Raise your hand if you’re a Reason user casual..die hard, it doesn’t matter. We need to stick together

Alright, here’s the deal

There’s a lot of good music production in writing communities out there. More specifically, communities that are centered around logic, ProTools… but hardly any that focus on +Propellerhead Reason. The ones that are around are full of spam, died off or are quickly coming to and end due to lack of support.

This saddens me because reason is an excellent program. I’ve used it since version 1.0, I’ve used it on albums ,TV and film, video games, Sound design, Foley.... it’s an all in one application and is truly underrated.

My Goals

Build a resource catered around Reason to help those of you who have an interest in or who use the application.

Network with other Reason heads

Share/Expand knowledge

Now, if you’re interested in this I will add you to my notification list. What this means is whenever I share a Reason tip or technique, you will be emailed when the post goes live.

Getting on the notification list is simple. All you have to do is +1 this post and you’re in!

Behringer has always been an affordable solution and I love them for that, but their quality control….

What’s your experience with this company?


For me it’s always been hit and miss relationship with Behringer. They kick out some good affordable gear with lots of inconsistency, but they’ve improved over the years (a little)

I've used their DI boxes live a few times, and have had a tiny 6 channel desktop mixer for a while. Oh, also have a cheapish midi keyboard that has lasted a longggg time.

Not sure I'd ever buy a mic from them though.

Was stuck in studio D earlier I call it the dirty room

It's generally a bare minimal setup consisting of a mixing console, monitors and acoustic treatment maybe a midi controller or 2 and a recording room.

+Kristian Grundström It's peaceful as not many like working in the small sections of the studio. That's where the magic happens for me.

Hey Reason Heads! since we’ll all be communicating from now it would be wise to get to know which other little

Please share the following Info:

How long you’ve been using reason:

Least favorite units:

Your strengths and weaknesses within the app:

Genre Preference:

Not only will this help us get to know each other little better, but it will also let me know where to start the series.

I don’t want to bore anyone with the basics and I don’t want to alienate those who are ready for advanced techniques. So, this information will help me find a good middle ground.

I'll kick this off

How long you’ve been using reason:

I've been using reason since the very first version. It's the application that made me stop using the MPC 3000

Least favorite units:

hmm… This is kind of a tough one as it's changed over the years... but now I would have to say the vocoder,NN19 sampler and the scream unit

Your strengths and weaknesses within the app:

I'm very proficient with a reason but there still things that I don't use the best of its ability and one of those things will be the SSL mixer.

The reasoning for this is I hate scrolling to find channels it drives me up the wall. It might be time for multiple monitors

That and old habits die hard and I tend to work with the original mixer majority of the time. In fact, a lot of my templates stem from older versions of reason.

That's slowly changing

Genre Preference:

Anything in common time

All right, your turn… Go!

How Long Will AVID Be Around? it always worries me when companies conduct mass layoffs

I’m not a huge fan of Pro Tools, but it is the industry standard for a reason. Normally when a company cuts staff, it means they’re having financial troubles. If this is the case,I can’t say I’m surprised. 

There is a lot of competition out there and Avid is not the greatest company when it comes to support.

If they do close up shop within the next 2-3 years. 

I see Apple picking them up I also see the app still leading the industry.

What do you think?

Amir Khan vs Canelo: can't say I'm confident in either fighter but...

here's what I think

Amir Khan: 

Great speed, weak chin, decent footwork. I see Khan studying the Mayweather/Canelo fight, but executing it poorly.

His inside game isn't good, sucks againsts the ropes.

Canelo:

Good power and respectable speed, but I don't see him keeping up with Khan as far as landing punches. Granted, Amir Khan may not hurt him, but if he makes Canelo miss, those pit pats will add up

What you do think?
