1st Post here. Tryin' out Reason Essentials

Hey All. i've been using MPC's and synths for years and now have moved into a small apt. and only have access to a laptop and midi controller. Just getting into the swing of things. I've also bult up a sample collection over the years of multi-sampled keyed instruments and percussion that I share for FREE on my tumblr blog... http://fakekrates.tumblr.com/

after digging around for some sounds in reason, i realized i missed some of my analog sounds... in the process of making some nn-xt patches with the synths/percussions i've sampled over the years... Just put up some Jupiter4 sound sets on the blog.

I'm really digging subtractor!!! I'll keep looking around these forums for tips. Just wanted to say Hi and share some sounds... I haven't bought essentials yet, so I can't post in the other forum yet... hopefully soon.

FK

Greetings - and welcome to the forum. Check out Propellerhead's YouTube channel (it's under PropellerheadSW), and in particular the "52 Reason/Record Tips" for weeks 44, 45, & 46. Great Subtractor tutorial stuff in there.

Welcome, hope you enjoy it. Hm, if you like subtractor you should play around with thor Beyond being a fun synth, in most cases if you can dream up some routing possibility, thor can do it - 2 members here even figured out (in different ways) how to use it to do mid-side mastering.

IMO, unless you can find a copy of Essentials from the Balance, which has a reduced upgrade price, you would do better to shop for a used version of Reason itself.

Reason 1-5 can be found for ~ $100, and R6/6.5 for about $200-250.

If you buy the boxed version of Essentials new ($80 atm at Sweetwater), you'll pay ~ $300 ($329 msrp, $299 Sweetwater) for the upgrade, and you won't likely find a better price on that particular upgrade due to no real secondary market.

However, if you can find the Essential from the Balance at a good price (factoring the cost of upgrading to R6/6.5), then get it, as it has special upgrading super powers...

...it can be upgraded to R6/6.5 for $169 msrp ($129 at ScitScat Audio, look in their ebay store), or it will upgrade R1-5 to R6/6.5 for free (you need a valid license of R1-5, but as I said, ~ $100 used).

There are some caveats when buying used... you can find more here...
