I haven't heard any track created with Reason that wouldn't have sounded just as good if FL had been used or Ableton for that matter. There are just too many different ways of producing to think that any DAW has a distinct advantage over another. One is better for live recording. Another has a great piano roll. Another has better quality provided effects. How can we seriously say that one "sounds" better than another. Wouldn't that be determined by your sound sources?
I still don't think this is a serious topic. Some replies appear to be tongue-in-cheek to me. This sounds just like the "audio engine" wars debate which has been settled time and again by comparing input and output files.
We found the REASON! its cause reason had mastering pulgin on it sounded better.
