You can read a fresh interview at KVR with one of the founding fathers of Propellerhead Software: Ernst Nathorst-Böös. Including a screenshot of prehistoric Reason design.

I was thrilled when I read that Marc Weidenbaum was writing a book on the album ‘Selected Ambient Works Volume II’ of Aphex Twin. I was even more thrilled when I received the book and started reading it. Marc wanted to be interviewed by me about the book. Go ahead and read it!
By applying different techniques than normal volume differences we can create a more Binaural sound. A sound which sounds more real and which has more depth to it.
I’m working on a Dutch documentary doing music, sound design and post-production. The doc needed a few short voice over parts which I recorded yesterday. The voice was delivered by the well experienced Rob Captijn. I recorded him in my home studio.
Since a couple of weeks I’m using the brand new dedicated EditorsKeys keyboard for Reason. It’s a great addition for anyone using Reason. The keyboard has a professional studio look and will improve the work flow on operating Reason. Instead of clicking through the Reason menus and toolbars it visualises all Key Commands which you […]
I often hate the Autotune effect. Because it is used in such an unoriginal way most of the time. Pharrell Williams though, he just loves the Autotune. Hell he’s even responsible for Propellerhead choosing the name Neptune for their pitch-correction device in Reason. For those who are now left wondering: Neptunes is the moniker under […]
In general my little helper for solving noise issues is the Expander. And I love using Reason’s build in Expander for that. An Expander works like a “reversed” compressor: instead of limiting the peaks, an Expander will push back the softer sounds and therefore the dynamic range will be expanded. And because of that the […]
There is a serious flaw in Reason 7 which needs to be fixed AS SOON AS POSSIBLE in my opinion because it’s super annoying and makes Reason less usable as a tool for editing audio, remixing etc. The solution is rather simple, so I do hope the Props will address this issue as soon as […]
You can modulate the Volume parameter of the Reason Pulveriser using the LFO in the Tremor section. This is a great way for achieving Tremolo effects. But not only in a traditional sense since this LFO can produce many different types of waveforms including the one I’d like to focus on for today’s experiment: square modulation. […]
Are you ready for an experiment? Well, I am. This month on every working day I will share something interesting I’ve found using a specific Reason device. This month I will focus on the Pulveriser device.
If you’re a songwriter I guess you will fall in love with the music of Todd Rundgren at some point. At least, I did. I have heard Todd play live several times. Last time was a month ago in Amsterdam at the Paradiso. He used a large touchscreen running Windows with Reason on it. Even […]
Sloppy timing is not a groove, and sloppy timing generated by a machine is even worse. So yeah we worked very hard to get a great groove going, but we almost never got to the level we heard on other people’s CD’s at the time. Probably what we needed was a Fairlight or a Synclavier. […]
