Allright! Reason Studios just announced Reason 12.6 and the two big things here are offline mode (allowing you to make beats fully off the grid… or you know, in places with bad or non-existent wifi) and native support for Apple Silicon M1/M2 processors, promising huge performance improvements on modern Macs.
Although Reason runs well with Rosetta on Apple Silicon computers, it adds an overhead that reduces performance. It may also create unwanted behaviour when using the Reason Rack Plugin since the host needs to run in Rosetta mode. This update removes all that friction by finally being able run natively on modern Macs.
