Abelton tutorial number 6 – using reason inside abelton

if your like me, then you love using abelton, but you also love making drum beats with reason.
you can use your reason drumbeats (and anything else you have) inside abelton.

its an easy process once you know how to do it, and you can save the setup as a template, so that when you open abelton its already wired for use with reason.

so fire up abelton and lets get going.

basically im going to show you with pictures how to :
1) create new audiotracks
2) set the input to reason
3) wire up reason so that the individual drum sounds have a channel inside abelton
4) save the setup as a template
5) record the drums from reason inside abelton

so, on with part 1

make a few audio tracks (ctrl+t)
