FaderPRO and Beatport’s Sounds To Sample announce partnership

FaderPRO, the online/DVD mixing and production lessons that have earned acclaim for featuring hit making, Grammy-nominated producer/remixers will now offer for the first time video courses for download at Beatport’s SoundstoSample.com website.

FaderPRO / Sounds/To/Sample

Up-and-coming producer/remixers now have a smart solution to fast track the learning curve related to getting started; Sounds/To/Sample (S2S) sells chart-busting loops and sounds for music production, and FaderPRO’s multi-platinum producers (whose combined credits include Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Nelly Furtado, Lee Cabrera, Kevin Rudolf and Lil Wayne, Moloko) teach video courses on how to assemble them into hits.

Sounds/To/Sample Director Jim Stout says, “We are extremely excited to bring FaderPRO to Sounds/To/Sample. Real-world, how-to expertice offered by platinum-selling producers is what sets FaderPRO’s courses apart from the others available today, and we’re very happy to welcome them as one of our content partners.”

FaderPRO’s Vincent di Pasquale comments, “FaderPRO flattens the learning curve; most of what I learned over the years was not by reading some instruction manual, or hearing some teacher point at things on a computer screen, but by sitting in the studio and watching the best producers do what they normally do. That is exactly the experience we bring to anyone willing to learn.”

With this alliance, FaderPRO becomes S2S’ first – and only – partner for educational “How To Make Music” videos and courses, and S2S becomes FaderPRO’s exclusive source for downloadable courses.

Adds FaderPRO’s Steven Lee, “We have specifically designed FaderPRO for the millions of talented and interested artists who are starving to learn how to make music. Our angle was simple: Go into the studios of the best producers in the world and shoot a video course that shows how they make an original song from start to finish. Topping it off is the user’s ability to get hold of every element of content used in the video and learn by doing the work alongside the Pro.”

DVDs and web-streaming courses will still be available directly from FaderPRO.com

Two titles are currently available for immediate download:

  • The Art of the Remix features Vincent di Pasquale and Steven Lee remixing Nadia Ali’s “Crash and Burn.”
  • Are You Able – an Ableton Live-specific production course featuring Ivan Coraliza (a/k/a iLL Factor) as he puts a complete track together from scratch.

All future FaderPRO courses will be available for download at Sounds/To/Sample as well.

Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland, music initiative for girls

Girl Scouts Rock!

Roland and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) have recently joined forces to create Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland, a series of interactive events designed to inspire and empower girls through music.

The new initiative was launched in Los Angeles on March 19, 2011, with over 100 enthusiastic Girl Scouts and their parents in attendance. On hand to lend her support was Charlotte Caffey, lead guitarist and songwriter for the pioneering all-female band the Go-Go’s. Rising Disney star Shelby Spalione also appeared, performing with The Rockin’ Roland Girls Band. Afterward, the band members led a series of interactive sessions where the scouts played and learned about Roland instruments such as the Lucina AX-09 Synthesizer, HD-1 V-Drums® Lite, and many more.

The Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland partnership gives girls from 8-14 years of age a hands-on experience playing popular music with modern musical instruments; an important opportunity that fewer girls are receiving due to music budget cuts in schools all over the nation. The fun, interactive curriculum co-developed by Roland and GSUSA aims to get girls pumped up about making music and music education.

Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland is part of the latest Girl Scout leadership journey, It’s Your Story-Tell It!, which uses creative expression to help girls gain a better understanding of themselves and their potential. During the events, parents and troop leaders have the opportunity to participate in Better Life with Music sessions, where they can learn about the latest research and information regarding the benefits of music education in the lives of their children.

“This year will mark the 30th anniversary of Beauty and the Beat,” said Charlotte Caffey, referring to the Go-Go’s landmark 1981 debut album while speaking at the Los Angeles event. “As a female musician and songwriter and mother of a 16-year-old daughter myself, I love that the Girl Scouts and Roland have partnered to bring girls across the country access to making music.”

A second successful Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland event was held in Miami, Florida, on April 30, 2011. Additional events are scheduled for Chicago, Illinois, on May 14th and New York City, New York, on May 21st.

Propellerhead Software announces Reason Record Education

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 09, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Propellerhead has launched Reason Record Education, new packages consolidating the Reason Record application suite at a special price for schools and institutions.

Propellerhead Software Reason Record Education

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
  • Reason Record Education Ten Pack, MSRP of $1999 USD / €1679 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Single Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $129 USD / €99 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Five Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $399 USD / €345 EUR
  • Reason Record Education Ten Pack Upgrade, MSRP of $649 USD / €579 EUR
