Below you will find the minimum requirements for running Reason:
! Note that these are the minimum requirements! You will benefit
from a fast computer with a lot of RAM, since this will allow you to
use more devices at the same time.

MacOS
Power Macintosh with 604, 604e, G3 or G4 processor or better (see the note below). 166 MHz or faster.
64 Megabytes of RAM.
CD-ROM drive.
MacOS 8.6 or later.
256 color monitor (or better), 800x600 or larger.
A MIDI interface and a MIDI keyboard (or similar).
OMS 2.x or later (included).

Reason takes advantage of the Altivec (Velocity Engine) instructions
used in the Macintosh G4 processors, which enhance performance.

Windows
Intel Pentium 2 or better. 233 MHz or faster.
64 Megabytes of RAM.
CD-ROM drive.
Windows 98, NT 4.0 or 2000 (or later).
256 color monitor (or better), 800x600 or larger.
A 16 bit Windows compatible audio card, preferably with an ASIO or DirectX driver. Microsoft DirectX (only if the card supports it).
A MIDI interface and a MIDI keyboard (or similar).

Hi, chris!

If you don't mind, would you be so kind on elaborating how to properly update to 1.0.1? Quoting your remark at Macintosh Garden:


--- Quote ---If installing the 1.0.1 update, after previously installing v1.0 you most likely will have to erase the extensions from the system folder as these files dont seem to be removed or overwritten properly when installing the 1.0.1 update.
--- End quote ---

We are basically referring to three extensions, right? Here are the differences between 1.0 and 1.0.1:

Reason Engine 1.0 (build 78) --> Reason Engine 1.0.1 (build 92)
ReWire 2.0.5 Version 1.2.5 (build 52) --> ReWire 2.2 Version 1.4 (build 60)
REX Shared Library (ReCycle) 2.0.0 Version 1.1.1 (build 17) --> REX Shared Library (ReCycle) 2.0.0 Version 1.2.1 (build 37)

So, just like you said, if one applies the patch to 1.0.1, the extensions at the system folder won't be overwritten.
That said, I deleted the aforementioned files from my Extensions folder and re-applied the patch. After that, the extensions were finally updated. But, at least in my case, whenever I try to run Reason 1.0.1 my computer freezes!
I tried to run the "patched" extensions on OS 8.6 and OS 9.2 and no luck... the system just freezes.
So, I had to revert to the old extensions to "fix" the program again. It runs fine, but the application version is naturally still 1.0 build 78.

Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

Not really, I've burned both ISOs (program disk and sound bak) to CDs.
