Reason Patch A Day Is One Year Old!

The Reason Patch A Day blog started one year ago today, and while there have been a few missed days here and there, not to mention the occasional gaps due to holidays and work, over 400 patches have been posted in the last year.

It's been an interesting year for me. I've learned a lot about how to coax sounds from Reason's instruments, learned a little about blogging, and generally had a great time interacting with all of you in the comments sections and via email. So, thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to make Reason Patch A Day one of your daily (or frequent) internet destinations.

To celebrate this anniversary, I'll be taking a short break from the blog to work through some tutorials and try to gain back some of my energy regarding patch and sound design. I'll probably spend some time sampling some strange noises, as well, so there's no telling what I'll come back with when I resume posting next week.

Do you have any tracks you've put together using one of the patches here? It's always been my intention to share the musical creations people have made, using these tools, but so far no one has stepped up with anything to share. So, let's start the second year of Reason Patch A Day right. Send me your tracks (MP3s or RNS files) at patchaday (at) earthlink (dot) net and I'll get them posted here. If you send a MP3, please be sure to let me know what patches you used. I'll probably set up a Soundcloud account to host everyone's tracks.

Again, thanks for dropping by and spending your time here at Reason Patch A Day. I'll see you next week.

Congratulations on the one year mark! Sampling strange noises sounds very intriguing, can't wait to hear what's in store for Patch A Day. I'll have to go thru my song folder and find something to send in, because I know I've used your sounds on some of my work ;-).

Thanks, Lewis.72! I appreciate that.

And, yes, please look through some of your projects and let me know if there's something you'd like to post. I think it would be really interesting to hear what others have done with the patches posted here.
