Reason 6.5 + PodHD Pro + A day off = Metal

Between everything going on I just haven't had time to work on music. I finally bit the bullet and bought Propellerheads Reason 6.5. I had been using Reaper for a while now, but I always end up spending more time tweaking than I do writing in reaper. The opposite of how I used to work in Reason 3.0 back in the day with a buddy.

So here is my first 30 second Metal test using Reason.

Loading SoundCloud…



Guitar is PodHD Pro using my own custom patch. Bass is Line6 bass amp within reason. Drum samples are G&S Custom Work Drum kit Sample Library 1.0 (FREE and link at bottom) blended with a kick and a snare I processed in reaper from SD2.0 . Large majority of the drum sound is the free library. The sounds processed in Reaper were Heavily processed to beef up things like snare crack, and kick punch. Drums were performed on my Midi keyboard/contorler (without Quantizeing).

I could have spent more time on the drum midi and blah blah blah, but as a test I don't think it warranted any more time than I already have given it. I just wanted to share my results with the community since I haven't seen much metal/rock being done with Reason, and I'm kind of surprised with the results I was able to get with minimal effort. Comment if you want.

I haven't heard much metal on this forum. It is good to have a change.

Why is it called metal by the way? What makes it that?

I don't think anyone really knows. I've read quite a bit about the genre (gotta be sure you know your stuff), but I never have found a definitive answer to that.

Now what makes something metal could be debated all day but I think the definitive traits are tight/punchy drums, fast distorted guitar and bass. At least that's the way I see it.

In the gloom of the evening, I shall take your definition as mine own. I am willing to learn all these genre but just seem to get nowhere. I end up with a Wyggy sound even though I am attempting say a bottle_nose_ whale genre. I wouldn't even get an apprenticeship in tin pan alley.

Nice snippet, hope you roll it out. Sounded good to me.

I've heard and read lots about where the term 'heavy metal' came from. Anything from it being coined after IRON Butterfly's album "In A Gadda Da Vida" to it being named after the sounds coming from the steel works in Birmingham/Black Country where Black Sabbath started out.
