ReWire is a product convention, together created by Propellerhead and Steinberg, permitting remote control and information exchange among advanced sound altering and related programming. Initially showing up in the ReBirth programming synthesizer in 1998, the convention has since developed into an industry standard.

Right now utilized as a part of macOS and Microsoft Windows 32-bit or 64-bit sound applications, ReWire empowers the synchronous exchange of up to 256 sound tracks of subjective determination and 4080 channels of MIDI information. This permits, for instance, the yield from synthesizer programming to be encouraged straightforwardly into a direct editorial manager without the utilization of middle records or simple exchanges. There are additionally arrangements to remotely trigger activities, for example, beginning and ceasing recording. The convention is authorized complimentary to organizations only,[1] however accompanies a “non-exposure of source code” permit that is contrary with most free-programming licenses.

The ReWire framework comprises of “Blenders”, “Boards”, and “Gadgets”. Blenders are the host applications which ordinarily do the sequencing toward one side and the last mixdown at the opposite end. A Device is a dynamic connection library that lone produces sound; it has no UI. A Panel is a graphical interface for setting the parameters of one Device. An average setup is utilize Ableton Live in “Blender” mode, and utilize Propellerhead Reason as a synthesizer. For this situation Reason would give Device/Panel sets to Ableton, which could then send midi charges, synchronize timing and blend Reason’s yield into its own particular impacts chains. Numerous applications bolster either mode. Indeed, an application could (at the prudence of an engineer) go about as both a Mixer and a Panel at the same time.[2]
