https://youtu.be/QxetPg_B16o Started by loading up a pair of Rozeta Particle AUs into Audiobus 3 to feed an advertised MIDI session on my PC which was created by using rtpMIDI. I fed that into Reason where I loaded up Europa, messed with a preset and adding some effects. During this, I also removed one of the Particles and put a Bassline AU in parallel with it and then filtered that using a Scalar. I enjoyed some of the bass sounds here. Enjoy!

In addition to Wavetable, I’m using the Echo device and two Max4Live devices – K-Devices EXT & LFO
https://youtu.be/Gt2kNw6EHEY I’ve been re-learning Reason – specifically how to use the MIDI Editor and/or generate some random music and capture at least the audio – for the past few days, even though I know I can just load it up as a VST now into Ableton Live. Today I decided to either use an outboard sequencer (Arturia Beatstep) or another program and I settled on using VCV Rack into LoopMIDI into Reason, capturing audio with the MRecorder VST. Here are the results.
Bonus – includes me overwriting the WAV output from the 25 minutes prior to starting the video!

https://youtu.be/PcWQj_B3qxM After wrestling to get Reason to do what I wanted for earlier part of the day…I decided to sit outside in the unseasonably cold May air and run through various permutations of scales, LFOs, wavetables and envelopes with these two apps.
https://youtu.be/AS1f-DcQbqs So what I aimed to do here was just play around on the piano, recording the midi and audio, stop when I want to talk about something I did and then move on with the “improv.” Not slick at all – in fact I was a bit nervous – but this is where I am today.
https://youtu.be/x5u88q-TTS4 Picking up on yesterday’s failed experiment and following up with a few more yesterday, I now understand a bit better how to use the playlist and automations. I do a bit more talking than usual on this one because now I am a bit more comfortable.
I’m using a 3xOsc kick and I spend time automating the oscillators as well as then adding delays and distortions and automating them and spending time exploring the automation sequencing and the randomization there and the possibilities of overlaying/skewing different automations. I also mess with the LFO automations. Near the end, I take a side trip into Edison, which is a cool concept to this Ableton Live user – a VST that captures and records – though I don’t record the MIDI, I did learn that yesterday with a short piano improv.
https://youtu.be/lPz-P86DeBA Another experiment, this time using Arturia Beatstep connected via MIDI to an iPad mini which is passing through a Rozeta scaler into an edited saw preset (with a slower attack, so sort of a pad) which then goes into GliderVerb (later added FAC Bandit to distort) and recorder into AudioShare for upload into Dropbox.
Windy voiceover with birds, lawnmowers and other sounds – included at no additional charge. Still not sure what mic I was using but I was too far away. Voice gets overwhelmed by the wind and music but does cut through during the quiet spots. Take it or leave it.
