The annual NAMM convention is going to be a bit different for me this year. I’m slated to present at the Propellerheads booth along with Josh Mobley (Neoverse). We’re going to have a little live demonstration of MPR4. I’ve also put together a little Live PA remix of Narrow Escape which incorporates synth patches and combinators that I’ve made for Reason 4.0. The entire song file is setup to be manipulated in Real-Time from a control surface, making it pretty fun to play with and tweak in a performance. I just need to work on my dance moves now…
Some of these patches, which include a filterbank and granular sampler, will become available pretty soon. The filterbank appears in the January Issue of Electronic Musician:
There’s a link to download the example files and the combinator patch on the EM site. Also featured are some workflow tips with the new sequencer, RPG-8, and Regroove Mixer:
I’ve received a lot of emails about the granular patch, and there’s some good news regarding this one. Future Publishing commissioned me to do a tutorial on the combinator, and this will be coming out in one of their Computer Music Reason special issues in the near future. Keep an eye out for that one.
Disclaimer: The one downside of having to present at NAMM, is that I may not have the time (or energy) do do my annual show report. If things Anyone attending, please come by and say “hello”. We go on first at 10:30 AM on Thursday, and you can check the schedule for our other appearance times on the Propellerhead Software website
