Redrum Patterns for Reason

Redrum Patterns for Reason

Here you go, 110 Redrum patterns for Reason 5 and above. Last year I was involved in making a large refill you may have heard of called the Reason Refill 2016. In this refill, I created a wide range of Rex loops based on personal crafted redrum patterns. Since I am still having these patterns in my possession I thought I would share these patches on my site as well. While I might admit this is only a short portion of the pattern I created back then. Some patterns were made in Reason 5 (the song files I am sharing today) while others were made originally in Reason 8. So those will have to wait because the complete package is way too big to share on this site (so I need to strip them first). The song files I am posting today will not contain any samples since these are also a part of the Reason Refill 2016.

Redrum Sends and the SSL Mixer

Redrum Sends and the SSL Mixer

In the old school days (read: pre Reason 6 era) you could chain up the send auxiliary with the Mixer 14:2. While using the SSL Mixer in Propellerhead Reason, this is not an option by default. Simply because the SSL Mixer does not have a Chaining Auxiliary. With some nifty cabling you are able to use the S1 and S2 of the redrum and still make use of those (in case you really need it).

The Redrum workflow

The Redrum workflow

While the Redrum has been there for a very long time (since Propellerhead Reason version 1 even). While the Redrum Drum computer could always be used as is. With never versions of Propellerhead reason, especially the introduction of the SSL mixer, things have changed rather drastic. Since at some point of view, you can (if you want) still use the music program in a Reason Rack Oriented perspective. However, if you think in terms of workflow, and sequence oriented, you can use one redrum from one specific sound. If you are SSL mixer oriented you can use different mix channels per channel.

Redrum in Reason Setting up a Hi Hat

Redrum in Reason Setting up a Hi Hat

In this article I will throw in some tips and tricks you could to to make your hi hats a bit interesting using the Redrum Drum computer. Make note, the a similar set up is applicable for the NN-XT Advanced Sampler, or the NN-19 digital Sampler. In most cases the hi hats are the easiest sounds to tweak if you would compare this with the snares or kick drums as I have done in the previous 2 articles I presented: Creating a fat snare in reason Creating a fat kick drum in reason The main issue with hi

Creating a fat layered Snare

Creating a fat layered Snare

In our previous instalment I have been writing a full coverage on how to set up a fat layered Bass drum. Just because I had 0 awesome comments from my visitors, I have decided to do a follow up on this, explaining how I would set up a layered Snare drum. Since I have been explaining a lot during the previous instalment, I am not going to throw in too much repetition. So lets just dive in to the subject matter. While creating a layered snare kind of works the same way, there are some differences between

Creating a Fat Layered Kick Drum

While in the previous reason tutorial I did a small "recap" on how to use the redrum drum computer in Reason. In this article I will basically tell you how to get more out of the Redrum Drum computer output wise. A lot of times I get questions like: "omg, your drums are so fat howz didz you getz thoze?!". You wanna know right? I will tell you how I do this Phase 1: the sounds First of all, the sound of the initial drums are important. While the Redrum holds a lot of nice sounds ..

Reason Redrum Drum Computer

Reason Redrum Drum Computer

In this reason tutorial I will take us back to the almighty Redrum drum computer that has been there since the beginning of Reason. Why I am bringing up this old subject again, simply... I was asked to explain some bits about the Redrum Drum computer. While have done a lot of different articles about this, I will just throw a few links on how you could approach the device from start to finish. While this may be quite a lot of information I will summaries some of the different elements in one single article

Redrum acting like a gator

Redrum acting like a gator

Welcome back once again to another creative use of an existing device with in Reason. The nice thing about Reason in its default state is that even while devices are meant to be used in a specific way, you can always choose (or ignore it) to use devices in a non traditional way. I usually like this approach since sometimes a new creative approach emerges even while it was not intended to work the way you wanted it to act like. However, if you get enough experience on routing things together, ...

Sequencing Drum Patterns and techniques

Sequencing Drum Patterns and techniques

Welcome back to another reason tutorial. In article I will dive a bit deeper in sequencing a Drum Pattern in Reason. In previous articles I have been digging in to how to use the Redrum Drum computer and its pattern step sequencer. Eventually a Drum computer like this will make a drum track fast. The down side with the pattern step sequencer is that it often results in to a "stiff" sounding drum track. This is the main reason why I wrote the "5 tricks to make your drums sound alive". ..

Redrum Repeater

Redrum Repeater

At some point in time I have been working on multiple ways to do the whole "beat repeater" thing. In this article I would like to work on a similar article, but in this case it is a CV triggering device with some cool 'things' you can do with it. The idea is based on something I have done in the past called "the auto Redrum". The main idea behind the auto redrum is that it processed gates by using LFOs rather then keys. However, the setup I am going for this time is ...

The Redrum in Propellerhead Reason

The Redrum in Propellerhead Reason

The Redrum drum computer is a sampler player that has been there since the first version on Reason. The sampler comes with 10 different channels, where each channel can be changed in a specific direction. The Redrum is capable of setting up a drum track rather fast. This is done by loading up by loading up the different sounds in to different channels. While by clicking on buttons using the pattern step sequencer the sequence can be created and altered by different patterns. The step sequencer in the
