This Propellerhead Reason tutorial takes a look at WaveShaper Combinator Effects w/ Malström:
Dubspot instructor and electronic music producer Chris Petti shows you how to create a WaveShaper Combinator effect patch from scratch using Propellerhead Reason’s powerful synthesizers Malström and Thor.
Petti starts with a fully-built WaveShaper effect patch plugged into to the output of Thor (which is generating an unprocessed sine wave) with a series of real-time controls mapped to Combinator. When the WaveShaper is engaged, the unprocessed sound is transformed dramatically.
Then, Petti demystifies the method he used to create the effect patch and shows you how to build your own WaveShaper effect from scratch, utilizing a blank combinator patch.
At the end of the tutorial you should have a good grasp of how to Wave Shape (process, bend, twist, or modify) any incoming sound.
