Reason 7 not showing in Pro Tools 11

Hi guys. Long time reader but I've just signed up now to post for the first time because I can't for the life of me find an answer to this on either these forums or indeed the entire net.

I am running both Pro Tool 11 and Reason 7 on Mac OS X. Both work flawlessly as standalone applications in 64 bit yet when I try to rewire them I get no love.

I create a strereo Aux channel (or instrument channel) in Pro Tools, then go Inserts > Multi-Channel Plugins > Instrument, the only thing that shows is Waves Rewire, no Reason.

I've reinstalled both programs fresh so I'm really at a loss. If I manually open Reason while Pro Tools 11 is open I don't get any sound and can't press play as it recognises that it's in Rewire mode but it's obviously not working and I can't control it from PT because there is no actual Rewire option.

Any clues at all would be amazing. I've tried holding down shift when starting PT as I read that it forces the system to rescan for plugins but absolutely nothing happens when I hold down shift.

Thanks in advance!

Rewire only works on 32 bit version of reason.

You sure? I triple checked that before purchasing...

From the Propellerhead FAQ

Reason 7 FAQ - Propellerhead

Q: Is ReWire 64-bit too?
A: Just as the current versions of Reason and Reason Essentials, ReWire is 64-bit too. Note that 64-bit ReWire needs to be implemented in both the slave application (Reason, Reason Essentials) and your host. Please contact the manufacturer of your ReWire host of choice for compatibility information.

As an update. I have seen this workaround:

The problem I had with Reason 7 not showing up in Pro Tools 11 was solved by simply deleting the "InstalledAAXPlugIns" file.

On OS X, that file is located here:

<your user>/Library/Preferences/Avid/Pro Tools

Once I deleted that file, and then launched Pro Tools 11 again, Pro Tools did a full rescan of all the installed plugins and then it finally saw that Reason 7 was installed. It seems to be a bug in Pro Tools 11 regarding the use of Rewire.

Unfortunately for me, in preferences there is no folder called Avid.

If I use spotlight to search for the file ("InstalledAAXPlugIns") that needs to be deleted, nothing shows up either.

Hmmm just got home from work, installed both on my Win8 PC and they work flawless.

Looks like I might just have to reformat the Mac which should be fun considering I'm such a dunce with Macs. If anyone does have any tips though as far as deleting that elusive file I'd love to hear still!

Just wanted to chime in and confirm that this worked for me. In my case, Reason 6.5 with PT11 - Mac OS 10.8.5. Had to Google the procedure to show the hidden user library folder (one line of code in Terminal) but after trashing the "InstalledAAXPlugIns" file and restarting PT11 the Reason ReWire plug-in appeared.

I am having this same problem. Have newest version of Reason 7. About to update to newest version of Pro Tools 10 and 11. Will test again after install but i dont have high hopes. Have talked to reason but they are saying they havent heard of this problem...only i have seen it all over the internet!

We have no difinitive answer other than the "find 'installedAAX' file and delete", which as quoted above is no longer in the same place in Mac OS Mavericks

Please bump until we get a difinitive solution!

Hi gearslutz FAM I have a question for Mac users running pro tools 11 and reason 7.
How do you manually rewire pro tools with reason it use to be automatic when you create a rewire track and in insert go to instrument choose reason and you would be on and popping but now can't seem to get it to work like that anymore and I don't know how to manually rewire. Please FAM I need your help with this Thanks

Rewire 7 and PT11.1.2 are working great for me on a mac mini running 10.9.1

Bigalsmuzik , please explain your problem more. What exactly doesn't work?
Do you get midi signal to reason? Is reason not rewiring and synced to pro tools playback? Is there no audio showing in pro tools but reason rewires syncs and show signal?

One annoying hiccup I had was the rewire output in pro tools had to be manually set to outputs 1/2 in pro tools or I did not get sound. I don't remember having to do that in version 10, it would just default to the correct output and playback when I inserted rewire.

Reason 7 and pro tools 11 both function fine in stand alone mode the problem comes in when I try to slave reason7 with pro tools 11, pro tools will launch reason 7 it just won't slave it so when I press play in pro tools it does not play the reason tracks,(no sound) and I do not know how to hook it up manually to get the sound from reason 7 to record in pro tools. In other words I,m trying to track my song out of reason 7 in to pro tools 11 so a can mix it down. So if you know how to do it manually could you please tell me step by step and where the hell is pitch shift in pro tools 11 it's one of my favorite plugins.

I presume you have the aax rewire plugin, have checked reason is running in 64 bit, and have switched the outputs on the rewire plugin to pro tools 1/2 outs? I have a feeling your running reason in 32 bit mode. On a mac right click on the reason app icon and get info. Make sure the "Open in 32-bit mode" button is not checked off.

Sounds like pro tools is opening reason when you insert a the rewire plugin. I would read the link below and double check your setting are correct.

Let me start off by saying thanks for your help. I've done everything you've suggested making sure pro tool and reason are in 64bit mode
And they are I've even tried removing the installed axx in my library in the avid folder and when I delete it and restart pro tools it's there again for some strange reason just can't get it to stay gone like its a bug. I,m a newbie when it comes to pro tools so I don't fully understand when you say check and make sure the the 1/2 out are switched. Please walk me thru that procedure so I can make sure that's not my problem. I really need to get rewire to function. I do all my beats in reason 7 and the track them out into pro tools 11. I also noticed that pro tools 11 just shuts down on its own in the middle of a session strange indeed. I guess avid really needs to release a update to deal with some of these issues. Thanks

how to access user library in Mac OS 10.9

I had to delete the InstalledAAXPlugins file and restart ProTools to find the Reason plugin file.

to see files in your user library:
1) make sure you are in the Finder
2) hold down the Option key either before or after you click on the Go menu.
3) you should now see an item in the list called "Library", this is your user library.
4) if you select Library, you can then navigate to Library>Preferences>Avid>Pro Tools where you will find the InstalledAAXPlugins file.
5) delete this file. The next time you start Pro Tools, it will rescan for Plugins, find the Reason plugin, and create a new InstalledAAXPlugins file
