Just one year ago James Bernard set himself the challenge to produce a video with tips and/or tricks each week for Reason and Record users. And he delivered! 52 weeks long he published a video per week. Last week he published the final 52nd video of the whole series. Nothing else to do for you then to take all that knowledge of these past 52 weeks and use for good!
In January 2011 James Jacob, better known to his fans as Jakwob, went to the United States for his first major North American tour. The Propelleheads cameras met up with him in San Francisco, California to see him live in front of five thousand eager Dubstep fans.
Real drums. Nothing can beat it. Loops or multisampled kits can take you a long way, but if you want your pop or rock track to really come alive, you need a real drummer playing real drums in a real room. And Record Drum Takes gives you exactly that. Each Drum Take ReFill comes with two separate three minute backing tracks of live drumming organized in classic song form; intro, verse, chorus, bridge and breakdown. Record Drum Takes builds a steady foundation for any rock or pop creation.
Propellerhead Software today announced the immediate availability of Record Drum Takes—big league rock and pop multitrack drums played by skilled session drummers for Propellerhead’s brand new recording software Record. Record Drum Takes builds a steady foundation for any rock or pop creation.
The Beastie Boys could probably lay claim to a few very prestigious titles. They are one of the longest surviving acts in Hip Hop, one of the best selling, one of the most respected, and one of the most experimental. During the last 3 decades they have gone from Hardcore Punk to Rap and just about everywhere else in the genre catalog, spawning hit after hit in the process.
Remember the time when samples were something you sampled and not loaded from your hard drive? When a sampler was a machine that could record samples, not just play them back. As samplers became software instead of machines, they came to rely on external sample editing software for recording and editing the samples and the art of spur-of-the-moment creative sampling was pretty much lost. Now we are bringing it back to Reason 5 with its live sampling input.
The past few weeks were what somewhat quiet at the ‘music industry’ front. But guess what? Suddenly the internet shot into rumour mode again. The Propellerheads from Sweden had something cooking. With a big teaser on the website we were (politely) asked to wait a few hours. In the meanwhile everyone started to guess what it could be. Would Reason get its next updated version?
In this interview, San Francisco producer/engineer Michael Winger explains how he is using Reason, Record and Pro Tools together. He talks about some of the creative options this setup gives him and also gives us a demonstration on how to set it up.
In this video, Reason veteran Josh Mobley talks about his transition to using Record for his professional work. Combining Reason and Record offers significant improvements over Reason when used in a ReWire setting. Josh shows us how uses Reason drums rewired to Logic 9.
