Hey what do you guys think of Reason 3 software?

im thinking of getting it for recording and i want to know what i need in addition to the software and a computer.

I also want to know how difficult it is to learn and if its worth spending the time to learn how to do it. Is it really hard?

Is it a good investment of time? (the price isnt a problem since im getting it from a friend)

How does it sound?

Thanks for the help guys
I think your main problem will be the fact that Reason doesn't record audio...
