Essentials/Balance beginner having problems
Was I supposed to get an ignition key with the balance/essentials combo?

Im noticing a different extension in essential, my old reason 3 beats are rns and essential is ree,,, I guess I cant load those reason 3 beats with essential? Do I need to upgrade?

awful midi problems - i have a roland keytar and i cant get anywhere near hooking it up - i have it in line 1 and yah nothing is reading. All help sincerely appreciated...

Ignition Key:

The codemeter (key) is built into Balance.

Reason 3 files:

Essentials can only open essentials files - you need Reason 6.5 upgrade to open your older Reason 3 files (Reason 6.5 has a new extension but can open files created in older versions of Reason).

If your version or Reason 3 is licensed, then your balance+essentials purchase entitles you to a free upgrade to R6.5 - otherwise you need to purchase the $169 upgrade.


Are you Windows or MAC?

edit >> preferences | audio ; select Balance

create >> audio track ; by default, it should be armed to record and input should be balance - double check that to make sure

make sure on balance you select the input that you have your keytar plugged into.
