Pro Tools LE 7.4.2 on my Mac running OSX Leopard will not detect Reason 3.0.4.

I have done the following:

  • Installed reason first, then Protools
  • Started a new session
  • Created an aux input, instr. input, and MIDI input
  • Then launched Reason

However, reason is not showing up under the plugin in drop down menu. It is not in either multi-channel or multi-mono.

I know that this is possible but why is it not working for me?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

is there anyway you can get a more recent version of protools? One thing I've found is that ReWire has some problems with compatibility between older versions of software. I had to buy an upgrade to Melodyne when the older version my friend gave me wasn't compatible with any of the DAWs I switch between – Travis Dtfsu Crum Oct 11 '12 at 13:03

I know this is pretty old but you will need to go and update your version of Reason to 3.0.5. Per the proppellerhead website:

This is a mac-only update designed to bring Intel Mac compatibility to Reason. This update also includes the latest version of ReWire, so non-Intel mac users still benefit a lot from this update. With the new ReWire, Reason's sample loading times are dramaticly reduced when working in a rewire session.
