The new incarnation of Reason; and the brand goes marching on! It's more of the same, with this uprade bringing Kong Drum Designer and Dr. Octo Rex loop player to the fray & more, including many interface tweaks & multicore optimisation! - However there is imo a more subtle upgrade happening because one has to place this new release within a context of it's pairing with the accompanying 'Record' audio-sequencer, designed to work in harmony with Reason as the 'audio-multitrack' of the duo.
Most discussion on the www in the last 10 years has in the majority been about Reason as a substitute for hardware studio's or tradional sequencers with VST instruments; it usualy seems to be discussed from the point of trance and various other electronic/dance music genres - Partly i suppose this is because Reason grew out of the old Re-birth 303/808 (and later 303/909/808) software which was very much a trance/acid thing back when Re-birth appeared, but also partly it was because Reason lacked audio tracks as part of the package, so critical for creating any music with MC/vocals.
So although many people (including those i know personaly) use Reason for 'urban' genres , Re-wiring it into trad' sequencers, it's probably more thought of as a dance/music software. Thats gradualy changing with the adition of Record to the table and with this new dual release of Reason5/Record-1.5 the marketting is pushing quite clearly to now try and dominate the urban market (for want of a better phrase.. hip-hop, grime, road-rap, whatever).
The new Neptune Pitch adjuster and voice synth for Record is definately steering into hiphop, rnb and whatever urban (and pop-hop of course) territories, and Reason 1.5 has things like new signature Patches rex-loops & samples from Black Eyed Peas Printz Board & Public Enemy's Hank Shocklee, as well as the Akai-MPC-style 'Kong' Drum Designer to go-with! - together definately forming an RnB/Hip-hop dish. So the Reason/Record combi is just simply expanding not only in facilities but breadth of markets too.
