Rack Extensions -

RE Must-Haves | #1: Selig Audio

I have quite a few Rack Extensions by now so I thought I should post on my favorite ones in an ongoing segment called "RE Must-Haves". This is not a paid endorsement or aynthing like that. These are just some of the new RE for Reason that I think are: useful, indispensable or just plain bitchin'. My own personal favorites I guess you'd say.  

First up is Selig's stuff . To put it simply, these have become like "indespensible mixing utilities" to me, so I figure it will be easy to write about them. :)

gain
Selig Gain

This one is the most "tool-like" of the three IMO. Very practical handling of gain, among other things. Put simply, it gives you much more control over your gain staging in Reason. Bonus: this device gives control over the pan laws too.

I tend to use this most on vocals...probably because those are always my most wildly fluctuating tracks, with regards to the levels. I use it just like the directions on the rear panel say: calibrate first, set target and then let it do it's business.

deess rack
Selig DeEsser

Another one mostly for vocals, obviously. Pretty straightforward here, de-ess with no stress. I think it has to be the easiest and most effecient de-ess plug i have ever used. To have the sibilance completely separated from the signal is an awesome thing.

★★★★★

That's it for my first short and simple review. Selig Audio creates very practical and smart Rack Extensions and now that I have them, I really can't imagine mixing in Reason without them. This is why I've opened this segment with them, and they are 5 out of 5 for me.  Read more about their features on the individual product pages, and try them for yourself.
