Today I want to zoom in on the greatness of the Pulveriser device for bass sounds. Not only has the Pulveriser some funky filters but also its envelope Follower is a great bonus for extra funkiness. For our today’s example I’ve made a fat sounding bass with just a Thor, Pulveriser + Spider Audio.

A Comb filter adds a delayed version of the signal to itself with adjustable feedback (controlled by the Peak knob in the Pulveriser). It’s a rather basic form of filtering but the results can be very dramatic. Reason’s Pulveriser has a Filter section which has a wide range for creating these Comb filter effects. Set […]
Today week number 3 of the Pulveriser series ends. I guess it’s time for some questions so let’s do an Open Mic. Please leave your comments and let me know: what subjects on the Pulveriser are not yet covered? do you have a special trick you’d like to share? what kind of patches are you […]
For today I want you to think about STEREO as a 2 channel system. Both channels can play anything you’d like. So for today think about STEREO as a dual MONO system.
The Pulveriser has a Trig button for its envelope follower which triggers a modulation signal based on the settings of the Attack and Release parameters. So you can play this button to create different modulation effects. Which is cool.
Today I will show you that it is very easy to build your own alternative limiter using the Pulveriser. Limiting the peaks A limiter limits the peaks. So when a signal passes a threshold the signal will be decreased in volume. So to create a limiter we need: a threshold device a device which can […]
Today I want to share a simply but super effective usage of the Pulveriser, one that will change the compression amount dynamically. Compressing the peaks Add the Pulveriser to your rack. Let’s try using it in the Master section this time, as a Mastering effect. Now hit the Tab-key for connecting the back of the […]
Let’s have a look at the back of the Pulveriser in Reason: Yesterday I wrote a blogpost on Frequency Modulation so for today I want to focus on the other modulation option: Amplitude Modulation. Amplitude Modulation is easy to explain: volume modulation. One signal is forcing the other signal to respond dynamically in volume/amplitude. With […]
A super interesting but not yet super famous feature of the Pulveriser can be found at the back of this device. The Pulveriser accepts Audio Inputs for modulating. Audio modulating audio, which is really cool!
Clicks, ticks & statics The static noises of vinyl records sometimes adds something rather unique to music in my opinion. Those tiny rhythmic offsets are pleasant for the ears and makes the music sound less even, less boring. For years and years I’m creating these kinds of noises with the synths in Reason. The SubTractor […]
You can use the Follower of Pulveriser for shaping CV transients. You can do this by either use CV or audio as input signal. By using the Attack and Release parameters of the Follower you can shape the Modulation Output (CV) on the backpanel.
The Tremor section in Pulveriser is an LFO which can modulate the Filter Frequency parameter and/or the main output Volume parameter. You can set the Rate to a specific value and the modulation will occur in that tempo. What I will show you in today’s example is how you can change that tempo, that Rate […]
