Subtractor Jam Session Song Challenge!

There have been some discussions on this board of late that might suggest that the Subtractor is less than par. I feel there is more to it than meets the eye. It can be a huge weapon in the Reason arsonal. It is first choice in most of what I work on.

So here's the bit:
An all subtractor song challenge.
Reason Factory Sound Bank only.
No Percusion Patches(you can make drum sounds with other patches)
You can control the Subtractor in any way you want except with the Malstrom.
No prizes, just good clean fun to show the "Nay Sayers" that they are wrong.
When you finish post as .rps on the song board and anounce your track.
Then everyone will have a chance to listen and share some ideas and feed back.

ANYONE DOWN FOR THAT!

Re: Subtractor Jam Session Song Challenge!


Well, it's been done before (the "Submarine Contest" I think it was called...) but I think it'd be cool to do again!

Does "no percussion patches" mean no using the Subtractor to create drum sounds or does that mean no using non-Subtractor drums?

:You can use any Reason Factory Sound Bank patch to make a drum sound, but you can't use the Subtractor Percussion Patches.You'll have to make all the drum sounds from the other Sound Bank patches.
You can use the Redrum to control Subtractors.

Also the submarine contest let you use the Malstrom.

This is going to be fun!

So you have to use 100% Subtractors, and you can use the FSB patches if you want, but if you need drum sounds you cannot use the FSB drum sounds?

What about loading an FSB drum sound and tweaking it into something slightly different?

OK

That sounds like fun. But only FSB Subtractor patches. No refills or off brand patches.

RULE CHANGE :
ALL SUBTRATOR PATCHES FROMTHE FSB!

Ok, now you've changed it again! Does this mean including percussion patches? Does this mean we cannot create custom patches, or just that we cannot use existing patches from outside of the FSB?

Re: OK

You can only use the patches found in the RFB. That is what it's always been. Before, I said you couldn't use the RFB patches that were Percussion. I said you had to tweak other patches into drums(I still plan to do this) to make your own drum patches.
ooooh, my bad. I didn't mean "creating patches" you pack with the Refill Packer. I just wanted people to use the RFB so I wouldn't have to download a buttload of crap from other websites and have as little upload/download time as possible. All the Subtractor Patches in the RFB should be more than enough to prove the "Nay Sayers" wrong.

So, Drew, it's RFB only, all Subtractor.

Umm... Subtractor patches can be loaded without any ReFills... they don't have any samples in them. I mean, I could make an entirely Subtractor song (and Malstrom too for that matter) without using anything from the FSB and you wouldn't have to download anything from any websites at all.

Is your intention here to show the broad capabilities of the Subtractor, or the broad capabilities of the FSB patches? 'Cause limiting people to the FSB patches is going to bring down the cause a bit... and there's no reason why people shouldn't be able to make their own patches...

Techno?

No techno here. I like Pop songs like Hootie and the Blowfish and Bare Naked Ladies. I'm thinking of covering some Green Day songs in the style of Dave Mathews

You could make what ever you want.
enough typing, now get to work
