I am trying to use reason to recreate some early 1990's rave/hardcore sounds (Altern 8, Joey Beltram, N-Joi, Sounds of Rythym, Frank De Wulf).
It would be much appreciated if anyone could let me have details of any tutorials, refills etc that would help.
1. The classic breakbeat loops in rex-format:
- Funky Drummer
- Think (About It)
2. 909 emulation:
- rebirth via input machine
- phuturetone boxes combinators: http://www.phuturetone.com/
- reason soundbank (under redrum, sounds and samples, for the bassdrums those with "xtc" in the name)
3. 808 emulation
- more or less same as with 909
4. The records Altern-8 and co used for sampling stuff from (for Example Altern-8's E-Vapor-8 samples this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r7MjUDgZ0I)
5. The reason samplers
6. A Vinyl cutting machine or someone who owns one (these guys are really good: http://www.drdub.com/) for the finished tracks. It would be blasphemy playing that style of music from digital sources :D
While sampling and using REX-loops can be a method I prefer finding a way creating those sounds from scratch ;)
Thanks both for taking the time to reply.
Kovkov - that is really useful cheers, I'm a complete newbie so i'm quite a way off cutting my first dub plate but hopefully soon! I have a couple of questions if you don't mind.......is the rebirth only available on iphone/ipad? Sampling is an issue for me as I only have reason 4 at the moment. I think sampling from an input (vinyl etc) is only on the later edition - am i wrong or is there any way or doing this perhaps a source of samples to download somewhere?
Anyway, thanks again!
You cannot sample directly via input with R4 but you can record stuff with some other application and import those .wav files into nn-19, nn-xt and redrum.
