Reason 4 is an amazing "studio in a box" ... watch a pro show you how it works!
Propellerhead Reason was the first "Studio In A Box" to be come out, and it still makes waves to this day for being one of the must intuitive, easy to use, and FUN audio programs on the market. There's something about being able to create a custom rack and wire it up like your patching together an old analog synth that makes Reason a really rewarding program to use. This software is all about instant gratification, but you still need to know a few tricks to help you get the most out of it.
In this 5 hour tutorial program, macProVideo.com's star trainer Paul Garay demonstrates some incredible Reason 4 tips, tricks, and workflow techniques that will get you making music quickly. You'll learn how to create and patch together custom racks and then use Reason's sequencer to edit and automate MIDI data so your custom racks sing like a concert diva.
Paul also provides a solid overview of Reason 4's main synthesizers, including the NN-XT Advanced Sampler and the amazing new Thor Polysonic Synthesizer. Once you've created your sounds, see how reason's built in DSP effects can be used to enhance your sound. You'll also learn how to use Reason's M-Class Mastering Suite to put the finishing gloss on your songs.

I love the service. I work long hours with down time built in. It's great to be able to watch a few how-to videos to kill the monotony. I'm sure I'll be back to purchase more content. You might consider expanding your archive to include something like what the "...For Dummies" books offer. The more you simplify tasks that the average joe finds complicated the larger your customer base will grow, I think... For example, some people pay big money to learn the basics of film or music production. You could tap some up and coming experts to provide detailed and simplified explanations and or pointers on the tools of the trade. These could probably be marketed at the very least as foundational info which for many would-be what-evers is all they need. Most of what I know about the Reason Software I taught myself. Your videos are filling in the planks, dotting the "I's" and crossing the "T's". Hope this helps and brings in lots of revenue which in turn might convince you to give free access to all of your content... or not.
On the whole this is a very good entry level course on Reason 4. I agree with the comment below that an advanced and/or intermediate course is now long overdue. I should like to see a course on Propellerhead Record too, especially as this is something that integrates seamlessly with Reason 4.
A great introduction to Reason, I would like to see an advanced level course now. Thanks.
Wonderful introduction to Reason 4 that covers the most important parts. I wish there was some more information here and there (e.g. some deeper infos about Thor... but I hope there will be a dedicated training kit just for that synth! ;-) ) But I understand that you cannot cover everything in an overview. So 5 stars.
This video collection give a good solid overview of Reason 4 and all its components. Some of the videos are a bit short, but thats ok. All in all its a good place to start for any beginning reason user
On the whole I think this tutorial is great! Covers the basics of how to use each element of Reason 4. I was already familiar with Reason, so I just wanted to get some extra tips and some help with a few instruments that I wasn't too familiar with, so I got what I was looking for.
i really enjoyed this video. it has certainly opened my eyes to some features that i had overlooked. keep it up!
As an absolute beginner to Reason, this video really helped. Some DVD tutorials are very dry and boring, but I found this easy to listen to and easy to follow step-by-step.
I have several MacProVideo tutorials and they all deliver in quality. This one was particularly helpful as a starter to Reason 4. I would love to see some more advanced tutorials for this software in the future.
Video is well done. I've been using Reason 4 for about two months and then I bought the tutorial. I learned things I would never have learned without watching this tutorial. Great job!
These tutorials have been very helpful. They ahve lead me deeper into the program and made music playing a richer experience. thanks for all your hard work putting these together!
Okay, I am so glad I found your site. This is easily the best tutorial I have seen and now gone through to learn Reason! Great tutor and great video. Loved it!
As always a pleasure watching another macprovideo. I have seen a lot of your videos, and I think in general the standard is very high, so with this tutorial. Good allround presentation of a great app. but would like it to be followed up with a more advanced one, with more drum programming. Thanks for a great work.
good video many features explained well. would have liked some examples of the RPG but all in all a very good tutorial.
A very good and interessting video. It would be better for me to watch it in German, if you make a translation, that would make me happy
Great overview regarding the ins & outs of Reason 4. With in depth looks at all aspects of the program, it's impossible to not come out of this video ready to make some music.
comprehensive set of tutorials covers most aspects and makes alot of sense, supprising omission of arppegiator.Overall absolute bargain!
Fantastic product, I also purchased Core Logic package and I have to say these are by far the BEST tutorials I have ever used on the computer! 5 STARS, A++++++++++++++++++++++!!!!!!!!!!!!
great tutorials - in the future, I plan to purchase all of the logic pro videos!-- one note--I purchased the reason 4 core 101 video production, I notice nothing is mentioned on the RPG-8 arpeggiator?.....
Reason 4 (101) is fantastic..Learning so much more about this incredible program.. you guys are THE BEST!!!
Very good video. Learned more from watching this than I had with various books over the years.
It was informative, It really helped out. Just one thing that bothered me was that I bought the mastering reason when I got the reason adapted with PT. Now that I got reason 4 I bought the core reason 4 tutorial which had alot of the same stuff as the first reason tutorial I bought. No biggy, but....., thanks, Rich
I'm enjoy it ! Thanks.
exellent tutorial...i started on reason from scratch technicly wise...after watching some tutorials...now able to realy do nice things and getting myself more usefull everyday on reason only one minus and not an important one: the person talking sometimes has echo
Hello guys at macprovideo.com ! Firts of all, thanks a lot for your tutorials, I really learned so much with them. They are always very well made and never boring. BUT I was a bit dissapointed by the latest Reason tutorial. I had seen the Reason 3 tutorial and it is basically the same ! Reason 4's new features are mentionned but I didn't learn anything new. I was expecting some great tips about the Thor and Regroove and other stuff but nada ! The tutorial is very good for somebody new to Reason but I've been using Reason for quite some time now and I wanted more. Hopefully in the next one...
This is a great tutorial for every reason user! I consider myself a good user of reason 4 but now that I've seen this Im a total pro ;) I would like to see more musical examples when teaching the sequencers and synthesizers thats why Im giving 4 stars. Definitely Recommended!
A wonderful way to jump start the new Reason software and hit the ground running Thanks Again MPV
I thought this tutorial was very good. It gives a complete overview at a basic level of how to use Reason V4. But I want more ... I would like to see Paul do intermediate level tutorials as well, say on Reason 4 as well as for Pro Tools V7.4, you know more like a "110" level of training. Well done
So far it is great. I am halfway through it and it is extremely helpful and well laid out.
