Propellerhead has always been a software company. But with the release of Reason 6, they realized they needed an interface designed to integrate with their software â€” and Balance was born! Balance is a compact 2-channel USB 2.0 interface for Mac or Windows. Itâ€™s designed to provide the hub for your studio. Hook up all your gear and set it on your desktop; youâ€™ll never need to move a cable. I had a chance to see a sneak preview of Balance in action, and I was very impressed â€” simple, ergonomic, compact, but full featured. Plus, Balance serves as the ignition key for authorizing your software, and it comes with Reason Essentials; all for less than $500.
Balance is tightly integrated into Reason 6 and makes an ideal interface for desktop studios. If youâ€™re a Reason user, youâ€™ll want this one.
