Over the weekend, MusicRadar was lucky enough to attend the 2012 Propellerhead Producers Conference at Ministry Of Sound.

Given Reason 6.5's recent unveiling, the new Rack Extensions were, inevitably, a big topic for the event.

In the first of a series of tutorial videos from the event, resident Reason expert James Bernard shows us how to use one of those Rack Extensions - Propellerhead's own dual-LFO unit Pulsar - as a playable synth. See how he uses it to make a classic Reese-style bass sound above.

Incidentally, Pulsar is free to all Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials 1.5 owners until 1 October - so go download it from the Rack Extensions store now.

Check out our full guide to the Reason Rack Extensions.
