The Props have always said that they don't support 3rd party plug-ins for the simple reason that they can optimize the product that way, although for some reason (no pun intended) my PC cant even load certain Reason-produced songs as it is considered not 'powerful' enough, even though I have no trouble loading tracks with my other DAWs.

I for one own Reason 4 and am treating this as a $150 upgrade to 'Reason 5' and not as the touted mini-DAW and am eagerly awaiting the usual 'box 'o' software & 'bonus' stickers.

Reason is a pretty good self contained fun-to-use program to bang out tracks on and being able to record external audio now is a big plus that was missing from the original, but I agree with you that the lack of VST support is a major pain (I use Ableton & Cubase for these - another big investment).

This would normally seem like a dull addition to Props line of products.. kind of 'too little, too late' But Holy God, that mixer sounds AMAZING!! Seriously, it sounds so fantastic.. I was absolutely amazed with my final mixes! I'm tired of these over-boated DAWS that are made for engineers more so than musicians. This is perfect for musicians, without any loss on the sound quality. Really. Give the demo a try & be amazed by this fabulous mixer, you will be amazed. I came into this cynical, believe it or not, but have been CONVERTED!

So long Sonar 8.. you've been an OK companion but I'm not an engineer & Record's final product actually sounds better than anything I ever made from you!

thats really interesting Entourage, it's not often you hear about the sound of a DAW, I think we usually assume that its all 1s and 0s so how can it be different. Are you using the same audio hardware for both systems?

that means for me to use my OMNISPHERE.... IVORY..... PHILHARMONIK VSL etc.. id have to buy a RECEPTOR or v-machine and input my softsynths thru audio.... more expense.

I like the mixer, too. I figure it's probably got a modeled sound, just like a lot of other plugins, except these models are built in rather than added on. I was able to get a 24 track "band" mix sounding good very quick. I could see using it for mixing only.
