Don't forget if you own Reason but didn't buy Balance full price, you'll get the new version thrown in for nowt if you spring for it now, so effectively you'll be getting 129 euros off Balance.
That's a deal and a half that definitely doesn't favour current Balance owners, provided you want a new 2 in 2 out USB interface.
Reminder to self:
