Sync Propellerhead Reason
All this statement are made and verified with Windows Reason 6.
But we can assume that it also should work with most versions before. - Maybe some name conventions / dialog names are slightly different ...
You can sync Propellerheads Reason only as slave with MidiRealtime/Clock.
For details about synchronisation please also read carefully Chapter 'Synchronisation and advanced MIDI' of the Reason Manual.
Sub-Chapter - ' Synchronisation to MIDI Clock ' for Synchronizing via Midi (1)
Sub-Chapter 'Slaving Reason to an external MIDI application or instrument' for Synchronizing Reason to External Midi Devices (3)
Synchronizing via Midi (1)
DarkTime can sync to Reason only with MidiRealtime events , means MidiClock.
DarkTime as Master = (3) Synchronizing Reason to External Midi DevicesReason can receive Midi Realtime Messages (Midi Start,Stop,Cont & Midi Clock) from DarkTime.
So Connect DarkTime to Reason ( see DarkTime as Master )

- Go to Reason's edit menu (Mac OS X, the Reason menu) and open Preference Dialog.
- Click the Advanced Tab.
