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!

It’s Hip Hop week!

Posted May 22, 2015, 8:44 a.m.

Create a hip hop beat based on this drum loop, drop it back to Propellerhead and help your friendly neighborhood rapper by filling Discover with great beats! We’ll feature our favorites on Discover next week.

How this works:
1. Click through to the song page and open the loop in Figure, Take or Reason.
2. Build on the drum loop and turn it into an awesome Hip Hop beat.
3. Drop your beat back to Propellerhead.

 

It's no secret that Hip Hop was built on the musical foundation of soul and RnB. Want in on the secret sauce? Check out this feed of great grooves, tailor-made for sampling in your beats or just freestyle to.

Last week, we asked for your lushest, chillest, most ambient contributions, and boy did the community deliver. We made a feed of some of our favorite pieces. Take a listen, or why not sample one of these ambient works in your hip hop beat?

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!

Propellermix: "The vultures", he cried

Posted April 16, 2015, 8:02 a.m.

For this week's Propellermix, we were completely smitten with Alexis Snyder and her song '"The vultures", he cried!'. While the song is hauntingly beautiful on its own, there was something with the phrasing that just begged for a jazzy bossanova groove... We simply had no choice but to try it out! Take a listen:

 

Try it yourself! Add something to the original song and see in which direction you'll take it. Simply open it in Take or Reason on the player page and start making music. We'd love to hear what you come up with, so make sure you drop your result to Propellerhead and send us a tweet @PropellerheadSW or share your music on our Facebook page.
