Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Reaper is nothing like Reason. It is waay more customizable. Probably more similar to Logic/Studio One. Reaper isnt the prettiest program but the look can be changed to look pretty nice. And v5 doesn't look halfway bad. V1 looked worse than a 90s DAW though. Yeah, I’m now convinced Reaper is not th...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Considering that Reaper is still on version 5 I'm firmly convinced we are now in an alternate reality and I'm just being used as fuel in some Marix type dystopian nightmare! 8O Here's a Cockos list of jpgs of version 0 to 2.

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

I didn't really use it until 4, but I'm getting the impression you're mixing it up with Plogue Bidule maybe? I’ve never heard of Plogue Bidule (until now). I’m almost certain it was Reaper, because I remember the name struck me as suspiciously similar to Reason (and the concept of the app itself wa...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

The value is insane. Right now, you can 'demo' Reaper host Equator or Cypher 2 etc. and you get full MPE support rewired into Live. Not to mention the rest of Reaper as a package. I'm going to bet Reaper eventually comes out with a VST version after rewire disappears entirely, then we're stuck with...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

I've heard rumors that some of the new security features in Mac OS Catalina will break Rewire, this may have something to do with the change. This doesn't seem likely to be true. ReWire is just a protocol for apps to talk to each other that specific apps opt into by loading a shared library; the op...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Rewire v1.8.7 build 145 So yeah, not 2.0. It gets installed by various apps, even Live will instal rewire into your system etc. It's not built in, as much as added to the instal. Some application I used installed an older version over the latest version for instance, which had me have to actually g...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Having used the beta for a few days now, I think I have to concede they should have kept ReWire around, at least for now. The one downside of the Reason rack plugin is it's meant to be used as a single instrument (or effect chain, for the effect version). This means you need a separate instance of t...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Personally I still can't figure out why a newer v2.0 turbo charged version of Rewire wasn't worked on? The version we’ve been using for the past 15 years already was ReWire 2.0 (I’ve forgotten the details by now, but according to the only official info I can still find, it added “MIDI streaming and...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

One of the main advantages of rewire is/was that you could work on a song in Live, then move to Logic, DP etc. to finish it without having to move all audio, MIDI, instruments etc. to the other DAW. Live 10 allows users to even use Push 2 as a controller for Live while it's in slave mode. Reaper al...

That said the VST mode has severe limitations. […] Also the Rack doesn't host VSTs. Probably not a big deal for a program like Live that has Racks, but for other DAWS, this omission is pretty bad as it kind of weakens applications for the Combinator.
Reason doesn’t host VSTs in ReWire mode either.

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

1. Pattern automation of Redrum, Matrix, Drum Sequencer (I dont see this being easier to do in Live as Reason created pattern automation lanes specifically for these devices). Drag and drop of midi files would fix this though. Also Drum Racks is overall better than Reason Redrum, but I'm not sure i...

Can someone please explain why this is better than Rewire? I don’t know much of anything about vst and why this is better. Does it free up cpu load?
You don’t have to run two separate apps and keep switching back and forth between them. And yes, this will use less CPU.

The trick still works.
I meant it won’t work with Reason Rack Plugin, since you rely on a VST and the Rack Plugin doesn’t support VSTs.

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

I always hoped they made some reason favorite devices like redrum, scream and dr octo Rex into a vst/audio units plug-in so happy to see these back as plug-ins into ableton. Before i used ableton and reason in rewire mode but didn't,t like saving one composition in 2 different DAW,s. Lets see if th...

Re: It;s a good time to be a Live & Reason user....

Oh another reason (sorry) to keep Rwire alive...I still use Live 9 (no VST3 support) and the AU plugin (I'm on Mac) is still vaporware. Technically the VST3 version isn't out yet either. They said the AU version will be released later this year. In the meantime you can either keep using Reason 10, ...
