At the end of the Day its what you make...
I was all mpc hardware at first made the switch to reason alone learned in and out and i totally get aorund the muffled sound just but simply running the outputs of the reason Hardware engine to my Pre /comp / then Apogee converters and call it a day. It works for me I have got serval tracks placed on finihsed albums just striaght off of reason. It has become my weapon of choice. so its all good
