Warehouse action

posted by Record Blog 2009-08-28 at 16:20

We are getting closer to the big day on September 9. Here are some pictures from the warehouse in the deep south. Deep south of Sweden, that is.

The warehouse ninjas are furiously packing boxes, soon coming to a retailer near you.

And yes, there will be some goodies inside too. Note the guy's wristband that says 'metal' something. Only metalhead warehouse ninjas get to pack our boxes.

And here's the box that no doubt many readers of this blog will get in the end - Record for Reason owners.

To keep the boxes fresh throughout the transit across sea and land, we put them into this scary looking machine...

...and they emerge on the other side wrapped in clean, hygienic, stain-proof plastic that you will have fun tearing off and tossing in the bin once the box is in your hands. Oh, the sad life of a piece of shrink-wrap plastic. 

When the warehouse ninjas are done assembling the boxes, they stack them into pallets like these.

In the end, they look like this, while waiting for shipping to one of our distributors worldwide. Perhaps your copy is inside one of them?

Friends -- why is it necessary to create this much physical waste for a product composed of binary digits?

regardless -- looking forward to buying one, preferably electronically. thanks

lets hope this time, I (and 400+ more ) don't have to wait 6 weeks AFTER release because your last UK distro was bad for reason 4.

I've always loved your packaging - you guys/gals do a great job! And one of those copies of Record for Reason is definitely mine.

I'd claim one of those boxed copies is mine, but I'm kind of afraid of the blandat gods, whoever they are: these copies have obviously been claimed by them...still, I can't wait, provided I survive their wrath! =)

Loving the design...but why the excess packaging? C'mon Props, you know better than that.

I can't remember the times when record did not exist. Why don't you also sell the box at IKEA? Then I could have some boxed swedish sweets and cookies too when I buy it.
But it would be great to pack the autorisation key into my line6 UX-8 where already some of this stuff is in the flash.

@Pfog. I doubt there will be a shortage this time. I know my local store has a minimum of 200 units on order...

I cannot wait. 8 Days to go... Will put me back in business. I have just installed Snow Leopard, which now has osx threatening to install Rosetta to get my old Reason 2.5 working...

Hmm... selling Propellerhead stuff worldwide at IKEA... that's fun... and maybe, just maybe it would - seriously - be a good idea.

After all... both companies have reached global success by doing things "wrong" i.e. "their own way", both companies are very swedish in a way, both companies operate very internationally, and well... both companies sell flat boxes...

Maybe there could even be a special Propellerhead IKEA packaging, made a bit flatter than usual and in the same material as the IKEA boxes.. Toghether with some single-color industrial-style graphics, it could look rather serious.

And Propellerhead products are serious stuff indeed, despite their candy-colored GUI's.

Since there has been no countdown on home page for imminent release I am no longer excited about Record. No!!!!! only joking. How many more days now. One or two, depending where you live.

Cheers
