Might buy the AD 480 but...

I am trying out the AD 480 and am impressed. For me it's the most natural sounding reverb in Reason. I have the Uhbik A which I bought because it can do nice sounding early reflections. Thing I hate though, and this often keeps me from buying RE's: I can not sell the Uhbik A. I am sure than when I t...

A mockup of Propellerhead Record was shown in the Breaking Bad series

A screenshot of the program was modified to give the viewers the impression that some high tech GPS tracking software was used :)

Yes, I understand the marketing factor here.

I am getting super tired of those voices using these artificial effects. sounds like robots to me.

I want music to sound as human as possible.

RE compressors

I use serial compression sometimes for guitars. getting a totally squashed (hello Pulveriser) sound while staying clean at the same time. I always need to fix that sharp attack of the guitar with one compress and use the second one to make the sustain longer. you can do that with Pulveriser and MCla...

Stems?

The impression I get is that it's a container of 4 stereo tracks. Which is kinda cool for stuff I am doing. For example when I want to send my documentary soundmix to a video-editor but making channels for: 1. full music mix 2. sound effects 3. set noises 4 spoken words / dialog   If Apple starts a...

Anyone just use a laptop for Reason?

For 12 years I am only using laptops. Back in the day I used a Sony, then I moved to MacBook Pro. My current one is a late 2013 MBpro retina model. Super fast, super quiet and mobile.  Sometimes I take my studio with me. I have done work in other studios. Sometimes for Dutch radio and television. I ...

"The Reason sound" - ;-)

If we're talking about OSC's Reason already has so many options. In Thor the Wavetable Osc module has the cleanest OSC's (least distortion), FM Pair on sine is rather clean (less clean than Wavetable) and Analog is dirtier than the rest. But dirty has always proven to be a good thing in music. So in...

I wrote a blogpost about James Jamerson, the great old bass player of Motown. How about his sound?

don't use full range sounds on channels. use a high pass on one channel, low pass on the other one. constrasty sounds.

Yes, that works. Nothing else. Only Audiomatic and volume and panning :D

Automatic for contrasty sounds

I love Audiomatic. It’s full of presets for quickly creating a contrasty sounding mix which is in my opinion a great method for mixing. Read my blogpost:

What about the super combinator?

would be amazing if an update for the Combinator can support switches for like 3 or 4 settings instead of using the rotary which doesn't make sense. in my opinion a Combinator update could simply kill the need to do any IDT kind of stuff. maybe even adding a lock-option for those who don't their Com...

New tuner of Ableton Live

No, I had contact with Propellerhead Support on this. It depends on the audio material. But I noticed it when using loops (rx2) rewired/slaved to Ableton Live. It's a Reason "feature" and the Props are aware of it.  Ah, I seldom use rex loops, good to know, thanks. Though nowadays I mostly use two ...

New tuner of Ableton Live

Most of the time I use either Live or Reason. Rewire has this issue that all audio is rendered in low quality time-stretch because it needs to do the calculations in real-time. I have had issues with it so it's Live or Reason most of the time.  ? Funny, there should be no such thing going on, the R...
