  1. I might be stating the obvious, but it might help to say this anyway: About not hearing anything from the ReDrum: This may seem ridiculously obvious, but it has happened to me--if you have not loaded samples or a kit, it will not produce sound. About the sequencer: The sequencer will play all tracks from left to right simultaneously. The tracks in the sequencer are not like individual patterns. So, if you want one part to come in later than another, you'll have to highlight it and drag it to the appropriate place. Another reason for too much sound: Also, things like the Matrix and the
  2. I listened to Protricity's example, and the tremolo is present continuously, but it does become more pronounced as the note decays. I think this could actually work, but it would sound best with the use of a compressor with the proper release setting. If you really want to get around having to duplicate a track then I guess this may be the best approach. I personally believe that although my approach is slightly more complex to set up, it is ultimately cleaner and more flexible. There are advantas to each, it seems.
  3. The reason I didn't suggest the Matrix approach, as I said in my original response, is because it doesn't synch up properly to notes of all lengths without using some sort of automation to change the pattern or it's rate of play...which defeats the purpose of avoiding mod amount or mod wheel automation. Suppose you have a note which is one bar long, and another note which is one half-bar long. Now, if you want the mod effect to come in, say, half-way through the note, you'd need to create a CV, Curve, or Note pattern which rises after one-quarter of a bar for the half note, and one half of a
  4. I'm not giving this thread priority, I'm trying to be helpful. If you've got a Reason question, you can ask it here. If you're trying to feel better than someone else, you are not contributing. Mark7 wrote that automating the Mod Wheel for each note felt like too much work, and therefor that is NOT the answer he wanted to hear. I don't know what a "syn issue" is, but if you read my tutorial or even just download the demo, it should be pretty clear that my solution fits. Of course, if anyone has a better idea, I'm not going to be one to say mine should still be used. Don't criticize if yo
  5. I just want to keep this near the top so nobody misses it and starts a new topic about Reason. I wish I could make this a sticky...
  6. No need to feel embarrassed. I will gladly attempt to answer any question, no matter how dumb it may seem. I'm here to help as much as possible.
  7. The answer to this is simple: put the ReFills wherever you please! Go to Edit | Preferences, Sound Locations page. Select up to four folders besides the Reason program folder where you would like Reason to check for sound samples, refills, patches, and anything else your song file might require. Happy remixing!
  8. For something as general as this, I'm going to have to point you to the "Getting Started" section of the Reason help file. I also suggest you make sure you have the most recent version. One tip I will give for an absolute beginner is to use the little button on the far left at the top of the bottom pane. When you press it, it will switch between an overall view (which won't let you edit notes) to a track view for whichever track you select. Draw notes with the pencil, move them with the pointer. If you're using the demo and you want to copy and paste, select what you need to copy, and dra
  9. The problem with using the Matrix is that is doesn't sync up to the notes, just to the beat. So, you might end up with modulation at the wrong times. Okay, well, I played around myself, because I have run into this problem before. I have come up with a solution. The explaination makes it look more complicated than it really is, so I recommend simply downloading the simple example here: http://www.waterwave.org/Malstrom%20Delay%20Example.rns What you do is create two Malstroms. One to make the sound, and one to control the mod. The reason for this is because the Malstrom is the only dev
  10. I have been using Reason on its own from version 1.00 to 2.50. If anyone needs any advice, help, or suggestions, ask away.
