Default Cannot download free Refills from Reason\'s site?

I registered my copy of Reason Adapted 2.5 with Propellerheads online.I then proceeded to the 'Non Commercial Refills' part of the site to download (please don't laugh)the 'virtual djembe'and a couple of their free piano sounds.I am then directed to a screen that tells me that I did not have access to that part of the site because I wasn't registered.I emailed support,and they said,since I only had Reason Adapted,there were only certain things I could use from the site,so my access was denied.I understand I don't posess a full copy of Reason (and therefore,no Combinator or Maelstrom,etc),but I feel more than a bit slighted that the 4 or 5 things I can legitimately use have been witheld willfully by them.My question to my fellow DUCs:anyone have any similar issues with these folks?Hey,it might be 2 bits that I contributed to their market research by registering,but,my contention is,since they promise you free sounds if you register,why am I not entitled to my 2 bits worth of free sounds for my trouble???

Because you are using Adapted 2.5, the company's teaser application. Adapted 2.5 can't even use refills anyway, so it wouldn't make any difference even if you could.

It's their way of making you want to spend the money to upgrade to the full product.

Now Adapted 3.0, that's a different story; they have what they are calling a "tastefill" that is the first refill ever for an adapted version, but it's only available for the Adapted 3.0

It's still meant to make you want to spend your money on the full version. (It's worth it, though, IMHO).
