    there is actually a third party program that emulates a midi controller but I forget what its called. It'll work with any program, but like he said why would you want to

    yeah. they got some ill ones for $150. if u broke, go 2 a pawn shop and buy a cheap ass keyboard for like $30-$50. just make sure it has midi connects in the back. it won't have no sliders, knobs, or wheels but u can fuck w/ reason with it.

    I think if you have reason, and wan't to use it, I think you ned to know alot mroe about producing then what you know, if you cant play the keys and use a midi controller, then reason is not for you.

    Reason is for experience producers who compose and or use otehr sound moduels and keybaords.

    if you use reason, then your msot likely a non sample based producer, how ever, alot of people still use samples, but, throw there own compostion in there.

    and alto fo people on this site are very good @ that.

    lol thats way off base. U dont need a lot of experience and u don't have to compose with it either. Reason was the first thing I ever owned for beatmakin. I learned on hardware tho if that makes a diffrence at all. I am completely sample based at this point (tho I can compose if I want to) and I make sampled beats in Reason even did a video on it that niggas are sleepin on.
