Redrum or Kong?

Tell us how you got that killer synth effect, why you love your sequencer of choice or that you are sick of hearing the same lame preset every time you load up malstrom ¬_¬

Redrum or Kong?

Postby kikmenow » Fri Apr 15, 2011 5:59 pm

Hey guys, I was just wondering what you guys think is better, Redrum drum computer or Kong Drum designer? Personally I prefer Kong Drum designer as it allows me to link samples, modify and filter each one individually before the output and I prefer the visual display.

What do you guys use in Reason and why? :)
I have the same guitar as Dave does in his introduction video. It's because we're cool.

Wow, lots of redrums? Isn't that a bit messy to work with though?

Mmm nice Idea I guess. but then you have to layer it manually? With Kong you can link pads easy peasy :)

I guess it's down to preference though, it must suit the way you work :D

I do it like this: create a mixer just below my main mixer and a kong beneath that, then i rout all the different parts to a channel in the second mixer. After that, i have different combinators that i use as send effects and i put each of them on a different aux of the drum mixer. The combinators are things i made earlier, a drum processor, a snare processor and a high end processor (just some reverbing, eq'ing and widening on that last one). Then i go around tweaking one instance at the time. Like that i can see what devices are for which sample and so on without flipping it.

Seeing as I don't have R5 yet, redrum :P

If I did have acces to Kong though, I'd probably still use redrum for the sequencing, but route the gate outs to the Kong, because I'm more used to working with the redrum sequencer. And I like the pattern sequencer as well, programming beats on the fly :)
