I think Pulsar, Audiomatic and Synchronous were all offered for free in the beginning, at least for those running the latest version of Reason. Exactly like Drum Sequencer! So I think Drum Sequencer is a pretty hot candidate to be included in later versions of Reason. I doubt this will be the case for QNG or Complex-1, though.
Yeah. Those three were free for a bit. Radical Piano was not. I bought it on the day they released it.
That said, it’s pretty old now so maybe that’s why it got chucked into Reason as a stock device.

Yeah, they have a track record of doing such things... one time for purchase REs, later included as stock devices. This is the list that I remember:
Pulsar
Audiomatic
Synchronous
Radical Pianos

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them add more Prop-brand REs to the stock devices. In fact, I would be surprised if they didn't.

That's a really good point. You are probably correct. I'm not going to hold my breath for QNG. When it is finally on sale for a crazy price, I'll definitely be buying it.

I think Radical Pianos was even free, at one time, given away with new Reason licenses (around Christmas 2014, IIRC). One thing to consider is Radical Pianos is a first generation RE (ie it's really old), so if we see any more REs added to Reason stock devices, which weren't given away as freebees, it will most likely be an older RE like Radical Keys, PX7, Rotor or Polar.

This is accurate. (Though if I'm not mistaken, I think Audiomatic has always been included with Reason since the early days of Rack Extensions, hasn't it?)

As for the one exception to that category, Radical Piano, it was released in 2012 and only became a part of Reason in 2017, five years later. If more preexisting Propellerhead REs become built-in devices in Reason 11, I'd expect them to probably be of a similar vintage.

It seems to me that ReasonStudios are trying to get us customers to pay more than the Player Device Bundle is worth. The item total is $262 yet they state the bundle is a deal at $300. It is an unethical. Then with their fake generosity they offer a false 50% off. That is not nice!!!

Player Device Bundle
https://www.reasonstudios.com/shop/bund ... ce-bundle/
Chord Detecting Player $19.00
Rhythm Player $69.00
Rhythm Sequencer $55.00
Kompulsion Player $35.00
Player Device $69.00
Strum Pattern Player $15.00
Total $262.00

Bundle is shown as $300.

Briefly, the bundle includes six players that total $262. The regular price for a bundle will sell for less than the total component price. So realistically the $262 bundle should sell for -24% or $199. When on a -50% sale it should sell for $99.50 and not the $300 at minus 50% = $149.

I already have the Reason Intro, Reason Rack Players Bundle and the LoopCracker Suite. I am a Reason fan that wants to buy the Player Device Bundle. I have sent three emails to Customer Service without any reply nor was the offer corrected. It still reads $300. I hope that they correct the promotion and then as an apology offer us Player fans the Player Device Bundle for $50 on a limited time offer. :D :thumbup:

The image clearly states $300 discounted to $149

The only one I don't have is Kompulsion

I think, the 300 price was calculated at a time when Kompulsion did cost more than it does now. yes, Panda has dropped the price on a buch (if not all) of his REs, as well as putting some free from cost. what a guy <333

Maybe if the bundle was all from the same developer but in this case it isn’t. Either buy it or don’t at this price.

Kompulsion is amazing. You need to get it.

Have you seen Poohbear's videos on it?
Great stuff!

Anyone contemplating this bundle should instead just grab Kompulsion and save themselves $115
