Chapter 5. Building a Song > Adding a SubTractor

Adding a SubTractor

In Reason, the SubTractor Analog Synthesizer is a good instrument for writing a bass line. The SubTractor is a virtual analog synth—it generates “pure” waveform tones that are very fat-sounding for bass and techno-acid parts.

The SubTractor has an advantage over typical sampler bass patches, which pitch-shift one audio sample across the keyboard. Instead, the SubTractor generates a new (fresh) tone for each note, so you don't lose high frequencies with low notes, or low frequencies in the high register.
