Scales & Chords: Capture Ideas, Discover New Ones!

The new Players introduced in Reason 9 have the power to change the way you make music, helping you work faster, smarter, and imagine more than you once could. If you're new to music theory or a begrudging keyboard player in the age of MIDI controllers, you'll love Scales & Chords for its ability to assist you in the real task: realizing your musical vision, and maybe even exploring new things you didn't think were possible.

In this tutorial we'll walk through the fairly simple controls that make Scales & Chords work but then dive into the beautifully complex music you can make with it by building up a song together. If you think you might want Scales & Chords in your music, you should check this out. However, if you think you don't need Scales & Chords because you already know music theory then you REALLY have to check this out!

 

 

Note Echo: Explore and Expand Your Music in Reason 9

When it comes to Players in Reason 9, Note Echo is perhaps the simplest Player to learn and the deepest to explore in your own music making. That's because the seemingly simplistic rule-set that governs how Note Echo operates belies the complex musical result that comes from it.

In this tutorial we'll quickly learn the basic layout of Note Echo and dive into some musical examples for how it can be used. But the end of this tutorial is just the beginning. Note Echo is all about personal exploration and experimentation.

 

 

The Dual Arpeggiator Player: Music in Motion

The Dual Arpeggiator Player in Reason 9 can be a simple arpeggiator, adding monophonic complexity to static chordal input, but it is so much more than a basic arpeggiator. Its polyphonic approach, pattern ability, and parallel construction of dual arpeggiators all adds up to something quite unique.

In this tutorial, we'll walk you through and show you how Dual Arpeggiator works - from basics to wowzers.

 

 

 

Perfect Your Vocals with Pitch Edit

Often times perfect vocal takes aren't captured, so much as they're crafted. The exactitude in modern recording technology from pitch perfect synths to quantized MIDI sequences has placed responsibilities on vocalists and producers to match that meticulous level of precision in their audio tracks as well. Now, thanks to Pitch Edit mode in Reason 9 meticulous doesn't have to mean tedious or difficult. In a special Reason 9 tutorial, we'll walk you through the basic process of taking a vocal by our own in-house resident untrained singer, Ryan, and getting his potential up to match the rest of the song.

Throughout this tutorial you'll get a basic walkthrough of Pitch Edit, its various workflows, and how to take the techniques you learn here and apply them to your own music, creativity, and advanced experimentation if you want to dive deep.

Reason 9: Using Players with the Neptune Voice Synth

Someone on Propellerhead's Youtube Channel asked a question: Can you use Players in Reason 9 like the Scales and Chords Player on Neptune to create Imogen Heap style chords on a vocal? The answer is YES! But there's a little trick to doing it that I'm demonstrating here.
