Plus there's that digi- I mean AVID Structure which seems a hit with traditional PT users and now Boom which seems close to redrum.
But, stick with it,
Just be patient with yourself man.
Yeah, patience seems to be a virtue for real. Just a couple of minutes after I posted I figured out that a source of some of my frustration seems to be the "regions" (not sure they're called that in reason). I wasn't defining my regions, so the program was doing it for me and that resulted in all sorts of brainfarts.
Does Boom let you use your own samples? I thought I had tried that, but maybe I missed something.
And like all PT users, I do have Structure Free.
I think I'll just have to sit down with Reason and explore how to do different things. Probably shoulda done that months ago.
I just had gotten so used to the earlier versions that all the technicalities were second nature and not in the way at all. But, as with all new things, there's a transitional stage and a learning curve.
