Reason 6

I am desperate. Please help if you can.

I cannot get my CB6 to work with with Reason 6. Both are running in 32 bit mode.

I keep getting an error message saying “Engine not responding” “Please check your rewire host”

I am using a Mac running OSX 10.6.8.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Mate,
Check in your Cubase 6 folder that you have the file Rewire.dll in there?
If not go to your reason 6 folder and copy it over.

This worked for me.

Hope it helps


I am using OSX, where do I find the .dll files?

On Mac OS X, please try this:

  • Close all applications.
  • On your system partition (not in your user/home folder) go to Library > Application Support and move the folder “Propellerhead Software” to the Desktop.
  • Still in Application Support delete the file “ReWire”.
  • Start Reason stand-alone. The missing files will be restored.
  • Quit Reason.
  • Next time you start Cubase Reason should be again available as a ReWire device.

If you have other ReWire slaves in use there might be corresponding ReWire files in the Propellerhead Software folder on your Desktop. It might be necessary to move them to the newly created Propellerhead Software folder in Application Support to make sure that the other slaves will work, too. Otherwise, you can simply delete the folder on the Desktop.

Good Luck!
