Do you still use the ASR 10?
I sold my ASR-10, SCSI CD-ROM, and all libraries (about 30 floppies and a dozen or so CD-ROM) about 20 years ago - not too long after I had settled into using Reason 1.0. :thumbup:
Win 10 | Reason 12 |  Studio 1 4.6 | i7 3770k @ 3.5 Ghz | 16 GB RAM | Reactor 1TB SSD | RME Babyface Pro | Panorama P-4 | Akai MPC Live 2 & Akai Force | Roland System 8, TR-8 7x7 Expansion, MX1, JX8P, TB3 | Dreadbox Typhon | Korg Minilogue XD

Something I would enjoy in future updates is more implementation of dotted times in synced delays and whatnot.
What devices can’t do this?
the Echo does not have dotted times. I just use milliseconds and do the math to set it myself. Would be nice though.

The Echo has dotted times. 3/32 = dotted 16th. 3/16 = dotted 8th. 3/8 = dotted quarter.

I never noticed. Thanks. I missed it the first time I guess and never looked back. Thanks again.

Just to recap

This was the "increased" user graph from the road map
IMG_2826.PNG
Now I managed to get 4 people using the cheap £3 subscription so can honestly say I also saw an increase in the user base however with the offering now ending it's the subscribers who carry on with the service that really matter.

And hears my breakdown

Customer #1 stopped using RRP within a couple of weeks in favour of his current Live / vst collection.
Customer #2 stopped using Reason Standalone after glitchy graphics when 12 came out.
Customer #3 stopped using Reason standalone after deciding they didn't want to pay full price.

And I decided that I didn't want R12 after testing it for a few weeks and feeling like I could carry on with R11Suite while new features got added and fixed over the next 6 months +

So that's 3 new customers who won't be renewing the subscription and 1 long term customer put off by R12 who wasn't really interested in subscription but give it a try...

4 out of 4 quitting the service.

How many people out there did you try to convert and what's happened to them?

I actually subscibed to R+ for the 333 Deal and also owned R11 Suite at the time.

I was always going to upgrade to R12 as Mimic, Comb-V2 and Hi-res once that is sorted out are great additions.

I also would've waited until some of the issues were sorted out but when they announced the price increase to $199.00 I just jumped on the $129.00 deal.

Regarding your question/poll, I will not be renewing my subscription since I already purchased R12, the only thing it adds for me are the packs which is one of the things I like to do in Reason so I don't really need them.

Some of them are very cool and I'm not in anyway implying they're not useful.

Creating patches is just some of the fun I have so that takes some of it away by already being created but they do have very useful purposes.

Looking forward to the R12-CE - Completed Edition. Hope the October patches brings us close to that.

Have fun be safe :puf_smile:

See I've been using Reason since version 1 and I couldn't buy yet another upgrade that doesn't work, even though RS layed out the roadmap and implemented a price increase I just wasn't prepared to buy.

I've enjoyed using Reason for years and I'm sure that I will continue enjoying using it but this new approach to releasing features as and when while fixing bugs as and when is just asking for trust I'm personally not willing to buy into especially as the last few months of R11 exposed too many bugs that just got ignored because R+ was financially more important to the company and although I understand I just can't agree as it seems more like an excuse to be in a perpetual state of development rather than fixing the release then adding enhancements to the current version.

As things stand I'm more happy to keep using my old version or wait and pay the extra for a working stable version of the software than €$£20 a month for a development version, this whole + thing was marketed as software that could be fixed updated and enhanced but the reality so far is bugs and hints that things will get better "in the future"

I honestly hope that things get better and I'm looking forward to seeing what the finished product functions like but for now I'm content with the bugs I know about and happy that I know that a fix isn't in the works especially as I don't have to keep paying for it.
