Propellerhead has launched Reason Record Education, new packages consolidating the Reason Record application suite at a special price for schools and institutions.
Available in license packs of 1, 5 and 10, Reason Record Education pairs the world-renowned, award-winning music production environment Reason with Record, the recording software for musicians.
In the classroom, the Reason and Record combination has many distinct advantages over other music software programs, allowing students to focus on music creation and production, not system maintenance and software incompatibilities. Students can freely experiment and find solutions to audio problems while maintaining creative flow during music production, invariably spending more time on their projects and assignments.
Reason and Record’s studio simulation metaphor allows students to configure (and reconfigure) a complete sound studio, selecting and wiring audio processors and generators, while the large format console model provides a rare chance for students to prepare for work in large, professional studios.
Propellerhead’s network multilicense system lets schools install the Reason and Record on as many computers as they like. With an Ignition Key connected to the USB port on a server or a computer on the network, the system will allow students launch the software on any computer on the network until the license limit is reached.
Reason Record Education is available for sale worldwide today from authorized Propellerhead resellers. Upgrades to Reason Record Education for Reason version 1–4 are also available at attractive prices for schools and institutions.
- Reason Record Education Single Pack, MSRP of $299 USD / €249 EUR
- Reason Record Education Five Pack, MSRP of $1199 USD / €999 EUR
