I’m a big Reason fan since version 1.5. With version 5 (including Record 1.5, also from Propellerhead) & planning to do more live with Reason I was looking for a rewire-host which could make my set-up more flexible (without changing from Reason to Ableton’s Live, don’t get me wrong, Live is an amazing app but Reason’s GUI is more my cup of tea). In Renoise I found the tool to master & control not only Reason/Record but also guitar-amp-modelers (mainly PRG change) & midi controlled video-apps.
So far the introduction, the reason I’m posting is that after I upgraded to Renoise 2.6 as soon as it had turned gold I noted that rewire didn’t work properly. First I tried to open a song which I had already made in Renoise 2.5.1 but it couldn’t recognise the rewire-devices. But also creating a new song & trying rewire set-up was futile. After closing Renoise I discoverd that Reason couldn’t start due to Rewire issues, even after I restarted my MacBook Pro.
Pretty soon I discovered that the renoise.rewire file was from the same date as the rewire.bundle file (for Mac in the folder: Library/Application Support/Propellerhead Software/Rewire). So what I did was starting Time-Machine for my latest back-up prior to the last Renoise install, put the rewire.bundle file back in place and everything was working like a charm again within less then 10 seconds. A reinstall of Reason probably could have done the trick as well but this fix saved me the (re)installing time.
Maybe this post will help other Reason-Record-Renoise freaks like me, cheers.
