Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Super straight forward and easy to follow I've never really listened to Post much, but I looked up the song before having watched this tutorial and really like the style; kinda "Chill Trap" feel. Not overly complicated but sounds really good!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from I love it! I upgrade Reason 2.5 to Reason 11 and that tutorial help to produce a full that I'm proud of. I learn a lot about daw and song structure. The only little details on using sidechain, mixing and mastering were a little to fast for me but I fully understand it was not the purpose of that tutorial but see them as a bonus. I can t wait to do another reason tutorial like this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from The best advanced tutorial on how to produce in Reason First compliments for the teaching technique: awesome, not a second wasted. This is a tutorial about how to do tutorials for all other instructors. Workflow: I learnt so many tips from the tutorial, you have to pay attention since he continuously uses shortcuts and takes advantages of a lot of features of the sequencer to speed up work.. Producing: this is not a basic tutorial and you are suposed to know how the rack, sequencer and each device work. He does not walk you through the devices, but for example shows you how to use Europa to get a certain bass sound he has in his head and describes as "dark but warm". This is most useful. Add that he creates the whole of it from scratch, using only stock devices and samples; no mojo-compressors / magic-eq required, he just shows what one can achieve by merit of his own skills.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very helpful! This series really opened me up to some new ideas and possibilities that I am already implementing in my own work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Best "First Song with Reason" Great course, and a fun song to build, even if it isn't a genre I'd typically work on. Paul's courses have all been top notch. I really appreciate how in this course he stays completely within the box in Reason and doesn't use any rack extensions (REs). If you're just starting to learn Reason and want to build a song, this is probably a better starting point than the "First Song with Reason" course, since that one does use a bunch of REs (but is still great).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from So well done on multiple levels. I can't recommend Paul's courses highly enough. I always learn something new along the way, perfectly paced and so clearly demonstrated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from And Reason Tips, Too! As an introduction to producing this style, I found this very helpful. And even though I mainly use Reason Essentials as a rewire in my DAW, I found that the Reason and the synth programming tips very beneficial for using Reason and other free and 3rd party synths.
