Abelton Live 10<br/>Stutter Edit

Abelton Live 10
Stutter Edit

Stutter edit from Izotope was on sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales of 2018. In this video I am just having a blast while using this device.

It is pretty fun to use.

Anyway, in this video I will explain how to setup stutter edit inside Ableton Live 10. Making use of midi outputs and connect those to different channels.

I am preparing to leave reason as a DAW

I am preparing to leave reason as a DAW

This might need some explaining, and I personally do not want to start clickbaiting anyone. But here is the things, I have discovered parts on where it goes wrong with their CPU parts, and no one wants to listen to me.

So I am bailing this ship while it is sinking.

thor analog synth

thor analog synth

A few days ago I wrote myself this article:

https://www.reasonexperts.com/creating-an-analog-synthesizer-with-thor.html

And the patch I am going to talk about will be mentioned in this video. Some parts are about the major differences between voice key, midi key and last key. While eventually I will be using Voice key to make use of that to make the sound a bit more analog.

Reason 10.2 creating a multi layered grain engine

Reason 10.2 creating a multi layered grain engine

Hi, I am Hydlide. Welcome to my vlog.

In this video, I am going to talk about using Grain as a multi-layered sample setup. Kind of what you could so with the NN-XT. But in this case, I am using multiple instances of Grain as a test case scenario.

While I might add, the setup is quite a time consuming to do. But once you do it, you have a sampler that is quite unique. Has different layers. And can be manipulated in many different ways.

The origin article I am referring to is located here:

Grain Early work in Progress

Grain Early work in Progress

Hi I am Hydlide of reasonexperts.com

today I am going to share an early work in progress about a project I have started on. This project is going to be a Grain refill project that supports Reason 10.2 and everything above that.
Grain is a granular synthesizer which was originally released with Reason 10. While I have encountered several issues with Reason 10 (the initial release that is) I did not really want to make any refills for this device just because of this. The issue was fixed with Reason 10.1. In the meantime, I have been working on a similar refill project called Europa "expressionism".

While grain is just something else, I have also noticed that defining a suitable refill for this device takes a lot more time and effort to make it all work. Since we are talking about samples and manipulating those samples in different directions. So from this angle, the release date is something I can not really comment on since I am not sure when this refill will be finished.

The idea here, however, is pretty much set. I am going to define 32 different engines (based on a similar concept and idea I did with the subtractor "reactor refill".

When those 32 engines are defined it is a matter of making patches for those 32 engines and fill them up with sounds and samples.

How to create a Super Saw <br/> Reason 10 <br/> Reason Vlog

How to create a Super Saw
Reason 10
Reason Vlog

Hi I am Hydlide of Reasonexperts.com. Today I will explain how to create a super saw and debunk how a super saw internally works.

A lot of people will look at the roland jp8080 to create a supersaw and trying to re-create exactly that. While others have been creating custom made super saws in genres like trance and such.

In this video I will explain how internally a supersaw is created using multiple synths. While some prefer to use just one synth only, I am also going to touch Europa (Reason 10) to explain how to create a super saw in Europa.

It is the idea that matters, you can do all the fine tuning from now ;)

Why I chose Reason as my DAW

Why I chose Reason as my DAW

I am Hydlide of https://www.reasonexperts.com (that site that contains tutorials about Propellerhead Reason).

Todays vlog is going to be weird video. I am going to talk about why I started with Reason and using this as my primary daw.

While during the progression of this video (at least, that was part of the end goal of this video anyway) I am going to announce a new project so I can have fun with this again.

Since the workflow has changed a lot for me in the last few years. And this kind of goes back to changing the core on why I was using Propellerhead Reason to begin with.

So with that all said, I am going to throw in a surprise that may not come as expected.

On a side note, I was already working on a different project that relates to Thor, but I thought this idea I am throwing in this video would be much more fun to do!

I will also drop the link on Modplug tracker as I have mentioned in the video:

https://openmpt.org/features

The poll I am referring to in this video can be found on any article page on my own site: https://www.reasonexperts.com

Happy voting!

10 tips and trick on how to stay focussed while making music

10 tips and trick on how to stay focussed while making music

10 tips and trick on how to stay focussed while making music.

We all have been there from time to time. Writing down a piece of music and something happens and we can't finish of our piece of music.

Since I have had these moments a lot myself, I learned myself a workflow called the "timebox method" (it is a Scrum / Agile principle where this is coming from).

I do my timeboxed sessions and while doing so I do a few different preperations before getting started with making music.

A lot of these tips will make common sense, but there might be those little "aha moments" where you didn't realize that it would help you to focus on making music.
