Record Open Beta

Prepellerhead has just announced a moment ago on Twitter that beta version of Record is now open for everyone. I’ve been invited by @theaudiogeek last week to be a beta tester of Propellerhead Record (thanks Jon). But now if anyone want to try Record, you don’t need an invitation.

Record Open Beta lets you download the RC4 version of Record and fully use it without limitations until the official release on Sep 9, 2009. The software itself is really nice and I love it. Please note that if you’ve Reason installed on your machine, you can use Reason’s modules inside Record. If not and you want to experience Record teamed up with Reason, you can download the demo of Reason and use it together. But, Record have to be in demo mode to work with Reason’s demo.

The latest part of Record Micro Tutorial is about setting up Record Open Beta. It shows what to do when you open Record for the first time.

As a Reason user, I’d like to recommend all Reason users to try Record, even you don’t want to record anything. The way Record handles instrements and effects helps you organize your messy Reason racks. Record racks and the gorgeous mixer benefit Reason users in many ways. Try it and you’ll love it.

What is Propellerhead Record

May 21, 2009 2 comments

Propellerhead Record has been announced about 2 weeks ago with lots of rumors before then. Once it was announced, tons of news spread out through the internet. I don’t want to waste my time reading almost the same news from different resources. So, it’s time to start using Shovebox, application on mac to help capturing ideas & short note. I used Shovebox to bookmark and take some notes about Record, and check out them all at once today.

I don’t want to explain here what Propellerhead Record is, but I’ll recommend vdo and blog post those are informative and worth checking out.

The first thing I recommend everyone to watch is the official video from Propellerhead. Not much technical information mentioned in this video, but, actually I’d link to strongly recommend all official new product introduction videos from Propellerhead. They’re funny and can clearly explain the main concept of each product.

The next 2 videos are 2 parts of Record debut from Electronic Musician magazine, shot at Propellerhead Producer Conference in NY. Besides the brief demo of what Record is, gasp and applause of attendee when each feature of Record was revealed help me to experience the feel of this event. (especially when the SSL-modeled mixer showed up on screen) : Part 1, Part 2

Last buy not least, the in-depth preview writen by Peter Kirn in can explain almost every aspect of Record. Let’s see what Record can and can not. check it out here :

IMO, the look and feature of mixer modeled after SSL9000K console is very exciting. The closed environment of Record doesn’t allow 3rd-party AU or VST plugins. Anyway, I’d be cool to wire Reason and Record modules into the flexible legendary console. This must be the completely different experience from mixing with Reason mixer. 🙂

Furturemore, these 2 videos from MusoTalk TV are also worth checking.

What is "Something New" from Propellerhead Software?

May 9, 2009 Leave a comment

Last week, FutureMusic blog mentioned there’d be new Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) from Propellerhead, which would be announced in Producers Conference, an event held by Propellerhead. Moreover, This isn’t a new feature for Reason, but it’s complete new product.

Today, tweet from @propellerheadSW mentioned this video. It’s the look of people when looking at “Something New” from Propellerhead. If it actually is the new DAW, what do I expect?

There’re big-name out there; the new Protools 8, the bang-for-buck Apple Logic, Cubase5, soon-to-come Nuendo5 and Sonar8. and there’s a new coming such as Presonus Studio-One as well. The war of DAW is too tough if Propellerhead is making a conservative style DAW.

I’m thinking about a normal DAW come with all Reason modules as instruments and effects those can be used with third-party VST/AU stuffs. The classic cable wiring of Reason would be too messy and inconvinient for big scale of music production, saying orchestration with 64 NN-XT samplers. So, making a new DAW with Reason modules would help. This shouldn’t be an upgrade for Reason since many people still love the way Reason works as all-in-one and easy to get started music production.

just my 2 cents, let’s see what will happen in a few days.
