The instruments are smoking! The rack is exploding! Now it’s time to pull it all together and make musical sense of all this Reason mayhem! In this course, Hollin Jones get’s you into the Mixer and exploring the FX, EQ and Automation...
Reason's SSL inspired mixer and track automation are incredibly deep. So where do you start? Interestingly enough, Hollin Jones plugs you right in with a look at the Inserts, Sends and FX! Hollin explains when to use them, how to use them and all the awesome dynamics, modulation, distortion and reverb devices you can patch right in from the mixer itself!
Next, he leaps right into the more esoteric devices like Scream, Pulveriser (we’ve got a whole tutorial series on that) Vocoder, Neptune and so much more. From there, Hollin shows you all the cool sonic transformations you can do with FX automation. Now you’re ready to start learning the rest of the mixer. In this section, Hollin explains the channel strips, the master channel mixer, channel strip automation and exporting.
Hollin pulls together everything you’ve learned in all the previous courses to help you catapult your music to the highest heights! So if your looking to turn up the heat in your Reason productions sit back and learn from the Reason Master: Hollin Jones.

There's a lot of useful info in this course... With this type of learning what you need is to get the general idea of a tool and then experiment with it, and this course has taught me about several useful things I didn't know about (after 2 years or so using Reason), like audio splitting and parallel channels, and the mixer generally.
On the other hand, I think the very fact that it covers so much ground means that sometimes you don't get quite enough - I still don't really 'get' the practicalities of using the EQ display to improve a mix for instance. But you can't have everything... As Hollin says, this is a course worth coming back to for a reminder now and then.

I liked the section because it gave me a full understanding of some very simple but effective sound techniques, as well as, exporting tracks and creating disks

Over all this is a great tutorial. I do wish they would cover just a little bit more how to wire in the rack. for example exporting vocoder to audio track etc. However over all this expanded m y knowledge of reason 7! Thanks guys!!

Good course. Quickly helps acclimate you to the new beast of a mixer in reason. Also shows how to use the automation features.
