ReDrum ReGroove

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

The old tutorial on MPC Groove Templates is still pretty popular, and usually ranks at the top of the stats. I figured it was about time that I updated the old tutorial with something new that explains how to use the ReGroove Mixer in Reason 4.0.
One question that frequently comes up is […]

Default Song Preferences

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Customizing your preferences is important to optimize your workflow with Reason. One of these is the ‘Default Song’ setting located in the General page of the Preferences window. I prefer a minimal starting point since I like the flexibility of a blank canvas. Many others have fairly elaborate custom setups, complete with […]

Reason 4 Change

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Like many others, i’ve been a bit absorbed with the current presidential election. I’ve already mailed in my ballot and cast my vote for Senator Barack Obama for President.

iPhone Controlling Reason

Monday, September 1st, 2008

I’ve been playing around with OSCemote, an iPhone application that sends Open Sound Control messages over a wi-fi network. The OSC protocol is specifically designed for the transfer of real-time control information for synthesis devices over existing information networks. The protocol is far more comprehensive than MIDI and serves devices like the […]

Reason Summer Camp

Friday, August 8th, 2008

My friend, Tony Dias aka Cubricon, asked me to come by Cogswell College and meet the students of his Digital Music Production class. Six high school students participated in the Cogswell Summer Camp program to learn how to use Reason. Cogswell is a bit behind the times and only has Reason 3.0 installed […]
