    im fairly new to production and am using reason

    a track i am working on i have noticed that a synth i use over the top of a bassline just 3 noted over one beat and ive noticed the synth lead changes pitch over a certain time period and then starts again in a kind of patern but i am wanting to keep it the same pitch all the time. Is there a parameter or function that i have got set that i shouldnt have on the synthesizer that is doing this

    Also i have noticed that the clap i have used in my tune when it kicks in sounds slightly different for the two claps i have in each beat

    these might both be really stupid basic stuff but i dont know it

    could be a few things mate
    ur synth mite have a run function as in it plays its own little tune so try an find the run switch an turn it off
    it may also be that theres some kind of lfo goin on in the synth an its at say 3/8 wich will make it changed out off time with ur tune
    or it could be something different all together.lol

    cheers

    i know its not a run button or owt like that coz it stays in time it just kinda changes pitch slightly as it goes along but thinking about it i might have something to do with LFO i might of put some in when i was trying to get the sound i wanted, when i dont fully understand what everything does yet

    something similar happened to a friend of mine and it was a faulty mod wheel on his keyboard - kept creeping up very slowly - he had strange things happen like that.

    It is happening on the subtractor but i have had it before on other tracks i have worked on where malstrom or thor where used and have never managed to figure it out

    i dont think its this coz it i happening when i have got the track in the sequencer and keyboard asigned to another device

    it could be i have the mod wheel up a bit on the device and thats what is causing it
