What do you get when you put gates, filters, patterns and FX into a single device? You get a plugin with major teeth that’ll bite right through your mixes! That’s because Alligator is about making any track into a beat track. Got a pad? Make it percussive! It’s about chopping. It’s about sonic slicing and dicing!
In this tutorial, our own in-house Alligator wrestler G.W. Childs takes you through every aspect of this reptilian rack device from its 3-way split head to its processor-packed tail. Along the way you’ll see how all of Alligator’s sections work together to turn any audio input into the most innovative, chopped-up, filtered, beat-driven, panned and processed track anywhere this side of the sonic swamp!
So join G.W. and see how you whip up some dangerous beats with Reason’s cool new reptilian rack effect, Alligator. Just watch out for all those teeth!

Great job on this tutorial, GW! Love the pacing, content, and your enthusiasm about the subject.

When the alligator is on, the sound is too much processed, maybe it's done on purpose to show the full effect, but I don't like the result. However, good to learn the "On" switch and volume at the bottom right to get sound.
