Seeking a Reason 6.5 Master in New York City
 
I'm a producer/recording artist in search of a proficient Reason 6.5 engineer/producer/composer who's interested and willing in taking me under his/her wing as their Assistant/Protege/Pupil.

I sincerely want to learn and better my craft but there's only so much progress I can achieve on my own. I need somebody to collaborate with for a mutually beneficial objective so we can cover more ground as an combined effort.

With all due respect and sincerity,

Polarisphere

I believe that is the most respectful request for assistance I have ever seen on these forums. Good on ya. Know that there is a wealth of tutorials available. Look to the top of the General forum for a 'sticky' post containing a list of such. Looking on Youtube for specific techniques is also useful.

If you are in this as a profit-making endeavor and have the budget I suggest you check out the Reason Online Course at Manchester MIDI School. They have a ten-week video-based course that will take you through the basics (and not-so-basics) and blow you away. A new class starts each month and runs about $450 depending on the exchange rate.

HERE is a direct link to the information page.

In the mean time you can buy some great videos from audioschoolonline.com or puremix.net they have some of the best videos I have come across. Also some great books to pick up, "The Art of Mixing" by David Gibson and "The Mixing Engineers Handbook" by Bobby Owsinski are some of the best books I've ever read about mixing.
These are mainly about mixing techniques and not about Reason. You can apply any of these mixing techniques within any DAW. It's all about the mixing techniques if you want that "pro" sound.

It can be hard to find really good videos on youtube because you have so many amauters making videos. I only want to learn from the pros.

Thats a nice request, I would have helped out but I don't live in the states :) So, this master is willing but not able! Maybe some other one reads this and is willing to help you out!

True. I once found myself taking a Reason lesson from an 11-year-old child. He knew what he was doing, though, and explained it well.

Thanks Richard! Definitely appreciated! I'll look into it immediately. Already sounds promising. Cheers!

An 11-year old Reason user?! That's insane! Gotta Google that myself! Lol.

Thanks but what I'm specifically seeking is live/personal engagement - not self-help/assistance from books/videos - apologies if I initially didn't clarify that. Reason being is I'm at a point in my life where I've amassed a good wealth of production knowledge and expertise but doing it alone is or can be overwhelming/depleting. It would be ideal to have a co-engineer/producer to partner up with in addition to reinforce my passion/drive a.k.a. routinely recharge the battery on my back. We're all aware of how grueling and discouraging life can be at times, especially to those pursuing a career/livelihood in the entertainment industry.
