Balance and Reason 6.5 not working
Can anyone tell me why my new Balance isn't working? I have Reason 6.5 and hooked it up. Do I need to install Reason Essentials first?

Usb 2 or 3?

O.k sorry. More info.... I hooked up Balance, started up Reason 6.5. The lights are on etc. But there's no sound coming into my headphones. My laptop speaker keeps recording the audio instead. I have tried changing the audio input, but it just says ' Audio device not working'. I have it set to ASIO4ALL. I have also tried every Usb slot out as well. Because my headphones have the small end on them I plugged the bigger one onto it, but I have used a stereo plug. Should I be using a mono one. Would that make any difference? Thank so much.

Have you done the settings in Reason preferences?

I just figured it out. Can you believe I had to download the driver's first. Well at least this noob is learning something new everyday. Some instructions in the box might have been helpful. It's too time consuming looking up the PDF. lol. Thank you for your suggestion. All you guys rock!

Wasn't there a sticker over the USB port telling you to install the drivers before connecting the interface?

Well it just said to install Reason Essentials first, and I ignored that because I had 6.5 running. So that's the reason hey?

Yep, the drivers are on the dvd and install along with Reason Essentials. As you found out they are also available on their own from this website. If only Microsoft provided a low latency driver layer like ASIO then we wouldn't need drivers as Balance is fully Class Compliant!
