Recording with Real Instruments in Reason 7
This movie provides an introduction of the course and the track that is made throughout it, explaining the content of each lesson and the subjects that are covered.
This movie gives an explanation of the Template Session Jared likes to work with as the basis for his songs, showing how it was created by adding a whole host of different Creative and Studio FX to use as inserts and on return tracks on the mixer.
In this module, Jared works with Octo Rex, initially by loading a selection of different drum loops into it, and then by editing and resequencing the loops to make original beats that form the rhythmic foundations of the track.
This lesson shows how Jared jams with the beats to record in guitar and pad parts that create the heart and soul of the song. There is also an explanation of the chords used throughout and how the song develops harmonically.
Jared then plays in the bassline for each section of the track, working with the harmony and beats, in order to solidify the main groove.
In this module, Jared programs additional beats using Kong, to fill out and fatten up the drums in the track.
This module shows how totally unique brass parts can be created by importing audio loops, then slicing, stretching and transposing them to work with the song.
In this module, Jared plays in further melodic accompaniment in the form of a glockenspiel part, to add some extra textures and character to different sections of the track. FX sounds are then applied to help with the transitions, which are similarly done using Reason's NN-XT Sampler.
In this lesson, Jared records in extra guitar parts over the track, either to double sounds like the bass, or to add virtuosic, improvised phrases.
In this final lesson, Jared demonstrates how to readjust levels, equalisation and the overall mix to achieve the optimum sound. Other effects processing is also carried out, including making use of Reason 7's new Parallel Channel feature.
