When did you purchase Record? If July 2011 or later, you are entitled to a free upgrade to Reason 6 and should contact Props with proof of purchase date .
For everyone who purchased Reason AND Record prior to July, 2011, there was a 'pay what you want' promotion for the upgrade to Reason 6 for the first month after the release of Reason 6, so many got that for $1.
Reason 6 didn't just integrate Record, it also added support for 64-bit and three new devices: The Echo, Alligator, and Pulverizer - so there's a value in that.
Try the demo to see how great Alligator and Pulverizer are - no offense to The Echo, but the other two are worth the price of the upgrade.
If you buy Reason 6 upgrade now ($169), you actually get 6.5, which was a free upgrade for owners of Reason 6, and for a limited time, you can get the Pulsar Rack Extension for free - after which it will cost $49 or $59 or something like that. (You missed the free Softube Saturation Knob Rack Extension which is now $29)
Reason upgrades have always cost something, and have always added features. You could wait for Reason 7 and see if the three devices added in Reason 6 and whatever is added in Reason 7 is worth the cost of the upgrade to 7.
It pays to stay engaged in this site, and the forums, so you don't miss out on the windows of opportunity to get the most value out of your purchase.
