Rapture issue with Propellerhead Reason 10.2 DAW
I am a long-term Rapture (not Rapture Pro) user. I love this synth, and think I have all of the available sound banks for it. Traditionally, I used the 32-bit version of Rapture with Music Creator 6. However, I have changed DAWs and so had to have the 64-bit version of Rapture, which I downloaded and installed some time back.
Rapture 64-bit works fine as a standalone instrument on my desktop, and also works in Cakewalk (formerly Sonar) although in the latter, I can't be certain which version of Rapture is loading. I assume it is the 64-bit version, though, since Cakewalk is also 64-bit.
But I would really like Rapture to work with Propellerhead Reason 10.2, because Reason's workflow tends to suit me better than Cakewalk / Sonar's. However, Rapture 64-bit doesn't work correctly with Reason - Reason picks it up as a VST without difficulty and it is available in the instrument rack, so I can load it as an instrument, but when I try to open the Rapture interface to load a preset, nothing happens. It just won't open.
Anyone else encountered this? (I do realise that probably there are not too many Reason users here!) Or, if anyone has Rapture and Reason working together, any ideas what I may have done wrong? I found the install instructions for Rapture 64-bit a bit ambiguous in places when they asked for where certain elements of Rapture 32-bit were located, so maybe I have assigned some incorrect location. But if that were true, I would have thought it probably wouldn't work at all.
And before anyone suggests it, yes, , Reason is quirky; it won't work properly with 'JBridged' 32-bit VSTs, so maybe it's just Reason being unreasonable, but I would love to solve this and get one of my two absolute favourite synths back.
