I’m happy to announce that the Music Production with Reason & Record tutorial video is finally available from Groove 3! In this edition, we look at Josh’s track, “What’s the Reason” which features the talents and writing of a new artist, Blackjack. You can download the Record+Reason session file from the […]
The combinator (version 3) in Reason 5 / Record 1.5 has a few notable improvements. Programming is easier with hierarchical destination menus - you no longer need to scroll down long lists of destination parameters. Another welcome improvement is the addition of direct CV inputs. In combinator 2 (Reason 4), a […]
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. Among the general pitch quantization and voice synthesis features, Neptune has a pitch-to-cv feature and an envelope follower which correspond to the […]
Last year, I posted a few items on using Reason CV/Gates to control analog synths through a MOTU audio interface, and recently, I’ve received an unusual amount of email inquiring about the concept of controlling analog synths via Record. I figured it’s about time that I should post this, a Record session file with […]
If you haven’t seen them yet, I’ve been working on some combinator programming tutorials which will be available on the Line6 website. Combi programming concepts are important for both Reason and Record users, so i’ve decided to focus my efforts in explaining some of the basics.
So follow this link and sign in to […]
In this continuing quest to interface analog hardware to Reason 4.0, It’s become very apparent that only a few brands on hardware interfaces feature DC coupled outputs which will enable direct routing of control voltage signals (CV) from software applications to analog devices. Since the release of MOTU Volta, people have been trying to […]
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 […]
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 […]
For quite some time, I’ve been trying to perfect a beat repeater combinator. You may have seen it in one of my song files or in James Bernard’s demo reason song “Age of Technology”. The quandry that I’ve faced is that there’s no way to make a universally useful version of the […]
I’ve been brushing up on my illustration skills and have put together a little chart of the Key Commands for Reason 4.0. The Key Command documentation goes into pretty extensive detail about the various shortcuts, but doesn’t provide a visual overview, so hopefully this little visual aid will help you familiarize yourself with many of […]
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 […]
