Hello, I'm new to this site. Found it while looking for online help with Reason. I'm using an older version 6.5 of Reason currently. I actually started wanting to learn Reason back when it was Version 3. So I bought it while in the military and never got to use it. Then I thought I was ready when 6.5 came out. So now I think I'm finally ready... :rolleyes:;)

Anyways, I just bought myself the Steinberg UR22mkII USB 2.0 Audio Interface which I plan on running guitars and mics through.

Midi Controller: Akai Professional MPK Mini Mk2. Just grabbed this as well since I had an old midi keyboard that I couldn't find the drivers for any longer.

Goal: My goal is to make EDM and maybe some Rock Songs of my own since I play guitar. I thought maybe I could incorporate the guitar with the EDM using Reason. I'm hoping that Reason is the way to go since I've already invested in it, but not on the current Ver. 8. Hoping that's not an issue just yet in the learning phase.

Anyways. Thanks and glad to find some support.

Welcome! You will be fine with Reason, just know 6.5 to 7 is a huge update with a ton of amazing features..... quantizing audio is one of them.

Personally, I wouldnt bother upgrading yet. I got a feeling r9 will be annouced late summer, so in the meantime youll have plenty to learn still.

Not sure what R9 will bring that comes close to the upgrades there are from 6.5 to 8 most likely they will be nominal stuff compared to 6.5 to 7 alone. But I agree to hold of until R9 comes out. I am still on R7......

Ye im still in 7 as well. Altough I like the upgrades, I dont feel compelled enough to do so.
