Get up and running with Reason 8. Learn how to record, edit, mix, and master audio tracks with this professional-level music production software.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Matt Piper and this is Up and Running with Reason 8. Reason is a music-production environment that brings the feel and features of a professional recording studio to your computer. In this course, we'll start by going over everything you need to know to get set up and to become comfortable in the Reason environment. Next, we'll record music into Reason with guitar, bass, and software instruments and make beats with Reason's built-in drums, percussion, and audio loops. You'll even see how easy it is to sample your own sounds.
After that, we'll look at how to edit your recording with Reason's audio and MIDI editing tools. And production techniques, including vocal pitch correction and time stretching. Next, I'll show you how to mix your recording using Reason's studio-quality mixer and effects processors. Finally, I'll walk you through exporting your work for collaboration, or for delivery to a mastering engineer, and how to master a recording yourself. So if you're ready to go, let's get Up and Running with Reason 8.
