Reason 9 any problems for offline producers?

Greetings, has anyone had problems with Reason 9 using their offline computer? They seem to not support the offline since R8, this is really frustrating, and I let Protools go and I am definitely thinking of letting Reason go because I am not going to put my offline computer online just to down load...

Gear Porn thread - pics of your slutty setups

This is the most recent configuration. That 3-tier Boutique stand from eBay really brings the 3 devices together. I have those arranged in the order of Rebirth and I use Reason 9.5 for the DAW. I use the pony and Unison a lot on the SH-01A as it offers something the other Monos cannot.

Automate the randomization of a pattern

...idea to perform this process with the basic modules of Reason or is there a RE? or a VST maybe? I'm on Reason 9.5, maybe the update to Reason 10 would allow me to have a sequencer with these faculties Thank you for your suggestions and feedback on the subject. (And sorry for my english..)
