tbh, sound on sound, music production, computer music, and future music, are all total rip offs. it always helps to have a good book on the program you are using, but i think that logic is a lot more complex than reason and you may not need one else you decide to "upgrade".
i'll pass on any notes i think might be helpful from my lecture if you want

Theres a lot of debate both on the net and IRL about the best software to use but I know a a couple of serious producers in the D&B and Hardcore scene who've had no problems releasing tracks they've created in Cubase, Reason and Fl.
They've always been of the opinion that as long as your end product is what you were aiming for it really doesn't matter what your tools are. How true that is I don't know?

If any of your guys are geting into this seriously, then i can't suggest logic or pro tools more. i know some people in the industry (but mainly in america) use ableton, but i've tried so many of these programs, when i started training as a sound engineer, i used cubase, and before fruity loops and other base level software. but even the supposedly "industry standard" software doesn't compare to logic and PT.

Cubase isn't really entry level software .
There is a lot of snobishness with producers, especially the ones that use high end DAW's and other products and it gives a new producer a clouded view of what they can use because it's all "omg if you don't use Logic then you suck and can't make decent music". Yeah they are fab products but they are in no way the be all and end all of DAW's. There is so much choice out there that you use whatever you feel conformable with using and not what other people tell you, there are loads of well known producers that use Reason and FL Studio and you can make high quality release worthy music, it's not what you use, it's how you use it, and any producer worth their salt will tell you that as well.
Hell, Burial uses Sound Forge to produce.
