How many Reason users?
 
In Berlin this year, in the presentation announcing the release of Ableton 9, Gerhard Behles declared there were 1.7 million Ableton Live users.
I assume he meant registered users (?).

Anyway, my question is, has Propellerhead released the equivalent information for Reason?
If not, any unofficial stats?

Something else I'd be interested to know is the percentage of Windows and Mac users of Reason.

Cheers.

Really dunno why Props hiding it now:

I think it's about 600 000 for now... So maybe 300 000 kinda registered users!

Thanks!

I wonder if it would be 'impolite' to ask the Props to release the figures.
Don't see why they would want to hide this.

I think they shouldn't, really dunno what a game they're trying to play here, but as I know, you can see the quantity of users on other forums, coz really, why hide?

P.S. I've updated the thread, so you can see where I found the stats...

There's nothing to hide. There are hundreds of thousands of Propellerhead users. Probably passed one million by now.

Thanks koma7.

Where does the figure come from?

Really interesting, where do you've got that info?

So from the 2012-04-17, 19:55 till now, 534656 users had registered?

No way!

Yep... now keep watch for a half a million threads on "going legit"...

:)

The figure is dependent on how long this exact forum has been running, I assume that it has been around since the commercial release of Reason as I've seen users dating as far back as 1999, but with vBulletin (what this forum is run on) when you register, your profile page will have a number, for example this is mine:

https://www.propellerheads.se/forum/member.php?u=998701

Those last numbers indicate that I am the 998701st user to register on these forums, the most recent user that registered had the figure I posted above. You can change the number on that url to check out the first users who registered which are obviously the admin accounts.

Given that some users have multiple accounts and some users don't even have registered copies of reason, the number only reflects the amount of registered users on the forum, so lets just minus around 200,000 and we still got over 1 million registered users who are legit, maybe more. :)
