Hi RT

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere - couldn't see it though...

This is for anyone interested in upgrading to 12 or want to grab some Players - at the moment, Reason Studios is offering the upgrade at $199 and throwing in all the Players for free.

Even if you don't intend on using 12 due to performance concerns, it's still a good PatternMutator + Polystep + BasslineGen + QuadNoteGen + DrumSequencer bundle (5x70$= 350$)

What about their existing customers who have already paid for the upgrade?

It says "Not available for this account".

I know someone who did the upgrade yesterday, I told him to write to support if he can make a move, if not to ask for a refund (since it is within the after-sales period) and to resume the 'upgrade once the refund has been made
Reason is the richest DAW, between VST and its own format (Rack Extension) which DAW can boast of having so many tools for creativity

As an existing customer who upgraded to R12 as soon as it was out It doesn't fill me with warm feelings.

Nah. Especially since R12 has been broken since release.

That's what it feels like. An anti-reward for being a early adopter and beta tester.

Another hard pass.

This "sale" is also another reminder to avoid buying Reason REs. Most of them are bound to be included in an upgrade or new version. I've been holding off on using reward points toward Friktion or Algoritm for that same reason.

I might buy BLG if it goes on sale (50-60%) off as it's the only RS device I don't currently own.

I have issues with the reward points required to get devices it cost nearly £500 to earn a £25 voucher so without having a better point based rewards system i.e.

Player device = 25 points (£500)
instrument device = 50 points (£1000)

the whole ecosystem is far to expensive to be seen as a reward and we still can't buy Reason upgrades

So glad I've no interest in players, otherwise I'd be as cheesed off as everyone else.
Also I got 12 cheap too.
Still...it's gonna be a while till they can run any kind of marketing gimmick without pissing everyone off after the R12 fiasco.

I don't know, if they returned to normal per product discounts rather than bundling devices together I'm sure it would work better than the current marketing for most customers.

Just received a 50%-off coupon for any of 5 RS Players: BLG, PM, QNG, PSS and DS. Which I can't use unfortunately.

They seem reasonable:
Want a fast way to find inspiration for songs and parts that are uniquely yours? Working with Players in Reason is as quick and easy as using a drum or synth loop, but without adding elements to your music that have already been used in thousands of other songs out there.

To get 50% off Reason Studios Players, simply enter coupon code below at checkout*:

I like the fact that Reason sent me an email with this wonderful offer when they must have known I'm on R12 already.

At least they are giving 50% off players now to Reason 12 owners.

Yeah, you gotta unsubscribe to that shit dude.
This place will tell you when anything goes down and those emails just screw with your head.

The only one of those Players I don't already own is BLG, which I can grab with Rewards for $24. And I already bought the R12 Upgrade before the price jump. So, I guess I'll just wait until R12 finally advances out of beta status and gets released as R13.

You mean when R13 is released you will start to use R12 as we will be going through all that beta again in R13....
