    you sir just learnd me how to beef up bass soudn with the combi! i never figured out how it workd before seeign your vid! ur awesome soory for the spelling haha

  2. PrimeLoops says:

    yes, reason has the same type of piano roll as in fl studio, you just have to find it in the sequencer window when you have the subtractor selected. Best of luck and happy beat making!

  3. tewepo says:

    how can i make a sequence with subtractor? like the piano roll in fl studio.

  4. echoes626 says:

    you need to get a firewire/usb midi interface, and midi cables. also your synth needs to be midi compatible.

  5. gianmarcoschiano says:

    Que onda! I follow you and take some tips from you to make my beats in Reason 4, you’re great dude, i’m from México. I hope that you can check my songs and give me some feedbacks, it’s like electronic dubstep blah blah blah =)

    It will be an honor.

    so this is what kermit the frog is doing with himself these days!

  7. rook1nubZ says:

    Really good tut, enjoyed and learned a lot. Thank you.

  8. kongotech2 says:

    Yeah thanks a lot! :)

  9. PrimeLoops says:

    You need to make sure that the subtractor is connected to the mixer (which it should do automatically), you can check this by pressing tab and there should be a red cable running from the audio output of the subtractor to one of the channels in the mixing desk. Then, if you don’t have a midi keyboard, you will need to draw in some midi notes into the sequencer and hit play before you can hear any sound. Hope this helps!

  10. kongotech2 says:

    at 0:51 you say, here is the base sound… Well how do you activate the sound?

  11. lazicsale says:

    How can I connect my synthesizer to the computer? which cable i need for that? where are the settings for that? CAN YOU PLEASE PLEASE MAKE TUTORIAL FOR THAT

  12. alexkid1 says:

    This is probably a dumb question, but how do you test your sounds on the fly like that without having a sequence on the so called “piano roll”?

  13. smash4686 says:

    I don’t get why it wouldn’t just be easier to create the reverb and amp under a send effect and use one subtractor. I don’t use Reason anymore but as far as I remember creating send effects wasn’t hard.

  14. freddyreeks says:

    Unless you wanted to tweak your synth settings on one device differently from the other no? Also just to check, was the combinator was routed stright to the mixer?

  15. DoraggPvp says:

    Just so you know, I remember routing the devices 10 seconds before you had to recap what we did.

    Anyways, thanks for the tutorial and I got that refill and I’m checking out all the goodies. Prime Loops = A++

  16. Pizuar says:

    I thought exactly the same :)

  17. TommyNegeal says:

    Couldn’t you do this very simply with the high and low pass filters on most reverbs and then change the blend with the dry/wet knob… ? Seems overly complex to duplicate the actual synth just to add some reverb to it…

  18. 4ndrww says:

    one thing i noticed for anyone who cares, is the output from the merger got connected to the wrong inputs on the combinator, he incorrectly used the inputs that are designated for use with external devices rather than for devices contained within a rack.
    tho in this case it really made no difference

    i wouldnt have thought it would allow sound through or save this routing with the combi patch
    but after doing a test.. it apparently does!
    sry for the nitpick

    good tutorial :)

  19. 4ndrww says:

    @LAU99991 yeh, you can us either an audio splitter or a mixer. in this case there’s no real advantage to using the mixer, other than the cables autoroute if you create the devices in the right order.

  20. themadinfluence says:

    better learn then….

  21. mortenrobinson says:

    It would be exactly the same. However i don’t know which of the 2 virtual devices would consume more cpu. However i’d probably just do the same as dust4angel and use one spider and one synth and just routing one channel from spider splitter-outputs back to one of the merger-inputs and from a second splitter-output through reverb, eq and scream and the back into a second merger-input.

  22. mortenrobinson says:

    Offcourse silly :P Just route the output from your nnxt to the spider instead. However, depending on what particular sound you’re dealing with, you may feel that it is other parts of the frequency-spectrum that needs a boost, but you’ll have to use your own ears for that part. The procedure is the same, use equalizerto duck down the frequencies you don’t want boosted, run it through reverb and use scream to add a boost on frequencies that need it. Don’t boost where you ducked ;)

  23. Thacizzlec3 says:

    Does This example work while using NNXT as your Module???

  24. LAU99991 says:

    Would i get the same effect if i combined the two subtractors in a 6:2 mixer instead of in a merger/splitter? Or am i missing something here??
