Stockholm, Sweden (July 11, 2005)–Propellerhead Software has announced the immediate availability of Reason version 3.0.3, a maintenance release that addresses several issues in Reason 3.0.
Additional features added to Reason 3.0.3 include:
-Enhanced performance. The code has been optimized to deliver better performance than in Reason 3.0.
-Added Remote support for Frontier Design Group’s TranzPort wireless controller and the M-Audio Ozonic FireWire keyboard.
-Remote SDK. The Remote technology has changed the way software and hardware controllers interact. Propellerhead Software have now created a 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.
During development of Reason 3, the application was continuously tested with pre-release versions of Tiger to ensure compatibility. Reason users can with confidence upgrade to Tiger, since there are no known compatibility issues. 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 31st, 2005.
