Propellerhead Reason: classes online/near me?
So I'm apparently too old to just "get it" like the younger hipper Gen X/Y kids... and I'm not going to get as far as I need without a lot of help. I have no idea where to search for classes for this program. Anyone?
There should be online tutorials out there. It's not terribly difficult to master once you understand routing and what it is that you are seeing. MIDI might be a bit confusing too. I'd suggest trying to digest it in small parts. Also keep in mind that it sorta works like analog stuff... you can hit the <tab> key and flip the rack around.

This may sound basic - but read the manual. The Props wrote an amazing, hands-on tutorial driven manual that should get you though most things.

I did get a manual for the basics, that's not the issue. I just feel like I'm not speaking the language well. For example, I'd like to import a song in AIFF form so I can use it as a template for other parts, but I'm having no luck and information I've found online either says "You shouldn't want to do that", "It's so obvious we don't need to explain that here", or "It's more involved than we're ready to cover in this article/chapter". Maybe there's a secret handshake...?

If you have another DAW, like Cubase, you can use REason as a re-wire device, like a plugin. That way you can import the AIF file into your daw and then build the track in Reason.
Track the outputs of Reason into the daw for later editing. Sounds a lot more complicated than what you want to do, but I haven't messed with Reason since version 3.
Yeah, unless they have changed Reason, you can't work with an .aiff like that. Use Reason as a plug in inside your usual DAW.

I took a class at the local community college to learn about MIDI stuff. Reason was definitely my preferred platform for writing songs. I don't recall ever doing what you are trying to do within JUST Reason. To do what you are trying to do we would re-wire into Pro-tools and use the reason stuff for the extra instruments. Could also use the pro tools MIDI stuff next to the Reason stuff using rewire, if we happened to like something in pro tools more than the reason version.
Check out your local colleges for classes. Usually the professors/teachers are pretty cool about answering your questions even if you aren't in one of their classes. I learned a bit of music theory from the theory teacher just from asking him when we crossed paths in the hallways.

So I got the answer I was looking for, and I feel like a total n00b...
Reason 6 has Record 1.5 integrated as a matter of course.
So you can record analog tracks right alongside the MIDI stuff.
SO... you can simply "import" an audio file and it turns up as a stereo track.
