Propellerhead Announces New Reason Beta As Universal BinarySoftware offers full native compatibility with Apple’s Intel-based computers (March 28, 2006)
Propellerhead Software AB is pleased to announce the next beta of Reason 3.0.5 for Intel-Mac computers as a Universal Binary application. Reason 3.0.5 offers full native compatibility with Apple’s Intel-based computers, but does not add any new features to the program. Beta testing has commenced and the new version will ultimately be offered as a free download for registered users. No shipping date has been set.
Propellerhead is very pleased with the fact that former performance issues have been solved and have lead to one single convenient application as a Universal Binary – an application that runs natively on both PowerPC Macs and the new Intel based Macs. This has been achieved without performance penalties on either platform. The new beta replaces the former beta, which have been separate applications.
Propellerhead Software is looking for good men and women 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 with a keen eye and a habit of breaking things.
Propellerhead Software has also updated the 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 as Reason 3.0.5 ships. The new version of ReWire called 2.5, also sports significant performance enhancements when loading samples into Reason, in a ReWire session.
