Transpositioned Disposition

By Tweaklab on June 26, 2016 2:04 pm

140BPM Dubstep track written in a touch over an hour using some Reason stock synths and a dubstep sample pack, this is more an experiment with transposing samples and utilizing the razor tool within REASON more than anything!

Many sample packs seem to give you pre-rendered .WAVs to work with unless you use NI MASSIVE and it seems I've just figured out how to do that effectively within REASON, finally.

All the bass clips are just that, I had about 15 track lanes just for these snippets I'd cut up and edited and transposed which was probably easier than writing stuff and automating LFOs once I got used to the idea lol

In n00b fashion I used to only know how to load up a .wav as a "single sample" on a synth, the issue, rather than transposing the sound it would pitch it, so you'd soon lose sample length etc.

The bass-lines in this track were achieved by just dragging the original WAV in, slicing it up where needed and then manually transposing each clip to get the right note without losing tone or length!

Bonus track! Happy 20th anniversary QUAKE!

I have Reason but I definitely use it on below n00b fashion.  What is the Razor tool?!?!?!

the WUBS are ridiculous!  I especially love the "low bit voice" kind of sound.  Great work!

Thanks man!

It's this little guy here that I never noticed until watching a Celldweller tutorial on recording and editing guitar! (he doesn't even use Reason but it just made it click in my head what the tool must be for in Reason)

You just drag a sample into the sequencer in Reason, it'll load up the waveform and you can position it etc, then using this tool you can cut the sample into separate samples (wherever you click it!) then move them about etc, it's an awesome way to cut out the static in-between guitar strums too by razor cutting the start and finish of the empty bits then just deleting that whole chunk of the clip.

I also found out a little while ago that holding down CTRL while you stretch the start or finish of the waveform with the mouse will timestretch it, REALLY handy for remixing and getting your guitar recordings to snap in place easier if you are like me and couldn't keep in time.

But check this out, love this guy.

Guarantee he will inspire you one way or the other big_smile
