Ok, i might as well be honest to get the answer i need, hope someone can help!!

Im going from a cracked version of reason 4 to a legit copy.

Problem is, i have no idea how to delete the license off my mac.

I have tried completely uninstalling reason and ive been through the library into app support and the receipts folder and deleted anything reason related, but it still stores the cracked key?!?

How do a delete my license key so i can use my legit key? Can anyone help? I dont know where else to look!

try a fresh install of your OS ;) that will get rid of everything ;)
Thanks for your answer, but there must be an easier way than this?

Is there a location where a license key might be stored on my mac that im not checking?

Try searching for it in Terminal:

Code:
sudo find / -type f -exec grep -i -l -e '<insert portion of key here>' {} \;
Can you tell me typically what sort of format license key files are.

Im new to Mac you see

I second giving AppZapper a go. It works amazingly well for me, and has removed all associated preference files along with the app in question for me.

Also you might as well go ahead and buy AppZapper-it's only like $10, and you'll find yourself using it over and over again.

like i said, try re-installing you OS, it really isnt any harder then popping a disc in the drive click a few buttons and leave for an hour or so ;)
