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.

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: To the sky

Upbeat nu disco or laid back hip hop? For this week's Propellermix, Mattias and Stefan tried out both. Inspired by Nino Brown's vocal harmonies, your friends at Propellerhead locked themselves in the studio for a Propellermix duel! Two people entered, two remixes came out. Take a listen below!

Propellermix: Bittersweet

Posted March 5, 2015, 11:20 a.m.

At Propellerhead we love making music, especially together with others. From time to time, we select a piece of music made by you, remix it and share it with the world as a Propellermix. This week we fell in love with the song Bittersweet Demo by WolfKaiser93. The song is equal parts radio pop and synth anthem, checking all the boxes to be the next hipster hit! We simply had to expand it in Reason. Take a listen to the result above!

Want to add vocals, an instrument or re-arrange the song? 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 Figure, 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.

Reason Xmas Marathon 2002 (again)

Posted Dec. 18, 2013, 11:09 a.m.

It was the the year 2002. The British Empire lay in ruins, Linkin Park won MTVs Video Music Award for Best Rock Video and George W Bush was two years into his first term as the President of the United States. These were grim years... At Propellerhead Software, we were hard at work trying to come up with something to break the doom and gloom. Something to bring a little Christmas spirit to Reason racks all over the world.

After much consideration, we launched a simple Xmas music competition. Each Reason user could compose eight bars of Christmas music at 120 bpm. We also handed out a rex loop of sleigh-bellish jingle jangle (actually, it was Ernst's weird leg-or-arm-mounted jingly contraption that we recorded for Dan's 1999 xmas app - ReXmas) that was optional to use in the Christmas composition.

When the loops had been submitted, the users could vote for the top loops, some fancy prizes were handed out... and there was much rejoicing.

But the best was yet to come: taking all the 176 xmas loops and splicing them together into a hellish 47 minute musical marathon that we shared with the users and that we have enjoyed here at the office around xmas time ever since.

And now we think it's time to share this holiday spirit gem with all of you again. Enjoy!
