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!

All that's missing is your voice
M1KE213 dropped his fantastic song KCompany with a simple request: that you would sing to it. Add your vocal hook to this beat and make Mike's day!

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

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.

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.

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.
