i've had wierd problems with reason and my sound card, too.

try this in this order:
open reason
open a mixer
open a synth
open a matrix pattern sequencer
put note values in the grid of the sequencer, and a row of notes on the bar below that-the velocity bar (putting stuff in both of these two spots is essential-the rectangular grid=pitch, the bar=note trigger and intensity)
hit play on the bottom

-you don't need a midi keyboard

if it doesn't work then, i dunno Smile

...or route a sequencer track to a synth or sampler..and use the midi note editor to draw in notes

do you have all other sound producing applications (including ones which run in the background) closed, before you open reason?
