Cubase 7.5 + Reason (Rewire)

Hey there,
I just bought the new Cubase 7.5 Version and wanne use it with Reason 4 throuh Rewire (both 32bit). Now I have the problem that there is a strange crackling noise at the beginning everytime I play a sound in the Sample Browser of Reason (Redrum) and Cubase 7.5 and Reason doesnt really work sync sometimes. Also the sound always interrupts everytime I play the whole arrangement and change a sound in Reason Redrum during that. I used to work with Ableton and Reason and there was no interruption or crackling noise at all.

Does anybody work with Cubase 7.5 (or just 7) and similar setup and have problems too?

My system: Win7, i5, 8gb, ssd, Tc electronic konnekt 6 firewire interface with latest driver

Thanks!

Hello XtotheZ,

Have you contacted Propellerhead? Maybe Reason 4 is not compatible with Cubase 7.5 I doubt that they have tested it with Cubase 7 or higher.
I have checked and Cubase 7.5 is working with Reason 6 and 7.

Best regards,
GN

Im waiting for feedback from Propellerheads now...
I've tried it with the Demo of the latest Reason Essentials 2 + Cubase 7.5 (both 32bit), didnt work right too. After that I've tried it with Cubase Version 5 and it works perfectly, so it seems like there is a problem with the new version of Cubase and the older version of Reason...

I can not make Cubase 7.5 and Reason 7 connect through Rewire. It doesn't sync up, and midi ports are not available. Very strange.

I am having the same problem. Have been using these programs for years, but now with 7.5 I can't get them (reason and cubase) to link up.

Hello,

And have you contacted support, both Steinberg and Propellerhead? Unfortunately I only have Reason 6 so I cannot test it.
Are you sure both versions are either 32 or 64 bits?

Best regards,

Hey there,
still having the problem. I wrote Propellerheads 3 times now but no reply... Dont know why. Steinberg support sent me a link for Cubase 5.5 and it works perfect with Reason. I have also installed the latest update 7.5.10 for Cubase, still having the same problems with Rewire. But it seems like I'm not alone with the problem... Did somebody hit up Propellerheads too and asked for help?

PS: Both versions are 32bit

Hey,

Would you mind give me the information they sent you for Cubase 5.5? I can't get this to rewire either with Reason 7, both running in 32 bit mode.

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased cubase 7.5 and I had reason 7.1. When I tried to rewire them, at first it didn't work out. So I came to this forum and saw other people having the same "not synching" problem. So I decided to play with it. And guess what??? It worked perfectly in both 32 and 64 bit modes.

So, here what did the same exact way in both modes:

1. Open reason in your preferred mode at first, then close it, quit.

2. Open Cubase in the same 32 or 64 bit mode as you opened reason.

3. Then launch reason rewire from cubase and activate L & R channels.

4. Launch Reason, and voila!!!

They should be working well in sync.

Let me know if anyone needs more help.

Good luck!

Hey there,
I've tried what you wrote @pianist80, but it still doesnt work for me. Do u have to do these steps everytime u rewire the programs? Do you have an older Reason Version u could try and tell me if that works for u with Cub 7.5?

Also I've installed the Cubase 7.5.2 Update but no difference, Im still having issues when I select sounds (wavs) in the Reason Samplebrowser with "autoplay" that I have to play it twice to hear the full sounds, like its not in sync with Cubase. I dont have these problems with the older Cubase 5.5 Version.

@garethmoss They sent me a link for Cubase 5.5 download, u can use it with ur 7.5 License. If u like I can dm it to you.

I have problems to with crackling. Go to devices and device setup check if your audio asio is the tc electronic asio.
I have problems running on win 7 to (better win 7 ultimate)
I have a Hp Compaq i5 8 gig ram. I have problems my system drops the card(M-audio)
We have problems to on mac mini running Cubase 7.5 with reason 6 even they have given us all advice trough propeller-head we can't solve that problem neither.
Try disabling the pc's audio-card and see if it solves the problem. You have to run all your sounds trough the TC electronic.

hope it helps.

Are you sure that you have installed Reason 32 bits? When you open the Task Manager reason should read "Reason (32bit)" under the process list.

I use Cubase 7.5 + Reason 7.1 NO problems recently with that combination.. I also used various other versions like Cubase 5 and Reason 5 a while ago, no real issues to speak of.

Midi from Cubase into Reason should work very well, but unfortunately Cubase will forget the send outputs at times ... (only bummer).

So if you want to use both to work do something like keep all midi parts in Reason for use in Reason, and Cubase midi in Cubase for VI there.

If you get that crackly sound, then increase your Audio Buffer size.

/peace
