they are not really different. theres no big difference between making a new pattern and doing it the reason way. You are still gonna end up copying and pasting the shit for the most part. The only thing I don't like about reasons sequencer is that its a little harder to change notes and velocitys than in fl. I still need to learn alot in reason especially setting up my drums but I can lay down a composed beat quicker in reason and a sampled one in fl.
