Propellerhead Software today announced that for limited time owners of its flagship Record–Reason Duo product will be able to purchase the Reason 6 upgrade at whatever price they choose, starting at $1.00 / €1.00.
“Every time Propellerhead make an update, this triggers an interesting and healthy pricing discussion among our customers,“ says Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO. “So, this time were turning the tables and leaving the decision to the musicians themselves. We have built what we think is a really valuable update, including, among other things, three super high-quality effect devices that alone are well worth our regular upgrade price, but that’s just what we think. The decision is now yours.”
The Pay What You Want offer for the Reason 6 upgrade is extended to all registered owners of both Record and Reason (Duo) with a Propellerhead Ignition Key. The promotion starts upon Reason 6’s release on September 30 and goes through October 31, 2011. Duo users may purchase the upgrade as a download directly from Propellerhead’s online store propellerheads.se/shop, paying from €1.00/$1.00 to anything they choose.
