    "Sluggish!"

    March 16, 2005  |   By C Bennett

    Version: Reason 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Couldn't agree more with the two previous comments. Loaded up Reason 3.0 demo on my Titanium G4867 PowerBook (768MB RAM) and hit play on the demo song. The CPU meter stayed in the green (maybe 65%) but the audio glitched, pipped and popped through all of the demo tracks and the actual application window seemed incredibly unresponsive. Iâ??ve only ever had this experience when Reason 2.5 was loaded with about 40+ rack units and the CPU meter in the red (95%). Basically Reason 3 is one hungry hungry hippo! Did all the usual system optimisations (*censored*tail etc.) and a full restart and nope Reason 3 is unusably slow on older Macs, whereas 2.5 was super nippy and could handle some serious rack combos. The Propellerheads website states a G3 (minimum) but I honestly don't think it's worth moving to version 3 unless you have a nuclear powered quad G6. Very disappointed indeed!

    "Upgrade Your Mac!"

    March 16, 2005  |   By rspress

    Version: Reason 3.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    For those who want to upgrade to Version 3 then add the cost of a faster Mac if you do not already have one. With version 2.5 I could have tons of samplers, synths, effects just about anything I wanted with no playback problems. I have had 25-30 instrument tracks and a full load of effects with no problems. On version 3 the few tracks the demo songs have will choke my eMac 800Mhz. I will stick with version 2.5 until I can afford to upgrade my Mac!

    BTW. Hello people at proppellerhead, some of us would like to use live audio to modulate the vocoder! I though version 3 would take care of this shortcoming but we still have to use a sampler with recorded vocals to mod the vocorder. It would be nice if Reason accepted live audio as an input to the vocorder and recorded the result. It would be even better if live audio was just another instrument that could be passed through the effects and audio chain and recorder live. Splitting the audio into a regular track, an effected track or out to the vocorder would be nice as well.

    Lack of these features and the MAJOR increase in processor load cost version 3 two stars
