Artist story: Anti Pop Consortium
New York City's own alternative hip hop vanguard has
reunited and is back with a new album after a seven year hiatus. Fluorescent Black is a fresh take on the mix of hip hop and
synth-rich, glitchy IDM influences that has become their trade mark sound. We traveled to meet with High Priest, one fourth
of the group, in East New York, Brooklyn. In the interview, High Priest explains how the group began using software such as
Reason in their production. We also get a peek inside the programming work on Capricorn One, one of the tracks from the
Record U - Tools for Mixing: EQ
The second installment of the Record U series of
recording tutorials is now available. This time, we're starting to look at the secrets of mixing, with an introduction to what
role EQ plays in clearing up a muddy mix. We'll learn how the various filters in a fully featured EQ section such as Record's
are used and what they actually do to sound. Yes, there are plenty of diagrams and audio examples too.
Record Micro Tutorial: Fun with REX files
In the 16th (wow 16th!) Record Micro Tutorial,
we will look at some cool uses for REX files in Record. For years, Reason users have used the Dr.REX Loop Player to add REX files to
their tracks. Dr.REX is still what you want to use to program fills, variations and rearrangements of your REX loops,
but Record can pull off a few tricks that the honorable Doctor can't.

Here's some good stuff from the big big world out there:
AudioTuts: The Secrets of Great Sounding Percussion in Reason
"Reason is a great program for percussion, particularly with the ease of use of the Redrum drum machine. However, stock
sounds won't always cut it, so in this tutorial, we'll look at some secrets for turning those stock sounds into unique masterpieces."
Remix Mag: Make NNXT Patches Scream With Thor's Filters
"One thing I love to do with some of the more traditional sounds (like pianos or strings) is to run them through the
awesome-sounding analog filter banks on the new Thor synthesizer. This is so much fun in real life, and works just as well inside Reason."
