To be honest, I never completely saw the problem of Reason not supporting VST plugins. When people buy a VST they accept that it doesn't run on its own, and that you need a DAW first, but when they talk about a completely opperational and independent program like Reason, they suddenly complain it doesn't support other stuff. Reason is a pretty complete and solid DAW in itself, that doesn't take up too much of your CPU. You get exactly what you pay for, without needing to buy any additional software. Changing Reason so it will support VSTs will likely make it slower and less comprehensible. Sure there are nice VSTs. If you like to use them, simply use a different DAw that, does support VSTs. Plenty of those. If you like Reason as well, you can buy that too on top of what you already have, rewire it into your other DAW that supports VST and still get value for your money.

This is a good point.

But yeah, I'm still not convinced that Reason is better off without VST support. I can see Propellerhead's reasoning (pun entirely intended) after reading the threads and it makes a lot of sense, but for me, looking through all the free VSTs people like sorohanro post and considering all the amazing specialised VSTs out there that have incredible sounds, I'd lose sleep on the fact that I wouldn't be able to touch any of them had I chosen Reason as my DAW. The shortcomings of third-party plugin support don't really outweigh the limitless benefits, in my opinion. VSTs 4 lyfe.

Not everyone will agree though. In the end it boils down to whatever works best for you I guess.

My little brother makes gabber music, but I have no idea how he does it. His problem is that his productions are of really good quality, but he never finishes anything. This is one of his WIPs.

i program a snappy kick into microtonic, then i use lots of multiband distortion to get it punching at the right frequency. you could probably pull it off using parametric eq and blood overdrive. i use stuff like ohmicide and camelphat.

there's heaps of ways to make disgusting kicks

eehhhh so it's mainly (or probably better if) made through synthesis? it's more or less the same with using samples?

when it comes to gabber kicks i prefer to synthesize them, i don't think there is any other way to get the exaggerated sound i'm going for. it's not exactly what you'd call a classic gabber kick, but fuck we're living in the 21st century ;D

you could achieve the same thing maybe using the old favourite 909 kick drum samples, but putting an exaggerated pitch envelope on them. when i do my gabber kicks they tend to sweep through a good few octaves in the first 50-100ms before they settle on a fundamental

Well since I'm new(sort of) here, I guess it's appropriate that I post a "hello" in this thread.
