    Sound on sound run a monthy Reason column but you can’t access it online unless your a subscriber… they release the notes after 6 months so you can read the first article online now:


    Since it’s reason adapted i take it you are rewiring it into pro tools so have a look at this:


    There is also a discover reason section on their homepage, with some pretty in-despth articles on the units and processors etc.:


    Off topic, but a report of Marty O’Donnell’s speech on the audio production of Halo2 at gdc (oh, you’ll need to log on here too if you haven’t already, it’s free though):

    isn’t there a tutorial that comes with RA … not sure i gave my copy away when i sold my full Reason..

    from memory .. fire up reason , add a mixer from the “create” menu ..

    add your dr rex loop player or synth or sampler from the “create” menu ..

    load your patch and play :D

    Reason adapted is a teasing little bundle of numbers though Claire. You have a set number of processors and effects and you have to edit and reord into the host sequencer which is pro tools. So its pretty inflexible; especially cause the midi functionality in pro tools is infamously pretty crap.

    ah.. that’s a bit shite if you can’t use it standalone… i got it free with a FW interface .. along with Live Delta. both stayed in the envelopes..

    maybe they expect people to rewire the Reason and Live together ?

    Live is far more fun :D so i sold Reason before christmas :D

    i have the full version of Live .. so if anyone want Live Delta give me a shout

    Just to clarify, you can record into Reason Adapted via a midi controller of sorts (and edit any param changes in real time)… but you can’t edit on the piano roll etc. So this means exporting the midi data and importing in pro tools to edit, quantise etc. Bit nasty. But it is free.

    I do think you might be able to run it as standalone also, but i don’t understand why you would want to in it’s stripped down form.

    And i agree ableton is good fun.

    To the A-Team music:

    The heart is freed and lightened of a burden that always secretly presses on it, when instances of pure moral resolutions reveal to the man an inner faculty of which otherwise he has no right knowledge,
    the inward freedom to release himself from the boisterous importunity of inclinations, to such a degree that none of them,
    not even the dearest,
    shall have any influence on a resolution,
    for which we are now to employ
    our reason.

    How you can sing those lyrics to the A-Team music is beyond me! Believe me, I’ve tried and the blank stares I got prove it…..

    You can do ’em in an American gung ho accent to the army marching beats at the start before the main theme kicks in ala

    “In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. They promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.”

    That’s it Pete… sing it with me brutha… “The heart is…”

    Ah yes….I didn’t include the opening drumbeat and monologue as part of the song. I have learned from my mistake…. ;)
