In this new video tutorial titled To Waveshape the Future, Dubspot instructor and electronic music producer Chris Petti shows you how to create a WaveShaper Combinator effect patch from scratch using Propellerhead Reason‘s powerful synthesizers Malström and Thor. First, Petti starts with a fully-built WaveShaper effect patch plugged into to the output of Thor (which is generating an unprocessed sine wave) with a series of real-time controls mapped to Combinator. When the WaveShaper is engaged, the unprocessed sound is transformed dramatically. Then, in a step by step process, Petti demystifies the method he used to create the effect patch and shows you how to build your own WaveShaper effect from scratch, utilizing with a blank combinator patch. At the end of the tutorial you should have a good grasp of how to Wave Shape (process, bend, twist, or modify) any incoming sound and make the lead elements in your tracks more effective and lively.
