    not from personal experience:

    yes, but with all midi/digital audio sequencing programs there is a steep learning curve. i hear the sample window is annoying in that it as a bit small/cannot be resized. maybe there's a demo to try out?

    reason

    I use Reason and Sonar XL together via Rewire. you can also get refills that basically samples and patches that can be loaded into the NN19 and Subtractor modules. so you can expand your horizons outside of just dance music. this system works good, but you need to have a fast computer (1.4Mhz+) and lots of Ram (512) or you will run into latency issues

    Sonar

    Yeah I would recomend it. Rewire is a program that comes with Reason that allows you to sync Reason directly into Sonar. You can use Reason as additional instruments in Sonar. Its like being able to add a drum machine, a sampler , an Analog synth and effects into your Sonar Sequences. Sonar lets you take any Midi file and use your Reason devices to play the output, in addition to adding different instruments such as Dxi synths, Hardware Sequencers, and WAV data(ie recorded Bass, Guitar, or Vocals). I used to use Reason as a stand alone sequencer but getting Sonar has opened up a whole world of new possibilities as far as composing and editing. Check out the propellarheads web site for Rewire, using it is a no brainer since I did not have to do anything to set it up. When I installed Sonar, Reason was Automatically configured in the menu as a rewire device. Havent messed with it since and its been working fine.

    Reason is very good but only if you know what you are doing. The best audio software could be really sucky if you don't know its inside out, outside in.

    sorry, to answer your question .. reason is a good program to learn and make music, in my opinion. :)

    I just got my 2.5 upgrade the other day for free. Read on the site that if you bought 1.1 after March 30, 2002, then you are eligible for a free upgrade to 2.0, and then you can upgrade to 2.5 for free from the propellerheads website.
