Creative Delay effects
Welcome to another tutorial about Propellerhead Reason. Today I will dive in to setting up a wide range of different creative effects using Digital Delays or using Digital Delays in combination with different utilities that come as stock devices. While there are rack extensions that do something similar, the idea with these creative setups is to show case what some crafty wiring can do for you while setting up an effect chain. It is more or less a combination of thinking inside the box, while thinking outside the box more or less. So if you have the proper mindset to be creative, and you are up for the challenge, then maybe these type of articles can be useful. If you think it is a waste of your time (because it is too much work), then just don't bother reading any further and just VST your way using effects in Reason.

Welcome back to another article about Propellerhead Reason. In this article I want to mainly focus on elements that are the so called lo-fi sounds, how to create low fidelity or artifacts you can create inside Propellerhead Reason itself. While since Reason 9.5 we have access to VST plugins, there are some plugins that mainly focus on to getting that specific feeling. In terms of default Rack devices it just comes down to understanding what Lo-Fi is. How it got there in the first place. So we are able to mimic its behaviors. However there are some default Rack Extensions in Reason (like AudioMatic) which can be help full tools to reshape the sound. So lets dive right in to it... shall we...
vk 2 viking synthesizer
Today I want to give a second look at the VK-2 Viking synthesizer. Since in my initial thought I was quite negative about this synth. To be honest, I give my own opinion about these type of rack extensions. If I would just name every feature of a device, it wouldn't make much sense to write an article about a device. Since well... all those specs are already presented on the shop page. You might have heard my complaints about this synthesizer
