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: To the sky

Posted March 10, 2015, 8:40 a.m.

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!

Want to add vocals, an instrument or remix 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 send us a tweet to @PropellerheadSW or share your music on our Facebook page.

Artist Drop: Mike Kuz

Posted Feb. 6, 2015, 4:24 p.m.

Check out this raw beat straight from hip hop producer Mike Kuz. Wether you rap, remix or sample—open this beat in Reason or Take and make music! It's not every day you can collaborate with a producer/engineer from Stadiumred Studios, a studio with over 12 Grammy wins to its name.

Mike Kuz is an NYC based music producer & mix engineer from Newington, CT. It wasn’t long after his 2010 move to New York that he began earning stripes in the industry, contributing to works by artists such as Wale, J. Cole, Slaughterhouse, Common, Teyana Taylor and more. Working closely with Hip-Hop legends Just Blaze & Young Guru, Kuz has an endless source of knowledge and inspiration to draw from. He has been instrumental in creating the sounds for up-and-comers OnCue, The I.S.A. & S*T*Y.

Morning Tokyo

In our latest video a piece of music starts in Tokyo, gets remixed in New York and sung on in San Francisco. But it doesn't end there! Listen to the songs below and simply click one to visit the player page. You can then open it in in Reason, Take or Figure and join the music making. Sample, remix, sing, clap, hum or strum - then share it with the world, or with yourself.

Propellerhead: Make Music Together

Posted Jan. 16, 2015, 10:58 a.m.

Today is a big day for Propellerhead. But not only for us. In the future we might look back on this day and say that this was when we saw the first incarnation of the world’s open music sharing network. If you haven’t done so already, check it out and try it for yourself. It’s free and it's super easy to get started.

Ernst 2What we launch today is a beta, meaning it’s far from finished. We have a lot of things planned. What you can see today is a glimpse of the future, an open internet music creation network letting anyone take part in music making, right as it happens. Our new service is a place where you can create from scratch or find building blocks, where you can discover tracks to remix or sample. But most importantly, it’s a place where you can get into music creation only doing the parts you love, whether it’s singing, playing guitar, rapping, creating beats, producing or just messing around with sound.

I think I also have to say something about what this service is not. It’s not a publishing service. It will be where music creation is happening, not where you see the polished result. And it’s not for backup or archiving—it’s for the music you are making, here and now. It’s not a tool for professionals who are looking to fully integrate their DAW production work. But don’t get me wrong, Reason fits beautifully into our new system too, as the music production powerhouse it is.

Let me also tell you that launching the service hasn't changed anything about how you use our apps. You can still be completely private about your music. What we are offering is an extension to what you already do. When you do decide to collaborate, you’re still in control. The stuff you have dropped can be visible to the whole world or only to those you want to share it with.

On a more personal note, this is the most exciting thing that this company has done since I helped found it. I have dedicated my life to help people’s musical dreams come true and as of today we start expanding that idea to people I never dreamed that we could reach.

We want your feedback. We have ideas about what to do next, but we’re building this for you so if you want the service to do something special, be sure to let us know via our survey!

So, go create a piece. Drop it to Propellerhead. Discover what others are doing. But most importantly, forget about technology and have fun!
