Mix and Mastering Rig 2

There’s nothing quite like great music passing through a great signal chain in the hands of a great engineer.

The Mix and Mastering Rig brings together some of the best Rack Extensions in the Reason rack, all with one clear goal in mind: taking your mixes to the next level.

With meticulous recreations of classic compressors that have been studio mainstay since the 1960s, sound and coloring devices, and creative effects the Mix and Mastering Rig gets you the sounds from your favorite records because it includes the same classic hardware, and then some.

Pair that with almost 3 hours of instructional videos from Ask Video and you won’t just come away knowing how to use your new devices better, you’ll know how to use all of Reason better.

    Demo sounds:

  • Ozone Maximizer
    The loudness war is over and loudness won, but loud doesn’t have to sound bad. The single most important device you can add to your Mastering chain for commercial-compliant signal levels is Ozone Maximizer.

  • 4Dyne
    Multi-band compression has been possible in Reason for years, but Flower Audio have brought a truly professional multi-band compressor to Reason for total frequency-aware control of your master bus signal.

  • Faturator NEW!
    When “pristine” is a four letter word, you need grit, dirt, and oomph to take your perfect sounds and give them character in your mix. Simple front panel controls give you versatile control for coloring your sounds.

    Demo sounds:

    Demo sounds:

  • Selig Leveler
    A wholly unique approach to compression from Giles Reaves, a mix engineer with a list of bragging rights a mile long. The Selig Leveler, when paired with the right vocalist, can result in transparent compression impossible any other way.

  • Synapse GQ-7 NEW!
    When you combine five bands of surgically precise and fully parametric EQ with a spectrum display to visualize your signal in real time you’ve got a tool designed from the ground up for pro mixing.

  • EVE-AT4 3-Band Equalizer
    Designed as a tribute to the classic 3 band EQ pioneered by Rupert Neve, the EVE-AT4 delivers character in spades to add sheen, remove mud, and shape tones. Each band imparts color and personality to your sound.

  • Black Knight 5 Band Equalizer
    When precise frequency shaping is needed, there is perhaps no better tool for the job than five bands of fully parametric EQ. The Black Knight provides this and more with a input gain stage to color and drive your signal.

    Demo sounds:

  • RE 202 Exciter
    The first time you hear an exciter on your signal the experience is, pardon the pun, exciting. Exciters don’t just boost existing frequencies, like traditional EQ, they generate new harmonic frequencies adding new life to your signal.

  • RE 200 Bass Enhancer
    RE200 Bass Enhancer is designed for saturating low frequency harmonics, creating the effect of lower, deeper frequencies. This effect can not be created with simple equalization alone. Bring your dull bass back to life.

  • Softube TSAR-1R
    The little brother to Softube’s fully customizable TSAR-1 is every bit as good sounding and also lighter on the CPU. The quality of this digital reverb is unparalleled. If you think all reverb is created equal, you won’t for long.

    Demo sounds:

  • Synapse DR-1 Deep Reverb
    Inspired by high end reverbs of the 1980s, this minimal front panel invites custom shaping of your reverb signal and yields authentic vintage results.

    Demo sounds:

  • RPVerb Effect NEW!
    When it comes to a pristine, authentic reverb, it's the algorithm that counts. RP-Verb is the fruit of legendary sound designer Rob Papen's decades-long study of reverb. When Rob Papen gets it right, you know it’s right.

    Demo sounds:

  • Selig DeEsser
    The mixed blessing of modern condenser microphones is that their ability to pick up high frequencies means sibilant vocal frequencies can fry your otherwise perfect mix. Tame the sizzle frequencies you don't want, preserving what you do.

  • Selig Gain
    This Swiss Army Knife of professional gain-related tools is a must-have for any serious mixer. Mono compatibility checks from the press of a button, big-console modeled fade in/out curves, alternate pan decibel laws and much more.

  • G8 Dynamic Gate
    When you take the simple concept of a noise-gate and completely reimagine it as a creative effect, you end up with an advanced noise gate with hysteresis, reject outputs, flip mode, and advanced CV control.

    Demo sounds:

  • Mix & Master Rig ReFill
    With this ReFill you get more than 150 of device patches. Combinator patches and demo songs tailor made for your Mix & Mastering Rig by leading producers and sound designers.
