Propellerheads Reason 6 Video Tutorial: Pulveriser x 3 – Bass Compression, Filter Effects +

In this tutorial Dubspot instructor and electronic musician Chris Petti takes you through three very powerful uses and applications for the versatile new Pulveriser effect processor in Propellerhead’s Reason 6.

Pulveriser brings together crunchy compression, dirty distortion, a multimode filter and flexible modulation in a single sound-crunching effect. Crush, mangle, and destroy your sounds. Apply careful parallel compression to bring out the details of a sample or recording. Use the envelope follower when recording live instruments for responsive, expressive filter effects.

First Use on Sub Bass

In the first example, the Pulveriser will be applied to an already heavy and solid Sub Bass patch. Listen as the Pulveriser brings a new level of depth and dimension to the bass thru its compressor , distortion, and parallel processing capabilities

Second Use on Synth Lead

In this second example, the Pulveriser will be applied to a lead synth patch. This example focuses on the Tremor’s spread functionality and parallel processing to add width and animation to the sound

Third Use on Synth Pad

In this final example, the Pulveriser will be applied to a synth pad sound. This example uses the Tremor and Spread functions, and shows how the Tremor’s rate can be controlled dynamically by incoming volume thru the Envelope Follower. The result is a pad/texture sound that now lives and breathes.

Here is a track that Chris Petti co-produced with up and coming producer and Dubspot staff DJ Koolis.
