Pseudo-organic drums using Reason VST & Ableton Live

The p is silent 😂
Let’s do some digital drum programming, but using organic source material recorded on acoustic instruments. It’s a perfect hybrid workflow: the precision of electronic music, the tastiness of acoustic percussion.

I’ll show four methods to achieve this here:
1. Reason’s Dr OctoRex
2. Reason’s Beatmap
3. Ableton Live’s Simpler
4. Ableton Live’s Euclidian Sequencer (in Max4Live)

You can get access to all the Reason devices with a Reason+ subscription: (affiliate link)
The Max4Live Euclidian sequencer is here:
