The Fast Guide to Propellerhead Reason is the book Reason users have been waiting for to help them get the very best from Propellerhead's amazing electronic music studio software.This in-depth guide, now in its second edition, takes you through every separate Reason device, including the analog-style Subtractor synth, the amazing Malstr m Graintable synth, the two easy-to-use sample players, the funky Dr. Rex Loop Player, the vintage-style Redrum drum computer, and the quick-and-simple sequencer. In addition, all the devices and changes introduced with the v2.5 update are covered, including the studio-quality RV7000 stereo reverb, the sophisticated and versatile BV512 vocoder, and the down-and-dirty Scream 4 distortion unit.Every control and function is explained in the kind of language you can understand, with invaluable insights as to practical and off-the-wall uses of device facilities along the way. Frequent walk-throughs of both standard and more exotic techniques are introduced at the points where you will find them most useful, and step-by-step programming tutorials help you increase your hands-on skills with Reason, as well as creating unusual and indispensable effects that will speed the creation of your music and enhance its appeal. The book is also packed with handy hints and tips. This is not a retread of the manual!

    Very in-depth Reason manual, but only goes up to Reason 2, doesn't cover Scream, etc. Nice if an updated version was produced, nevertheless plenty here to be getting on with in the mean time!Gear used; Pentium 4 1300Mhz,512mb ram, 4-octave midi keyboard.

    Step by step guide that takes you through everything. It not only tells you 'what' to do, but 'why' you do it, which gives a better understanding and means it's also easier to remember what you learn. If you can't learn reason inside out from this book, you never will.....!

    An excellent guide. Well worth waiting for as it now covers both Reason versions (1 and 2). The layout is very clear and easy to follow with loads of illustrations showing actual screen shots. No wonder it took so long to produce.
