In this article about creating Reason patches I would like to write down some food for thought regarding the Off / Enable / bypass methods. These settings are often applied to different effect units.

In the last part I have written down most of the setting when it comes playing a Combinator patch using the Midi keyboard. There is however one little thing I left out, the Keyboard lane. The Keyboard lane might requires its own unique topic. So in this article I will write down thoughts and ideas which might aid you in the process of creating Reason Patches for a specific keyboard range. A Sound in a Specific Area or Not?

In this article I will write down some food for thought about setting up a combinator patch that houses multiple oscillators. The main thought process I often tend to go for is starting with the question: what do I really need. In simple terms, defining the proper Oscillator might be frustrating at times. However to simplify the choice of Oscillators I tend to break it down. Multiple Wav ...
