How often do you get to watch a Master at work? In this tutorial you're in the virtual studio with Dubstep producer Hollin Jones where you'll witness the creation of an electronic dance masterpiece using Reason 6. This adventure begins with Hollin exploring ideas as he looks for inspiration from the tempo and the beats. Watch as he experiments with different loops and patterns and builds the rhythmic foundation of his Dubstep composition.
From there he moves on to the melodic part of the production process. This is where you'll learn all about bass sequencing including Hollin's take on creating the infamous Wobble Bass sound. Next he'll add some piano, do some automation editing, and create some guitar tracks enhanced with FX. The section that follows is all about adding those all-important sonic flourishes that become the glue holding the composition together.
This whole adventure comes to a musical climax as you sit right next to Hollin while he mixes and masters his newly-born Dubstep track. So if you want to learn all about Dubstep and get an education in track production in the process, this tutorial will get you there!

I thought this course was for people who have had a lot of Reason experience but it was not, so it was somewhat tedious, but it would of been FANTASTIC had I been new to the world of Reason.

This tutorial felt a bit rushed and incomplete. For example, I think Hollon forgot to monitor the audio out of the program for video #37. I wish the track was a little more "fleshed out". All in all, some good techniques used here.

Some great parts in this tutorial, Hollin is a great instructor. I do feel that it focused too much on the features of reason (which are explained in depth in other earlier tutorials) and not enough on the design and creative process of EQ'ing and Mixing. Also one of the latter parts does not have audio, clearly Hollin can hear it but it is not present in the video. Cheers 4*
