Rap to this

Posted May 29, 2015, 12:54 p.m.

This week, we want to hear your rhymes and your flow as we serve up a selection of beats to rap to. NYC based producer/engineer Mike Kuz dropped a beat to Propellerhead. Now let’s hear what you can do with it–open it up in Take or Reason and rap to this!

 

We asked the beatmakers last week to serve up some fresh beats for your rapper friends and the response was great! We made a feed with some of our favorites, so let’s hear what they sound like with your vocals on top!

It's all about you

Posted May 27, 2015, 10:13 a.m.

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!

Have fun!

Space out with Propellerhead

Are you up for taking it down a notch? Zone out this weekend with droning pads, low tempo and relaxing sounds in our ambient challenge! Join the music making by dropping a song to Propellerhead and include #ambient in the song title. We will feature our favorite entries next week!

Make music with Threv

Threv, an electronica producer from Miami, recently dropped his ambient piece Clear Air on Rylos to Propellerhead. It inspired many of us at PropellerHQ to add something to it. Maybe it’ll inspire you too? Take this track further by adding your own ideas!

All that's missing is your voice

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!
