Mo Volans is world class musician, writer and music software professional whose creative contributions include original music for TV, film and recordings. His insightful writing is featured in many of the top music technology and pro audio magazines around the world.
With its array of programmed and drawable waveshapes, combined with its collection of onboard FX, Propellerheads’ Synchronous is a complex and extremely powerful time-based production tool. In this exploratory course, by our very own Mo Volans, you’ll get all the techniques and inside info to make Synchronous the go-to extension in your Reason Rack.
Mo takes you through every section of this wild plugin. He explains the interface, the signal flow, the FX and the cool modulation section that allows you to draw your own custom control shapes right in Synchronous’ Interactive Display. But then Mo goes deeper...
Once you’ve mastered the Synchronous basics, Mo shows off some deep workflow tips. Here you see how to create killer drum loops, deeply layered synth FX and to how mix different tool types to generate complex, synchronized patterns. As a bonus, you learn about using Synchronous as a CV source along with some awesome routing, MIDI mapping and Recycling tips and tricks, too.
So learn Synchronous from the best: the very “Reason-able” Mo Volans.

I had no idea how powerful this rack extension is until I watched this. It almost captures the best parts of the crazy metasynth and brings them straight into reason. Very good course!

Great intro to synchronous! I like how Mo Volans divides the different sections. He also has some pretty cool ideas that inspired creativity. Propellerhead should have this tutorial on the main page of their site! I think I'm not the only one who was a little intimidated when I first saw this new RE. Mo really breaks it down.

Once again, this course is useful and help me understanding faster this new effect and even a few more Reason tricks. Really like it.

This is a good look at learning all the basic uses and how synchronous works. Thought it was good but would have liked a bit more on manipulating sounds. Worth watching if you don't know synchronous at all.
