There was a really good post about this not too long ago, type in "remixing software" in the search to the top right and you should be able to find that post.

reason 4 is good. so is ableton.
each software has its pros and cons, for instance in ableton you can work with audio, reason you can't(at least not in an audio channel, you have to use a sampler)

I suggest you try the demos and decide for yourself

I was thinkin, of working on Both, Less Ableton can also create Beats, and syth, some really cool effects to a sound and bass. But will try both Demo's and see where I will be. I want to Create My Remixes of Song, and make many types of Styles from, Hip Hop, Trance, House, Drum and Bass. Just want to add some flare, to songs I want o play that no one has done yet.

Is this the software i will be needing then?

each has the abilty to create drums, synths, effects, etc and in any genre/style
check out the demo's, or even youtube reviews of each
