Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Combining software instruments, part of Learning Reason 8.
- A very powerful and deep, yet, easy to use tool…in reason is the combinator.…Rather than talk too much about it,…I just like to show you,…and I think you'll get it that way.…So, I'm going to go to utilities,…and here is the combinator,…and I've just turned that into the rack.…We're not sequencing anything,…so I'll get that out of the way.…Now, if I'm going to combine devices,…I will need an audio mixer to mix these devices.…
In utilities, I have a couple of mixers.…I'm going to choose the little simple one,…the line mixer,…and drag that here into the insert slot.…Now, let's combine some instruments.…I'd like to use the NN-XT advanced sampler.…(piano music)…That defaults to a grand piano tone,…which I think I would like to use.…Looking here, I see that there is a violin section…at my fingertips.…
So, I'm going to bring that in…directly under the existing NN-XT and create a new one.…I see that these both have shown up…on channels in the mixer.…(soft piano music)…I could add a reverb here.…Go to effects,…here's my advanced reverb.…
