Reason 7

Waiting for Reason 7 has an end. Struggling with equalizers I was deeply grateful for the graphical view in the mixer's equalizer section. The first track I have tried to improve is bingbong loop. I also had re-recorded the Piper at the gates of yawn track, wich I love very much. I soloed the tracks of the Piper in Nanostudio and record them one by one with Reason. This gives me the opportunity to practice improving my mastering skill. The Piper is a very special piece of tumultuous sounds. To get this in control may be a good kind of practice at all... ;-) The revised Piper isn't released yet.

My first DAW was Ableton. But Ableton needs more knowledge and experience as I have and although I love it, it overwhelmed me many times. E.g. you have to build your own mastering section. And to all time you work with instruments and effects in Ableton you have to know about all parameters with all their dependencies. In Reason it is more like using an analog clock. You look on a device and you are guided through the interaction of all the knobs and sliders just by displaying their dependencies (not to mention the cable system). Thus I decided to use Reason instead of Ableton - for now...
