SEP 13 2012 Modulation-o-rama: Rack Extension Tutorial with FXpansion Etch Might Make Knees Wobbly

There seems to be no end to the amount of plug-ins and extensions for power digital audio workstations, as well as tutorials explaining how to use complicated software.  Propellerhead Reason has recently opened its rack module function to developers, who are hoping, like their analog tinkering buddies, to extend the use of the software in hopes to create something grander.

FX expansions seem to be the most popular element to mess with, and Etch has been one of the most used so far.  For users, it’s nice to be able to route devices and effects however they like within the program, and this tutorial helps us understand how it’s done.
