    Extremely good! I'm surprised a piece of software like this isn't as well established as it should be.

    Pros

    The application on Android works flawlessly, with an incredibly easy sign up procedure and tutorial guide. Recording a meeting is simple and includes upto 15 minutes of recording time on their free plan.

    Cons

    Occasionally, the text would be ever so slightly inaccurate, but it's hard to blame the software for that. I've recorded multiple sessions at work and home and only come across errors very rarely.

    Overall, it's a world class production software that's take some time to learn however can be an awesome tool to make hits.

    Pros

    The playback has no delay, and runtime doesn't stutter using Macbook Pro.

    Cons

    It takes a little while to learn and the interface needs a little adjusting depending on your editing preference.

    Overall experience would be i love it, and could use it to do music.

    Pros

    I started using reason as another way to create music or compose beats for potential new songs, maybe as a sample or maybe as a new song. As i beatmaker i love my FLSTUDIO (yes i come from that generation) but in a sense i love to go in between software. I used to use reason 3, and I love how the inferface changed, making it easier to find stuff on the daw. Its something i would recommend to anyone that want to use the program.

    Cons

    I dont have cons just that i use to using my regular software FLSTUDIO that i cant say anthing bad about reason at all, you have to make up your own mind when using the software.

    Does exactly what it promises to do.

    Reviewed on 2018/06/28

    Pros

    It does exactly what it says it will do-it records your entire meeting, transcribes it, and then creates notes for it.

    Cons

    It takes many hours (I think it took about 4) for the transcription to finish. You need two devices minimum for every meeting.

    Response from Reason8

    Thank you very much for the review. We are glad that you liked the service.

    We are working on improving processing speed and in the next few weeks we plan to launch major update that will reduce the processing time.

    Reason8 works on at least 2 devices because this feature:
    1. Enables the best auto note taking quality on the market for in-person meetings. Using more than 1 microphone makes feasible to separate speakers and identify who said what.
    2. Provides mutual trust. Recording a meeting might be illegal without a permission of other participants. With reason8 all the participants agree with the fact of the meeting beeing recorded and all of them have meeting results at the end.

    We hope that you will continue to use reason8 and would really appreciate more feedback - how we can better fit the app to your needs.
