A Reason+Record Duo User who attended the Producers Conference in Las Vegas asked a rather important question about losing all of his patch browser “Favorites” and “Locations” settings when upgrading from the RR5 Duo package to Reason 6. We discovered that it is possible to migrate these settings provided you are working on the […]
mØxr is a maxmsp based application that converts audio signals to MIDI note events. The application is calibrated to receive Reason CV messages as audio signals, and in turn generate a monophonic stream of MIDI notes that can trigger hardware synthesizers.
A new build of mØxr has been compiled with the recent update of MaxMSP […]
I’ve been busy working on a variety of different projects the past few months which have been mainly other people’s projects.

I have a fairly standard response whenever asked about mastering tracks: If this is a serious project headed for a physical or digital product, take it to the mastering studio of a great engineer. A good studio will have the equipment to reveal and correct problems, and balance the tracks to meet current standards […]
I thought this would be easy… Sample the Roland TR-808, load the files into the Reason 5 Kong Drum Designer… Bam… done! Nope, that definitely is not how things went down.
The primary goal was to create a set of Kong patches that effectively simulate the classic 808. This involved selectively […]
For Record Reason Duo users who have upgraded to version 5/1.5, rest assured that CycleOn still works as designed with the Dr.OctoRex. Even with the new loop run mode, there are still some benefits to using CycleOn. Namely, Loops start and stop at the beginning or end of a measure marker, instead of […]
Propellerheads Reason 5 and Record 1.5 are finally released, and one of the things that many fellow tweak heads are curious to try is the Neptune pitch correction device in Record 1.5.
