    Hi,

    since Reason doesn’t pick up the VSTs automatically I would presume you are on Windows and your 64-bit versions of the Toontrack VSTs aren’t installed in the VST folder listed in Reason’s Preferences.
    Please open the Standalone version of e.g. EZdrummer and click the Help> Show Plug-In Path entry.
    Make sure this path is added in Reason > Preferences > Advanced > VST Plugin Folders.

    I have windowsIwindows 10 just purchased ezdrummer I installed both the 64 and the 32-bit version.  I just upgraded to reason 11.  I’ve been working on this for 24 hours straight and can’t figure it out.  I followed all the steps nothing is showing up for vsts in reason.  I set the correct path.  I checked the path from The help menu in ezdrummer.  My plug 64 plug host 64 none of that stuff is showing up even when I drag it over to the reasons side.

    Limcost me $300 and I can’t get it to work.  Nobody will break it down for me.  Please help

    Hi,

    as you can see in my attached screen shot, I have made sure the VST path is correct, selected ‘Instruments’ in the Browser to the left and scrolled down to the VSTs section below the Reason Instruments. Reason_EZD2

    I have already made screen snapshots of the interface of my plugins but before you have made those, EZdrummer 2 will only have a big ‘VST’ label on the plugin in the list.

    I hope this helps,

    John

    I figured it out I’ll make a YouTube video and explain it more thoroughly.  I know a lot of people are struggling with it

    I have Reason 12. It doesn’t reconize Toontrack EZ drummer. It worked with Reason 11 but with the Reason 12 upgrade its not recognized. Can you help me with this?

    Thanks,

    I am having a similar issue, except I’m using Reason Essentials, and I can’t find the VST Pathway to link up with EZdrummer.  I’ve really been wanting to use VST’s with this program since I’ve been using it for almost a decade.  This is the wall I keep running into.  Hopefully I didn’t just spend a bunch of money on something I can’t use. :/

    Hi,

    which version of Reason Essentials do you have? VST Support was introduced in v 9.5.

    It’s Reason Essentials 2.1.1, but I’ve found a product which Reason said would upgrade Essentials to version 11.  What I’m trying to find out now, is whether Toontrack uses VST3 or something else.  I asked Reddit about my situation and one person said that Reason 11 has no VST3 support.  I’m not certain the validity of this claim, but neither am I certain about the compatibility between Toontrack’s EZ Drummer and Reason 11.  I’ve attached a picture of Reason 11 that I’m considering.

    Thoughts?

     

    I just need my DAW and EZ Drummer to work together.  You’d think this would be simple stuff, but I think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Side Note for anyone else reading this:

    Reason’s customer service, and their program up to 9.5, leaves something to be desired.  You’re really backed into a corner with them, but I’ve already dedicated 10 years to learning the program, so I can’t turn back now.  I should have bitten the bullet and started off with ProTools, more expensive, but less drama.
