UN scientific Reason 3.0 test (clips attached)

The purpose of this UN scienfic test is i want to know if a beat (genrally speaking) sounds better in Reason or another program.........................yaya i know there could be a million flaws to this test, etc. But hey lets try.



Ok, i was bored so i just made some garbage beat in two different software programs. One was Reason and one was another one.


I just made one track in reason, and redid the same one in another program with different sound, but the same arrangment. I did a quick 2 second mix, no compression or limiting in either.


Does one sound overall better in sound quality to u guys?


Yaya, i know the beat sucks, im just talking about the overall sound.

Vote Clip 1, or Clip 2

hey its actually just a transfered midi file i made, loaded with different sounds, so the arrangment is the same, just the way it was mixed (only the levels) are different, so ya it does sound a different.

These clips aren’t even close to being level matched.

Clip 2 has to be reason... it has that loss of high frequency clarity and crispness that I alway experience when I use reason.

I agree.


Clip 1 = reason


Clip 2 = hypersonic.........i personally thought clip 2 was better.



Reason always seems to lose alot of low end in my experience.

NOPE, clip 1 is Reason 3.04.


Clip 2 = Hypersonic in Cubase SX3.


I do agree though that i sholud have level matched they WAY better.

But regardless of that, i still think its possible to tell sonic differences.

If there's enough interest me to match the levels much, more closer i will do it.

test

the sounds for the rhodes in reason were very in your face,the hypersonic mix was softer and more balanced.
i know you could have got the same results in reason.

I tried many ways to make Reason sound better, but it's just not happening at all.

You need to redo this test using the EXACT SAME SOUNDS, level-matched at the mix stage. Until then, you're just guessing and wasting time...
