Rack extensions and the USB key
 
Ok, so I got 6.5 updated and working with the key.
I go and use manage licences as the Rack extensions says.

Then I get this:

>>Rack Extensions

Combined license for all your Rack Extensions.
Your Rack Extension license is online-only and cannot be written to Ignition Key hardware.<<

when I'm in Reason and click on Rack extensions I get authorizer and a window showing three installed with just a delete key.

Do you need a frigging Nobel laureate to get this to work?

sigh

As we state quite clearly in the shop FAQ ( http://shop.propellerheads.se/faq/ ) all "Try" licenses are online only and can not be put on a key. Once you've purchased a license you should be able to put it on your key just fine. So it's exactly as the prompt says, your licenses currently are "online only" and can't be put on your key.

Is this the case for you? :)

HI Mattias,

is there a way to see which RE`s are on my Key?

Thanks

Ok I am confused. I took that as a general statement

I didn't think that these also applied to the three extensions that you concentrated all your marketing of 6.5 around. I took these to be free, as part of the 6.5 upgrade,showing off the rack? So they are all trials and will I have to pay for these at some point?

Ah i see one is free.

Is there anything available about what's new in 6.5 except for the RE? I can't easily find anything other than rack extensions? The manual doesn't have a whats new in 6.5...

pretty sure the only new thing is the Rack Extensions tech being added.

i like the rack extension idea but just think the props marketing/ messaging was disingenuous and set expectations beyond what was delivered - "we are giving 6.5 away for free to loyal customers who are on 6 and here are the three units we have developed for it." Without saying its actually going to cost you €134 to get them.

ah well, I already own reason pianos and don't make rave music, will wait to see what other rack units come along.

Pulsar and the Saturation plugin are both free currently.

martyn356 2012-06-15 11:55

Yeah, they are both 'meh' for me. Just not what I was expecting, so a bit disappointed. Tech and product wise it's a good call in the long term, just feel somewhat misled by the marketing of the 6.5 and what you'd get from installing it. At the moment it's a 'free shop' - whoop!

djwhizzkidd 2012-06-15 12:06

I must ask, why were you expecting things that were never promised to you?

No one has ever said, anywhere, we would be getting 3 free devices.

You seem annoyed at propellerheads for something they never said.

novich 2012-06-15 12:16

my RE do not show up under tool window and devices...?! I deleted all the extensions and installed them again and i am still having the same problem?
