Can I buy only Reason 6 Update if my copy of R5 is not original?
 
Hi.
Some time ago I downloaded Reason 5 because someone recommended it to me, with the purpose of trying it before I buy it. It came with a serial number and works fine. But now that I have used it for a while, I'm a big fan of the product and I'm interested on buying it. The question is, can I just buy the update even if the copy of Reason 5 is not original or I have to buy the whole version, which is like 4 times more expensive than the 1st option??? Does anyone in this forum have a similar case?? Hope you can help me. Greetings from Mexico and sorry for my bad english

You can only upgrade a legit version of reason.

The first time you buy Reason, you have to buy a full version, which gives you a full/base license.

the upgrade license is linked to the original base license.

what you can do is look on ebay and other sources, including posting here, to purchase any older version of reason...once you own a legit older version, you can purchase the upgrade.

before you set out to purchase a used copy of reason, i suggest you read both the buying and selling sections at this link: https://www.propellerheads.se/suppor...ion=buyandsell

with a little effort, you should be able to get a used copy of an older version of reason.

good luck.

With a little effort, OP can also get a copy of Reason 6/6.5 for $200-250.

I've seen 4-5 sellers in the past few days between here & KVR.

You should be able to buy an older legit license of Reason (1-5) for relatively cheap on eBay. You can then get the Reason 6 upgrade.

Alternatively, you can also buy a full Reason 6 license second hand (can be found for $ 200).

Also consider the student version of Reason if you're still a student (or have a close relative who is a student).
