The first thing I want to tell you about the Reason recording software is what its not…

I need to go into this now because a lot of newbie producers get confused and then end up not being happy with Reason.

So here we go…

The Reason recording software is NOT an audio recorder!

So you should not think about trying to record your band with Reason because its just not set up that way…

What you will find in Reason 4.0 is a massive range of Synths and samplers. Its a totally self contained unit meaning that you can produce and master a whole track without needing any other equipment at all.

I would recommend it if youre making dance or hip hop music on a laptop and dont want to set up a whole home studio.

If you do want to add vocal to your final track you could use a program like pro tools and use the Reason recording software as a plugin which works great.

But I just wanted to be clear that you cannot import your audio into Reason itself unless you just use snipets in the sampler.


When you pick up Reason you get a whole bunch of award winning synths to work with and tweak till your hearts content.


* Thor – the multi synth that can transform into a whole bunch of classic synths.
* The RPG-8 Arpeggiator – you will love playing with this as it creates some really nice random sounds.
* ReGroove – lets you work with your drum beats and add a lot of randomness so that your stuff wont get boring.

Final thoughts.

Reason is a great option for people on a budget who might not have the best computer. Its runs really light on CPU power and it has never crashed on me!

But remember the more tracks you add the slower things get…PERIOD.

I really think the Propellersheads boys who make Reason are doing great things with the package and look out for audio recording in the near future.

Such a cool program.

Cloth Diaper Tutorial

Sign up to post in the forum. It’s Free.

Cloth diapers are not what they used to be. I found that they were really no more trouble than disposable. There were a few extra steps involved but it wasn’t the tedious chore that some make it out to be. For those interested in trying them out, here is an overview.

There are four basic types of cloth diapers.

There are prefolds, which are just the flat, “old-time” diapers (not to be confused with “flats” which you have to fold a few times in order to create the thickness). You either pin them or use a plastic Snappi to hold it on. Or, some diaper covers are made so that they will hold the diaper in place without having to use a separate pinning mechanism. In the summer, my babies just wear a pre-fold without a cover.

The pros are that they are cheaper and a lot less trouble to maintain. You don’t have to worry about stuffing them (like with the pocket diapers). You can just wash them, dry them and throw them in a pile until you need them.

The cons are that they can be bulky (although if you are having a girl it isn’t as much of an issue because she can wear dresses and you don’t have to worry about fitting pants over them).

Then there are fitted diapers, which are like disposable diapers in their shape and in the way you put them on. They have elastic around the legs and either close with Velcro or snaps. You have to use a cover with these as well.

The Pros are that you don’t have to worry about pinning them and you just put them on like a disposable.

The cons are that they are more expensive, you still have to use a cover and they can take a long time to dry. They do come with inserts though. The inserts looks like cloth maxi pads and you snap them to the inside. This is nice if you have a heavy wetter. Some of the extra padding already sewn into them and that is what makes them take forever to dry.

Next are the all-in-one diapers(AIO’s). These look like the fitted diapers and have elastic around the legs and also close with either Velcro or snaps. The only difference is that you don’t have to use a cover. They have a layer of waterproof PUL already sewn over them or as a layer inside of them.

The pros are that these are probably the most convenient as you literally use them just like disposables. You don’t have to worry about stuffing them (as with the pocket diapers), you don’t have to worry about a cover, you don’t have to worry about pinning.

The cons are that they can be bulky and that if you have a heavy wetter they can leak. They are also pretty expensive. Depending upon how many layers are sewn into the diaper, they can take a long time to dry.

Last are the Pocket Diapers. They are “All-in-ones” in that they have the waterproof cover already sewn on. The difference is that you stuff these with ‘inserts’ (which can be anything from a pre-made insert to a folded up flat diaper).

The pros are that you can stuff them with as little or as much “stuffing” as your child needs (or as the situation calls for, stuff it heavier for long car rides, lighter for around the house). They also, for some reason, tend to be more trim and not as bulky as some of the others.

The cons are that you have to take the stuffing out before you put them into the hamper and then after you wash them, you have to stuff all of the inserts back in them.

