Reason is the richest DAW, between VST and its own format (Rack Extension) which DAW can boast of having so many tools for creativity

Fixed it for them:

"...But Apple has drawn up a high wall of exclusivity around its products. Due to this, third-party application compatibility suffers a lot. This is aggravated even more with the development of the M1 chip. Many third-party developers haven’t made the transition yet and are not able to offer native support. Ableton and Akai are all caught up but brands like Pro Tools AND REASON are yet to make the M1 leap."

:twisted:

Apart from this the article it pretty much general knowledge if you're interested in current hardware development. They could have gone much more into detail on how latency, chipset and power settings affect performance.

Yeah it reads like it wasn't written specifically for the Reason blog :shrugs:

And instead of using the manufacturer's generic battery life claims for the laptops in the blog, try running Reason and then reporting the battery life. (But don't test and report Reaper's battery life, as you'd get twice as much battery life than using Reason. Shhhh...)

Seems like they are getting paid by apple to promote the products. They do not show any real reason why the M1 Mac is better than any other.

M1 Mac when real world test have shown that the m1 Mac mini. is not as powerful as the 2018 i7 (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7501402&start=225)

Reason , how about listening to the community and running some of the stress tests on the machines you have in the office, or the laptops you are getting paid to promote.

Would love to see Scan do some laptop DAWBench tests or even some Reason benchmarks.
