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.

UpRock Audio's filled to the brim with talented artists, but they can't all fit in the studio at the same time. To pass time, Devin Wright recorded an acoustic version of his song 'Tidal Waves', scaling down a bombastic pop production to an intimate singer/songwriter piece. If you ever want to treat your fans to something special, sharing is the way to go. Take Creative Vocal Recorder allows you to share little sketches, previews and much more to the world. And it really does sound great. Take a listen to 'Tidal Waves' below:

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:

When UpRock Audio started using Take with their artists, Chelsea Hughes recorded a demo of her song 'Skin & Bones' that simply took our breath away. Chelsea sings her heart out, accompanied by guitar, and with her unique voice it's hard not get drawn in.
Take is perfect to record a song like this and quickly get it online. Share the song with your friends or fans, use it as a demo for the studio or just record for your own sake. Chelsea went on to record 'Skin & Bones' in the UpRock studio too - and to be honest we're still not quite sure which version we prefer...

Singer/songwriter Zanko is both a skilled guitarist and vocalist. This combination always seems to result in beautiful, heartfelt music and Zanko's no exception. When we asked our friends at UpRock Audio to try out the free Take Creative Vocal Recorder app with the artists at their studio for a week, Zanko seemed like the perfect match!
In the song 'Eileen' off Zanko's EP 'The Story & The Change', there is a healthy dose of dexterous guitar plucking and beautiful singing. However, there are also vocal harmonies. As a solo artist, it's not the easiest task to sing harmonies with yourself for practice, but it's something you need to do before a recording session or a gig. With Take it's much easier. Zanko recorded his vocals on one track, guitar on a second track and then worked on the harmonies in the chorus. Perfect for practice when you're on the go!
Take a listen to the result below!
