Pay What You Want For Upgrade To Reason 6

Owners of Propellerhead's Record-Reason Duo get a limited time offer      23/09/11
Propellerhead Software has announced that for limited time owners of its flagship Record–Reason Duo product will be able to purchase the Reason 6 upgrade at whatever price they choose, starting at $1.00 / €1.00.
Ernst Nathorst-Böös, Propellerhead CEO, told Sonic State, "Every time Propellerhead make an update, this triggers an interesting and healthy pricing discussion among our customers. So, this time were turning the tables and leaving the decision to the musicians themselves. We have built what we think is a really valuable update, including, among other things, three super high-quality effect devices that alone are well worth our regular upgrade price, but that's just what we think. The decision is now yours."
The Pay What You Want offer for the Reason 6 upgrade is extended to all registered owners of both Record and Reason (Duo) with a Propellerhead Ignition Key. The promotion starts upon Reason 6's release on September 30 and goes through October 31, 2011. Duo users may purchase the upgrade as a download directly from Propellerhead's online store, paying from €1.00/$1.00 to anything they choose. Owners of Reason who do not own Record can purchase the boxed upgrade for £139. After the promotion has ended, Duo users will be able to upgrade at the regular Reason 6 upgrade price.

I'll be doing $1 too, but only because after paying for Record and it's upgrade I kinda feel justified (justifying my own cheapness there :)

I think they are still amazing products though, very little touch them when it comes to having a self contained solid sketchpad for ideas. To each their own though

I'd pay them a hell lot more if it could host my VSTs instead of just offering what I already have (Reason + Record) plus 3 effects. 64 bit goes without saying.

PDA: Pretty Damn Awesome. After just having bought reason and record in may, I felt a little cjeated I had to pay again wat others would get for a lot less. I will pay 25 euro for to compensate a bit for you lot! ;) That's 1/4 of the original 99 euro upgrade price well worth it for the super coolest music soft company inda world. (Ableton being my second, Spectrasonics 3rd)
