Masterclasses. Revisit some old favourites with this section of tutorials. Customise your setup with the Combinator, get down to some intricate drum programming with Dr.Rex, explore the many possibilities of CV routing, and get experimental making a granular synthesis patch. Also demonstrated is a pain-free procedure for incorporating vocals or other audio parts into your Reason compositions.
On the CD are two exclusive Reason 4 ReFills lovingly compiled by the sonic wizards at Loopmasters and TrackTeam Audio. More than 500 patches, samples, groove templates and Thor Combi’s are featured, covering a wide variety of uses and genres, from vocals, d’n’b, hip hop and dubstep to ethnic, house, jazz, trance and more.
MODCOM : is a new project from Ronan Harris which uses analog modular synthesizers and analog sequencers for live sound generation. Sequences and sounds are patched, manipulated, effected, re-patched and mixed live. This kind of performance was common to 70’s synth pioneers who used walls of synths and cables to make sound but now its use will be for 21st century electronic beats, rhythms and soundscapes
