Propellerhead Software has announced the immediate availability of Reason Version 3.0.3, a maintenance release that addresses several issues in Reason 3.
Additional features added to Reason 3.0.3 include:Enhanced performance via optimized code; added remote support for Frontier Design Group’s TranzPort wireless controller and the M-Audio Ozonic FireWire keyboard; a Remote Software Development Kit that will allow third party manufacturers to create their own Remote codecs to enable their controllers to interact with Reason 3.0. The SDK will be made public later this summer.
The Reason 3.0.3 update is free for all registered owners of Reason 3.0. It can be downloaded from www.propellerheads.se.
Propellerhead reps report that during development of Reason 3, the application was continuously tested with pre-release versions of Tiger to ensure compatibility. Reload 1.0—Propellerhead Software’s sample conversion utility—also works with Tiger; however, there is a minor anomaly related to inserting Akai formatted CDs into a Mac OS computer. For this reason, a new version of Reload, called 1.0.1, went into beta testing on May 31, 2005.
