I'm just wondering what the difference is between a program like Logic Pro and Reason.

Is Logic more for sequencing and production whereas Reason is more synthesizing sounds?

Not so much anymore.

Reason does have sequencere functionality, albiet nowhere near as advanced as Logic Pro's. Sound-wise, it has a 'modular' pattern to it. This means that you have bunch of sound modules (synths, drum machines, effects) and you plug them all into a mixer - basically, this is the same as Logic Pro! The one limitation of Reason, is that you cannot record any audio. It's purely sample/synth based.

Logic Pro, however, is a full-flight audio recording/audio instrument-using DAW - the 'Pro' in the title kinda gives this away! As a lontime, hardcore Logic user, I can't recomment it enough. It. Does. Everything.

You've got some AMAZING synths, better than Reason without a doubt. And, the processing pluggins are far, FAR better.

In a word, Logic is just great.

If you want sound synthesis, something like Reaktor would be more the way to go. That's totally modular and you can build sounds/instruments from scratch.

Hope this helps a little.
