Propellerhead Software today released for sale worldwide Record, its new recording software that aims to put the musician in focus. Record, software for both Mac and Windows, combines "effortless recording" and a "stunning software mixer console" with a "limitless rack of audio processing gear that builds itself or can be infinitely customized". Over 50,000 users tested Record during its beta test period, which began in May.
"We figured it was time that someone took a fresh look at recording from a musician's perspective. Not needing to bolt music features onto an aging audio application, we truly started from scratch with full knowledge of today's computer architectures and capabilities. Record is the result," says Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO. "In short we wanted to do what we've always done—help people make more and better music."
Propellerhead Software says that Record "has the feel of a million dollar recording studio with the streamlined simplicity of a tape deck". For guitar players, the built-in virtual POD from Line 6 brings a wide range of guitar amps and cabinets. Record's software mixer's sound is faithfully modeled after the renowned SSL 9000K hardware with flexible routing, full dynamics, EQ, advanced effects handling and complete automation. With its dynamic multicore audio handling, Record uses a computer's processing power to its fullest.
Seamless integration with Reason
Owners of Propellerhead Software's Reason have seamless integration in Record with their Reason instruments and devices. Not only will Record open Reason files directly, if Reason is installed and registered, all Reason devices appear in Record's rack without plugging-in or launching a second application. For Reason owners, Propellerhead offers a special sidegrade called Record for Reason Owners that provides a complete copy of Record and updates any version of Reason to work with Record. For new users who want to buy both together, Propellerhead offers Record + Reason Duo, a bundle of both programs in a single package.
