Question Performance problems since using Reason 6

I am not sure if I am the only one experiencing these problems so I thought I rather ask you other users before contacting any technical support.
For years I've been using Reason and Record in all available versions and lived happily with them.
Now, since I use the brandnew version of Reason I suddenly witness unexpected performance problems.
First, I realized that the scrolling activities (esp. when working in the note editor or automation lanes) are extremely slow.
But also I get to know this "Your computer is too slow..." message which I never had before!
This also appears sometimes on projects I've created with former versions of the program.
Think I should add that my PC isn't definitely too slow - it's rather some sort of power machine...
So my question:
Are you experiencing such problems as well?
Should I only wait for some kind of maintenance update?
Should we bother Propellerhead's technical support??
Please let me know.

I have just reverted back to v5 as performance was too bad for me.

A real shame as v6 looks awesome, but I had audio stuttering and glitches, and that was through a Focusrite Sapphire Pro 40 on an Intel Duo Core Macbook.

I use Reason extensively on stage with the band I play with at some pretty large shows and could not risk running v6, it's just too unstable at the moment.

So I will wait until some updates come available and try again.

PLEASE fix this Prop team or give us some sort of explanation at least.

I seem to have a bar on the DSP monitor as soon as I add a default thor and hit a key. I'm sure this wasn't the case in Record.

That is really interesting! First what specs of yours PC's...

Is this happening on 64 bit cause im pretty shure I read somewhere that 64 bit was making reason slower.

So any of you experiencing this on 32 bit.

Guys - As of the time of this post, the percentages in the Poll add up to 113.33%. It’s no big deal but I checked it with another calculator because I thought my precious Hewlett Packard was on the blink. Maybe the Propellerhead servers blew a gasket or something during the past week.

Inthusiast – I’ve got to show my ignorance and ask out of curiosity: what the heck is a “.. burning decompression event ..”? I’m sort of afraid to Google it.
