One thing that I have wanted for a long time in Reason is a new delay effect that I could play like a musical instrument. One that could get all the grungy vintage analog and tape delay effects, with infinite feedback (filtered of course) that would react to changes in delay time just like an old analog effect. In Reason 6, Propellerhead has given me that and more in the form of The Echo!
