upgrade path is obscure
Reason Essentials to Reason upgrade, this is what I wished to do but I never managed it on the web site because no such clear avenue is provided. Why is it so hard for an existing user to spend their money on upgrading Propellerhead products?
I am in business.
Finding such an obstacle to revenue I would be looking at reviewing my procedures and purging my staff.

wow, if you had trouble finding that, you probably forgot your reading glasses :)

Yes, thanks - I feel quite stupid but cannot overcome the obstacles in the web site. I cannot get the upgrade software without having a registered version. Yet, my copy is registered, or at least, I have undergone the process of registering and received no indication otherwise. Perplexing, to say the least.

You appear have a reason essentials icon under your forum name which suggests that something knows you are registered.

Essentials had a somewhat significant price drop earlier this year (around February/March) which resulted in an increase in the cost of the upgrade.

So there are multiple upgrade options for Essentials, depending on when you purchased it, whether or not you bought it stand-alone, or if you bought it with Balance and already owned a previous version of reason or record.

If memory serves, there is a drop down menu to select what product you are upgrading from.

Perhaps contact Props support with your Essentials purchase information and ask them to walk you through buying the upgrade to full Reason 6.5.
