The Deep Rhodes Sample on the Dr Octo Rex - recreating it in Reason without Dr Octo
 
Hey up Reason Users!

In Reason 6.5, the Dr Octo player has Deep Rhodes REX file in its Music Loops folder.

I've been wondering about it, as it seems to be the "magic Deep House sound" which is highly sought after.

Now, it would be too easy to just use the Preset provided or to use a sample pack (I'm pretty sure the pro's wouldn't) in a track so have therefore try to recreate it myself.

1. Does anybody have an idea where Propellerheads would have obtained that sample?

2. Does anybody know how to recreate that kind of filtered Rhodes sound or has successfully used the instruments in Reason to produce such a sound?

I've attempted to do this using the ElectroMechanical refills along with using distorition, reverb, chorus, etc. Whilst they are good, they don't quite have the same kind of sound.

Any tips or pointers would be fantastic!!!

Cheers

Bill

eLab are the guys that produced the sample...and many others too.

Thanks chickwe,

I'll give it look, it'll give me a good starting point!

Why wouldn't you use the sample if it sounds the way that you want?

And why would you re-create it to get the same exact sound just to avoid using the sample?

People seem to think that using a loop or a sample from a library is somehow cheating, but that's kind of silly.

Look at the piano... it's full of pre-set sounds, and it's dirt easy to play them... just press a big rectangular button.

But the success in playing a piano isn't that you create your own sounds, it's that you take the sounds that the instrument provides, and you arrange them in such a manner that the result sounds good.

Loops and samples are really no different.

I guess its for educational purposes too i.e. the whole sound design thing, which I've been reading up a lot.

However, I do appreciate that playing any synth is effectively playing a keyboard full of pre-set samples.

I make Hip Hop too, so always use old samples.

Im not at the pc where reason is so I cant hear the sound you're talking about but try this using one of the NN19 Rhodes patches from the RFSB.
Root note (0) +3, +7, +10, +14

Instant deeo house no?

That chord pitched up an octave sounds great for deep house/dub techno.
