Installation on Mac is still easier. Product registration is not well explained very clearly but it is very easy to do and after 30 minutes of installation, on my deck with the DVD and my WiFi, I was already composing :-) .

However, a small bug was reported on a Mac version you must install a patch (see CodeMeter Update) but nothing serious.

Hardware side, with my RME Multiface + HDSPe ExpressCard on Macbook Pro 15 "Mac OS 10.5.x nickel everything works except for one problem insert volume but is not due to record in my opinion.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

<ul>

Macbook Pro 15 "

4GB RAM Mac OS X 1.5.x (Leopard)

RME Multiface HDSPe ExpressCard (My Macbook is lucky to still have this port! Phew otherwise bye bye my Multiface ...)

</ul>
Nothing to say, the products are super stable Proppelerheads ... Never crash and that even when I disconnect my sound card by accident. That said it's a bit normal with this kind of product all-in-one (No plug-ins not risk of instability)

Performance-wise, I am very surprised with the result. However, this varies widely used equipment. But in my case, the CPU purring with 10 tracks (4 audio Mono + 6 Reason). I personally have not gone further but the demo songs that show it's solid. My RME is still as powerful and well configured with Reason, latency can barely 3ms. Which is very honorable for the components in the home studio.

OVERALL OPINION

I love it! I scream with joy even! <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" />

Reason I know from the 1.0 beta and I could see the evolution of the product. I dreamed then 8 years of this record! And here at last!

I confess never to have loved using Rewire with Cubase or ProTools. I have a product all-in-one is perfect or stability, performance and quality nickel that I met my level of amateur home studio. There are so many opportunities to record that this product is the very heart of my Homestudio. The addition of ID8 very convenient and time stretch is super impressive.

It's been two weeks that I played with and I've never been so creative! And a hop hop bass line and some guitar and hop add a battery ... The grip is so easy that I did not open the manual. (However I could use a little lesson in engineering because I still have a hard time with Compressors <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> ).

This purchase is for me to invest a musico amateur happy. I finally have everything I need in a box less than 500 €.

Side money I think we can not find better.
