Propellerhead Software has announced the release of Record 1.5 and Reason 5. These highly anticipated upgrades introduce new instruments, effects, sequencing, sounds, patches and more for composing, beatmaking, loop-mangling, vocal treatment, songwriting, remixing and music production.
Reason Record Duo feature highlights :
• Introducing Kong Drum Designer (Reason): Load, sculpt, build and tweak your sounds with your choice of drum synthesis, sampling, REX loops, physical modeling and custom-made effect modules for percussion on Kong's 16 pads.
• Dr. REX octuples into Dr. Octo Rex Loop Player (Reason): No matter how you use it—as a pattern sequencer for loops, or to completely mangle your REX'ed audio – it is "guaranteed to inspire".
• New Neptune Pitch Adjuster and Voice Synth Device (Record): Flexible high-quality processor to correct and shift pitches, create backing harmonies, formant shift or "take your vocals into outer space".
• Block based pattern sequencing mode makes song creation fast and flexible (Both): Go from pattern-based arrangements to linear—to patterns again. Take your music beyond the eight bar loop.
• Vastly expanded Factory Sound Bank with Signature patches (Reason): Reason's sound bank more than doubles in size, thanks in large part to signature contributors: Printz Board, Bomb Squad, Jason McGerr, Sharooz, Adam Beyer, Keith LeBlanc, Cari Lekebusch & others.
• Live sampling is back. In the rack. (Reason): Re-explore the lost art (and fun) of sampling. Every sample player becomes a sampler; record with a single click — further tweak with the built-in editor.
• A number of other additions that guarantee to make your music making more fun: Multi-core optimization, on-screen keyboard and scaling audio and MIDI clips, interface enhancements and many more too numerous to name.
