In Reason, put a delay device on any drum beat or instrument. Create an automation track for it. Then, make sure that the track’s record toggle button is on. Hit record, and go wild with changing the delay time (the box with numbers in it), feedback, delay unit (ms or steps), etc. If done right, you get a crazy effect because a non-fixed delay time has to compensate for the change by fluctuating the pitch, it’s really weird sounding. Try it!

You should add a sample of this effect. I’m using FL and am trying this now with random samples; sounds nice/better. Thanks for the info, help and samples.

Thanks for the suggestion. I put up a sample of a drum loop using this trick.
