Reason - Audio Software

Welcome to the era of Propellerheads Reason. They have done an exceptional job bring the studio recording and hardware process connections into one great package.
When I first heard about Reason I was working with Rebirth, which is a great synthesizer, but lacks some functionality to make anything outside of electronic feeling music. In early to mid 2003 they decided to take the requests of several users, and create plugins for this software. After a while, the plugins began becoming robust, but at the cost of processor speed it would bog down and crash frequently.
The engineers at Propellerhead are simply amazing and liken to the coders at bethesda or codemasters in the gaming community. They were not only able to create a better software with features that were beyond the standards of its age, they were also able to somehow figure out solutions to the processor/ram limitations during that time.
Now they have a clear idea of how to multi-thread with dualcore processors as well as streaming audio seamlessly without much delay or loss in quality. The greatest advancement is the post production. The sound quality once completed is breathtakingly similar to that of a multi-million dollar recording studio.
