Reason 6 Mixing Master Class

Posted by Ms.Tris On May - 3 - 2012

What’s happening with you? I am sitting here trying to get my day started…just heard my boy T_Sizzle #55 Terrell Suggs may be out for the season BOOOO..You all know I love my Ravens football…. wishing T Sizzle a speedy recovery for sure..

I think Reason 6 is one of the best releases from Propellerhead. There are so many options for music production and audio recording. I just wish I could use vst instruments inside the sequencer. This video really breaks down mixing techniques in Reason 6. It’s a full master class, over an hour. Go grab some food and drink…sit back and enjoy…

Reason 6 Mixing Masterclass with Gary Bromham

Always remember if you don’t have Reason 6, this is still worthy of watching. The techniques can be used for any mix project.

Fl Studio Mixing Advice

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 24 - 2012

What’s goodie! 🙂 …You all read the title?..Told ya Fl Studio will always be in my line-up. I think out of all the tools I use, Fl Studio with Maschine and Reason rewired is really my favorite for beat making. Next up is my hardware (Mpc etc). I made a hot track this week using Fl Studio 10. I think I may even keep this one for myself..(yes I am rapping again!! if you need a hot 16 or a hook let me know). I really think after learning more about mixing, things are coming along straight from the program. Some people are using Fl Studio for everything including vocals. Next month when I have a lighter schedule, I’m going to play around with recording audio into Fl Studio.

Image-line has really been doing things with tutorials lately. I was trying to find a way to delete all patterns at once this morning so I could make a template. I stumbled on a video section section I had no idea Image-line posted:
Mixing Advice!!! Woo hoo..enjoy!

Fl Studio Mixing and Production Techniques

It’s gonna be so hard to pull away from music today…I have a quiz later so I have to hit the books..Oh and if you know how to delete patterns at once,please drop a comment 🙂

It’s Thursday, almost through another week. I was looking online for a bit of music theory. I’m returning to my guitar lessons. I just got my guitar back after lending it for a few studio sessions. I made a club track which I used a guitar vst. I knew it would sound better with live guitar so I had to find an advanced guitarist. It’s a shame ..I wanted to play the part on my guitar so bad :(… but hey, it’s always great to collab and learn from those who already know what you don’t…

This site has been around for a long time. Today was my first time checking out the macProVideoDotCom Youtube channel. Honestly this has to be my best find in 2012. Music tutorials galore, and even more important for my college courses..Web Design help!

Here is one of the Music Theory videos:

How about Reason 6 help?:

If you can’t find something you need here then I’d be shocked. They offer free very short tutorials. There are very extensive tutorials on the official site. You can even see previews before you even join the site:

Melodyne Preview

Maschine Master Class Preview

The cost for full access to all tutorials is 199.00 per year or 25.00 per month. Although the site is geared for Mac users, there is a lot for those who use PC. I know there is enough information for me to join for at least one year. I am already in class mode, so this is perfect timing. I will be helping promote and using the site often. Knowledge is Power!!(I know so cliche, but true)

Check out the official site, this may be something which will help you grow in several areas. I could barely take it all in! Here is a list of categories offered:

A/V Fundamentals, Ableton, Live, Acrobat, After Effects, Aperture, Apple Color, appOmator, Audio Plug-Ins Compressor ,Cubase, Dreamweaver, DVD Studio Pro ,Edius Pro, Encore, DVDFinal Cut Pro ,Flash, Game Audio, GarageBand ,Hot Products, iBooks Author, iDVD, Illustrator, iMovie, InDesign, iPhoto, iWeb, iWork, iZotope, Lightroom, Logic Pro & Express, Mac OS X, MainStage, Media Composer, Media Encoder, Melodyne, Microsoft Office, MIDI, Motion, Music Theory, N.E.D. & N.E.D.i, Native Instruments, Photoshop, Premiere, Pro Tools, Reason, Redmatica Keymap, Sibelius, Soundbooth, Soundtrack Pro, Spectrasonics, Studio & Recording Techniques Superior Drummer, WaveLab, Web Design

Scott Storch Back At It

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 3 - 2012

What’s Goodie?!! It’s spring yezzzz, I love this time of the year. I’ve been working hard on some of those projects I told you about. I’ll be posting promos on artist Stevie Krizz, and Shanz Holmes very soon. I even dusted the mic off and spit a few hot sixteens. We may be onto something, because everyone is giving good reviews about the new music. School is cool, and I’m also working hard in my design courses. ….I have to meet up with engineer Mark Carey @StreetLegal Studios today. We are mixing the Gospel Track “Touch The Moon” by Karen Domino( Fats Domino’s daughter) White. The track has a whopping 99 vocal tracks! Yes I am really learning some new mixing tricks with this one for sure.

Here’s a little early inspiration for ya. I was wondering about Scott Storch. You hear so much in the news, I’m happy to see he’s getting back to the music.

Scott Storch Instrumentals and Interview…Some of my favorite beats from him here….enjoy!( some of these had me dancing this
