Here is the kind of thing where the “Worn tape” effect really shines: a retro EBM/synthwave type bassline. Sounds ok but very flat. Put it into “Dirty Reverb”, “Worn Tape” & “X-Pressor”. Uses Mod Wheel on “Worn Tape” to demonstrate a couple of tape-stop/scratch fx. The whole thing comes alive.

Dry piano loop > Then add Hypnotizer (comb), Paracrusher & Dirty Reverb > Finally add Stutter Chopper and Epic Reverb, using Mod wheel to hold the final reverb decay in a soft feedback loop.

Dry Synth loop into Worn Tape to add a natural wow & flutter and some warmth, Glitch Delay for more interesting artifacts, then a touch of Epic Reverb & XPressor for intensity and density.

Customer reviews from the “Reasontalk forum”:

“..the great thing about these ones are how characterful they are and how much flexibility you get with so few controls. Definitely reminds me more of guitar pedals which I think is super nice. The Unicorn Shimmer and Unicorn Delay send fx versions are now part of my default Reason template.”

“For anyone making more alternative/indie stuff in Reason I can’t recommend these FX packs enough. Been using them in everything I’ve produced this year cause they just give me the sound I want.”

“These are all really, really impressive…there was an instant “Oh wow” factor for each one.”
