Scream 4 Sound Destruction Unit > The Body Section - Pg. 324

SCREAMING MIX Aside from using the Scream 4 as a send or insert for your individual Reason devices, the Scream 4 can also be used as a mastering effect. By using the Tape preset in the Damage section, you can introduce a very warm and welcome tape saturation that will give your mix the kick it needs. To use the Scream 4 as a mastering effect, try the following exercise. Before you begin, open any Reason demo song, located in the Demo Songs folder in the Reason Program folder. 1. 2. Press the Tab key to flip the Device Rack. Click once on the AUDIO IN device and select the Scream 4 from the Create pull-down menu.
