Not sure how many more players can be created without a massive amount of overlap but this new progression player is possibly the most intriguing one so I'm still looking forward to seeing what it's capable of - I'm just hoping that it's not something included in R12 so I can try it out in R11.

Maybe they accidentally left off a key phrase for that statement; "end of".

Maybe (or actually NOT maybe) they said, "before summer" and not "before the official date of astronomical summer start". I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in Europe, when we say "before summer", we mean "before we stop working and go on summer holiday", which is somewhere around second half of July and first half of August.

Just chill and wait until it lands :puf_smile:

Summer solstice happened on the 21st of June. So it's technically the very beginning of the summer right now (in the northern hemisphere). So they have missed the mark by a few days (thus far); not too bad. I'd expect it to hit the shop any day now. That's the problem with transparency, you can't always hit the publicly stated dates.

But they didn't state a date, they stated a concept "before summer" which is clearly open to interpretation (as I demonstrated).

But summer starts at a specific date, it isn't really a concept. I guess it depends upon how literally one takes the words "before summer". I, for one, don't really care, though. :)

Yeah could just mean "before summer vacation". Like school being out for the summer, which is not usually defined by the exact date that summer begins.

There's actually the astronomical start of summer, which is June 21st, and there is the meteorologic start of summer which is on or around June 1st, so even that is up to interpretation :puf_bigsmile:

It could also refer to one of their employees named Summer who works as a developer. They just didn't finish the sentence... before Summer starts working on our next RE. I'm curious what the next RE is going to be.

One could also make the argument that summer in the Southern hemisphere begins in late December. Perhaps we will see this new player released in December.

Oh missed that. Yeah probably that.

Or...the launch of Summer itself has fallen behind on the roadmap. Surely somebody else said that one too?

Maybe Reason Studios has created their own unique quirky CalendaRE that is yet to be released ;)

It'll be part of Reason+ of course but you'll absolutely be able to use it in Reason 11 given it's a Rack Extension. It'll go into the Rewards shop on launch day too.

Regarding the release date, keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram tomorrow afternoon.... ;)

Will it be only available in reason+( and shop)> or also for those with reason 12? I just bought 12 so I was wondering, since it sounds interesting.

That's good news "Usable in R11"

But you're never going to see me using any of social networks - sorry about that I can't stand what goes on with those platforms.

How about a YouTube #short ;)
Or better yet a blog post on ReasonStudios.com

Working in IT, I totally relate to that.
'you will get it by the end of the week' means 'there is a chance I will work on it next week'
'it is 99% complete' means 'I just put it on my task list'

So basically if really we have it this afternoon, I am freaking impressed. They made it before MY summer holidays (my only point of référence lol).

Except that RSHQ is located in the Northern hemisphere; as are the vast majority of their users, and the vast majority of the world's population. But yeah, they could also be referring to the beginning of summer on Mars, I suppose. Anyway, all this back and forth banter is just for fun, I really don't care. :)

I think that having an employee called "Summer" is the only possible explanation. What we should really be worried about is that Summer's sister is called "The End Of The Year". I think she is in charge of VST3 support.

I asked RS if I could give a tiny sneak peek and they agreed. Here's the right side of the back.

Just realised that James said tomorrow - not Friday ;)

I think RS is working on Jamaican time (which is my favourite).

'Mi Soon Come' This Jamaican expression means literally: I'll be right there. However if you're told mi soon come, don't be fooled. Island time is much slower than the rest of the world and this expression should be interpreted as meaning anything from a few hours to a few days
