I'd heard he'd done this: very interesting. Oddly enough, I did not know he was in another band. I just thought he'd been doing studio stuff all along. Hmmm ... That's quite an article, though, and gives some food for thought regarding vintage gear and software.

And an SH-201? Huh!

that is an interesting article. i've used reason for years and he's right about it sounding a little thin. i've yet to try 3.0 and i hear (from their propaganda) that those issues have been addressed.

on my myspace, 2 of the tracks are 100% reason and 2 are 100% real analog recorded in cuebase. i wonder if people could pick which is which? - this seems like a shameless plug but i really just thought of it now. honest!

Nice stuff, Mark! And the Jupiter 4 is just the icing on the cake.

Have you tried Audio Pervert's drum samples? Yum!

No, unfortunately, they are not free. However, they're quite good and they're pretty reasonable. PM me for details. You can find the page here: http://www.audiopervert.com/ I use them and a few others in Tuna Fish, which makes for pretty easy-to-use drum machine/sequencer.

I'm willing to bet he knows how to program better sounds with Reason than you do with your gear. Just a hunch.

Well, he likes it, so there you go. And yes, he was quite good with Japan, though I have no idea what his new stuff sounds like.

Its not the only important artist using reason.

As in FL studio, I couldn't be more happy with FL, and as a Mike Oldfield fan, I couldn't believe when I read that Mike is using FL!

To each his own, you know? I've heard some pretty damn good stuff made with only an old organ and the most basic of mono synths. You can guess what that was.

And you probably hate it. :twisted:

He also uses a V-Synth, or at least that's what the videos of him on the Roland website say.

I like to think I still am. After 25 years I felt like a change and a challenge, so I embraced digital technology and software synths in particular. That's not to say I don't still use all the analogues, I just find some of these new soft synths quite interesting.
Reason is actually an amazing program if you are prepared to put in the work.

Nice Forum by the way, I've been checking it for a while.

Regards,
