Overview

Propellerhead Record software lets you create record-ready channels in an instant, minimizing the steps between idea and actual recording. Since 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. This music recording software is always ready, giving you more time for playing music and less time having to deal with 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 the recording software'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, Propellerhead's music software 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.

Propellerhead Record's sequencer also takes care of your MIDI performances, for use with the build 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 Propellerhead Record's main audio 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, the recording software comes installed with separate guitar and bass POD units from amp- and cab-simulation experts Line 6, Inc. 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. Additional models can be added to the virtual POD units by connecting a Line 6 interface, including POD Studio, POD X3, and more, to your computer.

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 real-time 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.

Too little, too late

By Jeff Kline

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Propellerhead Record 1.5 Software:

I appreciate the attempt Propellerhead, but there are many issues I have with Record and I'm super bummed. 1. Sonically it doesn't sound nearly as good as it should. Garageband sounds better. After testing it with my buddy, we were both shocked. 2. You say it's simple, yet it's 3 screens and includes an SSL9000 console? It's incredibly overwhelming. Isn't simple Garageband, which comes free with the Mac? Mixed messages being sent out. 3. Logic and Ableton have already come up with the standard. This is just too late for me to give up my VST plugins that I spent thousands on! NO VST plugin capability and 1/50th the features that Logic has? 4. The whole idea of getting things down quickly? Come on! Other DAWs aren't that complicated. Logic and Protools are simple now and I'm seeing more and more even "older" musicians picking up MBoxs. Quick ideas have already been addressed by Protools, Logic, and Garageband! I like Reason. But, Logic, Protools, Ableton, and even Garageband are way ahead of you in the DAW category. Simple recordings/ideas are done through Garageband. The next step/Professionals use Logic, Protools, and Ableton.

Does What It Claims and No More.

By MJ Masters

from Houston, TX

Comments about Propellerhead Record 1.5 Software:

Propellerhead Software hit this one out of the park. Record is not a DAW by standard definition, although it does have some similarities. If you are looking for a system like Protools, Cubase, Logic or Sonar, then this may not be for you. If you are looking for the best virtual recording studio with an SSL based mixing console, great rack effects and Line6 based virtual pod/bass pod, then this is what you need. Record competes on every level with other DAWs on the market with one exception, no third party plugins. So RTAS, Audio Suite, AU and VST users beware. On the other hand this makes the program very light and extremely CPU friendly. All in all it's one of the best recording options out there and it's priced better than a stand alone port-a-studio. Plus Reason users get to interface Record and Reason together. Well done Propellerhead.

Good for it's purpose

By Marc The Prof

from Somewherein, TN

Comments about Propellerhead Record 1.5 Software:

I picked up Record because I heard so many good things about Reason. I selected Record over Reason because I needed a tool that I could do midi and audio. Record works as expected and is more intuitive to me than other programs I've used (Sonar, ProTools, Live, Cubase, etc). From day one, I was able to lay down ideas without focusing too much on the technical sides of it. Record's interface seems to work better using multiple monitors. I use two so that I can have the Rack and Sequencer up at the same time. I don't mess with the mixer until I have the idea sketched out. I believe people's view of Record will depend on what they are used to using. Record doesn't add anything to what's already on the market. However, it doesn't take anything away either. It is what it is, a midi and audio recording program. Nothing more, nothing less. I was skeptical about it's lack of vst support, but I have other software for that. While adding a step to the process, I can easily compose a track in another program and bring it into Record. However, I don't see the need.

If You are a Dedicated Reason User....

By Reg Young

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Propellerhead Record 1.5 Software:

This will turn your Propellerhead setup into a full DAW. It works very well, doesn't take up a whole lot of CPU space, and has unlimited tracks, something that Pro-Tools doesn't have...not like you'll need unlimited tracks, but hey. The learning curve for the mixing board layout is a little steep, but once you get it down you'll be ahead of the game. Keep in mind that mixing works the same way, regardless of what you're using. Sometimes it's better to learn something difficult first. That said, I have FL Studio, Pro-Tools M-Powered 8, and this (along with Reason 4). I probably won't need to get anything else for a while!

Long Over Due

By Classick

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Propellerhead Record 1.5 Software:

I've used Reason since 2.0 and truly thought this day would never come. I was told by many that Propellerhead would never give you the ability to record audio and midi in the same interface. How wrong they were. If you've used Reason from day one then you know how valuable this Record software really is. I start my creative projects with Reason, now Record allows me to take it to the next level and beyond. The seamless intergration with Reason 4.0 makes it even easier to get your creative juices flowing. Those of us who've used Reason since the beginning truly know that this is Long Over Due!
