You will need to enable more than two outputs (two outputs is the default install) in Reason.
Go to EDIT | PREFERENCES | AUDIO and update the Active output channels (middle of the page) to include more outputs. For example, I enabled outputs 3+4 in addition to the normal stereo output (1+2). You can then use outputs 3+4 to interact with the Orion.

Route the direct output of the MIX item (guitar for example) that you want to compress to output 3 (or 3+4 if you need stereo).

In your Orion routing screen - (assuming you used Audio output 3+4) route USB or TB PLAY (you didn't indicate which you are using) 3+4 to AFX IN 3+4 - then route AFX OUT 3+4 to USB or TB REC 3+4.

setup your FX in the Orion Effects screen on slots 3+4

In Reason route Audio Inputs 3+4 (which is the return from Orion FX) to a new mix channel and use the new mix channel to adjust how much of the return signal you want.

DUDE YOU ARE BLESSING!!!! WORKED LIKE A CHARM! It makes perfect sense! I don't know why I didn't think of this. Thanks!
