    Yes, you can!

    On Mac OS X, the Reason application itself includes both 32-bit and 64-bit resources. This means the program will run in 32-bit or 64-bit depending on your operating system - you don't actually need to do anything when installing the software.

    It might be desirable to run the 32-bit version even under a 64-bit OS (for example if you're using Reason with ReWire and a host that only supports 32-bit ReWire). In this case, you can force the program to run in 32-bit mode in the following way:

    1. Select the Reason application.
    2. Select "Get Info" from the File menu in Mac OS X.
    3. In the Info dialog, tick the "Open in 32-bit mode" checkbox.

    When you now launch Reason it will run in 32 bit mode.

    Does anyone know how to do this with reason 6.5 in windows 7? I can't find anything about 32 bit mode in the properties of the reason .exe file.

    Hi All,

    I found a solution hopefully this works for everyone!

    I am running Live 8 and Reason 7 on a Mac and OS Lion and after upgrading to Reason 7 I couldn't get Live to work using Rewire 

    It is because Reason 7 by default runs on 64bit whereas Ableton 8 Runs at 32bit - Both the Master and the Slave need to run at the same bit rate for Rewire to work.

    Solution:

    First go to the Reason 7 icon in your applications 

    Right click then select "get info"

    A menu will appear now select "open in 32 bit mode"

    Now make sure Reason and Ableton are fully closed (including quitting in the dock) 

    Now start Ableton First, then start Reason after Ableton has loaded 

    Worked for me hope it works for you also!

    thanks so much ... this totally fixed my problem. Wasn't seeing Reason as an option on MIDI Out drop down, but changed reason to 32bit and boom! now I see it in Ableton. Thanks again.

    Is your Reason 6 running in 64 bit mode? If yes it wont rewire. Please run it in 32 bit mode in order to rewire with Ableton Live 8. Hope this helps

    Agree! My rewire problem(Ableton 8.3) was solved once I selected the 32 bit mode option in Reason 6.
