    Hey there,

    I'm struggling to get a S.A working in reason. I know reason doesn't allow VST's so does that mean i wont be able to get one?


    Also,

    when you fellas are programming your drums into reason, do you chuck the kick in a seperate channel to the snare? and a different channel to your breaks etc..

    hello mate yup Reason isn't VST compatible but u can rewire it with programs such as Cubase that are VST compatible...

    As for your drums defo keep them separate - so separate channel for your kick (even within that if u have 2 kicks keep each in a separate channel as each will need to be processed / eq'd differently), snare, breaks, hihats all separate channels for each :D (if it gets too complicated you can always group your breaks etc later on once ur happy with them)

    so i would recomend either NN-XT or NN-19 for ur one shots on drums (better than Redrum as more routing options, more control) ;)

    Use the NN19 for ur drum hits, Eq> compress > anything else you want on it maybe touch of some reverb

    ok its Spectrum Analyzer pro 4.2-1 (PAS Products) its pretty old but its doin the job for me for the time being, most importantly its standalone so u don't need any vst hosts to use it ;) so perfect for Reason only users lol

    edit: to get this to work on my laptop i had to disable my internal mic
