Is anyone running Reason 10.4 on Big Sur (Intel, not M1 chip)? I know it's not officially supported, but can anyone confirm that it works OK?

It appears RS have three categories of compatibility:
  • compatible
  • untested
  • incompatible
When you say "not officially supported", it sounds to me as if you're hoping it falls into the second category.

But it doesn't; it falls into the third category, which sounds to me as if RS has tested it and identified significant problems.

I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Yeah I think you're right. Oh well. I have to buy a new MacBook soon, might leave it until next month and then hopefully pick up a cheap May Madness upgrade to Reason 11 on the new machine

I'm running older versions of quite a lot of stuff, figured out that at regular prices, upgrading all my music software for Big Sur compatibility would set me back at least about $850
