Of all the instruments and FX in Reason - and Record - no other device is as simple, powerful, and as mysterious as the Combinator.
In this tutorial, G.W. Childs, one of the original Combinator sound designers for Reason, gives you step by step examples detailing the ‘ins and outs’ of the Combinator. He also shows you how to create powerful new Combinators using hot new instruments like Kong.
You get in-depth examples of how to design your own elaborate and powerful instruments by combining instruments and FX together. Additionally, you learn how to create your own FX presets by combining loads of different FX devices. You even get cool examples on how to remix your own tracks using the Combinator!
This course also includes an exclusive Refill collection designed by G.W. exclusively for this course. You can use its presets to follow along, or just use the performance Combinators, drum Combinators, and FX Combinators for your own musical creations.
Think of this tutorial as a Combinator cookbook, giving you examples on how to build beastly audio pies that are not only savory, but killer!
This course, originally created in an earlier version of Reason, is forward-compatible with the most recent version.

What a Great tutorial! Not only for a musician but for film editors as well. Great learning tools in this tutorial for scoring film and adding realistic and ambient sound FX. Highly Recommended!

Great introduction to synthesizer building within the combinator! This definitely helped me better my usage of the combinator as well as new possibilities for sounds with the synthesizer instruments!
