Record 1.5 gives you unlimited audio tracks, world-class effects and mixing gear, and a whole new take on music recording. With an intuitive, straightforward interface and a hands-on approach to capturing performances, Record 1.5 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' 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.
New in Record 1.5
Getting a vocal performance right means so much more than hitting the right notes at the right time. Sometimes you get that almost perfect performance with perfect feel and presence, but the singer might have missed a few notes. That's when Neptune can save the day. Neptune is an advanced pitch adjuster, audio transposer, and voice synth for Record 1.5.
As a pitch adjuster, Neptune will fine-tune the pitch of an audio track to help getting your vocal performances just right. Neptune will fix the flat notes with an unbelievable audio quality. You can select a root key and a scale that you want the adjuster to use, or create a scale that fits your song. And, yes, by cranking the pitch adjustment settings to the max, you can get that effect sound too.
Neptune is also a natural sounding audio transposer. This is a great help if you ever needed to change the key of a song that's already been recorded.
Perhaps the most creative-sparking function in Neptune is the voice synth. Play your MIDI keyboard and Neptune will create new harmonies from your vocal tracks in real time, or use it without the original voice to completely change the melody of the song. This gives you endless creative options.
Many musicians tend to think of music in terms like intro, verse, chorus, breakdown, buildup and so on. With the new Blocks mode in Record 1.5, your sequencer does too.
Blocks lets you sequence your songs using a more pattern-based approach, with the segments of your song as individual building blocks to be laid out in your arrangement.
Start by creating the discrete parts of your song in blocks mode. When you are ready to start building your song, just switch back to song mode and draw in what blocks should play in the dedicated pattern lane. Use one block for the verse and one for the chorus”or build your song around a single 8-bar loop.
Blocks provide a very fast way of creating a musical structure for your song. But the options don't end there. With the basic arrangement laid out, you can see the contents of the blocks and create variations and mute individual parts, or add further musical elements in song mode.
A typical use for Blocks is to create your backing track in blocks and then use the song mode sequencer to record vocals or instrumental performances. For music based around a single looped section, one repeated block with automation, and mutes of individual tracks added in song mode makes arranging a breeze.
You never have to commit to using either mode”you are free to move back and forth between Blocks and Song mode, and any changes you make in your Blocks will instantly be manifested in all instances of that Block. Need some tambourine on that chorus? Add it, and there will be tambourine whenever the chorus block is playing.
