Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating drumbeats with Redrum Drum Computer, part of Learning Reason 8.
- There are many ways to make beats in Reason…and one of them is with the Redrum Drum Computer.…So I'm just gonna open that right now.…And press F3 to minimize the browser.…And you can play Redrum like any instrument in Reason…by using an external MIDI controller keyboard,…or a drumpad controller.…but where Redrum really shines is…with its step sequencer.…So I'm just going to use the kit…that is loaded by default into Redrum.…
And press the run button.…And now you can see the red LEDs…going from left to right above the 16 steps…in the sequencer.…If you look above that, you'll see…that there are 10 numbered channels.…Each one with a different drum sound.…From left to right, generally the kits…are arranged with bass drum, a couple of snare drums,…toms and percussion, and then high hats…and other symbols on the right.…So the bass drum channel is selected right now.…So when I punch the step buttons in the sequencer,…I will be laying in bass drum hits.…
So I'm gonna just make a little four on the floor…bass drum pattern.…
