Scanner with The Post Modern Jazz Quartet

The blending of jazz and electronics has been one of the more difficult musical challenges, as it attempts to humanize the machine or mechanize the free spirit of improvisation. It's a very tricky balance to get right, as they can be on a collision course with each other. Bringing together the world renown electronic artist, Scanner who has collaborated with artists from every imaginable genre: musicians Bryan Ferry, Radiohead and Laurie Anderson with jazz masters Matthew Shipp, Khan Jamal, Michael Bisio and Michael Thompson has created a post modern sound encased in a traditional form. The results are unparalleled. Scanner becomes part of the PMJQ, creating cinematic textures that take a familiar jazz quartet sound and transforms it into a modern day experience in this world of bits and bytes.

Using Ableton to provide control voltage for a Moog Slim Phatty

Seeing the Slim Phatty retaining CV (control voltage) inputs I wondered how
well line level voltage would work as a control source. The answer:

Pretty Damn Well!

This is a tutorial/demo on how I pulled this off and everything you need to know!
The Moog (notes) are controlled via the MPK25 but the filter and pitch modulation
is via the CV inputs.

Yes - Line level (analog) signal has voltage. I learned some of these tricks about a
year ago - once thinking CV was far out and not so easy to gain control of - wrong.

The modulation of the SF can be controlled with amazing accuracy and synchronization
using an application like Ableton. The possibilities are endless - I am still trying to
understand where I would like to go with this idea. For now - you have the basic
knowledge - please post back ideas and break throughs! Thx.

Microsound Prototypes Granular Synthesis: Glisson, Pulsar, Grainlet, Trainlet

Arduino controlled casio keyboards and samplers

In this video I'm controlling 2 casio SK1s, a casio SA-38 and 3 SAW
voice memo recorders with an Arduino. I've wired a bunch of the
pushbuttons on the different devices to the arduino and have written
some simple code to sequence it all.
-The SA-38 is useful because it has a pushbutton for each drum voice.
By interfacing this with the arduino I'm able to write and play drum patterns.
-Then I wired up the "one key play" buttons on the SK1s. The SK1
lets you record a sequence then play it back one note at a time every
time you hit "one key play".
-Finally I wired up the "record" and "play" buttons on 3 little voice
memo recorders. These record sound from the keyboards and play
it back. They're pretty noisy but add some nice variety to the overall sound.
The whole project was pretty easy and is very flexible, especially if you're
a savvy arduino programmer. Tutorial coming soon to Make magazine.

52 Reason / Record Tips - Week 39: Compression Tips for the Best Mixes

For many people, compressors are the biggest obstacle between them and a
professional mix. But if you know how to use them, compressors are your best
tool to achieve that professional mix. Most early interactions with compressors
involve cranking them up until they sound horrible and then removing them -
wondering why anyone would even want to use them in the first place. This
week I'll explain what a compressor's actually doing and how to make it work
the way you want.



Nasty mutant colorflex dubstep. Everything is almost completely
sequenced from colorflex. Logic is sending scene changes to color-
flex . Colorflex is sequencing 16 bus sends in logic, Triggering
Maschine, Triggering Alchemy and Buffeater and the instances of
Absynth are input fx as well as triggering samples via Audio mods.
Bass sounds I originally sampled from an elektron machinedrum.
It was a twisted clap or LT? Can't remember but I do remember
setting hi retrigger rates and down tuning alot. Mp3 can be down-
loaded via my soundcloud page.

Animation modulating Audio via MIDI CC

Another experiment using Quartz Composer. I’m using some Low Frequency
Oscillators in Quartz Composer to animate layers of my logo graphic. These
LFO’s are also sending MIDI CC messages which are being received by Kore’s
preset morphing parameter:

-There is an LFO animating the rotation of the logo, this is also modulating
the Y axis of the Kore morph parameter grid.
-There are also some LFO’s animating the several radius diameters of the logo,
these are modulating the X axis of the Kore morph parameter grid.

I have also assigned a knob on my MIDI controller keyboard to the frequency
of the LFO in Quartz Composer which is modulating the radius movement
(which in turn is modulating the X parameter in Kore:) Obviously I could just
modulate Kore with MIDI (or the dedicated Kore controller which I also own;)
but the exercise here was to have the animation movement modulate some
audio. The audio loaded in Kore is from the Reaktor Animated Circuits soundpack.

-008' BerkleeMusic Contest

Fellow Reason user -008' has entered the Berkleemusic "Live from
Studio You" contest, which is designed to highlight the work of
Berkleemusic's best and brightest students. Let's help a Reason user win....
Vote daily!

Hi I'm -008'

I have been passionate about music since I was very young.
At 10 yrs old I wrote & recorded my first song with my brother.
We used my Dad's 4 track tape machine. I've always played
guitar, bass, drums and keys but when I first got hold of a laptop
and software, I was hooked! Growing up analog and going all
digital was tough for me and I wanted to learn more.
Soon after that I was enrolling at BerkleeMusic.

Taking the online courses helped me in many ways from boosting
my confidence to training my ears. Crtitical Listening really got me
hearing on multiple levels, while courses like The Future of Music
opened my mind to new ideas and ways of thinking. I graduated
a little over one year ago with my Masters Certificate. I had never
used Propellerheads Reason before Berklee but, after learning it in
school, I started a blog, that grew to a full-fledged website.
008refills.com now has 16 original Reason ReFills (8 free!) and there
are currently over 4,500 subscribers downloading and using my
sounds worldwide. The Propellerheads themselves have my "Hitman
Drums vol.2" in their own Prop Shop, and most recently, there are a
few -008' effect patches built into the Record Factory Soundbank!

