I am trying to get Renoise to work as a Rewire slave in the OSX version of Reaper, and it is not showing up in the list of plugins I can use in the FX menu. I have tried both 32 and 64 bit versions of both programs, in case it is a problem with crossing the bit bridge. Also, I can run 2.7 and install Rewire during it’s initial startup, and it seems to work fine, but when I install 2.8’s Rewire, it is simply not detected by Reaper. I also tried using the Presonus Studio 1 demo to see if it would detect it, and Renoise as a Rewire slave is not listed. Renoise does work as Rewire host though.
Still having a problem with this on the final release. Tried doing it with Logic as master and Renoise fails to run as a slave. I even tried reinstalling my OS to get this to work. It’s not a bit barrier problem because it fails whether I set both to run in 64 or 32 bits. Renoise 2.8 works as ReWire Master, it just does not work at all as a slave.
I am using a 2009 Mac Mini, running OSX Lion. Renoise 2.7 works fine as a Rewire Slave.
Any updates on this? I am using Logic as the ReWire host, and it set to the correct bit depth. I get the following error in both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Renoise 2.8.0:
============================================================ Version : Renoise ReWire Engine V1.0.0 (Jun 30 2011) Date : 2012-05-22 Time : 00:41:17 OS : Mac OS X 10.7.3 (i386) ============================================================ Engine loaded... Engine is initializing... Fatal Error: Failed to initialize the ReWire Device (Error: 'Failed to create the connection event'). Please try to restart the ReWire host and try loading the ReWire Device again. Engine released... Closing log file...
However in 2.7.2 it seems to run just fine:
============================================================ Version : Renoise ReWire Engine V1.0.0 (Jun 30 2011) Date : 2012-05-22 Time : 00:41:45 OS : Mac OS X 10.7.3 (i386) ============================================================ Engine loaded... Engine is initializing... Setting/updating sample rate to: 48000...
Between both of these examples I am opening and closing Renoise once with the Rewire host closed to get the Rewire engine installed.
Any idea why the ReWire engine will not initialize in 2.8.0? Is there something tricky I can do to get this to work? Grouping looks ideal for sending tracks to ReWire busses and I’m just itching to try some of the new MIDI tools for Renoise.
Still having the same problem with 2.8.1. I have two computers exhibiting the same issue. Therefore I can’t be the only one experiencing it. The latest versions of Renoise are as good as unusable to me as long as this bug remains unfixed.
This is so weird… On windows 7 rewire is working great… You re-installed your operating system, to try and get this to work? have you ever downloaded and installed this on its own?
I would try installing the demo of reason, or installing this rewire update I linked, or both…
I suspect when installing the ReWire driver during Renoise installation (or When Renoise is started after installation), some conflict occurs here.
I have seen advises to uninstall all Renoise versions and install the latest to enforce the latest ReWire driver to be installed correctly, but that’s not a guarantee that this works 100%.
I would have thought that too, but i got this error after reinstalling my OS, when Renoise 2.8 was the very first version of Renoise I installed.
Well, for one thing, I have stopped using Reaper and have gone on to using Logic. Logic only runs as Master. Also, I have ran Renoise as master multiple times in order to install the ReWire driver. There is something broken within Renoise’s ReWire driver that makes it crash. Again, this problem only started with 2.8, 2.7.2 works perfectly.
Also, I am willing to bet I would have the same problem with Reaper that I was having earlier too, because it’s very very likely the issue is related.
So you installed the Reason demo?
I am happy to report that I think I have figured out the cause of the problem.
I followed a hunch and tried reinstalling OSX, and this time reformatted the HD with case-sensitivity turned off. I am pretty sure that there is something about case-sensitive formatted OSX partitions that cause the Rewire driver to act screwy in 2.8.
