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?

  • 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

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.