These successes, however small, are a direct result of my Berkleemusic education.
Going to school was the best thing I ever did for my music, and it shows!

Thank you for reviewing my submission,

How to Make a Dubstep Whomp Bass in Reason

Dubspot instructor and Dubstep producer Chris Petti shows you how to make
the infamous 'dubstep whomp bass' in Propellerhead Reason & Record. The
sound which has been described by many as a processed voice or croaking
sound, can be created using synthesizers and effects processors. Starting with
a basic analog saw wave, which you can get by creating a Thor synthesizer
with blank patches in the rack window, set the Keyboard Modes to mono and
polyphony and release polyphony to 1. Go into the Show Programmer and set
the Analog Osc octave knob to 3. Create a second Noise Osc and route it to
Filter 1. With these two oscillators combine, you hear mixture of white noise
and saw wave. Set the Low Pass Ladder Filter mode to 24 type 1, the frequency
to 184 Hz, and the resonance to 93, and also zero-out the envelop amount
(set to 0.) After these initial steps, create two Scream 4 Distortion units which
should autoroute to Thor, follow Chris' instruction on setting the Damage
Control and Damage Type to get to fatten and warm up the sound, as well as
shave off some harsh frequencies from the top.

52 Reason / Record Tips - Week 38: Using Neptune for Sound Design

Neptune has its roots in pitch correction and harmony generation. In fact, that's
exactly what it was designed for. But one of the things that makes Reason/Record
such a creative environment to work in is that nothing has to be used in the way
it was designed. In fact, sometimes the best ideas come from the misuse and
abuse of a device. This week I'll show you ways you can tweak your sounds with
Neptune to create effects and tonalities otherwise impossible.

Ableton Live Tutorial 'Follow Action'

Ableton Certified Trainer and Dubspot Instructor Thavius Beck takes us through
the follow action tool in Ableton Live in this video tutorial. Follow action is a tool
within the launch window. It allows you to play or program an audio or MIDI clip
for a certain amount of time; essentially creating sequences within your session
view with options to randomize clips without committing things to your arrange-
ment view. Thavius demonstrates how to use this tool with a warped four-bar
drumbreak loop, from which he extracts a one-bar drum loop, and alters the
rhythm and timing of the loop to make the groove more fluid and flexible, not
looping or repetitive. Thavius also demonstrates the usefulness of legato mode
-- which allows you to trigger clips without interrupting the main groove;
no matter when the clip is actually triggered.


Dr OctoKong Looper (Part 2)

For Reason 5 users, in this part, I'll show you how you can use a

Soundcells' Thor Source Version 3!

Harald from Soundcells sent me an e-mail about their latest and greatest offering....

Thor Source Version 3 - the Moog Source ReFill:

"Thor Source V3" - when Thor first saw the light of day Soundcells couldn't resist to test his strength by comparing him to a well known classic from Moog: the Source. Thor's modular design gave them the chance to rebuild the Source's details with great accuracy. Then Soundcells copied their favorite Source patches with great ease into Thor and after this they managed to take those sounds numerous steps further. The sounding results however stayed amazingly close to the Source's character. In this ReFill's documentary folder you'll find proof of this. Thor makes the Source polyphonic and velocity sensitive as well. By now you'll understand that this ReFill goes way beyond only emulating the past. Thor Source offers deep and fat basses, retro and nu style leads, wonderfull keyboard sounds, mouth watering pads, analog drums and more. Version 2 added four sampled raw oscillator settings from the original Moog Source, new combinator patches and new backdrops - with version 3 this ReFill comes with even more samples from the Source...

And let´s not forget to mention the 25 new version 3 combinator patches based on those new samples.Those will be there to give your music an extra greasy analog retro-Moog-bite.
Tweak the rebuild Source sounds in whatever direction using Thor´s tools or just "build" your own Moog Source while using the raw oscillator samples and/or the sampled Source sounds embedded within our NNXT patches. Please always take your time to try every button and knob as well as the Modwheel to get a good taste of all flavours these 214 fine combinator patches will present you with!

Thor Source Version 3 Contents:

- The 25 original documentary patches as described above plus 25 contemporary velocity versions of these patches.

- 25 legato versions of the documentary patches, and also 25 legato versions of the contemporary velocity patches.

- 69 "processed" combinator patches making full use of Reason's devices like the RV7000, the Scream and other gear.
This folder is subdivided into 4 sections: bass, keys & leads, misc and pads.

- 45 combinator patches based on the sampled raw oscillator settings and the fully sampled Source sounds which were
added to version 2 and version 3.

- 35 new and grooving rex loops.

Price is 19.90€ until the end of November.

Benjolin Light Synth 3

The sound in this video is all made using one my custom built synth
that you can read about here. The synth is made up of two complex
analog oscillator/modulator/filter circuits, a light control circuit and
a modified BOSS RSD 10 sample/echo module. I've started playing
with a cool feature of the RSD 10 which is that it can use external
oscillators to control the playback rate of the echo and an external
clock to trigger the echo repeats. I'm using a sequenced oscillator
to melodically modulate the pitch of the echo of the other oscillators
and I'm using the sequence clock to trigger the echo. its a cool sounding
effect that gives a relatively normal sequence a bunch of cool quirks
to play with.

out-blast each other on the radio, in clubs, and iPods earbuds around the world.

When you want to "go nuclear" in the loudness war, your best weapon of choice
