Reason Rack Extensions - A closed format?
Want to say, first of all, that it's cool Reason's rack is a little more open to possibilities. That's a very good thing. The new capabilities it offers is pretty sweet! The pricing of the plug-ins in the store also seem very reasonable. That is until one considers that this model doesn't seem to give any consideration to the users of other software. Even though some software (such as Pro Tools) has its own format, most manufactures have multiple versions of their plugs available for use in other software at no additional cost. It is not uncommon for a company to release a plug-in for VST, Audio Units, and RTAS in the same package for one price. Maybe that's why Softube's offerings are a little less than their multi-format offerings. Because you are buying one format only? Where's the reviews and users experiences in the store? There's only a rating system there. Why not allow users to use coupons or codes from manufactures that will allow them a decent discount if they own the software in another format?
