Welcome back for the fifth episode of our Knowledge Drop series, Combining Combinators. The focus of today’s drop: using Reason’s flexible modular routing to trigger multiple combinator devices from a single master keyboard or MIDI controller.
The Combinator in Propellerheads’ Reason allows users to combine any number of devices into a single container that is easily saved and recalled. Inspired by the big keyboard workstations that came 15 years earlier, The Combinator allows you to make the big, complex, and “expensive” sounds that were common only in the hardware world.
In today’s tutorial, we will leverage Reason’s modular routing to combine and control multiple Combinators at once.
Today’s Content Download
For you, we have created several Reason project files containing templates for different Combinator Combination scenarios wired up and ready to go. Also included in the download are several Combinator patches that will require additional routing to work in your own project.
The project files were created with Reason 8, but the Combinator patches are compatible with Reason 4 and higher. The download contains:
- Five Reason project files, containing preconfigured Combinator Combinations.
- Five Combinator patches, which will work in your own project when properly cabled.
