I have BFD3 and Reason 9.5, and I still can't get the two to sync together properly. When I hit "Play" in Reason, or if I scrub to a certain location in Reason's sequencer, BFD3 properly aligns to the correct location in its internal drum track sequencer (in the Groove Editor page). But BFD3 doesn't actually play any sound, because its transport is stuck on "Stop". If I hit BFD3's Play button while Reason's sequencer is playing, then it locks on to the correct position and plays, but it does not stop when I hit Reason's "stop" button.

In other words, it seems like BFD3's sequencer follows Reason's sequencer's positional data, but it does not respond to Reason's transport commands. Has this been fixed in R10? Or is this still an issue? It seems like I can always just drag the MIDI file into Reason's sequencer, but I'd rather stay in BFD3's groove editor because of the tools it provides.

I just bought BFD3 today, so I'll let you know whether it works any differently there. I haven't heard anything about BFD-specific fixes being done for Reason 10, though.

No luck, as best as I can tell. I've put in a support ticket with FXpansion to see if they might have any answers or if they can figure out a fix.

I have BFD 3 and it doesn't work properly in Reason 10, exactly as you described it. That's why I temporarily stopped using it in Reason and bought EZ Drummer instead. I contacted FXpansion support after Propellerhead launched VST support, but they haven't fixed it yet.
