My Top 5 Combis

The Propellerheads asked me share some of my favorite “go-to” Reason patches with fellow users. Since I usually program my own patches, I offered some goodies from my secret stash. Have a look on the props website:

I’m keeping this brief since I need to finish packing, so that that i make my flight to NAMM :)

    Great stuff Peff!

    I’m trying to understand your HEXPRESSOR. I can’t really figure out why the input is the 240 split or why the output of 240 Hz split, goes into the 100Hz split, who’s output goes to the Sub compressor, yet it’s separate out goes to the bass compressor. Another thing that confuses me is why the separate out of the 240 hz split goes into the 480 hz split and so forth.

    I suppose this entire patch confuses me. At any rate, any insight as to why you did what you did would be greatly appreciated. The more I understand about routing techniques in Reason the more I can develop my own cool patches such as this. Thanks in advance.

    I think I get why the separate out’s go into the inputs of the other images, because we need to exclude lows and highs for those mid imagers? It’s nearly 4 AM I’m way too tired to try and figure this out, at any rate I look forward to your reply. Thanks again.

    @ blarsa: The stereo imagers have four outputs. An incoming signal is divided into the Hi and Low range, and the “SOLO” switch is set to Lo Band, so the low band is directed to main outputs. The secondary outputs are set to pass only the hi band. In each successive stage, the high band is split off and the low band is compressed. In the end you have six discrete frequency ranges from one original signal.
