Read Me Ideas -Reason 6.5
Hello Propellerhead,

Small request, I'd think so anyway, add the download page note (see below) to the Read Me file for 6.5

Why? It will save some time and some fright lol

My scenario: Get email > new version, 6.5 > I'm excited >download new version > distracted >don't get back to download page > Hours later, I remember the new version Whoopeeee >dbl click 6.5 dmg >read the READ ME.pdf --bizarre nothing about installing. Not even a link-- > I drag and drop >> you know what's coming next >> all my files in my /Apps/Reason folder are now gone! LOL

Please ADD the download page note to your Read Me file and a link to the READ ME page, that's always up-to-date.

Luckily for me, Time Machine to the rescue.

6.5 is incredibly fun > it blows my mind >best upgrade for 2012 !!!



Installing your upgrade

1. Move your Sound Banks out of the way.
Reason 6.5 requires the Reason 6 Factory Sound Bank and the Orkester Sound Bank. These must be located in the Reason application folder. If you already have these installed, it's easiest to move them to another folder before updating, and then move them back again afterwards. The same is true for the Factory Sound Bank if you are upgrading Reason Essentials.

Important for Mac users! If you have personal files, e.g. ReFills, song files and patches in your Reason application folder, then you must move them to another location before you install the upgrade, or they will be lost.
2. We recommend that you uninstall your previous Reason version.
Windows users: Use the “Uninstall” function in the Control Panel.

Mac users: Manually delete the Reason folder.

3. Install
Windows users: Extract all files from the downloaded zip archive. Then double click the “Install Reason.exe” installer.

Mac users: Open the disk image and drag the Reason folder to your Applications folder on your hard drive.

4. Put your Reason Sound Banks in place.
If you moved your sound banks in step 1, simply move them back into the Reason application folder again.

If you don't have the sound banks on your computer, you need to install them from your Reason 6 or Reason Essentials DVD (depending on which version you have upgraded). Launch Reason - the program will ask you to insert the DVD and then automatically copy the sound banks to your hard drive.
