So the first FM tutorial was very cool, but with more modern reason devices it feels out dated, I do realize that this was posted a while ago but I'm jut glad there are more advanced tutorials for reason as it is. Hopefully you guys can come up with some more reason tutorials I have been using Blamsoft's Expanse Hyperwave synthesizer to get some crazy wavetable/Fm basses, if I was able to get my screen/audio recorded Id do it myself but the audio routing is a hassle and a half!
