It's all about you

Posted May 27, 2015, 10:13 a.m.

Since we released profile pages earlier this year, enabling you to reveal your musical self to the world, we’ve been busy remastering Discover and pieces to be more about you and your music.

On your pieces, the cover art from Figure and Take is prominently displayed - so sharpen those photo editing skills! Reason users: don’t worry, we’ll get to you soon!

Want to add a bit more context to your music? Add a description for each piece via your profile. Express yourself!

See and listen to what a piece is based on, or what it has inspired, right there on the page. There’s also more information about your pieces available at a glance. Length, plays, number of inspirations, date; it’s all there together with your profile picture. You did add one, right?

If you still want to know a bit more, open the details window and find key, tempo and other information you might find useful for your music making.

We hope you’ll enjoy this as much as we’ve enjoyed building it for you! We want to know what you think so we can continue making Propellerhead even better, so please take it all for a test spin, then come back and tell us!

Have fun!

Propellermix: "The vultures", he cried

Posted April 16, 2015, 8:02 a.m.

For this week's Propellermix, we were completely smitten with Alexis Snyder and her song '"The vultures", he cried!'. While the song is hauntingly beautiful on its own, there was something with the phrasing that just begged for a jazzy bossanova groove... We simply had no choice but to try it out! Take a listen:

 

Try it yourself! Add something to the original song and see in which direction you'll take it. Simply open it in Take or Reason on the player page and start making music. We'd love to hear what you come up with, so make sure you drop your result to Propellerhead and send us a tweet @PropellerheadSW or share your music on our Facebook page.

Figure, Take and Reason updates

Posted April 1, 2015, 9:03 a.m.

We’re happy to announce the release of new versions of Figure, Take and Reason!


Take

Never sing a flat note with Take. The new “Voice Tune” helps you stay in tune, or gives you that modern R’n’B sound when turned all the way up. Clean up, distort or color your recordings with effects on each channel, give your tracks a “final mix” sound with mastering presets, and sing in a key that works for you with transposable backing tracks.

Download Take on the App Store (free!)


Figure

Figure, the fast and fun beat making app for iOS is now free! Also: Make a beat in Figure and open it in Take—the key of your Figure song is automatically brought over to Take, so Voice Tune gives you great results instantly.

Download Figure on the App Store


Reason

Reason gets a bunch of new stuff, too, based on all the feedback we’re getting from you. Reason 8.2 features a slick new auto-update system so you're always using the most current version, without the hassle of bulky manual installs. You’ll also get Improved patch navigation with Revert Browse, extended Remote support for Redrum, more colors for tracks, channels and clips, and tons of other improvements. It’s a free download for owners of Reason 8, of course.

Propellermix: Here's to you

Posted March 26, 2015, 11:58 a.m.

It's a new week and you know what means, right? You guessed it! A new Propellermix feature! This week we're highlighting a remix made by our own Leo.

We asked Leo about his remix and how he approached it:


"I found “Here’s to you” by yourlittlegem through an email notification, as it was based a beat I had made previously. I instantly realized I had to remix it. To get rid of the original beat I had made, I opened both the original piece and yourlittlegem’s version in Reason, phase inverted one channel and got the difference—just the vocals (and quite a bit of background noise, but that just adds to the vibe). Then I built it from the ground up as a new song in Reason. Hope you’ll like it!"

Want to add vocals, an instrument or re-arrange the Propellermix? Just open it in Take or Reason to add your own part. And if you want to try your hand at remixing the original yourself—simply open it in Take or Reason and start making music. We'd love to hear what you come up with so make sure you send us a tweet @PropellerheadSW or share your music on our Facebook page.

Propellermix: Don't let it fall

Posted March 19, 2015, 8:35 a.m.

With so much inspiring and great new music from our users, it's hard to keep our hands off. For this week's Propellermix, we found the lovely voice of Angeles2299 and especially the tune Don't let it fall, which we've chosen to remix. The idea was to intepret and build on what Angeles2299 already hinted on in her song, with a distinct disco/synth feeling with lots of swooshes and noise sweeps.
