I just love the kind of electronic music that people create with Propellerhead's Reason. I just acquired the software but I find it very difficult to use (I'm not very experienced in producing music) and would love some easy step-by-step walkthroughs to ease the learning curve a bit. Anyone got fish?
The problem is diggin' your teeth on the software. Currently I am only aware of 2 websites that provide tutorials that take advantage of Reason's most awesome features:
http://www.reason101.net/ Free tutorials, most of them are rather good and explore things that are usually forgoten by most users - like Using Thor as a Filter. Using external audio into thor for FM synthesis. Creating a Grain Synth using NXTT. Vocoding RedRum loops and other awesome things.
http://www.nucleus-soundlab.com/reason-wizardry-video-tutorials.html There's a free tutorial about expanding the synthesis capabilites of THOR, showing that it's possible to make a Fm Synth, a Fm Modulator Synth, AM Synth (doesn't work very well), PW Synth and basically shows a new world around it.
BTW: I STRONGLY RECOMMEND watching the demo of reason wizardry, It's superb. And it's the only one that I did watch, I'm still wondering if I should pay all that money for it.
I'll make this community wiki, so everybody can contribute.
A good start:
The website boyinaband.com has some very well explained tutorials to get you started :) It's funny too!
