    the shit is alright...thor isn't as amazing as i thought it would be, but i haven't programmed my own synths in it yet...maybe it'll shine in that aspect

    The sequencer looks more like FL Studio's now. Hopefully it ain't because Reason's sequencer was the main thing i liked about it.

    Reason 4 is great !!

    and u gotta give the new sequencer a chance i was confused and didnt like it for the first few hours but now im understanding it better and its alot cleaner interface

    u cant judge thor yet either there hasnt been a single refill release for it and i doubt any one learned the synth to its full advantage to determen if its the greatest synth

    all i know thor brought reason up to standerds with vstis thats all

    I like how u can add new lanes to whatever modules u load up too.....makes doin drums a lot easier IMO...cuz a lot of people add certain drums over the chorus and the way they have it now u can easily see where everything is if u use the lanes properly.

    the pre clicks are good.

    the arpeggiator is pretty cool..but its a lil hard to get used to IMO

    Im lovin it...Mcdonalds style haha

    start up a new beat..blah blah..load ur mixer

    bring up ur redrum...select what drums u wanna use..

    turn on the pre and the click..bang out ur basic kick and snare pattern

    now right click onto the redrum tab and hit "new note lane"...so a second set of blocks appear...

    hit record again to record a second set of drums...like percussion or hihats or crashes or something

    so u have 2 blocks of drums now...and its really easy to seperate ur hooks and whatnot...I mean its not that much different but its a lot easier to copy and paste whatever u want wherever u want u know.

    now if u did that with like..strings u could have ur first lane be a main melody..then play a chorus melody in an octave higher or somethin.

    Yeah man, i appreciate the lane aspect. Thats what i been waiting for. i hated to copy and paste and edit all the time in reason (so i didnt). So now its much better, and u can add the grooves to individual drum sounds within each lane. Im saving illmind, timbo, and some westcoast cat presets.

    now thas funny mayn.... cuz... I swear in FL, if you wanna make even the smallest alteration to anythin, you have to create a whole new pattern and then replay it, or copy/paste/edit whatever you wanted to change

    ^ oh...i do like 5-6 patterns in FL.

    hi hats get their own pattern

    rolls

    kick variations

    etc

    and each instrument gets its own pattern

    so i just lego block patterns for song creation thats why i prefer FL
