Join author J Chris Griffin, as he demonstrates how to record music in Reason 6.5, the virtual music studio used by some of the world's most popular musicians and DJs. Get jump-started with the "Making Music Right Away" chapter, and then dig into the program and discover how to create beats with ReDrum, use loops in Dr. Rex, and record guitars and basses through the built-in Line6 devices. The course also shows how to work with the built-in synths; utilize the collections of samples, patches, and programs known as ReFills; and add effects on several types of tracks. Finally, Chris dives into the Reason sequencer, track types, editing audio and MIDI data, and setting the tempo and click track.
The NN-19 is another unit that has been around since version 1.0, and still offers features that are not found on its more powerful brother, the NN-XT, namely the ability to automate most every parameter on the device. It models the great samplers of the early 1990s and adds a fantastic synthesizer engine to shape the sounds. The NN-19 is the sampler of choice for manipulating a single sample or a multi-sampled single-layer sound.
Let's bring up a couple of patches. Using the Patch Browser, we'll hit MELSTRINGS. (music playing) Keeping in the Mellotron vein, we'll bring up MELCHOIR. (music playing) If we go into the Synth and Keyboard category, we'll find a ton of vintage synth type patches.
Now, these were sampled and recorded directly from the original vintage synths and are available in NN-19. (music playing) And keeping with the Vintage Synth motif, let's bring up a SOLINA. (music playing) Now, utilizing the Synth engine with the mod wheel, we have a little filter action going on.
(music playing) Again, that patch was created with an original ARP Solina. Let's go to the Guitar category and pull up a NYLON Guitar. (music playing) Keeping with the guitar theme, Acoustic Guitar.
(music playing) If we really wanted to step back in time, we'll go to the Voice category and get some Choirs. (music playing) Another choir. (music playing) If a simple sampler will fit the bill, or if you need access to certain sound parameters for automation, NN-19 is the right choice.
It's easy to program and the patches are quickly loaded. This sampler maybe an original item in Reason, but its usefulness is still essential, all these years later.
