Paul is a master of Propellerhead Reason, with over four years of experience teaching the app. He is also a traveling presenter with Apple, teaching and demoing GarageBand and Logic to audiences across North America.
Over the years, Propellerhead Reason has become one of the hottest audio applications on the market, and many top producers now use Reason for every step of their production process. You can easily make a full record using nothing more than Reason ... it's done every day, in studios all over the world.
Of course, there's a steep learning curve with any program as functional as Reason. You could take time to learn this incredible audio application through the school of hard knocks, or you can let an expert instructor with years of experience show you the way! Let me introduce you to Paul Garay ...
Paul begins this tutorial program by showing you how to configure Reason to work with your computer, audio interface, and MIDI controller, then moves on to explore the interface and set up the controls you'll use while working through the rest of the program.
Next follows a full exploration of Reason's awesome software instruments, including the Redrum drum computer, the Subtractor Analog Synthesizer, the Malstrom, the NN-19 Digital Sampler, and the NN-XT Advanced Sampler. These are the arrows in your sonic quiver, and you'll learn all you need to know to get incredible sounds out of them.
You'll also learn essential tips and tricks for sequencing notes to create an arrangement, before moving on to learn how to apply Reason's DSP effects to mix and master your songs.
If you are using Reason as a tone module, you'll be excited to watch the in-depth exploration of rewiring Reason into today's top audio production software, including Apple Logic and Digidesign Pro Tools.

Your videos are great - very helpful. You guys should partner with Berkleemusic.com. Their courses are great, but your videos are much more thorough than theirs, and would've been a big help - thanks!

As usual, very helpful.

A good overview of Reason 3...and still relevant to reason 4 (although the sequencer is different)... It probably should be called an introduction to Reason rather than mastering as it really doesn't touch on any advanced features... But great it you are new to Reason.

: ) Love & Peace to these Masters of the Universe. REASON is given logic and order, With these quick lessons that drive you as if you are the one with the foot on the pedal and if you have to get up to piss you can pause the lesson to live life and get laid and keep learning in bed during the after glow of rhythm driven, REASON composed, techno-monkey-sex and I am still repeating these awesome lessons to REASONably brain-wash myself in the baptism of wave/pulse forms audibly as well as in vivid color.
I am about to start the voyage to the other side of the looking glass with the delicious temptation of the Lesson 103 REX & FX : ) Nothing Can Stop Me Now!!!!
The downloads were quicker that lightning and easier to install than beauty in the eye. Now that I am the beholder I love the pace I can learn and rule this immaculate concept without any concern of being dock a letter grade for being late to class, granted who is ever late to find love at first site. With these lessons I will be able to end the economic worries of those around me and put them to work rockin' in this free world of free will and the ability to manipulate light and sound.
Thanks MacProVideo ~ I'll be back!!!

Your training tutorial 'Reason 101' is exactly what i needed as a beginner. The tutorial is very easy to follow making the learning process a breeze. Reason is about as complicated as a software can get and it was amazing how simple your tutorial makes the whole thing look and feel. The support team at macProVideo is also very helpful, customer satisfaction, 5 stars!

The audio quality of the video is good, with a very clear and suitable pace for me, an Asian.
The rooms of improvement:
if the reason files demonstrated in the video can be downloaded, it would be a better help. Then I can follow the actions of the video to practice. I would very much appreciate if MacProvide.com can add these files in the packing of purchasing these videos.
Overall I enjoy learning through the video.

For me it was very easy to follow along and understand. The tone of Paul's voice and the way he explains what he is doing, why he is doing it and what the result will sound like like is excellent. It's amazing what you can pick up in just a minute or two! I look forward to other reviews of products that I use as well.

Concise, informative, clean, good voice work, this is only my second tutorial from mac pro and i have found them to be highly useful. Beats youtube , which is a good source but is never as professional or orderly relavent. The only problem i found in this one is when the menu screen comes on before a chapter plays, the duration of that certain lesson is always at 0:00 and its jumbled up over the description of the content of that lesson. Besides that my reason tutorial has been impeccable. Thank you.

I thought it was a GREAT Tutorial.
Garay has a real gift for making things real.
My only one thing I would have like to see is how it works with Garageband. That is my primary program and I wanted more information on the two programs together

A good overview off all the basics necessary to work within Reason.
