Inspired Music Making with Discover and Reason

Posted Feb. 3, 2015, 10:50 a.m.

Propellerhead Discover is a fantastic feed for musical ideas, ready to be picked up in Reason with a single click. When you open Discover material in Reason, the tempo information is preserved, making it very easy to get going quickly adding your own production and musical ideas.

However, sometimes the greatest song ideas captured in Take might have been recorded by singers without a steady tempo or backing beat, which means the tempo tend to drift quite a lot. That shouldn't stop us from being able to use them in Reason, though. In this tutorial, Ryan shows us the basics of finding inspiration from Discover but also an advanced technique for tempo mapping and fitting freely recorded material to a fixed tempo grid ready for Reason production.
