Reason Film Scoring Tutorial Series

Postby hennoxlane » Sat May 26, 2012 10:12 am

Hi guys,

First off, not sure if this is the right place to put it.. but I guess it relates to music production techniques, so...
I just wanted to let you know that after doing some pretty basic Reason tutorials, I wanted to share some things I've learned over the last couple of years, regarding writing a filmscore (or just good ways to use symphonic instruments, which could apply to any genre - which is why I think it does fit here as well) using Propellerheads Reason. There is so much potential in even the standard orchestra refill, if you know how to use it. Which is why I want to get some techniques out there with this new series.

Just to get an idea of how these tips can help your tracks, have a listen to a recent theme I did entirely within Reason 6, at my soundcloud:

Check it out, and please leave some notes on how I can improve the series; if there's anything you want to know about, let me know in the comments!

That's quite convincing, I am not an professional engineer, producer etc, but use Reason from time to time and feel instinctly I can acheive more than dance loops with it, and you show that indeed convincing results can be achieved.

Well, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up about episode 4, which has just been uploaded. This one is actually two parts about different instrument techniques. The first part is fairly theoretical, in the second part we put some of it into practice.
