Drum Sequencer in Reason 10

Drum Sequencer in Reason 10

During the release of Reason 10.1, we are introduced to a new Player called Drum Sequencer a Rhythm player. While downloading the update it does not include the player by default. Since the player is free till 31th of may 2018. So after grabbing the latest update (till 31 may 2018), you can download this player for free manually. You will need to go to the shop page to grab it. Add it to your cart. Then 'checkout' and you can grab it for $0.00. I am just adding this paragraph because I have been poked about this issue for a couple of times through email, facebook or youtube.

Playing melodies around scales

Playing melodies around scales

Today's article is all related to Reason 9. Just because of the idea we are going to use players to make a song much faster (and it may also be an aiding tool later to know how to make a melody later). The reason why I am using players is simply that since Reason 9 I haven't really played any chords manually myself (as I am starting to realize this). One may argue that using players is like cheating to create music. When you understand the idea of making music than players in Reason 9 will make things a lot easier to get things done (without forgetting the whole theory behind it). You may have seen me bounding together a whole article about building chords last week. That is the theory behind it... today we'll be expanding on this to make melodies the easy way.

Layered plucked chord player

Layered plucked chord player

Welcome to another article about sound design using the Subtractor. As some of you may well know the subtractor still has a special place in my heart for many reasons. Because it is simplistic to use by looking at it. It has most of the important options to make a sound (while honest, it is not the best there are better options). And it is a synth to work fast with. In most cases, I am into layering my sounds using a combinator. Today I would like to throw in the process on how I have managed to create a chord builder using the Reason 9 players while using the subtractor. There are different things you can do with it, but I will just throw in the basics so you can expand on this after reading this through. The angle I am going for with this setup is to have a house classic type of plucked lead that could work well in any type of Electronic Dance music type of genre.

Game changer and example files

Game changer and example files

Today I am going post a video I did last week. The concepts and ideas here are to split up an instrument and layer them with different players. Each player will then be used inside its own zone (keyboard range). So from this angle it allows you to play a note on C2 to play a chord while playing C3 it plays an arp and playing C4 will play a strum (as an example). The benefit of this technique is that they are easy to use templates just to get ideas very fast using the exact same instrument. While playing them back in different styles (chords, arpeggio, solo).
