In the new 4th edition of Propellerhead Reason there is a handy floating Tools window that pops up on the appropriate hand facet by default. This resources menu incorporates the transpose, quantize, and velocity functionality shortcuts so you can attain them in one click on. Working with these capabilities in our music compositions enable us more artistic choices.
1. Transpose. The transpose functions to increase or reduce the important of the music we are generating. Often we want to try the music in a distinct key or elevate the pitch of a unique aspect devoid of getting the re-report the general performance. The transpose purpose permits us to command the pitch of the music globally or for a selected track.
2. Quantize. Just one of the most crucial strengths of producing tunes with MIDI is the means to quantize, or appropriate our performance errors, whether prompted by pc glitches or our individual faulty functionality. The quantize purpose corrects timing errors by shifting the recorded MIDI facts to a quantize grid. Examples of quantize grids often applied are 1/8th and 1/16th notes. Some musicians prefer to not use quantize when they need to have a human come to feel to the rhythm of the tune, whilst other genres, these types of as dance and hip-hop, demand from customers equipment-like precision that may perhaps be tricky to reach utilizing typical techniques of actively playing.
3. Velocity. Velocity responds to the volume stage of the MIDI info. By managing the velocity value of the MIDI general performance, we can make an instrument sound louder or softer, or just transform down a specific component of the keep track of. When recording MIDI activated drum samples in tunes, drawing in the MIDI details brings about the drum seems to sound lifeless and dull. Using Reason’s “Random” function in the velocity menu, we can introduce random fluctuations in the MIDI knowledge in order to attain a more humanistic truly feel to the rhythm component, if that’s what we are after.
This has been a limited post on the enhancing capabilities in Rationale. I hope it will help you to superior edit and tweak your performances.
