For me the Reason Essentials version was simply too limited (especially compared to other "intro" software from Cubase, Ableton, Bitwig and so on) to do a real "in depth" and lengthy test run.
This Intro version however, gives me more than enough stuff to do a real realistic long enough trial. The missing rewire functionality is no problem for me. I never used this, and rather export audio from another DAW to mix it down in my trusty Cubase 9.5 (or do a end master in WaveLab Elements). But hey - Who knows. Maybe mixing down in Reason works for me too (as long as I can use my "to go" plug-ins from Izotope, FabFilter and so on).
If I like this Intro version I will probably upgrade to the full version. This, however, depends on the price this upgrade is going to cost me. I hope this will be a bit reason-able (yeah, lame joke - I know, I know).
So - I am going to buy Reason Intro within a few weeks. This new version really seems to be worth the money. I am looking forward to it. Nice!
Thanks for the kind words! The upgrade is the difference between buying Intro and the full version. So it's $299
