How To Use Multiple Controllers With Reason

How To Use Multiple Controllers At The Same Time With Propellerhead Reason

by TaurusBeats (Taurus James)

Question from subscriber:

How do you use two controllers in reason(like in your beat videos)? I thought you can only select one.

Response:

Yes, it is possible to use multiple midi controllers to play multiple instruments in Reason. However, only one of them gets to be the master keyboard at a time.

This only matters when you need to record a performance. Reason will only record midi from the master keyboard. Also, the master keyboard can be assigned to different instruments easily by just clicking on the device's track in the sequencer.

The other keyboards are assigned to specific instruments through the midi devices section of Reason's hardware interface device at the top of the rack.

Want to use multiple hardware control surfaces at the same time in Propellerhead Reason?

In this video, I'm using multiple USB/MIDI hardware controllers (Akai MPD32 and M-Audio Oxygen25) at the same time. I show how you can setup and use each control surface to trigger a specific device within Propellerhead Reason.

What's good fam ? Yo I replied about that track earlier "When Im Gone". Man I need that joint super bad. I kept listening to it over and over and I already got a song wrote for it. Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam. Grace and Peace - Ricon
