Made the plunge today and purchased the latest update to Propellerhead's legendary Reason software. In this latest version you can actually sync the program to external MIDI hardware (a feature that has been mysteriously missing from the program since it's inception). For me this means I can sync my drum machines to the program for precise recording and also use Reason 7 live to sync my guitar pedal boards via MIDI to the tempo of the track (very useful for multi-tap delays and live loops). Should take delivery in a few days. Once again I purchased from Sweetwater.com, who offers an excellent three payment option, to split your purchase into three monthly payments on your credit card.
