Re: Signal chain

Send effects come (unless specified otherwise) after the channel fader in the SSL. So, all of the SSL dynamics, EQ, and gain adjustments are preserved, as are the sonic adjustments you’ve made with any insert effects. The sends tap off the signal at the very “back end” of the signal path. The except...

Re: 2.5G free samples black octopus

Thank you. Another 2.5GB on top of the already stupid 600GB or so of sampled material not counting SCSI HDDs, ZIP disks, floppies, and internal memories of hardware samplers. The comical part is that I download these and pretty much never touch them again except for drums, which I’ll use if I can’t ...

Re: I have been a GUI snob

If you think about it in a certain type of way: we are ALL GUI-Snobs just for choosing Reason. To my line of thinking, it’s the only “pretty” DAW. Everything else is just sort of form follows function type design

Re: Europa sure sucks at supersaws!

Very handy for making wavetables and hypersaws The key with supersaws isn’t so much the stacked oscillators but the processing afterwards Exactly. The raw oscillators themselves even amongst differing manufacturers like Access, Roland, or PH tend to have only basic and slight differences between th...

Re: Sends housed in Mix Channels

Anyone set up their Sends as Inserts in Mix Channels? https://i.imgur.com/im4hvUq.png https://i.imgur.com/pmNSKfx.png I recently found out about it (it's quite obvious thing to do, if you think about it...) and it's really great, because: - it's much easier to use device chains as single send (they...

Re: Anyone Sequencing Korg Volcas With Reason?

Not the Volca, but I DO sequence the Korg Mootribe using Reason. Most of the tie what I'll do is to record one of the audio "clicks" into the NNXT and then trim the sample so that it is simply the very first impulse and then repeat it at 8th note intervals....the cool part about this is that you can...

Re: Just picked up a Novation Circuit this weekend.

Jim, I’d only add to your comment that you shouldn’t expect too much from the synth in terms of tweakability (at least when you’re not plugged into a computer). The macro knobs are super useful and can be programmed to taste, but a lot of the preset macros leave a lot to be desired. If I program th...

However, layering it with Thor sounds great! I completely disagree. Can you elaborate on what you’re trying to do? Access Virus “generic trance” supersaws, or the original of all, the Roland JP8000 supersaw? They have a fundamentally different sound, however I can teach you how to make both in Euro...

Re: So I Bought An Old Tape Deck And I'm Going To Run My Stuff Through It

No, not a R2R, but an old Sony cassette deck from the 70s. It should arrive any moment now. Going to use it to give my tracks some lo-fi mojo, not necessarily to impart any "warmth". I basically want it to sound like an old cassette recording. I'm really curious to see how this is going to compare ...

Re: Reason Mixer EQ Volume Matching

EQ by its very nature raises the level of the source at the frequency you’ve chosen. In addition, the SSL mixer EQ is extremely broad in “G mode” even at the tightest Q(constant Q)....the “E mode” is a little tighter but is still pretty wide until you get to high dB boosts/cuts (proportional Q) At ...

Re: Reason Mixer EQ Volume Matching

+1 to logue’s comments. Looked into adding that feature to my ColoringEQ but quickly realized it would give a false sense of security. Doesn’t really work that well for compressors either since you can’t predict input gain. Plus, compression can affect perceived loudness which makes the job more di...

You can also send your channels to a 14:2 and use two sends there, bring them in to mix channels and pan them.

Musicians today are so spoiled. :) True! And don't use my Motu for headphone mixes but for connecting my Eurorack! The MOTU with its DC-coupled outputs is really excellent for sending CV out to synths. It can fire off audio pulses to trigger arpeggiators, send perfect 1V/octave CV, and generally cr...

Interesting question! One with a complex answer from me at least. I write my own music for me, channeling my own emotions and thoughts into what I put down into audio.
