The Synchronous Timed Effect Modulator is a creative device from Propellerhead, where you can draw your own curves to control up to four built-in effects (Distortion, Filter, Delay, and Reverb) and their parameters. Here, I’ve put together a 13-page PDF guide to cover the device, soup to nuts. And still for the same price as a latte.
Synchronicity is an effects-based ReFill using the Synchronous Rack Extension from Propellerhead Software. This ReFill contains many different experimentations and uses for Synchronous, with its four built-in effects: Distortion, Filter, Delay, and Reverb. There are many examples of Beat Repeaters, Ring Modulated Glitch presets, Ambience generators, Vibrato & Tremolo effects, and all kinds of Filtering techniques.
In this tutorial, I’m going to walk through an interesting idea of taking images and turning them into sounds. Then I’ll go over a few different ways you can use these sounds musically within Reason. I’ve been toying with this idea for some time, and have found it useful for new and creative sound ideas. I’ve also found certain image types that work well, and others that don’t. So let’s start to explore the concept of synesthesia and how it can be combined inside Reason.
I recently challenged folks on Facebook to create an organic soundscape (https://www.facebook.com/groups/R101Challenge/). By organic, I mean sounds that come from nature and evolve naturally. This tutorial will highlight a few ways you can use Reason to create some of these organic sounds. Or at least, I’ll try and point you in the right direction.
In this second installment of the Chenille BBD Ensemble Chorus RE, I wanted to take a look at some of the interesting things you could do with it. If you think that this device is simplistic, you’d be dead wrong. It’s a highly capable chorus device, with a lot of spirit all its own. And if you’ve used other devices by JP, such as Ammo, you’ll be quite at home tweaking this device’s parameters as well. Wide stages and delay range, two versatile LFOs with a broad assortment of parameter settings, dual depth/rate controls, dual filter, separate left / right mixing and feedback settings, and 3 different Phase modes, additional voices (Unison) — not to mention all the CV and automation options — all make this device one helluva Chorus!
The following is provided as an introduction to the Chenille BBD Chorus Ensemble. You can consider this Part 1 of a 2-part expose on the device. In this first part, I will introduce you to the device, and it’s many parameters in a short summary. In the next part, I will delve further into the device itself, and show off some of the things it can do, offering a few of my own patches. Think of this as the technical side of things, and use it to become familiar with the ins and outs of the device. This is an infinitely powerful chorus device, that goes well beyond the stock Reason CF-101 in many respects. And in my opinion, it’s a top notch device that is well worth a look. I highly recommend giving it a try if you haven’t already.
In this issue, I’m going to showcase two posts that deserve honorable mentions, just to give you the vibe of what the forum was like and those who felt strongly for / against it. I also thought it would be fitting to end this series on a note of finality. The few last comments that center around the Forum’s demise. And say thank you to the Propellerheads for the end of an era. Thank you folks!
In this installment, I decided to post some other random PUF pieces that didn’t fit anywhere else. All of these were requested by PUF members for archiving. As usual, if you see your name and want to be removed, let me know and I’ll be happy to remove your post. But this might give everyone a little glimpse into the Forum that once was, and what was scheduled for annihilation by the Props. Let’s get started.
In this installment of “what to keep from the PUF” as a time capsule for future generations, I thought I would post a few of my own favorite posts I’ve started over the years. To highlight some of my own topics I’d like to save. Call me selfish or nostalgic or whatever, but I put a lot of my heart in these posts and I, for one, want to preserve them. Not to mention, a few of these still ring true today, especially #3 and #5. Go Props go!
