Reason Combinator Workshop
Build your dream instruments and load up fat, layered sounds in seconds with the Combinator, Reason's unique tool for combining and controlling devices. It's not an effect unit. It's not a synth or sampler - it's both and more!
 
The Combinator is a sophisticated device that allows you to build elaborate chains of Reason units - instruments, effects, and pattern sequencers. With its ability to load up complex instruments routed through effect units and dynamic processors in one go, the Combinator is an extremely playable and performance-friendly device, perfect for both stage and studio use. In this workshop, we will demonstrate step-by-step how to build both custom instruments and unique effects, taking advantage of Reason’s control voltage jacks and the Combinator’s built-in programmer.
