    haha as someone said, u must make sure u have midi enabled and ur keyboard selected and all that other stuff just so u can do anything!

    First open reason, select new. U will see a mixer. Got to Create-Sequencer Track. This will give u ur basis of ur beat, in bars. the tempo will be at the bottom of the screen and u may need to change it depending on what u will be making. Create a Redrum, NNXT, and Dr. Rex Loop Player. This will now give u options of synths/strings (NNXT) Drums and One Hits (Redrum) and possible melody's (Dr.Rex). On the redrum u will have 10 channels. Each one can hold a sound/instrument, Redrum will play almost all file extentions but mainly u will be using .wav files. Open the folder on one of the channels (Not the main patch folder), and choose what you want, i'd suggest one redrum just full of drum sounds. Mess around with patterns, u can store 8 patterns over 4 banks (A,B,C,D) thats a possible 32 different drum sequences. Once u are happy with what you have choose the L and R cursers on the sequencer. Say u wanted 4 bars of one beat, put the L at the 1st bar and the R at 4 bars, right click on the redrum and select "copy pattern to track"..This will paste the selected pattern to however many bars you want...4 in this case.

    Once you have sorted ur drums out its time 4 the melody. If using the Dr.Rex u can open the folder and select loops from the soundbank to preview. Then you can tweak them on the main Dr.Rex device. this is the easiest way as a newbie to find melodies. Dr.Rex also has percussion loops (eg. Drums, Tambourines, Bongo's). Remember anything u want played in Dr.Rex will have to have a .Rex2 extention. U cant play wav files in Rex. However you can use different slices of a Rex melody in the redrum channels, if u only want parts of the loop. A Dr.Rex loop will change its tempo to fit the tempo you have set even if its originally different.

    NNXT may be used 4 sampling in the future but for now i'd just use it as a synth. There are many different presets for it, including Strings, Piano and Rhythmic. I'd suggest playing around with the notes and finding the sounds you like. I will say though, Reason is a programme which you will benefit in searching yourself, trying things and experimenting. I havent really read my manual but learned a lot of the stuff through trial and error, sometimes you'll find something by accident, or tweak a knob on a device and get a better sound..

    Remember, whenever you want to select a device to work on, they are listed on the left of the sequencer, make sure you have clicked the box next to it (like a keyboard icon) or you're changes wont work!

    get back to me if u need any more help and pick some of the stuff up from the sample downloads section here. Every producer needs a big Drum Library...
