I tried Reason+ for a week and then unsubscribed. Unfortunately I couldn’t get back into my Reason 11 Suite rack plugin. In case anyone was wondering, this is how to get it back. A real pain in the ass.

From Reason support:

“Please delete these files:
Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/Reason Rack Plugin.vst3
Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3/Reason VST.vst3 (<-- folder)
Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/Reason Rack Plugin.component (AU)
Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Avid/Audio/Plug-Ins (AAX)
And then reinstall Reason 11 Suite:
https://www.reasonstudios.com/download/reason-suite11

Now you should be able to use the Reason Rack Plugin again. Note that any song saved in Reason 12 Rack Plugin, wont open up with Reason 11 Suite Rack Plugin:

MacBook Pro (i7 16 GB RAM), Reason Suite 11, Logic Pro 10.6, Ableton Live

Thanks!
However I’m in a slightly different boat. I’m looking to hop back from (regular) Reason 12 to Reason 11 (snappier loading RRP, among other things). At least until we see some point updates.

But I now that I’ve bought the update, I don’t see a way to download Reason 11 anymore. I still have the Reason 11 app, but I need to re-download the v11 RRP components.
Any ideas?

Just FYI, you can choose the custom install if you want to overwrite (or not overwrite) the RRP you have installed.

You'll have to re-install. But keep in mind that you can always choose the custom install in the future as mentioned in my last comment.

Thanks for helping! Still puzzled though…
Before I can install anything, I have to be able to download Reason 11, right? Right now the website only lets me download Reason 12 - unless I’m looking in the wrong place.

It should be on available to download on your account "My Products" page

That’s where I can download Reason 12. Reason 11 is gone from there ever since I upgraded.

For those who upgraded to 12 from 11, can any of you still download 11?

Sorry I am not entirely following. Do you want to install Reason 11 or Reason 12? If you just wipe everything from the AppData/Application Support folders and re-install either version you'll get the soundbanks back. I cannot remember that we've ever had soundbanks-only links.

Nope, that's the first time I looked, of course.
This page shows me a download option for Reason 12 (and an old license for Reason 10 Lite I have sitting around), but nothing for Reason 11, or earlier.

Was I perhaps unclear about what I'm trying to do? I have Reason 12 (upgraded from Reason 11), but now I'd like to download Reason 11 again. Is that even possible?

I totally overlooked that post - now I feel foolish...
Thanks! And thanks to gallium too!

This is the only link I could find on the RS site:
https://www.reasonstudios.com/download/ ... soundbanks

I have a cap on download, so I’d like to save on downloading the entire 5.5+gb of Reason 12 again.

Ah! I wasn't actually aware this page was still live, good find! I'll talk to the team and see if and why that hasn't been updated in a while (Reason 8 it seems). Will report back.

OK so follow up stratatonic - that page is sadly hard coded, so it'll take me a while to get you new soundbank links, but I am on it :)
