It does make sense to upgrade to Reason 9 now (if it has what you want). People ask this same question with every version of Reason. And each time, it's often a person will ask several times over a period of time...realizing that when they initially inquired, it was much longer ago. The lesson being: upgrade when you can and when Reason has stuff you want.Galaxy wrote:On the topic of 9.2 and upgrading. V9 was released in June of 2016. V8 Sept of 2014, with roughly a year to year and a half between upgrades dating back to V5 or V6.
Does it make sense to upgrade to 9 now? If past trends continue, V10 will be available between Sept 2017 and March, May latest 2018? With being able to upgrade to V9 once 10 is announced and getting 10 for free within the grace period.
Who else here is thinking about this?
There's also nothing keeping you from maintaining your own upgrade schedule. If you didn't upgrade to Reason 9 on day one, you don't need to upgrade to Reason 10 on day one either
- R8 was released in Sep 2014
I upgraded from R7.2 to R8.3.2 in Jul 2015 (10 months after the initial release)
- R9 was released in June 2016 (I still had Reason 8 for almost a year at this point)
I upgraded to R9.1 in Dec 2016 (6 months after the initial release; I had used R8 for 17 months)
