Re: UAD Plexi

The Marshall in Reason's Amp (Rock) has too much compression which makes it less useful.

Re: ReasonTalk Community IR ReFill? :)

strict guidelines/rules might be cool to get the quality ok.
someone should supervise the whole ReFill for inconsistency and things like that.
the devil is in the details to make things super useful.

Re: ReasonTalk Community IR ReFill? :)

This might be cool.

Would you use a sweep and an impulse app to build the wav/aif or allow simple "claps hands, record the audio" kinda IR's?

Re: The best compressor.

the RE-2A is my favorite. it's the best software compressor I ever used. and the Mastering Buss Compressor on the SSL is super too (I leave it on almost all the time).

Thanks! Fred confirmed this. He didn't do the Maström. He came in with The Echo and Neptune indeed.

Re: SoundCloud is stupid

Their model was simple: let the user pay for hosting. That is so simple. I payed for hosting my files on Soundcloud since 2008. Super businessmodel. What's wrong with that? When you start working with investors and they start demanding growth it will kill your business. Soundcloud has too much overh...

As for connections. I am on a 120 / 12 Mbit/s connection. Will send large files to clients as well so making copies should be no problem.

Storage/backups/cloud solutions

How do you backup? I am on OSX and use Time Machine. But I also have old files which are not on my current laptop and not in Time Machine either. I have many double copies. I am also wondering if Dropbox or alternative cloud solutions might be better than harddrives/ssd. This is a deep topic I under...

Marcus was a Propellerhead employee when he designed Malström. He then founded https://soniccharge.com

The design of Malström was by Fredrik Hägglund who used to be a Propellerhead employee too but a freelancer at the time.

RX2 quality weirdness

Marco, Are you doing this with Reason while ReWired to Ableton Live, or when running Reason by itself? Without ReWire.  I never ever would use audio-track in Rewire mode since it runs on low res and sounds extremely bad. This is another thing to worry about but the Props have told me that it is by ...

RX2 quality weirdness

As far as I know, it was born out of Robert Henke's desire to have a software utility to play various audio tracks and manipulate those live. That fact is betrayed by the program's name. :) It was meant to create things in a live way using the Session View. Not for playing live per se. Henke works ...

RX2 quality weirdness

It's expected behaviour - importing a rex file to an audio track treats the rex as if it were a wav, tagging the clip with the current tempo set in the project. Thus stretching takes places if you then change the tempo. it doesn't make sense to me. Reason should recognise it's a rx2-file like in Ab...

RX2 quality weirdness

Ableton Live 9 uses a far superior stretch algorithm. Different to 8 and below.. You can drop most file types even Rex2 at any tempo into live and it sorts it out perfectly in most cases. Different animal. Yes this works perfect in Live. The new Pro stretch in Live 9.2 is very good. I have tested i...
