The NN-19 Virtual Keyboard Display > Selecting and Editing Key Zones - Pg. 246

1. 2. Load a "pad" patch from the Reason Factory Sound Bank. A good one for this example is the Big Strings patch, located in the Strings folder. The Filter is already activated. Set the filter mode to the LP 12 setting and make sure the Resonance slider is set to 0. Also make sure the Filter Frequency slider is set to its maximum setting of 127. Arm the NN-19 sequencer track to receive MIDI and play a sustained chord with your left hand. With your right hand, click on the Filter Frequency and drag the control down, so you can hear the filter close as it decreases in value. Once the Filter Frequency is set to 0, all of the high frequencies are filtered out. Try this same exercise with other filter modes, such as the Notch or Band Pass, to hear the effect. 3. The Resonance slider is used in combination with the Filter Frequency parameter. It emphasizes the frequencies set by the Filter slider, which thins the sound out, but also increases the sweep effect mentioned earlier. In order to better understand how the Resonance slider works with the Filter Frequency, try the following exercise. 1. 2. Using the same sample patch as before, set the filter mode to LP 12, and set both the Filter Frequency and Resonance sliders to 0. Arm the NN-19 sequencer track to receive MIDI and play a sustained chord with your left hand. With your right hand, click and drag the Resonance slider until it reaches a value of 70. Release the mouse and listen to the emphasis on the lower frequencies.
