Reason delivers all kinds of powerful tools to mix and master your music. Learn the Mo Volans mix/master pro workflow and see how you can make your tracks explode with energy – all within the awesome Reason 7.
Mo Volans is world class musician, writer and music software professional whose creative contributions include original music for TV, film and recordings. His insightful writing is featured in many of the top music technology and pro audio magazines around the world.
This course is all about workflow – and how a good mix and mastering job depends upon really good track preparation. That's why in the first section of this 36-tutorial course you see how Mo gets himself organized.
Sloppy beginnings make for messy results, and that's why you first learn how to clean up your MIDI and audio to ensure that everything is totally tight – before you put on that final polish. This section also explores grouping related tracks to help organize, control and balance out instrumental sections.
In the section on MIDI, samples and effects processing, Mo explores perfecting lead, pad and other essential parts. Here is where you start to use some cool Rack Extensions to enhance the sonic musicality of your mix.
The final collection of tutorials is all about mastering. Here is where you conquer the all important mastering chain, sample rates and bit depth. But that's just the science. Mo also takes you on a listening adventure as he applies EQ, compression, reverb and other processing that takes your hard-earned mix and transforms it into an intensely loud and insanely professional sounding track.

have moved from a Korg D3200 to Reason 7 in mid 2014. These tutorials helped me understand more in five minutes than i did reading the manual. I had a basic understanding of how reason worked, but this helped me organise things and showed me a few tricks along the way. awesome.
will be back for more!

Great stuff. A little too much repeatings at the beginning and end of chapters. And a little too general work through. A advanced class should go more deeply into things. And with chapters longer than 6 minutes, this would be posible. But all in all, great class. Cheers
