    Hey guys,

    I'm a bit of a 'tard when it comes to making my own synths, they always seem to sound a bit dry and dull. I wanna try to make some dnb tunes which use continuously evolving synths throughout, inspired by this kinda stuff:

    Any tips on how to make these kind of synths in Reason?

    Cheers!

    Use Thor, take a look at the red mouse patches for Thor- and use automation to keep the parameters changing.

    All I can think of basically for some of what i heard, is to right-click on the unit (NN-19,etc), go down to "create" , and add the UN-16 Unison unit...I usually set the wet/dry at 64 for start and then mess with the detune a bit to see if it helps get the sound ya want..that's kinda basic I know..also can add the 2-band eq as well and mess with the gain as well as the unison unit and see if you can get it to sound loud or low enough to work in the track..
    I've been usin' Reason since Jan.2007, but alot of it is just me tryin' it out, hit and miss stuff. I'm sure you'll find what you're lookin' for, and no doubt someone on here will have a more complex answer to help ya out.

    No worries. As someone told me, don't worry about tryin' to learn everything on Reason, because you can do so much with it, it's almost impossible to learn it all.:D
    have fun with it (y)
