Hi guys, I'm brand new to using reason and i'm trying to make my first track. I've dragged an audio file I want to chop into the sequencer but pressing the play button does nothing. This is true for both MP3 and WAV files. Is there something I need to turn off or on to get this to play? or is this just broken.

Can you give us a bit more information about your setup, maybe a screenshot of the file in the sequencer?

Does the playhead move when you press play? If so, if you turn on the click can you hear it?

Be sure you return to zero.

Perhaps also check if you have unclicked 'monitoring' for the specific audio track i.e the little green speaker button

Make sure you selected a valid audio interface in the preferences.
