It's september 21st already! The countdown has begun on our forums. Just nine days to go until Reason 6, Balance, and Reason Essentials arrive in shops and music studios around the world. The release of our new stuff is only the beginning of what is an exciting month ahead. Check out all we've got for you.

In this issue:

  • Reason 6 - Pay What You Want

  • New Micro Tutorial Round Up

Pay What You WHAT!?!

Today we are excited to announce a special offer for registered Record Reason Duo users.

From the day of release on September 30th until the end of October, owners of both Record and Reason will be able to upgrade to Reason 6 by naming their own price.

Wait, what?

That's right. If you own both Reason and Record you decide what you will pay for the upgrade to Reason 6. We trust you to decide what Reason 6 is worth to you. Whatever you decide, that's what you'll pay*.

*Anything you want, as long as anything is at least $1.00/€1.00. But you've already decided to pay more than that, right?

If you want to read more or watch our video which explains the whole idea, head over to our website.


The Producers Conference: Live and STREAMING Online

Attention Southern California and Las Vegas area producers: Join Line 6 and Propellerhead at The Palms Casino recording studio on October 1st to see Beastie Boys' Mix Master Mike, electro producer Kill the Noise, Reason guru Kurt "Peff" Kurasaki, and Line 6's Reason Product Specialist Matt Piper in a day of inspiration, education, and healthy dose of Vegas partying thrown in. It's a series of in-depth presentations focusing on the new features of Reason 6 and Balance, our new recording interface.

Too far away to attend in person? You can now attend this event LIVE online via a premium uStream video feed. Watch the presentations, ask questions live, and share in The Producers Conference excitement. It's just like being there in person but you won't risk losing your car keys at the blackjack table downstairs.

The old saying, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" is being replaced on October 1st with a new saying. "What happens in Vegas, streams from Vegas!"
