Many are disappointed by the announcement of Reason 3.0; it's an
evolutionary release that still lacks key features like audio recording
in an otherwise fantastic program. But on the upside, Propellerhead is
pricing Reason and upgrade low enough that it's a great time to pick up
the program or upgrade.
According to Propellerhead's 3.0 FAQ,
Reason 2.5's price has been reduced by the upgrade price difference — making it US$129 / EUR 99 cheaper. Not excited by what's
new in 3.0? Pick up 2.5 at a lower price and pocket the difference. Further evidence of the
value of this app for sample lovers: the long parade of free ReFill packs continues, with today's release of a free REX pack from Doctor Filter — Back Bone Beatz.
In other words, love it or hate it, don't expect this app to go away any time soon.
