Rick and Mateo present the latest tutorials in audio technology and gear. In this webisode Stoni explains how to create your own Mastering Module in Reason as well as how to import MIDI files into Logic Studio. We'll also point you to the Must Watch videos from the WinkSound.com Community with tutorials featuring Reason, Ableton and Pro Tools.
Rick: Hey, what's going on? I'm Rick.
Mateo: And I am Mateo.
Rick: And you are watching winksound.com, welcome to the show! Today, we are going to be pointing you to the some of the newest must watch videos from the winksound.com community and studios.
Mateo: Yeah, so you know when you got your mix, you finish your mix your automation your pending everything’s done. You want to start showing it to everybody right.
Mateo: Yeah, but it is still not quite there in that extra amp that’s when mastering comes in so Stoni is going to show us today how to create your own mastery module in Reason 4.0
Rick: And of course this techniques it should be showing you to any DIW that you are using because in mastering you are going to use some of the same basic tools and techniques to get the job done and get the mix sounding right.
Stoni: Whenever I start a session I usually opened up a Reason blank session and I go here to the tool window to where it says effects and I double click on the MClass Mastering Suite Combi. When you double clink on that it will create a mass during effect for your entire session. If you’d like to change patches in different type of effects add the use major record you can go to the folder. Click on the folder and you can browse inside of the MClass Mastering patches we have option to have different settings like a four band compression an acoustic compression and dual band compressions in different types of genres of music. Here we have Hip Hop Combi for your mastering section.
Mateo: So here are some of the most watched videos with the winksound.com community.
Rick: Right, this videos comes straight from users just like you who’ve uploaded their videos into the winksound.com community and these are some that we tell you got to see.
Male: JanJMusic explains how to rewire a Reason into Cubase.
Male: This is a step. Next, it's kind of been missing a lot tutorials that I’ve read online. Everybody just says, open up Cubase and then open up Reason, but this step is kind of missing a lot of tutorials for Cubase.
So, you go up to devices here, the device menu and what you want to do is go down to this option called Reason, makes sense? It brings up this list of Rewire channels. So, when you activate a channel in here, it creates a rewire channel list over here. You can use as many as you want, it handles it pretty well. So, when you activate this channel. This actually corresponds directly to the audio outputs on here. So, if I route a device and reason to three and four, what that’s going to do is– if I have this activated, it's going to route all the audio from reason directly into Cubase. Great feature right there.
Male: Riley and Durrant shows how they set up their APC40 MIDI controller to perform when they’re both in live.
Male: So, you’re just going to click your own and we bring lots of stuff. Okay, over here you’ve got—basically, so when the APC arrives this is your pans and these are pans for different channels. This one is send one and send two, send three except that we didn’t want to use it that way. The way we want to do it was to remap our own stuff. So we’ve even labeled the aux, instead of pan we’ve got all the bass skills, so all the channels one to eight, I’ve got bass kit.
Flip the next one, that’s delay on all the channels. So, I’ll need to do is lock that up and I got a nice little delay on each channel. Other there, I’ve got high—so we have totally remap this to do what we are doing and to kind of help in our DJ
Male: He gives us a quick intro to the MIDI editor window and Pro Tools.
Male: On the left hand side of the MIDI editor we have our tracks window. Here, we can select tracks display in the MIDI editor and also tracks that we wish to work on. To display a track, simply enable it in the track side bar. The track will then be shown on the MIDIgrid. You’ll notice that it has a different color to the other track. This feature can be total of by using this button.
We are able to scroll around the MIDI window, allowing us to see higher and lower octaves of the selective instrument. If we decide we’re once ready to different MIDI track but keep the other tracks in view then we need to move the pencil tool on to that track. Any notes that are hidden behind other tracks will be brought to the front. If we hide the track that we are working on, then the edit function automatically jumps to the next display track.
However, when we show the track, the function does not automatically jumps back. Simply other notes, we can just double click on the grid. Then with a smart tool enabled, we can lengthen the note, shorten the note. We can change the notes pitch and we can change it by holding down the command key.
Stoni: Hi this is Stoni and welcome to the winksound.com in this video we are going to discuss importing MIDI from Reason into Logic.
This simple is going to the file menu click and one import and remember we saved the exporting MIDI Reason on the desktop. So we are going to click on that and we’re going to click open and it is going to open up the tracks automatically feeling logic and that’s called importing MIDI from Reason into Logic.
