Breaking Radio Silence

Hello! Happy New Year!

I've not posted anything for a while as I've had a fair bit to organise, but I've got some great stuff planned for 2012.

Reason 6

I finally have Reason 6 up and running, so all future project files will no longer be compatible with Reason 5 or below (Sorry folks, that's Propellerhead for you). Fear not however, as the vast majority of the patches I post will still be 100% compatible with Reason 4 and 5, and any patches exclusive to 6 will be marked as such. In the mean time, have a look at some screenshots of a recent session, paying close attention to the n

Drum Recording

Over Christmas I did some work with a good friend of mine Matt Dowson, an absolutely stellar drummer and an all round nice guy. We used my mac and interface and his microphone set to do some drum recordings in a church hall, and I'm quite happy with the results. Some video was taken of the day, so once the audio and video are all nicely synced up I'll pop that up.

In addition to this, in the next couple of weeks I'll be carrying out some recordings for my LinnDrum-style sampled drums. As part of my investigative study I'll be recording some one-shots of different drums and then processing them to sound like early sample-based drum machines, like the Linn LM-2 (LinnDrum) and the E-MU Drumulator.

Refill Review

Aside from my plans to carry on using this blog for my Investigative Study, I'll be talking a lot about my collection of Reason Refills. I want to do a (long overdue) review of Reason Pianos, as well as Abbey Road Keyboards, ElectroMechanical 2.0 and Fairlight Platinum by Bitley.

More Synth Patches

I want to explore different synthesizers, so I'll be doing a couple of tutorials on how to program the same patch across a range of different synths. This will be pretty easy for me, since I have Logic, Pro Tools and Reason to hand, as well as my Microkorg XL. I'll continue to upload patches for the Investigative Study as I create them (I have about 8 new patches for that to go up) and there are a few miscellaneous ones to go up to.
