is the next step below protools...:no:

Reason's great, and it does a lot of things, but one thing it definitely ain't is "the next step below protools"
I'd recommend getting yourself a sequencer with the capability to record, arrange and edit audio files, such as Pro Tools (M-Powered if your on a tight budget), Logic Pro (If your on a Mac, and the budget's not so much of an issue), Cubase SX, Sonar, Live... there are even a bunch of free or shareware sequencers out there, that a quick google search on audio/midi sequencers or DAW's will probably come up with.

You'll only see any real benefit from Pro Tools if you will be doing a lot of recording, particularly multi-track recording, but if you'll only be recording vocals and not a lot else, then most of the other sequencers out there should provide what you need, and in combination with one of these Reason really is sick, but on its own recording any external sounds is impossible, and personally I find this to be essential, especially with hip hop.

There should be fully functioning time limited demo's out there for a lot of these programs, so definitely go check them out and see what your comfortable with.
