Hi All

I figured I'd start with a list of all the articles and Tutorials I posted at PUF. Just in case ;)

Composition
  1. Writing a Piece of Music – simple Theory – very basics of chord progression and chord notes
  2. Arranging a Piece of Music – simple Theory – the sense of story
  3. Re-Voicing & Arranging Music – a real life example
Sounds
  1. Reason Synths – a quick comparison
  2. Signal Routing & simple Logic – if you wire it, they will dance
  3. Why Making Drums Sound BIG is Difficult – basics of drum creation
  4. Compressing Drums – squishdy squidge
  5. Build Your Own Reverb Unit – this is your space + Patch
  6. Creating External FM in Reason – nasty, nasty, oh you nasty boy! + Patch
  7. Korg MonoPoly RE v.s. Thor – my cloth ears + Patch
  8. Korg MS-20 Mini v.s. Reason 7 – kinda silly but hey
  9. Doepfer Dark Energy v.s. Thor – ooh to be ah + Patch
  10. Making Reason more Analog – Reason v.s. KingKORG + Patch
  11. Samplers as Synthesizers – and why it can be so good (or bad)
  12. Blamsoft Distributor in Reason 7 – maybe I oversold it but it is still cool
Mixing
  1. Mixing In Stere-erio – get the balance right
  2. Mixing in Stere-erio – conclusion – making stereo out of nothing at all
  3. Mixing in Mono – now the stereo is gone, I’m just one
  4. Compressing Drums – how to get ‘em to sit in the mix and not DESTROYer it
  5. Bet you didn’t know BASS is the Enemy in Mixing Music – when too much is just too much and how to fool the kids all the time
  6. Mixing with Groups in Propellerheads Reason – out of date now but still good to know
  7. How to Mix Well – the Zen of being a Master
  8. Mastering – Master & Servant, the Final Fantasy
Others
  1. How to transfer a Vinyl Record to Digital (CD, mp3 etc.) – get it right!
  2. Novation Bass Station – a passing folly
  3. Gear Lust – don’t do it, get away from the gun
  4. The Post-Album Slump – writer’s block and how to tear down the wall

Is it possible to make tutorials list sticky? Or just add new links to one, common list.

It would probably be better to make a new thread for each tutorial or if everything is in this one it will become crazy.

Of course if everyone keeps replying to my post I will get to feel pretty special  :angel:

Benedict we've done this thing on our forum ( reason france )
one topic with all tuto. ( all link for each topic/entry)
http://forum.reasonfrance.fr/tous-les-t ... t5252.html

and on the sub-category Tutorials & techniques
all users can open a topic per entry for a tuto.

the best way to keep it this forum section clean et helpfull is to have a system which user can submit a tuto then moderator and admin can create the topic with all purpose by users like this
http://forum.reasonfrance.fr/minibrute- ... 17730.html

but need more management and works for the admin and moderator

Hey Benedict, 

I'm very happy to see you here, and glad to see you settling in and creating some structure for this forum already!
I'm thinking this should probably be a sticky, but don't know if this forum software allows it. 
[edit - it's called "pinning", and this thread has now officially been pinned!]

But welcome, thank you, and hope to see you dig in and make this your new home for tutorials etc. Anything I can do to help, just let me know!
:)

Thanks guys. I mean to write a few more articles but I distract myself.

New album is mostly done (just the shouting left to do) and then maybe I can do some. Requests considered.
