Structure your songs using Blocks in Reason 5 & Record 1.5

May 25, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The second announcement for Reason and Record is taking a stab at structuring your songs in segments like intro, verse, refrain etc using something called Blocks. Blocks lets you sequence your songs using a more pattern-based approach, with the segments of your song as individual building blocks to be laid out in your arrangement.

Start by creating the discrete parts of your song in blocks mode. When you are ready to start building your song, just switch back to song mode and draw in what blocks should play in the dedicated pattern lane. Use one block for the verse and one for the chorus — or build your song around a single 8-bar loop.

Blocks provide a very fast way of creating a musical structure for your song. But the options don’t end there. With the basic arrangement laid out, you can see the contents of the blocks and create variations and mute individual parts, or add further musical elements in song mode.

I think this seem very promising – looks like the Propeller guys got this right!
