What works

As other people have mentioned, most things generally work.

 The only thing that really surprised me was that Reason is capable of running as a ReWire slave to 64bit REAPER, including MIDI and multiple channels of audio.

What does not

  • Splash screen is always on top and cannot be moved
  • The menubar isn't clickable
  • The rack window can be resized horizontally, which it shouldn't be.


What was not tested

Playing Reason directly via MIDI and wineasio.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:

I found that installing in a 64 bits prefix, the copy paste works.
Besides the menu being not clickable, the other thing that fails are the vertical texts on the rack.
