About my Reason License
The new direction
I am Hydlide of ReasonExperts. This may not be anything new that I am going to post on this 'blog'. But I want to make it more official (rather than having it as a rumor). Since recently there is a large smear campaign going on (as totally expected) about myself, this site and a vlog post that I posted on the internet almost 4 days ago by the time I am posting this.
Reasonexperts site update
Reasonexperts site update and maintenance announcement
Today I would like to announce that this site will get a completely new facelift somewhere next week. While I am always transparent about changes, I would also like to break down in a later segment why this facelift was kind of needed. While the main core value of this site will basically remain the same: providing propellerhead reason tutorials. The only thing that is going to change is the way this platform will work (but works a tiny bit different). Part of the problem I was facing with the current platform as it was originally build was continuity. Even while it was made with a mindset to expand different ideas (for instance implementing a forum was done in a matter of months, but canceled due to lack of interest) the development was kind of stalling during months later due to different reasons (codebase would be one of them).
Europa Expressionism Refill Progress
Hello there, and welcome to another happy mood article about Reason. While some people may see me as a grumpy cat, there are times when I am in a happy mood. The reason for this is the bug fix that was done for Europa and released with Reason 10.1. There were two crucial things inside of Europa which I saw a flawed synth mechanic (something I already posted in this article about my Europa Refill Project). Just to sum it up, for now, there was a velocity bug inside of both devices (which I reported) and a global envelope bug (which I encountered later, but did not report). These things were quite essential for me otherwise I would create patches that contained a flawed gizmo in them. To be honest, I wouldn't make patches for a synth that would be flawed by design. Therefore, I canceled the project (since there was no update since 5 months after I reported it). So now that the fix has been applied I can resume my Europa Refill project again.

Working on becoming GDPR compliant
On 25 May 2018, a new law will be enforced regarding the digital protection law. This new law is known as the General Data Protection Regulation. Meaning we can only use data which we use for this site (data that we may need for the site to function). Due to the implementation of this law, I had to make a few adjustments to the way this site functions. Most of this is already covered in our privacy statement. You may want to re-read this in case you haven't read it just yet.
cakewalk 1987 2017 rip
As it may as well be known by now, Cakewalk and all of its products have stopped development since 1 December 2017. While there is still some speculation regarding what the future may bring for Sonar, the VST department of Cakewalk (z3ta++, compressors and alike) there are currently a few facts I have gathered regarding the whole deal with Gibson taking down the development of Sonar and Cakewalk products.
Happy new year and some other stuff
First of all, happy new year! And may this be an awesome 2018.
For me personally, it has started with a rather big hangover. You may have noticed that in the last few days this site has been non-responsive since 30 December 2017 until 1 January 2018. So from this angle, my holiday weekend ended a bit different then I would expect.
Minor change taking place on this website
October sound design workshop
Starting from 15 October 2017 I will start a workshop regarding sound design using Thor. This will be a 16 days course (so this will range from 15 october till 31) where I'll be covering the basic principles on Oscillators, Filters, modulation, AM, FM, Syncing, Envelopes, Modulation busses and everything else. I will also be covering some additional 'secrets' I have discovered (topics that have not been touched elsewhere except on my own vlog / videos or tutorials).
Propellerhead Reason 10 announced
