Propellerhead Reason: Malstrom Tweaks

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 22 - 2009

Good morning all! Hope your week is going smooth.. I’m about to work on some crunk tracks this morning, and later some east coast beats.


I’ve been asked many times about the synths I use for dirty south beats. I like a variety of sounds. I use vst plugins mentioned on the site, as well as the Alesis Micron. My absolute favorites are the Subtractor and Malstrom Graintable Synthesizers, both included with Reason.

When you get into them, they are awesome modules. I usually start with a preset and begin tweaking right away. Once I get a sound I like I save it as my own preset.

Here are a couple nice videos which pretty much sums up the knobs I twist on the Malstrom. This should get you making some original sounds in no time….Enjoy!

As soon as I watched the videos I found a GREAT tutorial explaining all about the features of the Malstrom:(This is not a quick I’m still looking at it)
