Record 1.5 Education 10-User Pack is a specially priced package of Record—Propellerhead Software's new recording software—for schools and institutions.

With an intuitive, straightforward interface and a hands-on approach to capturing performances, Record was designed for musicians—not audio engineers. This is recording done right.
Highlights in Record 1.5
Record 1.5's studio simulation metaphor allows students to configure (and reconfigure) a complete sound studio, selecting and wiring audio processors and generators, while its large format console model provides a rare chance for students to prepare for work in large, professional studios.
The flexible environment lets students experiment with signal path and internal routing, customize their sound experiences, and "break the rules"—in Record all connections are allowed.
Record provides a complete set of effects, including mastering tools, so students can practice difficult setups like multiband and parallel compression and mid/side processing.
Record integrates perfectly with Reason, and upgrades Reason to the latest version.
Recording music is all about seizing the moment. Capturing a perfect performance—or even nailing that idea before it goes away—requires tools that are ready when you are. Record is always ready. Created with musicians in mind, Record lets you create record ready channels in an instant, minimizing the steps between idea and actual recording. The result equals more music—and less dialog boxes. Simply plug in, breathe out, and you're ready to go.
All the instruments, processors, and effect units used in a song are housed inside Record's customizable rack. Any device created is automatically and logically patched into the rack, but if you're feeling adventurous or need to do some routing of your own, just flip your entire Record rack over and all the cables are all yours.
Your Record rack can be stacked with an infinite number of reverbs, distortion units, delays, dynamic processors, mastering EQs—everything you need to shape and color your sounds. Click and drag effects straight to the rack, or load any of the expertly crafted patches.
To help you arrange your tracks in a smooth, effortless way, Record comes with a fast and flexible sequencer. Immediate and intuitive, Record's sequencer puts you in control of your arrangements, letting you move and edit parts as you go along.
Record's sequencer also takes care of your MIDI performances, for use with the built-in ID-8 instrument or for controlling Reason instrument and devices when Record is paired with Reason. Every thinkable knob, button, or fader can be automated with ease, and then edited and fine-tuned in the sequencer.
Finally, all your sounds will end up in Record's main mixer. This mixing console's sound and signal processing was faithfully modeled after* the legendary SSL 9000k analog mixing desk. Flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, advanced effects handling, full automation and a 64-bit mix bus gives you that big studio sound right out of your computer. And yes, you do get that master-bus compression.
For guitar and bass players, Record comes installed with separate guitar and bass POD units from amp and cab simulation experts Line 6. With bass and guitar amplifiers available for every single track in your Record project, you are never short of interesting tones and timbres. As the Line 6 amplifiers are insert effects and don't affect the original instrument signal, you are free to change your amplifier and cabinet settings at any point in time—even after laying down your track.
To help you complement your recorded material, Record also comes with multi instrument ID8—a songwriter's toolbox. ID8 ships with a wide palette of sounds useful for building a steady foundation for your tracks, like pianos, drums, bass, strings, and more.
As a perfect performance may be less than perfect from scratch, Record features a swift and easy-to-use comp editor. Building the ultimate vocal track is as simple as selecting the parts that work and muting the ones that don't. Exit the comp editor and listen to the results; a perfect take containing only the good parts.
Record has a unique twist on the concept of time and tempo. Record's realtime time stretch lets you play now and pick the tempo later; change the song tempo and all your audio tracks will follow right along without any need for pre-processing of any kind. Need to slow your song down to nail a tricky passage? No problem. Just reduce the tempo, record your performance, and bring the tempo back up. The audio quality? Amazing.
About Record 10-User Pack for Schools and Institutions
In the classroom, Record has many distinct advantages over other music software programs, allowing students to focus on music creation and production, not system maintenance and software incompatibilities. Students can freely experiment and find solutions to audio problems while maintaining creative flow during music production, invariably spending more time on their projects and assignments.
The Record Education 10-User Pack contains a Record network multi-license and installation DVD for Mac and Windows—to be run standalone, or as an upgrade for a Reason 5-pack to Record Reason Duo.
Install Record on as many computers as you like. Connect your Ignition Key to the USB port on a server or a computer on your network and Record's clever multi-license system will allow students to use Record or Record + Reason on any computer on the network until the license limit is reached.
The Education 5-Pack works with any Propellerhead Ignition Key, sold separately as part of any Record single user package including Record Education Single User Pack and the Student & Teacher Version of Record Reason Duo. The license allows five computers on a network to run Record simultaneously, and multiple packages can be combined for more licenses on a single key.
