"With some of the new Rack Extensions in Reason 6.5 I thought I'd try some good old triggered effects! Buffre and the Sugar Bytes stuff are especially good for this.
Light buttons trigger Buffre, Blue buttons trigger Slice Arrangers, Filter Pattern, Spectralizer and The Echo
The track is a Tekken Tag Tournament remix I made for a competition, originally by Akitaka Tohyama and Sanodg. Remix can be heard here."
"Just got this unit back from my tech and thought I'd make a quick demo for y'all. I've got an arpeggio playing on the Arturia Minibrute analog synthesizer running into the Roland SRE-555 Chorus Echo."

"Contributor Martin Delaney, aka mindlobster, presents a tutorial on novel modulation templates for Lemur: LFO Studio, Kontrolab 2 and CCell. You can use these templates to control any synth module, whether hardware or software."All three templates are free downloads @ liine.net
"Scanning through a selection of sounds created in Twisted Tools excellent S-Layer. Time flew by while recording and ended up with a 50min video in which I edited it down. I created the sounds using the included sound bank. I'm using an Elektron Machinedrum to trigger the scenes and program changes as well as a few parameter locks on certain midi cc's. In the short time I've been using S-Layer I have come up with an astonishing amount of material to use in projects and is a lot of fun."

"Today we cover a classic Black Moon track: "Who Got Da Props". We also talk about why getting modern equipment to sound like old gear is almost impossible."
"showing how they cope in extreme compression situations, how they differ and their various merits."
"Bob Dylan made Rock 'n' Roll history when he plugged in an electric guitar at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. Now a New Jersey woman thinks she may have that very guitar in her attic. The HISTORY DETECTIVES think so too! See the investigation unfold Tuesday, July 17th at 9/8c."
"FXpansion DCAM Dynamics offers a variety of different flavours of high-quality circuit-modelled dynamics processing. The included plugins are perfect for everything from taming tricky transients to heavy, creative sculpting effects and everything in between. Classic console bus compression and channel limiting amp processors are provided alongside a transient shaper and frequency-selective compressor making DCAM Dynamics a great all-purpose dynamics toolbox."
"This video is of TWO linked NovaDrones WITH REVERB. I don't normally add effects to my instruments for videos but it sounds so good that I couldn't resist. I'm currently looking into methods of building reverb into future models. This is the third iteration of the NovaDrone I have designed over the past few months. One of the main developments over the last version is the addition of a link port which lets you plug multiple units together to share power and mix the audio to a single output.
The NovaDrone is an analog sound and light synthesizer. It is completely open source and hackable. I will be selling (as of august 2012) PCBs, kits and assembled units or you can just use the plans to build your own."More information on the NovaDrone at CasperElectronics.com

"This movie is the first of a series of mini tutorials, exploring the range of instruments and effects available in Reason's new Rack Extensions feature. Korg's Polysix is the first instrument made by an external manufacturer to be included in Reason, so this is an exciting development!

"DarkStar is a monster analogue modelled synth. With its 4 oscillators you can easily create the sounds you need. In this video Andre gives us an overview of the DarkStar synth's main features, with a examples of the synth at work in a track."
"In this tutorial video I do a full review and tutorial on the main features of the new Sugar-Bytes monophonic bass synth, Cyclop. Cyclop is a modulation monster, with the huge wobble knob, fx knob, sound knob and effects sequencer. You can choose from 9 distortion modes and 6 oscillator / synthesizer types including super saws, analog sync, fm, transformer (wavetable / granular engine), the additive spectromat, and the phase stressor phase distortion sound engine.
Anyone who's a fan of dub step and video arcade games will love this one! It has a built in video game and the whole interface looks very Atari.
It's certainly found a place in my plugin library, which is a hard thing to do these days. I'm enjoying getting to know it better and mangling sounds with it in my tunes. Enjoy!"
