Thanks again to everyone who joined me last night - really glad I decided to bring this Q&A forward a week as I really enjoyed the chilled vibe throughout, and there were some great questions asked during the chat so plenty to go through! If you missed it, you can check it out over on YouTube here.



Next week I fully intend to write another tune from scratch. Hope to see some of you there again! :)

Another great session, looking forward to next weeks.

I do have a follow up question about the glitch machine, is there a way to create it that would keep the samples bpm correct, I'm guessing nnxt is out of question. Could bounced rex samples in drocto work?

Cheers! I'd love to figure out a way to get the breakbeat-y chain chucking out stuff that's always tempo-correct, but I think that's a project in itself. If I get a free hour or two I might play around with that :)

Watch through to the end as it gets very interesting.

Well... after lurking here since the creation of Reasontalk, I just watched the recording of your last livestream and I feel compelled to make my first post to thank you. I thought I'd watch 10 minutes or so, but found myself sitting through the full two hours. Some great insights into workflow and techniques. Awesome. Looking forward to the next one.

I've seen that before (Paul's videos are great btw, I still need to catch up on yesterday's RS stream!) and was thinking of doing something similar using the same Evolution/Matrix triggers I'd used before. Might not be a bad approach for tomorrow, actually! Thanks for the link :)

Should have guessed you had seen it, I stumbled upon it while looking info about RS stream guest.

Is that a hint a genre? DnB maybe.....

Tonight (Thursday 23rd) I'll be streaming at 7pm BST - this time I'll be doing one of my usual music-making livestreams, during which I'll be writing a complete tune from scratch over the course of a couple of hours or so. I'd originally planned on doing something with a more uptempo feel, but my current mood seems to be leaning much more toward doing something downtempo with more glitchy elements so I'll probably be doing something more along those lines.

Would love to see some of you there again, I always really enjoy the chilled atmosphere in the chat and I'll be taking questions & suggestions throughout. Cheers!

You can check out the stream here, tonight at 7pm BST

Hey Adam though I would give a heads up on my first question pre stream.

Any chance you can explain a classic FX Chain, and how one might go about creating something close in Reason?

I have two in mind, both from the M1 and both piano based they're Piano 8 & 16 patches.

I think in the M1 vst they might be call stereoPno 1 & 2

Thanks a ton to everyone who made it last night! Really appreciate you stopping in and getting involved :)

For those who missed it, I've since uploaded the stream to YouTube and you can check it out here.


As always, you can grab the R11 project file and/or MP3/FLAC exports for this track and all of my other live-stream tracks here.
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8ngvvneo5431 ... 22H4a?dl=0

...and if you'd rather just stream the track, I've popped it on Soundcloud here.


Cheers, and I'll be back again same time next week!

Hi Adam just wanted to say that I enjoy your streams, though not live yet. I enjoyed your processes and thoughts, I always enjoy to see/hear how others create. Also wanted to comment on that lead in your latest song, very reminiscent of the "Canada" patch for Complex-1, is this a coincidence?
Hope to catch more of your vids in the future!!! =)

Thanks, glad you're enjoying them!

I can totally see the comparison, but it's a coincidence - I mean, beyond both myself and Tom (who created the Canada patch) having a particular fondness for Boards Of Canada :)

Hahaha, that's awesome to hear, it's such a great sounding patch, and so catches ones attention immediately. I will have to listen to some Boards Of Canada, I mainly listened to Biosphere and Aphex Twin when in an ambient mood in the 90's.

Oh wow, if you've never dived into BoC then you're in for a treat :) I'd suggest starting from the beginning (of sorts) with Music Has The Right To Children, though my personal favourites are probably Geogaddi (but it's a close call between that and MHTRTC) and Tomorrow's Harvest.

On an unrelated note - unfortunately I'm not going to be able to stream this week, but I'll be back next Thursday (6th August) at the usual time of 7pm BST. Sorry about that.

edit: not 7pm BST, 6:30pm BST. See post below.

D'oh! Sorry about that, pesky real-life stuff getting in the way and that. Happy Birthday, hope it's a good 'un - make the most of the sun :)

Hey Adam
I will check out the albums you listed, though my co-worker had heard of Boards of Canada previously and we did put on one of their albums, can't remember which, but it was an early one from the late 90's.
I'm looking forward to this Thursday so I can catch one of your streams, hope you have a great weekend =)

Well... funny you should ask...

I was slightly concerned I was going to have to cancel AGAIN (which I really, really don't want to do) as I've got a meeting at 8pm on Thursday which I can't really change, but instead of missing another week I've decided to move it forward this week by half an hour to 6:30pm.

That means it's going to be a short one as I've got a hard cut-off at 8pm (probably a little before actually to give me a few minutes to switch over), so I'll be using this as an opportunity to do more of a Q&A/free-form kind of session. I don't like messing about with the start time, but it's pretty much the best option this week. Fingers crossed for a return to normal next week so I can get back to streaming some actual music-making!

tl;dr - I'll be starting half an hour earlier this week and it'll be a shorter Q&A/free-form stream.
