Reason Combinator Patch: Moar Cowbell
Just something I threw together today, and it's entirely for fun. It's not really a cowbell sound as such, well maybe a tiny cowbell, it sounds a bit too "glassy". I came across the sound last week messing around with effects. Basically you've got two Dr:REX units playing the same loop. One is fed straight into the mix and the other has it's amplitude envelope down to a minimum and is fed into a RV-7 reverb unit where the resultant "bell" sound is then fed into the mix. This setup provides the best sound, but for completeness I decided to quickly add the ability for it work with just one Dr:REX unit or external sound source. I did this by splitting the source, feeding one into another reverb unit and EQ'ing the result to remove the unwanted lower frequencies. The sound isn't great but it's acceptable in certain situations. The video below will give you an idea of what it can and can't do. N.B. in my haste to get it done I never upped the BMP from 120 to 150, like I had planned to do, halfway through the demo. Ah well.
