Got any questions about Reason? Ask away....
why do you suck so much at using it
Dear Mr. Digga, I am new to Reason, I have Reason 2.0 and am trying hard to figure out best way to use it. What advice can you give me on how to get started, I used Acid Pro 4.0 and samples you know, but I want to make a transition. Let me know sup.
p.s. Wong your a biaaatch!!
<--never used it...but i am curious as to how's the midi sequencing using outboard gear...and is it intuitive/easy compared to cubase..
I have a question about the Rex looper. I play the preview of the loop and then tempo is set to a certain speed... then when i export the loop.. the tempo goes to what i have set on reason. Is there a way to keep the tempo the same or change it once i export it?
To be able to use Reason effectively you will need a fast computer, a pro level sound card and an USB midi keyboard. There is no getting around it. With the addition of sound FX modules and extras features, Reason can tax CPU pretty hard.
For transitioning, find things Reason thats similar to what you use and go from there. Get comfortable with one device instead of tackling the whole program at once. The manual and helpfiles make for excellent resources.
Learn about the main sequencer first. It ties everything together. Then take on the Redrum, then Dr.REX, then Subtraktor, then the NN-19...once you got those down well, then go after the souped up version of those modules like the NN-XT....
As you know Reason doesnt use midi out, but through Rewire technology, you can use Reason like another module right along with your other hardware modules with Cubase. I've played with several program using Rewire, and Cubase was the most intuitive to learn. You basically treat it like a VSTi and go from there....
Remember having both Reason and Cubase running at the same time can tax your CPU, so if you havent already, I recommend getting a 2GHz CPU or better.
No. The Dr. Rex plays at whatever the tempo of the main sequencer is set to. If you want the loop to play faster, then you will have to double the speed of the main sequencer tempo and sequence everything except the Dr. Rex at half the speed, meaning if your track is 24 bars at 70 BPMs before, it will be 48 bars at 140 BPMs afterwards, and your Dr.REx loop can play at 'normal speed'.
When you think they gonna have a fuckin midi out for reason
that shit sucks usin it through cubase
i like doin it all in one that'd be tight
Propellerheads probably wont do it. Its not in their best interest.
I can't figure out how to make strong powerful string melodys in reason, any suggestions?
borrow the melody from a demo song on the proppelerhead site?
so you mean to tell me after all this time i've been hearing the hype about reason...it doesnt even have midi out!? Well i guess that defeats the purpose of me even trying it out...i was only considering trying it out to see how the midi sequencing is for my module/keyboard..i was hoping to find out it was easier/more intuitive...oh well....not really insterested in its sounds/synthesis...i guess it would be nice for peeps that use the sounds and synthesizer within it though...i guess i'll stick to Fl studio and cubase....
yeah that is pretty wierd, why the hell does reason not have midi out? ima make a topic about it at the propellerheads.se board
Shit it'd be tight is fuck if it did
So i can hook my module directly with it instead of all that fuckin rewire bullshit
maybe if we got enough folks to say they wanted to add a midi out we could get it??/
DOPE thread..im gonna have some questions later..
what use does the nn19 have when i only ever use the nn-xt?
you can load any .wav into the nn19
you can do that with the nnxt too?
