Propellerhead – Reason 5 and Record 1.5

Reason 5 and Record 1.5 are here and ready for the world.
I use this since version one as my primary songwriting tool and I already ordered my upgrade…

Finally one Apple gadget I don’t have to buy

I just watched Steve’s keynote about the iPad and I am happy to announce that this is the first Apple gadget that does not trigger the “must have” effect.

Seeing the keynote I really don’t get the excitment about this thing:

  • It’s yet another device to carry around, too big to fit in a pocket and too limited to really be of any serious use.Seriously, do you’d want to write a 30 page Pages document on this thing?
  • Oh yeah I forgot: it’s an eBook reader…Wait, I’ve never seen one of those – and it comes with an eBook store – now there’s some real innovation.
  • The battery lasts for 10 hours… Yay, great. And then? You’ll have to carry some huge Mophie Juice Pack…The battery of my Sony eBook reader lasts for 1500 page turns.
  • And most of the really needed stuff is missing. I fully agree with this article.

Record – the new genius Application from Propellerheads

Record_Lead_f.png Finally the veil of silence has been lifted on the beta phase of the newest upcoming product from Propellerheads.

It’s simply called Record and it helps you to do just that – record your music as easily as possible.

It inherits the basic “modus operandi” we know from Reason (that I use extensively) and it has been great fun using it to record some songs during this beta phase.

Record will be out on September, 9th 2009 (090909 – got it ?).

What we somehow already know:

The rack, the cables and all the nifty stuff we’re used to:



The Sequencer:


The Transport:


What is new:

The big bad mixer:

Dynamics, EQ, Sends, Inserts for each channel:

Share your musical preferences

I came across another nice site that lets you publicly declare your love for certain albums and be a real fanboy for your favoured artists.

I don’t really know why I prefer this to last.fm or TheFilter but I guess that those are not really the same, are they?


Musicovery – Enlarge your musical horizon

I came across this excellent site today.

It lets you easily discover new artists.
