    Hi,
    I think you can't say which is bestter.
    Because Logic is a Sequencer with many more functions than Reason 2.Together they are great! You can use booth over ReWire, than you have the great sounds in Logic.

    Velocity - i agree.

    my recommendation would be to use both together. use reason to create the sounds. use logic to sequence and polish your mix.

    i make up loops in reason and import into Logic/Cubase,as to which is better its more a question of finance,Reason is self-contained and you can make trax without anything else,where as Logic is more Pro orientated and you,d need to hook it up to a midi module of some sort (unless you wanted to use Logics synths exclusively)

    The problem with reason is that there are limitations on the types of files & samples you can import into it... I'm a newbie with the program (so I could be wrong about this), but I can't seem to place guitar tracks into Reason, or bring in wav files etc...

    just sat down today to try and see about learning reason, and I have to say it is quality, although fruity loops is a superbly fun programme for playing with :)

    Sorry....... I will have to disagree with the majority of you.

    Reason 2.0 is for Pro's
    Fruity loops.......well the name tells it all
    Logic - it's very good and pro....however its time to move onto bigger and better things :)

    For anyone that owns and uses Reason 1.0 and now 2.0 well........you will have to discover the power of it yourself!!!

    Hint: Use dual monitors with Reason 2.0!!!

    Regarding not being able to import Guitar wav files........you gotta look harder than that champ on your digital sampler (its allows both .aiff and.wav)

    i learned on c-lab 15 yrs ago
    logic is good midi sequencer
    reason is a good sound module
    hopefu;lly reason 3 will recycle bundled and a good arpeggiator
    then it will kill.
    reason is probably more stable then logic on a windows pc.

    Hmm, i think that they're both good in they own way. But to combine the two of them is even better. Since Logic allows Direct X plugins to be used on the channels, creates an option that is not able to be done in Reason itself.

    Though the bad part of Reason is, that it cuts the high frequencies. And after rendering the .wav or the .aif you'd have to pump up the whole sound to get the real quality from the frequencies.

    reason is a whole virtual home studio with synths and samplers, logoc notator software ist "just" a sequencer.

    i work with both, but for sequencing i use logic. the reason seq. isn't very comfortable.
