Generative music using Reason and modular synthesizers part 1
Generative music using Reason could be done since Reason 4.0. There is the option to use an LFO and throw this against a drum machine (Redrum Drum computer). While at the same time you can also use the Thor step sequencer. You can use the Matrix Pattern Step sequencer to scale the note information. In theory, this will not be the ideal solution (out of the box). Since note values (Control Voltage) can result in a random state. Just to provide additional information about the concept I will also provide a few combinator patches that should work in terms of the older versions of Reason (like Reason 4 or Reason 5).
LFO, or Low Frequency Oscillator. If you have been using since day one, you will most likely have used an LFO once or twice. If you are new to Propellerhead Reason you may have used an LFO in the form of Pulsar. Yet never realized it was called an LFO. I am going to write down this article for a few reasons. First of all, I have had my beef with someone on the internet (a well known person who educates online). The whole discussion about this would be "pulsar" lfo and that this would be the best and only LFO to use in Reason and there are non like it. Case and point is, if you are going to throw these type of arguments in my face, then get ready for an article like this. So here we are.
Reason Pulsar Dual LFO
Welcome back to another Reason tutorial. In this tutorial I would like to explain some of the features of Pulsar. Pulsar is a Dual LFO and is available at the props shop as a Rack Extension. Reason 6.5 was shipped with a feature called Rack Extensions. One of those rack extensions which was made by propellerheads on the launch of Reason 6.5 is the Pulsar Dual LFO (next to Radical Piano and Polar). Pulsar is marked as an utility type of Rack extension, because at some point it is a utility to shape .
