Book News Annotation:
Step-by step instructions and screenshots demonstrate how to install the Reason music maker software on a Windows XP or Macintosh OS X, and create a piece of music with Reason's analog emulated synthesizers, digital samplers, effect processors, and pattern sequencing devices. Later tutorials discuss recording a performance to the sequencer, editing tracks, connecting multiple effect devices, and setting up a MIDI controller for remote control.
