This sub-page is dedicated to all of our sound related projects, using 2 applications: Pro Tools and Reason.
We did use Pro Tools earlier in the school year, and this time around, we got to learn the various virtual instruments that Pro Tools had. We learned how to use the Boom Drum Machine, the Mini-Grand (piano), the DB-33 (organ), the Vaccum (synthesizer), the Structure Free and the XPand!2 (multi-channel plugins).
Reason was a brand new application for us to learn, and it also had a bunch of virtual instruments to learn. We learned how to use the Redrum tool, a keyboard hooked directly to our computers, the Dr. Octo tool, the RPG8 tool, the Matrix tool, and many more, which we used to create multiple pieces of music.
EDM 8-Bar Song
With our newly gained knowledge on Reason, we were told to create an 8-Bar EDM song using Reason. This song had to be 128 BPM, and was going to go into a combined EDM song that included everyone else’s 8-Bar songs. Mine isn’t exactly an EDM song, but I wanted to use a song that I was familiar with, and revamp it a little bit so it did sound electric.
Heres the audio for my EDM 8-Bar song:
