Well. You might think this a big block. But I would disagree. The biggest block to creativity has to be my ISP, Virgin Media.

I bought myself a shiny new MBP the other week. Brilliant I thought. I'll be able to throw as much stuff as I want at it. My old Macbook was creaking from the stress of things.

But my connection from Virgin Media corrupts everything I try to download. Literally everything. DMG files constantly fail checksums and refuse to unpack.

So. I have lost a month of music making because of my ISP. I would leave but I have little faith in the alternatives as well. They are slow or even worse at customer service (i.e. charging for equipment repairs for example).

Ridiculous..

You act like RE are the only software that has a 30 day demo period.

FYI... they aren't, and plenty of apps that require authorization handle it much more transparently than Reason.

the trial period is to test the rack... creativity comes after you buy it

A whole application which you need to register yet can demo is quite different than an extension which you can demo. Especially if said extensions aren't created by the main company, but only provided so to speak.

Thing is; more transparency usually also brings in more options to by-pass any restrictions. Think about applications which provide a 30day trial. If they use the systems clock then people will simply turn that back, if they write a small key to keep track of time its bound to be found and abused too.

That is the main caveat IMO with most programs which provide a timed demo period.

You can't trial RE without registering your software, so that means that RE are only available for trial to registered users.

On the other hand, you can download a 30-day trial of, let's say Ableton Live, register it 1 time, and use it. You can even then download demo versions of VST plug-ins, and use them in the Ableton Live demo version, all without purchasing anything.

This is available to anybody, without purchasing anything.

There are other apps that have extended trial or demo periods that have NO registration requirement.

You presume that all trial software simply uses the system clock as the means verification, and that's just not true.

Furthermore, in another thread, people have mentioned that it's possible to use RE beyond the trial period with some workarounds.


The fact of the matter is that Propellerhead isn't doing anything world changing or revolutionary or something that nobody has ever thought of. There are plenty of alternative methods and means that are just as viable, and perhaps some case, more so, than the way Reason does it.

Does this pertain only to the loading of Rack Extensions, or is this every time you launch Reason? If it fails, can you still use Reason on its own, sans extensions? I don't have Reason 7, if that's not obvious.
