How to Use Maschine with Logic Pro

Posted by Ms.Tris On August - 15 - 2012

Great Morning Producers! What’s happening with the music? I am seriously rolling as I normally do this time of the year..just celebrated another birthday(8/7) and I’m feeling quite grateful for everything going on with life…I took a little vacation to visit family,and had a wonderful time on the Eastern Shore. I know it’s about to get super busy, so quality time with my peeps was important….

I am not a Logic user, but this workflow is very decent. I do something similar inside Reaper. I know tons of you are using Logic Pro so I figured I’d start adding some news for the software. Again it’s always a good idea to stay current with various software then translate the techniques to your DAW of choice.

How To Do Automation In Studio One

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 11 - 2012


Wonderful day to ya! Having some fun this morning mixing a few tracks and trying out a few new tricks. I am about to try pitch automation. I recently did a huge set up with all my favorite software. I had everything going through Fl Studio 10. This worked fairly well and I am still testing a few things. What I’ve done is Rewired Fl Studio, Reason, and Reaper; sequencing using Maschine. Everyone wanted to know why would I do all that..lol. Well, each has something I love, and of course I like trying new things. I am also finding out which set up will make it easiest if I need to use either program. Here’s what I mean: Let’s say I am using Fl Studio but would like to throw in sounds from Reason, and record a hook. This for me is a hassle doing it all in Fl, so I need to use Reaper or Studio One. Or how about Ni Maschine with Fl Studio’s mixer and Reason NNXT..again not convenient inside Fl Studio. So I am making a template where I can load one program and use every single production element I own if I’d like to.

Studio One 2 has been working very well with everything. There’s not much of a learning curve and so far it’s easiest for me to get a decent mix. Presonus has made this DAW basically click and go. Another cool thing is you can do several automated steps on one track without having tons of automation lanes open. Here’s a video which explains Studio One Automation. Remember a lot of this can be done in other the other DAWS. It’s just that I am using Studio One today. I will post about automation in Fl Studio in the near future.

Really easy huh?…let me know if you are using Studio One, as I get more used to it I may need some tips :)..

How To Mix Inside Fl Studio

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 28 - 2012

Hey Hey my great producers! It’s going to be extremely hot over the next few days. Please be sure to drink plenty water and take the heat seriously. It looks like we’ll have record breaking heat by Saturday…..


I’ve been rolling out a few bangers lately using FL Studio 10. I must say my mix is getting a lot better. Once you begin to understand the frequencies, monitoring, and how to use effects it gets easier. I am still seeking a wonderful mix straight from my production software. I think this helps a lot when you need to work fast but efficiently. I’ve come up with a few techniques which are working for me. I found a video which is close to what I do and is an easy way to start for those new to mixing ” inside the box” using FL Studio.

Mixing and Mastering Preperation Basic Tips for using FL Studio 10


Tyler Clark has a nice YouTube channel featuring his production and tutorials.Stop by and check out more when you have time.

Remember many techniques you see here can easily be transferred to any DAW or Production program like Reason. Also nothing is set in stone and you may come up with your own way to do the exact same thing. If you are doing tutorials please share a link and I will help you promote it.

How To Rewire Fl Studio and Reason

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 15 - 2012


Great Friday to you! It’s been a full week for me. I managed to end math class and make a few beats. I used Fl Studio all week, and I wanted to try some sound design with Reason’s Malstrom synth. I had the rewire going smoothly, but was only using one Reason track at a time. Today I’d like to set up a template with multiple outs from Reason to Fl Studio. I’ve mentioned How To Rewire Reason To Various DAWS before.The first video showing how to Rewire Fl Studio and Reason isn’t visually clear. Here is another video that is precisely done for Fl Studio and will help take things a step further. I am sure watching both will get the ball rolling for me this morning…

How To Put Kong Pads On Separate Tracks

Posted by Ms.Tris On May - 31 - 2012

Hey, Hey, Hey!! How are you enjoying the wonderful weather…it’s been rainy here, but between the rain is beautiful sunny sun :)….

I’m working on some dubstep tracks today. I know for what I’d like to do, Maschine and Reason is the fastest route this morning. There is a movement in music with house, club, pop, and dubstep. I’ll be posting a little more about them collaboratively. I try to be a well rounded producer, and of course I want to share the new new for those venturing in other directions outside Hip Hop.

It seems whenever I start software I haven’t used in a while, I wind up learning something new about it. I’ll spend about 30 minutes before I start the beat. This keeps me up to date and fresh on the program. Practice also makes new updates and changes less of a challenge.

For this mornings practice I loaded up Kong. It’s been a while since I used Reason’s Kong , and I’ll need to add effects to the individual drum pads. First I’d like to place each pad on it’s own mixer channel. Once this is set up, I can route effects to them from the rear Reason Panel. I found a video explaining, and it is definitely a wonderful find. The producer that uploaded the gem is signed to Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def Label. His name is Bigg Vic and it seems he got his deal from his beat making videos. Be sure to stop by and subscribe, he’s got a lot of valuable info on his channel:

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…

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