You might have seen Carlo "M.Born" Nuevo in our Reason videos, and we're sure you'll see more of him. A talented rapper and beatmaker, Carlo's constantly making music! When he quickly needs to capture an idea there's nothing easier than opening up Take and record. Choose a backing beat, lay down a quick verse and get the right feeling. And once back in the studio, Carlo can export the recording via iTunes File Sharing and use it as the basis of the production. Or just share it with the UpRock guys for some quick feedback.

Take a listen to the basic sketch of his track "Alone in the Rain", recorded in Take:
