Fast, easy, and AWESOME!

Don't be fooled into thinking that because this isn't the "full" version of Reason that it doesn't pack a lot of awesome into one bundle. I've yet to scatch the surface of this program and I'm already blown away at how much there is at my fingertips. Fully functional sequencer, two synthesizers, drum machine, tons of effects... what more could you ask for at $69!? As usual, my sales guy at Sweetwater left me a voicemail within an hour of me placing my order, which included an e-mail with my product/license key and download instructions. Getting Reason Essentials up and running is simple. If you can use a computer, you can get RE downloaded and installed. And then the fun begins. I feel like a whole new level of creativity just opened up for me with this at my reach. Thanks again to Dave at Sweetwater for all you do! You guys ROCK!

Very Nice

When I bought this, I was going on I had played with it at a friends place and loved it. We where using his DAW, which happens to be the same as mine, so I did not realize it came with a DAW. Just on what it adds to my current software it was worth the money but I will have to look at the DAW and see what we have here!

I have been using Magic Music Studio for about 12 years. I have limited experience with this software thus far. Two issues contribute to that: 1. The program is powerful but not intuitive. I will have to go through the tutorials. 2. It requires a powerful PC. I have a Dell 540 Studio with dual quad core processors 2.33 gHz and 8 gb of memory. I plan to up the memory to 14gb, My graphics card seems to be stretched to its limits - a ATI Radeon HHD 3450.. I have updated the driver, but my computer crashes when I have heavy a heavy graphics page loaded. 3. Sweetwater has been excellent. I would give their service 5 stars+ Do not shy away fro purchasing this program. Just be sure that you have given your computer muscle. It recommends lat least 8 gb memory I would recommend more than 8 gb and a powerful graphics card. I may replace my card. I hope that this is a help to those contemplating purchasing this program.
