    Reason 4.0 Mixing/"Mastering"(Template)

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Posted a few of these up in random threads, just took the time to fully tweak a template for really good industry standard mixes straight out of Reason.

    The first thing I want you to know is each song is completely different and needs to be approached differently, this template will help people with problems achieving quality get a good start, I'm not promising miracles.

    This kit is made to bring out the best overall sound to your mixes, it will not only make them "loud", but also make kicks hit harder, basslines smoother, highs more noticeable, and your stereo more widespread. It also includes aux ports for Reverb and Chorus so that you can add the effects to instruments by simply turning up Aux 1 & 2 on the mixer or ReDrum Drum Machine.

    Because of the extreme threshold on the limiter setting, you'll have to turn instruments down rather than up to get optimal sound out of them. This is a good thing, that's actually more headroom you're adding. Turn instrument's volume down in the mixer until they don't sound oversaturated and they will sit good in your final mix.

    You should very rarely(if ever)have to add further EQ or compression to instruments while using this template, trust me, it will sound professional without all the extra tweaks.

    This will make good listenable tracks for displaying your beats on websites, beat CDs, personal use, ect., but if you are giving your beats to a professional, simply bypass the "Mastering Suite" and you should have an overall good to go mix.

    Have fun, and you can always save the "Mastering Suite" Combinator patch(cmb)to slap onto already finished beats, just note that you'll probably end up turning stuff down and taking off EQ and compression.

    Take care, have fun producing, peace!

    Are you using Reason 4.0?

    If not, try loading the combinator patch into the "mastering suite" that appears in Reason's default rack when you first open it.

    good looks. I'm going to try and A/B it to my newest Reason tracks to test my ears. Hopefully this will help me solve my biggest issue with Reason....
