Where do you guys go for your piano sheets/music tabs? It always seems like nobody has what I want. Im looking for Terras theme from FF6 but I keep finding versions where the creator decided to fuck with the introduction or missed some notes. Im looking for a legit version, terras theme. Someone has to have the tab, but the bastards just dont feel like sharing.

Or you simply dual-boot for different tasks?

Yeah, I've been running Ubuntu for about a year now, and Kubuntu for a while before that. But I still dual-boot with Windows because I'm so used to running FL Studio for music, and for running various other programs that will only run on Windows. And I haven't really found anything that I liked for DAWs for Linux anyway.

I sometimes make that mistake too. It's a weird place. Then I go over to the programming forum and it's just another guy who didn't see the note about actionscript questions going in the flash forum, and another guy who doesn't get that php runs on the server and javascript on the client.

I've been debating downloading something of the sort if for no other reason but to test out changes before I put them on my live site... suppose it'd help me learn what I can and can't do as well... But first, I need to find a better FTP Client... Filezilla is refusing to let me download my site so I can work on it offline... Disconnect after disconnect after disconnect after disconnect.

I like the spectrum analyzer window, with the new equalizer. Wasn't a fan of the previous one. Have to see how much better this one works in practice, but it already looks like you have more control. I also like the midi out support. Wonder how well it works with my hardware. Should upgrade.

Did you really expect them to? I mean I think Rack Extensions are the closest thing we're going to get. Personally, the whole VST support never really bothers me. If I want to use them I just pull up Live and rewire.

Yeah this is why reason is totally not the DAW for me. I cannot imagine making music without my VSTs. Reason's racks may be great, but if Reason doesn't give me the ability to hop on the Internet and download an awesome free VST or fork out some money for something as incredible as Omnisphere or East/West, without buying yet another DAW and rewiring, then yeah I'll steer clear and stick to FL.

But that's just me. I'm the type who likes getting new sounds, editing them a little and using them more than making my own with the plugins offered to me. While I love the idea of making my own, I'm not very good at it and having an orchestral background I'm more used to just browsing through a bigass library and picking the sounds I want. And no matter how big Reason's libraries are, I'm sure I'll always feel the need to expand to new VSTs.

What's the big deal with adding VST support anyway? I know it must be easier said than done but frankly it really limits Reason and if anyone else out there is like me, it must put other people off buying it :(.

It's not that they haven't come around to it, they have actively chosen not to support it. One of their employees has written a thorough explanation of their reasoning:

Part 1
Part 2

IMO that is rock solid. If you don't like it you can use a different DAW, which you already do.

I didn't mean to say I'd be against it, but I think the limiting nature of it helps me really focus on the music I'm making. I know all the tools in Reason's rack almost in and out, and I can create what I hear in my head no problem. I have a workflow that's very different from when I use Live, Logic, or Pro Tools. It's all nice and contained which makes it easy to share from computer to computer as well.

I don't mean to come off as Reason is the end all DAW or something radical like that, but I think it has it's place just like FL and Live and whatever else does too. Each DAW has different strengths and weaknesses, it's all about which works for you.

Gonna check out that article Buoy posted too, haven't read it.

forgot the last part, also it's a bit outdated since what they call Record got adapted into the next version of Reason and they have added more expandability since

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.
