The big mixer in Reason is where your songs really find their full potential – sonically speaking. The powerful EQ, channel dynamics, bus channels, parallel channels, spectrum EQ, and oh-so-lovely Master Bus Compressor are all designed with one thing in mind: making you sound great!
In this walkthrough of the big mixer, we take a look at the major sections of the mixer and what they mean for your mix.
This video features “Outside In” by Atom, mixed by Gary Bromham inside Reason 7. The track is available for download as a Reason demo song here:
Reason’s virtual rack is the heart and soul of Reason. Synths, drum machines, samplers, effects, and little gadgets that tweak and freak one another are the building blocks of your music.
In this walk-through, we check out the Reason rack in more detail and get you up to speed on the powerful tools in your toolbox.
Inspiration can be a tricky thing. You either feel it or you don’t. So much of music making is about either capturing inspiration when it happens or making it happen through new sounds, new techniques, or new ways of processing sound.
In this video, we take a look at all the ways that Reason can inspire your music.

The mighty Raven MTX at Frankfurt Musikmesse.
The RAVEN MTX is: – A state of the art touch screen display featuring the RAVEN MIXER – A powerful multitouch mixer that can control all major DAW’s – And a flexible and user-customizable, multifunction TOOLBAR. The RAVEN also incorporates a full-featured analog monitoring section designed for today’s audio engineer, with multiple speaker outs and input sources, smart phone connectivity, USB, multiple headphone send and cue options, and much more. But at the heart of the RAVEN MTX is the most important thing of all… Your DAW, right at your fingertips.
The Multi Touch Display
When we began to develop the Raven concept, we studied the touch screen industry for months and became experts in the various technologies. We realized something very quickly: to make a multi touch monitor suited for the pro audio industry, no “off-the-shelf” product would work; they were too slow, with thick, untreated glass and unusable parallax between your finger and the image. The screens themselves wouldn’t look correct at the angle that we needed, the glass had a horrible friction to it, and there were no proper drivers to do real Mac and PC integration with professional DAWs. So we started from the beginning, and built the RAVEN touch display from the ground up, using brand new touchscreen technologies that were literally being introduced to the market as we were working. We build our own displays using commercial grade LED backlit screens and components from industry-standard display manufacturers. It’s sharp, bright, and looks great at any angle. But one of the greatest achievements we made is in our custom made NANO GLIDE surface. This ultra thin 2mm glass is coated with a proprietary nano technology that makes the surface slick and smooth, even smoother than the famous touch tablet… and it allows you to work effortlessly. This is the Rolls Royce of touch screens… nothing on the market comes close in terms of performance, feel, and build quality.
The Raven Mixer
The Raven Multi Touch DAW control software puts your DAW right at your fingertips. A large-format multitouch mixer gives you complete access to faders, pans, mutes, solos, sends, automation, and even plugin inserts. Of course on a 46” screen, plugins become the size of 19” outboard gear – you can easily tweak the controls with your fingers. This is a world-first in DAW control. Having the DAW at your fingertips makes it easy to directly interact with the music.
Ever since Reason 1.0 beatmakers, producers, and button-mashers alike have all loved the venerable old Redrum Drum Computer. And it’s easy to see why. Step sequencing drum machines like Redrum or even the classic Roland 808 offer a nearly perfect layout for programming the rhythmic syncopated beats used in so many popular music genres. The 16 buttons, representing the 16 steps in the beat, provide the right blend of predictable beat construction and random experimentation when you want to spice up your beats.
In this micro tutorial, we’ll get you started with drum step sequencing and get familiar with the Redrum’s layout. You’ll soon learn why producers the world over love Kong but also keep coming back to Redrum for that special creative simplicity.
