Using Reason's Thor Sequencer for Phrase Sequencing The ability to trigger phrases, or melodies from a keyboard, similar to an arpeggiator is being used more and more frequently. Thankfully, with Rack Extensions (like Predator RE, from Rob Papen) it’s easy to do this within Reason. But, what a lot of people don’t realize is that this ability has been in Reason for a long time, through Thor’s sequencer. The best iPad/iPhone music-making apps in the world today Although there will be some who'll try and tell you different, iOS music making apps are not just toys. Many of them are extremely accessible, certainly, but this isn't to their detriment. And, if you want to get serious, you'll also find plenty of apps that boast features that are on a par with those of their desktop cousins. What's more, there's more than one way to approach these apps. If you're looking for something that you can just pass a few minutes with on your commute, it's out there, while other releases can serve as great musical sketchpads that will enable you to start tracks that can later be worked on in your full Mac or PC DAW.
VSTHost While the program started mainly as an aid in understanding and debugging VST plugins, it has evolved into a quite capable program by now which can be really helpful in a keyboard artist's Live setup.

ReWire and Reason - Cycling '74 Wiki Using Max with Reason In the ReWire Essentials tutorials (linked at the bottom), we used Max as both a mixer (hosting application) and "device" (controlled application). These are the two sides of the ReWire connectivity equation, and Max can work equally in both modes. In order to dive into ReWire at a deeper level, let's look at a connection to one of the most-used ReWire packages there is: Propellerheads Reason. In order to have the most fun with our Max/Reason combination, we are going to do some sequencing and audio processing in Max, and use Reason as a synth/sampling and mixing device. What we *won't* do is run the Reason sequencer or use its recording capabilities.

Reprinted from Proceedings, Second Intercollege Computer Music Concerts, Tachikawa, pp. 37-41. May 7, 1997 The best Android music making apps in the world today First the bad news: despite having a huge installed user base, when it comes to music making apps, Android remains very much the poor relation to Apple’s iOS. This isn’t because developers don’t want to release apps for Google’s mobile OS, rather that various problems - notably high audio latency and the fact that there are numerous devices and different versions of Android in circulation - have prevented them from doing so. However, all is not lost. Sonoma Wire Works recently announced that it’s developed a low latency audio solution for Android (though time will tell if device manufacturers will implement this into their products) and more companies seem to be taking a second look at the platform.

The A to Z of computer music: B Computer Music goes below the bonnet in this month's lexical supplement, demystifying yet more digital audio bits and bobs. Balance Adjusting the balance of a stereo signal means changing the amplitude of the left and right signals. It can be used to change the 'position' of an audio signal in the stereo field, though it takes its name from the corrective use of giving each channel equal strength, to 'balance' and centralise the signal.
