Buzz is the stuff. There are many avesome gens and FX and the flexible routing makes some really wicked things possible.

Reason is good but Buzz is better for synthetic power(if you look at the gen and fx). Great for experimental songs. Works very fast if you can master it.I can't belief this is FREE !!!

Buzz is great, it's free. The quality depends mostly on the machines you use. The amount of synths/fx is overwhelming and confusing. But thats a good point as well as a bad point. I you don't have any experience in pc-music you're in for a steep learning curve. But it's worth the while!

I'm a registered BUZZ-user and I think BUZZ is pretty hard to rate. As a cheap all-in-one music creation environment - I would give it a 10, easily. I WANT to love BUZZ, I really do.

However it doesn't integrate very well with external gear or other programs. I have always had big big problems with MIDI latency and erratic synchronization.

Aso, it can take ALOT of computer power to do a long and complex song if you like to add a bunch of effects, use layered sounds, or like to use alot of reverb/delay tricks for lushness.

If you own a sampler or use ACID at all, I reccomend building sounds and loops in BUZZ, dropping them to *.wav and importing them into your favorite so called professional tool of choice and don't look back.

The only way I have been able to use BUZZ with my external gear was to do this and import my BUZZ loops as audio tracks in Logic.

And BUZZ does not sound as good as your pro synths do, but with a 20-bit ASIO card like mine, it comes scarily close IF you know how to use the machines.

If anyone knows where I can find a fix or workaround so I can use BUZZ sync'ed as slave to a MIDI sequencer with Reason also running, and have acceptable latency and absolutely NO timing or sync descrepencies - then I will give BUZZ a 10+. Until then, I give it an 7 (barely).
