Version 3.0.5 of Propellerhead Software’s Reason will be compatible with Apple Computer’s new Intel-based computers. No shipping date has been set. Beta testing has commenced and will be offered as a free download for registered users. Propellerhead Software is looking for beta testers to test Reason for Intel-based Macs. This round of testing is open to both non-registered users and to registered Reason 3.0 users.
Reason 3.0.5 will be available only in the Intel format and will not run on PowerPC-based Mac computers. The company is currently working with Apple Computer to increase the performance of the PowerPC version of Reason (3.0.4) compiled with XCode.
Propellerhead Software has also updated its ReWire and REX libraries, which are used by many other applications to provide integration with Propellerhead Reason and ReCycle. Both ReWire and REX will be made available as Universal Binaries at the same time that Reason 3.0.5 ships. ReWire Version 2.5 also sports significant performance enhancements when loading samples into Reason in a ReWire session.
