MUSIC TECH: Propellerhead Software's RECORD
Propellerhead Software, creators of industry standard titles such as REASON and RECYCLE, have answered the prayers of the faithful. Propellerhead's Reason software has developed into one of the most powerful and sonically superior virtual instruments/sequencers on the market. You can compose ill drum sequences, incorporate samples and build tracks with massive synths within a hardware emulated environment. The only thing missing and requested by users of the program (myself included), was a way to record digital audio into Reason. Propellerhead has answered with the release of RECORD. Record gives you unlimited audio tracks, world class effects and mixing gear, and a whole new take on music recording. Record was designed for musicians - not audio engineers.
RECORD incorporates Reason seamlessly. With a registered copy of Reason, there will be no need to launch both programs simultaneously. When you open Record, all of your components (rack gear) and refills are available. Record allows you to work within your normal set up and add the power and flexibility expected from current DAWs (digital audio workstations). Record comes standard with a suite of effects, including Line 6 modeling amps, that can be used in conjunction with Reason's built in effects. The mixing console's sound and signal processing is faithfully modelled after the legendary SSL 9000k analog mixing desk.
