Midi export no sound

I'm working with Reason 6 and made a very simple piano part.
So i've got the "advanced interface", the "mixer" and the "NN-XT" for my piano sound and that's it. When i go to "File" and select "Export midi file" the midi file generated is only 4kb in size and 0 seconds long... Does anybody know what is going on? I'm working on a Mac, SnoW Leopard

It's absolutely normal. Midi contains notes and some controls but NOT AUDIO .
Any sequencer (eg logic) would have generated a file 4kb.

You have to export audio to hear something

Forgive me if I point out that something you said in post #6 is slightly misleading. When I, (and I assume everybody else), export MIDI the whole song as exported as a type 1 MIDI file. Even if a track is not selected it is exported. It does not matter where the loop markers are, but it is important to place the end marker right at the end of all the MIDI clips. I think you meant to say that you had the end marker at the beginning. Please say you did or bang goes my theory.