The Pocket Diapers were my favorite with my now four year old. But I got so that I literally dreaded getting them out of the dryer and having to stuff them all. That’s why I switched to the pre-folds….they were so much easier. I am also concerned with using synthetic fabrics…I much prefer natural fibers. With Zoe I use unbleached prefolds with wool covers.

I also had times when I used the cloth at home and disposables at night and when we went out. Every little bit helps with finances and with the environment. It doesn’t have to be “all or none”.

Within the four basic style of diapers you will find different features and different materials. It can get pretty overwhelming. You just have to break it down in your mind. Categorize it into one of the categories and then go from there.

One of the variations is that some of the fitted diapers and AIO diapers are what they call “one size”. These are made with tons of snaps so that you are supposed to be able to fold them down and snap them so that they will fit a newborn and then unsnap them as the kid gets bigger and use them all the way up to toddler years. I’ve never had much use for these as I never could get a good fit with them.

With all types, you will find a few “store made” brands and then tons of WAHM (work-at-home-mom) brands.

Then there are the covers. That opens a whole new Pandora’s Box. The basic two, though, are wool versus synthetic waterproof materials.

I much prefer wool. Wool can store moisture up to 35 per cent of its own dry weight yet it remains dry to touch and speeds up the body’s own cooling system. Wool is breathable, it doesn’t hold in the heat like plastics would. It allows for the circulation of air. This helps to prevent diaper rash. Wool contains natural lanolin which creates a natural waterproof barrier. Wool is also an anti-bacterial. It does not have to be washed between every diaper change. Once every few weeks should be sufficient. Just let dry between uses.

You could also use a cover made with PUL. Some people find these to be less intimidating than wool…although, once you get the hang of wool, it really is quite simple.

There are many places online where you can buy and/or trade for new and used cloth diapers. Unfortunately, ebay has prohibited the selling of used cloth diapers at this time. There is a petition circulating to try to get this rule amended but in the meantime you will have to look elsewhere.

Access Tutorial

If you have used the Microsoft Office suite of programs you may be familiar with Word and Outlook for example. Two other components are Excel and Access. Both of these have the greatest learning curve and it takes a while to become competent. Many become familiar with the workings of Excel, but Access brings a new set of challenges.

In the early versions of Access a number of big glossy manuals were supplied with the package. These proved to be a valuable resource when looking for an Access tutorial. The manuals are no longer supplied and the user is expected to go online or use the build in help system. This is not always the best way to learn. What is needed is a step by step approach to designing and creating a database.

What should one look for in an Access tutorial? To begin with it is important to understand exactly what a database is. We can summarise that a database is used for storing and retrieving large amounts of information. All that information gets stored in what are known as tables. To create a table you would go into the table designer and create columns. For instance if you were creating a table of names and addresses you would have columns called first name, surname, address 1, town, city and postcode. Once the table is saved the data can then be entered. A table should represent a fact and should hold information relating to that fact. Another example of a table fact is invoice. Here you would have columns for invoice number, invoice date, invoice amount etc.

A better more user friendly way to enter data is by using a form. To create a form you would go into the form designer and select your data source. For example an invoice entry form could have the invoice table as the data source. You would then drag onto the form the fields or columns from the table. These provide the data entry boxes used to enter the data. Any data entered into an Access form is automatically saved to the table.

You might be thinking, I have the data in the table, but what if I want to get the data out. This is easily done in MS Access. You may have a situation where you want to know how many cars were sold in France in July. To do this you would use what is known as a query. A query is designed in the query designer and the first thing you do is select the table you wish to query from. You then drag the required table columns to the query grid and then run the query. Queries can get complex if you wish to join tables and create grouping or sum data.

It is important to know why you should and how to relate tables together. One reason is to eliminate duplicate data from the tables. You really want to store information about each fact only once. Relational database theory is worth learning in order to create robust Access databases. It would be very dangerous for instance to put customer and invoice information in the same table. A good Access tutorial will spend some time teaching the correct way to design your system.
