Reason 4/5 & Mountain Lion
 
Quick question that I couldn't clarify googling around...

Are any of the earlier versions of Reason (ie. v4 or v5) compatible with Mountain Lion? Considering buying one of the new MacBook Airs, and I don't think I could roll back to Snow Leopard on it, which I'm using now.

If you had to you could do a fresh install of an older OS on that computer, but as long as you're getting a new computer, I think that upgrading to Reason 6.5 would be well worth it even if 4 or 5 does work, and you wouldn't lose the improvements from the last 2 OS upgrades. :)

Hopefully you'll get a better answer from someone, but most people who've already updated to Mountain Lion have probably also already updated to Reason 6 or higher.

If you don't have a copy of your own yet, you might want to watch the forums. There have been a few people selling up-to-date copies for $200-300 recently.

I appreciate the input, unfortunately I'm not lookin to upgrade to 6 or 6.5, and the new apple laptops don't support snow leopard.

Has anybody here used reason 4 or 5 on mountain lion?

I don't know it but I'd say 5 should run fine, I am not aware of any severe changes in the OSX support..?

You could try asking in the User forum or contacting support

Even if it's not officially supported I'd be surprised if you couldn't install Snow Leopard or at least Lion on a newer laptop if you wanted to, but I could be wrong. I'm sure it would at least leave some newer hardware features unused though.

Reason 5 apparently works fine in Lion though: http://www.propellerheads.se/support...icle=lion-info

I know it's not the definitive answer you're looking for, but Mountain Lion is a relatively minor upgrade (not a lot changed under the hood compared to other upgrades) and it probably wouldn't have broken compatibility with Reason 5 if it works in Lion.

Only thing is that Mountain Lion is a "cleanup" release that drops support for a lot of old tech (as for example Carbon apps) which could result in problems but as I said I never noticed any severe changes in the base OS support, Props seem to be doing everything properly without hacks so they don't have problems with updates ;)

Edit: Add to that the official word on Mountain Lion compatibility also came without updates, so I guess you should be safe between ML and L :)
