I wanted to let everyone know that I just received my MacBook Pro and I installed all of my Reason products, including Balance. Everything works perfectly now that Windows 7 is no longer being used. It is very easy to tell that this music software is much better suited for the Apple computers. The stability is also outstanding. Everything has been plug and play and all works like a charm with no interference.
I would highly suggest to all composers to get a MacBook Pro to compose and record your music from.
Thank you all for you tips and suggestions. It is nice to be able to come to this forum and receive expert help.
