I ordered the new version of reason. Took me a while to get things all figured out... I needed to register an old product that I never registered! In order to do that I had to install it and activate it... ran into some issues on my Mac with that... But now that everything is all set and finally bought AND downloaded... I can't wait to get it all installed and running and to start using it! But that will have to wait since I'm going to sleep. So for this version (version 6) of Reason they decided to do a pay what you want deal for people who already owned pervious versions of Reason and Record. They wanted you to pay as much as you think the program was worth. If you wanted you could have put in as little as 1 dollar. I thought about this for some time. Should I just make out like a bandit and pay 1 dollar? Or should I pay half what the update usually costs? Or should I just pay the full update price?
I decided to pay the same amount that my previous upgrades were. Which was 150 dollars. I think that even though I COULD have put in 1 dollar I decided to just pay the same amount that the regular upgrade would have cost because I really do enjoy using the program and I feel like it's worth every penny. I also know that a lot of people spent time and effort in creating the software. So I definitely thought that it was only right to pay the regular amount that it normally costs.
In every decision that I make I always try to think about the other side of the decision... I know sometimes I don't always do that... but I really try to catch myself as best I can. So I mean flip the tables and think if I were selling something I worked hard at making... I 'd want someone to give me a fair price for it. I think that it's really hard to price ones own worth... but I definitely think that as far as the flip side of all those software developers and as well all the employees who work to make Reason happen... they deserve to get paid for their work.
So yes... I could have just put 1 dollar in. Or I could have put in half of what it normally costs to upgrade. But, I just didn't think it would be fair to do that.
