If you own Propellerhead's Reason, you're familiar with how it makes your music production workflow a smooth and easy process. This special offer for Reason users, allows you to add another Propellerhead product, Record, to your music creation arsenal at a deeply discounted price. Created with musicians in mind, the recording 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. Record is always ready. It gives 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 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 audio tracks in a smooth, effortless way, the recording 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.
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 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, 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, Propellerhead 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.
This recording software 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.

This product makes recording a breeze! If you know how to use Reason, or even if you don't, Recod takes the technical aspects of recording out of the way so musicians can record, guitar, drums, vocals and insturments. Really simple and fun, this is a must have for your home studio. Also very stable!
As a long-time Cubase and Propellerhead Reason user, I was very interested in checking out Record. What a great product! The integration of Reason and Record is seamless. The features extensive and simple to use. The app has a very short latency and I can use the included POD guitar effects in real-time. I'm running the Mac version and it has been rock solid. I asked them to develop something like this in user feedback several years ago and am very happy with the result. Well done, Propellerhead!
Runs solid as a rock on my 64bit windows 7 machine. Propellerhead has a way of making complex programs that let you make music without the software getting in the way. If you are considering Record, go to their website and check out the demo and video tutorials. I'm lovin it.
