REX & FX
Create perfect REX files, and make them sparkle, using Reason's built-in DSP effects!
Hip hop producers have long known that REX files offer the perfect method for flipping beats and phrases to create new, musically interesting cut-ups, but there's a lot more to REX files than just remixing pre-existing sounds. If you haven't begun making your own REX files, the beginning of this program demonstrates why REX files are central to any Reason workflow!
After learning the secrets of making your own REX files, you'll move on to explore all of Reason's Built-in digital signal processing (DSP) effects. More than just a quick tour, this tutorial shows you the how AND why of using DSP effects. For example, you'll learn now dynamic range compression works, and also see when you should apply it to beats, guitar, and other sounds to make them cut cleanly through your mix.
There's also in-depth coverage of something we all love ... VOCODING!! Learn how to use Reason's BV512 Vocoder to make your vocals sing like the robots in a Bonny M song, or vocode beats to create new and interesting rhythmic arrangements.
