In This Lesson: How to use the Kong Drum Designer
After that intense 15 minute Maelstrom tutorial, let's move onto something a ton easier and more laid back: Kong! This is a short one, but well worth the time you spend on it! So...
…why use Kong, rather than Redrum? Well, the thing is, they both have different purposes.
Redrum is useful for designing patterns and beats.
Kong is useful for taking those beats, and applying more unique and interesting sounds to them.
Typically, you would create a pattern in Redrum first, then you would drag that MIDI data into a Kong track, and use that for the processing of the sound.
That is a basic overview of Kong. I will be creating more tutorials that go into Kong in a more advanced manner in the Free Reason tutorials section.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
