I finally received copies of Power Tools for Reason 3.0. What is it that people say? “Better late than never”!? — whatever. Anyways, thanks for everyones’ patience. I certainly hope that it’s worth the wait.
I’m fairly certain that I received these copies before the distributor, so it might be a few days before Amazon pre-orders are fulfilled. I may try to get copies available for direct sales if anyone simply needs a copy right away.
At first glance, it’s much thicker than the first edition - over 300 pages. The new cover image is pretty cool, especially with Hami’s combi skin spread across the little polygonal window. The CD-Rom envelope is improved, so there’s less of a chance of destroying the CD or the back cover. The layout is a little crammed in certain chapters, but the printing appears to be far superior than the first edition. The new illustrations look really clean with more detail.
