    There will come a time when you've tried everything you're not and the only thing left will be what you are

    A helpful tip Alphatonez.

    I would add that the layered sounds do not need to play all the way through;

    You can add really short sound to help with the attack portion like in LA Synthesis.

    You can play a sound with a slow envelope to add some motion to sustained sounds.

    It can even be effective to add some delay to one or more layers so that the sounds are not perfectly lined up.

    i do this all the time. especially with the kick drum.
    i find i like the top and bottom of the kick drums to be independent.
    it's way easier to make that sit in the mix (at least for me)
    i dont do this very often with other things though... if i do it too much.. things start to get messy.

    On Reason (7.x) that is super simply, Reason have this already integrated with the new bus channels and make it easy to group your tracks, and even group your mixer groups to process them together.
    Create parallel channels with a single click for separate processing.
    Very easy to play with them arround and best only a ghost channel iss created, that take all changes you made on the audio or midi datas of the source channel you have create the parallel channel from.

    The Song stays Clean and you have no more voices in the Sequencer as realy need.

    Great new feature in Reason.. love it
