so what would you guys reccomend off of vstclub? there's a lot of crap to sift through


I really like the sounds you can get out of the Arturia Arp2600. Some of those presets alone are sick but it has a learning curve. With no manual, you pretty much can stick wires to any compatible connection and get something nice out of it. I got that and Waves Mercury but I've only got it for the GTR 3 guitar plugin. That's pretty good too.

I noticed most you guys use musiciansfriend when posting links to gear. They got sum pretty good deals there..just wondering if anyone from canada has ordered from them, if so how was shipping costs and did u get raped in duty fees


I do believe the shipping is free if your purchase is over $99. I think there is a handling charge with certain items though, like consoles and oversized gear in general. If that has to go on freight. If that's the case, then you probably pay by the pound.

P.S. CALL the CALL Center if you're gonna order anything! These assholes will have an item that claims to be "In Stock & Ready To Ship" and then turns out that it's "No Longer Available. This Item Has Been Discontinued". I ordered something online only to have $840 deducted from my account and then get an e-mail saying the order was cancelled due to the item being discontinued. Bullshit. I called them and had them look at the webpage that said it was in stock. They bent over backwards to give me my shit. Call them if you order and tell them to make sure that your shit is there!

I only have so much patience when it comes to a production before I trash it...
I think the hardest part is the ending of your song to do.
Man, what a bitch! For the last two hours, I've been doing several different endings.
I know Jesse said to do what a photographer does and take 200 shots so you can have 2 good ones.
But damn... that's alot of film. Check it:

Can anyone suggest anything?
Different instrument to outro?
Filter envelope in the end?
Fade out? (Yeah, I don't think so).
Should I just let it be or come back a week later?
Keep going? Any advice?

uh, the whole m series of devices in reason is devoted to mastering

and equing boosts/reduces a signal so say you wanna fill some headroom in your mix you can boost a frequency range of one of your synths to fill it, or say one of your sounds are clashing or you like a drum sample but you dont like the hi part of it, you can EQ a certain pitch range out

I'm very new at this and im not 100% sure what you mean by electro type sounds but i find the Malstroem synthesizer in reason to be great, and I only have the soundbanks/patches/refills you get with the program.
You can make some interesting sounds with that and probably come up with something thats somewhat unique seeing as how you can combo different patches and mix it up with the scream 4 distortion thingy and some other stuff. It's also easy to make similar sounds to what you hear from some of the ed banger guys with just the malmstroem sawsounds + distortion. It's fun.

Yeah i can get some pretty cool distortions and there is tons you can do, i was more thinking in the drums and the bass parts for that really murdous bass sounds like in d.i.m is you
and heres a really silly question but how do you guys who use reason make the drums...like i know how to use the drum machine patch but i dont really know how to put that into the song, add parts take away parts....it just loops....
im used to a program called digital preformer and wish i could use that beacuse of the control you had over step recording parts and the differnt layers and such.... but i dont know how to get it to produce sounds other then by using a like a midi controller and old school hardware synth like the type that look like home theater amps....
(i used to be in an electronic music class in school thats how i learned that set up)

and suggestions, i mean i could use any program ya know but i found inspiration in Digital Preformer
Reson is sweet for making sounds but i dont understand it much past that...

I have a microKorg if that helps, its what im using as a midi controller right now

and one last think i love ableton i can easily use that.


any ideas i know that was kind of a rant??

i'm not really sure, but can't you use rewire to use reason as a vst in most sequencers?

Oh yeah that bass sound on "is you" is sooo sick. I'm not sure you can make that with the reason sounds, well i dont know maybe its possible. ive cooked up almost similar stuff by just comboing patches with the malmstroem + scream4dist. But it doesnt sound as "clean", not sure how to explain it.
I remember jesse mentioning in the question thread what syntheziser(s) d.i.m uses, i dont recall what it was though..

About the drums, I havent really made any serious attempts to program drums. I've mostly just opened the redrum and put in a patch(like housekit7 or w/e) and then manually just drawn an electro/houseish drumbeat that i use as background when im trying out sounds and melodies. haha.

i made the "is you" bass sound on thor, thor is great for moog-esque sounds too, its pretty much the only synth i use, i actually find it simpler than the others, not as far as the interface goes but as far as getting a sound im looking for, it just feels really intuitive to me
