Make beats with loops

Make beats with loops: Learning Reason 9
Make beats with loops: Learning Reason 9

Constructing songs with loops is not only a fast way to work; loops often have a particular feel that cannot be achieved with programming or live recording alone. In Reason 9, the Dr. Octo Rex Loop player provides an easy way to trigger loops and program changes between loops, and also allows fast and powerful sculpting of the sound and playback behavior of a loop. Music producer and songwriter Matt Piper shows how to play loops with Dr. Octo Rex, how to program changes between loops, how to trigger and rearrange individual slices of the loops, and how to use the resonant filter and Slice Edit Mode on Dr. Octo Rex to dynamically sculpt the sound of a drum loop.
