Mobile music maker Em One made this cover of his original track ‘Jaded Mirrors’ by using Figure as the only sound source besides the vocals. Take a listen, the result is amazing!
Benjamin Laub or Grieves as he’s known to fans, critics, and rappers the world over graduated from his MPC2000 to Reason after getting introduced to it by his long-time collaborator, Budo. Once he realized the depth and possibility, his production quickly shifted over almost entirely inside Reason. And when Grieves set out to take his latest album on tour he was faced with a problem: How could he get his live band to sound EXACTLY like his record sounds. Being a perfectionist, the nearest facsimile just wouldn’t do for Grieves and thanks to Reason’s rock-solid stability and legendary backwards compatibility, he had an obvious solution.
Opening up his entire back catalog of production files – years worth of music – Grieves was able to save patches to new document and create a live performance set up that includes the exact sounds off his record, complete with the same effects, same combinator routings, keyboard splits, etc. The result is a perfectionist’s dream on stage and a fan’s delight. We caught up with Grieves and his new band as they finished up rehearsals in Seattle and took their show on the road with the first show in Portland, Oregon.
Do you find yourself exploding with creativity but unsure of how to get it out? Think you’d do a bang up job making beats that would be blowing up, if only you knew how to get started? Well we’ve got a dynamite new tutorial for you beginners called “Your First 10 Minutes in Reason.” Carlo Nuevo (M.Born) will take you from the first launch of Reason, through setup, and right up to mixing his first track complete with drums, synths, and vocals. It all happens in just 10 minutes and it’ll get you making music in no time. We think you’ll agree. This tutorial is da bomb.
Thor sounds like no synthesizer you’ve ever heard before – and every single one of them. Where other synths use one specific form of synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six different oscillator types and four unique filters. Unlimited sound design potential at your fingertips.
In this micro tutorial we’ll take a look at how to maneuver this unstoppable force of synthesis and give you an overview of its main features.
Ever since Reason 1.0 beatmakers, producers, and button-mashers alike have all loved the venerable old Redrum Drum Computer. And it’s easy to see why. Step sequencing drum machines like Redrum or even the classic Roland 808 offer a nearly perfect layout for programming the rhythmic syncopated beats used in so many popular music genres. The 16 buttons, representing the 16 steps in the beat, provide the right blend of predictable beat construction and random experimentation when you want to spice up your beats.
In this micro tutorial, we’ll get you started with drum step sequencing and get familiar with the Redrum’s layout. You’ll soon learn why producers the world over love Kong but also keep coming back to Redrum for that special creative simplicity.
