In Reason 7 and later, and Reason Essentials 2 and later, we’ve added a new way of authorizing the software. You can authorize your licenses to a single computer, for offline use. This way you can use Reason without being connected to the internet, or without a USB port taken up by the key. To authorize your computer for offline use, please log in to your Propellerhead Account.
If you use Reason on several computers, you will still be able to add your license to an Ignition Key, or use Internet Verification. An Ignition Key is not included with the Reason or Reason Essentials software, but for those that need one, it is available for separate purchase from our online shop.
