Mo Volans is the master of all things Reasons. That’s why all of us at macProVideo.com thought he’d be the perfect trainer to teach you the fundamentals of beat design. He starts at the very beginning with an in-depth section that teaches you the concepts and shows you Reason’s software machines that form the underlying force behind making great beats.
From there you’ll discover the vast collection of sounds and kits included with Reason 6. This is where you’ll learn how to mix and match a huge arsenal of explosive percussion loops to help you build killer beat tracks. Physical modeling, time-stretching, editing, and mangling is what Mo plays with next. And let's not forget the all-important Rex files that make Reason 6 the world’s premier beat-making machine!
The final section is all about finalizing. Mo takes you on a routing and mixing journey. This is where you’ll learn to harness the power of Reason’s compressors, EQs reverbs, delays and distortion FX to add that professional final sheen and shimmer to your beat-making madness.
