    Reason sound is actually saying I hear the sound of someone who didn't properly operate Reason.
    You can accomplish more or less the same things with other quality DAWs out there. You gotta know how.
    To me, Reason is a more natural way of sound design as it resembles more to stuff that communicates with me, stuff that I recognize, etc.
    Just take some looks at the youtubes in the 52 reason record tips and you'll start understanding a lot more to the instruments in Reason. As it says, they are instruments. Then with record being implemented in 6, it got that kick ass SSL resembling mixing console integrated and it became an even more powerful tool for sound synthesis/designing/whatever.
    I can't imagine that if you fully understand eq'ing, compression, effects, processing, how to operate that SSL like console and how to operate Reason with all it's possibilities, and a lot more, that you can't produce something that sounds decent.
    Do ppl watch the artist stories?

    There are some artists there who mainly do their stuff in Reason. Really big names. As if you hear some of those big names on the radio and go like "Yeah! That's definitely the Reason sound again..." .
    If they do, than I'm gonna aim at getting that Reason sound as they're doing a hell of a good job making some wicked sounding tunes!
    and like this.

    Ive been on Reason since ditching the MPC/Hardware workflow in 2007. Everyone assumes I use an MPC. The Reason "sound" is a ridiculous myth. It equates to poor mixing skills and people using the stock/factory sounds/soundbanks and not tweaking/mixing their music properly.

    Yawnnnn. This topic is so lame and beat to death... time to get back to making music.

    Flying Lotus used Reason up to Cosmogramma - I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain that "it sounds like Reason".

    ^^^ That right there is a perfect example.

    And there was also recently a 'Test Which Was Reason' thread on the Props forum made for a few of the 'claiments'....those who said 'I can pick any song made in Reason'. They ultimately failed badly. As was mentioned above, you can hear Reason made by someone who uses the stock patches and presets and doesn't know how to mix. So, these kinds of threads are ridiculous.

    I'd like to see one of those tests here on FP and see how many people can guess which one was made in Reason.

    I love Reason and have been using it for 7 years. I agree with one of the posts; it is what you put into it. Propellerhead is a very prestigious company and they know what they are doing. My production in Reason sounds really good. It has to do with the sound card as well, by the way. Honestly, Reason has one of the best and most realistic stock sound banks I have ever seen. What is better now is the Rack Extensions in Reason 6.5. They are INCREDIBLE! Go check out the new compressor, new limiter, new equalizer, and the new effects they have on their website. Impeccable.

    Same! I think its easier to tell FL then reason unless you really know what your doing like Lex Luger and Hit Boy.
