How many compressors do you need? I have bought many compressors in my life. Way too much I should say. Because at the moment I am only using one, the Fircomp 1. Why is it so great? The cool thing about the Fircomp is that even with the attack at 0 it still sounds great! […]

Is the Mäag EQ the most natural sounding EQ ever? I think so.
The character of the RE-2A comes from a very useful peak reduction method + additional harmonics which are generated by saturating the signal.
The Echo is one of my favourite effect devices in Reason. Both the OVDR (overdrive) and TUBE settings are super useful for adding some analog grit to your sound. The TUBE setting creates a nice and strong EVEN 1st harmonic even when the Drive is at 0. Check out my video below. You can see how I […]
We are obsessed by old and analog sound. Even anno 2015 digital is often considered as a kind of a flat format lacking soul and warmth. What do you think? True or not?
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 […]
Gotta love that tune. Gotta love how that drumsound gets mixed in with a room sound every measure after the guitar riff. Mixed by the hands and ears of engineer Ken Scott. Mixed in real time like a live performance. One of the not so secret ingredients, other than the towels on Ringo’s toms and […]
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.

This way you combine both the original channel and it’s parallel channel(s). For example you can compress the parallel channel with any compressor you would like and blend the two.
