3. In the ReWire window, you will see that Cubase SX/SL can activate up to 64 individual channels of ReWire. This can lead to some extremely complex routing, with both virtual effects and synths. Assuming this is your first time using ReWire, this example is simple and just uses Reason's main mix. Activate the first pair of ReWire channels (called Mix L and Mix R) by clicking on the dark green bars located in the middle of the window. Close the ReWire window. Open the Cubase mixer by pressing the F3 key on your keyboard. Notice that a new stereo channel has been opened. Also notice that the track classification logo is different from the logo on your mixer's other tracks (see Figure 17.4). Launch Reason. Once it has launched, look at the Audio Out device in the Reason Device Rack. Notice that Reason is now set to ReWire Slave Mode, which means that Reason will follow or chase to Cubase. Also notice that the tempo of Reason's built-in song is set to the same tempo as Cubase. Click on Play in either Reason or Cubase. Switch over to Cubase. On the mixer, you should now see the active ReWire channels lit up with joy. The Reason mix is playing straight through it, as shown in Figure 17.5. Click on Stop. 4. 5. 6. 7. Figure 17.4 Cubase creates a specific ReWire channel on its virtual mixer. Figure 17.5 Reason is now following Cubase in sample- accurate sync.
