Next month I will be creating a new sound package, a ReFill for Propellerhead Reason users. It will contain at least 200 patches for the Pulveriser device (including patches of the Pulveriser used in a Combinator of course). It’s my tribute to the Pulveriser because I think it’s a super creative device which has many […]

Many music people nowadays take the academic route. Some of them are overly concerned imo about the sound quality of a DAW system. They often start comparing DAW software, using spectrum analysers, talking about digital summing and stuff like that.
Building a DIY synth in Pulveriser is possible. And it’s not even that hard to do. Really!
For today’s example of What Can Be Done With The Pulveriser I’m using the Pulveriser as an effect to create those typical pumping sounds you get when using a side chain compressor. I’m not using a side chain compressor though for this demo, it’s just the Pulveriser added as an effect device for Dr.OctoRex playing […]
This week when I wrote about the Comb Filter of the Pulveriser but I didn’t tell you it can be used for Phasing, Chorus and Flanging effects. It makes the Pulveriser one of the best effect devices in Reason for these types of sounds. I also wrote about using the Tremor for Tremelo or Lesie effects. […]
Dubstep music is related to dub music. And Dub music grew out of reggae music. Like they say, art always builds on the past, which is true.
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 […]
In the 60’s when you would tell Ringo Star, Charlie Watts, Mitch Mitchell or any of those guys that one day lots of people would prefer to dance to the beats of a drum machine they would laugh at you, right? As we all know this turned out to be reality.
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.
