Can’t live with it… Can’t live without it
I resisted upgrading my operating system to 10.4.6 for months, mainly because everything was running smoothly under 10.4.5. Once again, I tempted fate and performed the OS update. Naturally, things started running a little odd. Peak 4 was stalling and crashing, which forced my […]

ReWire 1.7 & Reason 3.0.5Saturday, May 20th, 2006
The Props have released a much needed update to ReWire which makes integration with host applications much smoother. Logic Pro users can sympathize with the excruciatingly slow launch and load times associated with Reason and ReWire, not to mention the occasional hang-up when closing out the ReWire slave application. Finally this issue […]

Melodyne SETuesday, March 1st, 2005
Celemony has really dropped the price of Melodyne SE, so much so that I had to finally pick up a copy. All the things people have said about it are true. It really is a revolutionary piece of technology.
I was hoping for a little better rewire implementation, but it’s quite simply a straight synchronization with […]
Power Tools for Reason: The second editionSunday, February 20th, 2005
It’s been a rough week trying to juggle things around. This year, my normal obligations have me quite busy, and it’s been pretty tough trying to switch modes from work to music projects to writing.
The main project occupying my time, has been the revised second edition of Power Tools for Reason. I keep thinking […]

Caps2MIDIFriday, March 16th, 2001
TXT:: I received an interesting e-mail from Thomas Alker. He’s written a little shareware application called Caps2MIDI. It basically turns your Mac’s Keyboard into a MIDI keyboard for use with your MIDI applications. It’s handy for PowerBook Jockeys who want to trigger notes and samples from a Reason Sampler without carrying around a controller. I’ve […]
AMIII Digital Input BehaviorSunday, February 25th, 2001
TXT:: I discovered something interesting recently with the AMIII card and Reason and the Digi 5.01 drivers. If you have an external digital clock source connected to the S/PDIF inputs, set the Digidesign control panels to synchronize to the digital inputs, and the Reason CPU usage drops dramatically when set to Sound Manager Output. It […]
