Breaking out of the loop

Breaking out of the loop

Welcome back to another article about Propellerhead Reason. In this one I would like to address a few tricks I often apply myself to get out of the "loop". Where the original is based on a loop. Some of these ideas might be quite obvious, but then again I can just write them down in let's say 30 minutes time. The concepts off breaking out of a loop aren't that hard. It requires some logical thinking and it may require a few things to make it all work. Anyhow here are some ideas to get you started with it.

Multiband reverb

Multiband reverb

Hi, in this article (in which I really won't waste my time, because it is Christmas) I am going to present a set of multiband reverb. The problem with most reverb is that they often have problems (or issues, let me put it that way) when triggering the different type of frequencies. This totally depends on the original sound that is used, which frequencies 'it' is triggering and how the reverb is set up in theory. Long decay times can make a reverb create a long sonic boom while using less damping on the higher frequencies it tends to hiss a lot (when using a lot of high-hats). I prefer to use different techniques that would fit in the realm of the multiband reverb. This technique simply allows me to create different reverb types per frequency I am using, thus it allows full control on how the reverb act like on a specific range of those frequencies.

Analog filters

Analog filters

In this article, I will do a small write-up about a technique I sometimes use to drive a filter into a different analogue type of filter effect. While normally you could use the Thor Filter with Self Oscillation. This is a nice touch since you are adding a sine wave on top of the waveform itself. This method is ideal for making your filter scream analogue (since in the analogue world this technique is often applied because they respond to frequencies). A lot of analogue filters also love the idea of using control voltage inputs where these inputs are controlled by oscillators (which are often free running or used in combination with a sequencer). These type of setups make the filter rather aggressive, yet unstable at the same time (something that a digital filter does not do since they often sound very clean). So with that said, I will create a setup and show you a method to put dust on a filter.

AB switching in Reason

AB switching in Reason

Welcome to another creative set up. In this article I want to address the different options we have to A/B switch inside Reason. While there are plenty of Rack Extensions that do these sorts of things I will mainly focus on a few of them. Once done so, I will look at the power of Thor to do A/B switching and also provide some additional information on why I would go for these routes instead (in short: flexibility duh!). The benefit behind Rack extensions (as I personally see it) they are nice short cuts to get things done fast. That is one of the reasons why these type of plugins can be helpful.
