Hi I have been using Adobe Audition mostly in the past to mix and record things, I havent recorded anything for a few years now and I used to use windows XP. Now I am on windows 7, and I can get Reason via Rewire working in Adobe Audition 3.0, but guitar rig and amplitube are greyed out as VSTs... I can get Amplitube working in Audition CS5 but.... I can't seem to find rewire for Reason!

In short : I want some mixing software that is compatible with Reason AND the Amplitube VST (or Guitar Rig)

If I recall correctly, Reason does not and never intends to support 3rd party VSTs.

Cubase an option? Btw, never upgrade to windows 7, it sucks for music production/recording. Unless you find a way to setup your pc in a way that it doesnt use 10000000 resources for useless stuff. I still stick to XP and at the moment i use amplitube 3 and build in cubase effects.

I think I have a copy of a lite version of cubase lying around somewhere I might investigate. Im gonna install XP tomorrow anyway on my spare hard drive.
I honestly can't remember how to set everything up.. NEED HELP.
I have an external USB soundcard (with mic + MIDI + Guitar inputs) And an X-fi Music internal soundcard (which I believe is faster). Should I just use the USB soundcard as the main device for all the music programs via ASIO4ALL?
And is it a daft idea to just try and use the USB soundcard as a fancy way of getting my guitar/mic plugged into the line in? (which I don't think is possible in windows 7 as there is a stupid 100ms delay)

I can't seem to get amplitube to recognise the inputs in either Reaper or Audition 3.0 as a VST, but the standalone version works fine with exactly the same settings

Well windows7 has a way of delaying everything, so i guess it is not possible in windows 7. I own a pretty expensive RME soundcard, which has build in memory and even that one has problems with windows7, so go figure lol. I dont know what Cubase Light has to offer, i guess it is the same thing but stripped down to a certain extent, i guess you will have VST options in it, so a program like amplitube would run.

You could go to device central/vst connections and make sure it is set to asio4all in your case, or just see for yourself which one is quicker. I always think usb means slow down, and straight into cpu is quickest way, or from preamp into cpu but since u dont have a preamp i would go straight i guess, but that is just my way of thinking. To me it seems usb means just another thing down the line to slow stuff down.
