Reason CV/Gate to Analog Synths

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Lately It seems like the only things I purchase from guitar cnter are connectors and jacks. Yesterday I wandered in to get (more) connectors to make some XLR to 1/8″ phone cables which would further my experiments using Reason 4.0 as a control voltage generator with some of my analog synthesizers. Surprisingly, they had […]

Reason CV to Moogerfoogers

Friday, June 5th, 2009

The introduction of Volta from Mark of the Unicorn, is especially exciting news for those of us who have held on to our beloved analog gear. Volta is an application/plug-in that sends control voltage signals through MOTU hardware interfaces which can trigger and modulate analog hardware synthesizers and effects. The beauty of this […]

Reason Users NYC - June 2 at Dubspot

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

I’ll be in New York City during the beginning of June for a few days - long enough to drop in on the first official Reason Users Group NYC event at Dubspot. I’ll be talking about Malstrom stuff, Combi Stuff and building Malstrom effects. There’s also a Q&A session afterwards where we can […]

If i’m not too harried with setting things up for the Producers Conference in Los Angeles, I’ll try to […]

Phase Aligned Tape Comp Combinator

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

In case you didn’t know, the Scream 4 Tape Compression algorithm induces somewhat of a phase inversion to signals passing through the device. As the photograph of the oscilloscope indicates, It’s not a perfect phase reverse because the signal is also being processed by the effect, but it’s enough to cause some problems if […]

Scream 4 Waveforms

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

This is a set of scope images taken during an analysis of Reason’s Scream 4 Sound Destruction Unit. Original Signals - Sawtooth wave generated by a Thor Polysonic Synth in Reason 4.0

Overdrive Algorithm - Despite the transformation of the signal, the phase generally follows the sawtooth phase

Distortion Algorithm - The signal processing is slightly […]
