Musicians Institute, the College of Contemporary Music in Hollywood, CA, has partnered with renowned software company Propellerhead to feature the Reason digital audio workstation (DAW) as a major part of MI’s curriculum beginning in Fall 2014.

Reason-focused courses at Musicians Institute
MI’s new Reason-focused courses will be required for all students in Performance Programs for Bass, Drums, Guitar, Keyboard Technology and Vocals.

As part of the school’s blended learning initiative, which pairs classroom instruction with digital delivery of multimedia content, MI will install Reason in a variety of computer lab workstations across campus. Students will also have access to special discounts that allow them to purchase Reason for their own personal use. The partnership will ensure that MI has continual access to the latest Reason upgrades, and will enable Propellerhead to incorporate feedback on how their software is used by MI faculty and students.

“In today’s music industry, musicians are expected to be proficient in both the recording and performance fields,” said Donny Gruendler, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Musicians Institute. “MI is dedicated to providing our students with the tools they need to stay on the cutting edge of contemporary music, and Reason is the perfect program to do just that. We’re excited to partner with Propellerhead, a company that shares our mission to provide an innovative and well-rounded music education.”

“Musicians around the world choose Reason software because it offers a powerful tool set, inspiring workflow, and endless creative possibilities,” said Gerry Bassermann, Director of North American Sales at Propellerhead. “We’re thrilled to partner with Musicians Institute to make Reason a key part of their academic curriculum. We look forward to sharing in the development of the next generation of music artists.”

Reason audio production software offers guitarists, bassists, drummers and other musicians all the tools and instruments they need to turn ideas into music. With an intuitive visual workflow that accelerates the creative process, Reason makes it easy to record and mix great-sounding tracks. An expandable rack of instruments, samplers, drum machines, effects modules, and guitar processors provides an endless array of inspiring sounds.

Rack Extension

Propellerhead has announced that the Rack Extension plug-in platform is continuing to rapidly expand, with over 230 Rack Extensions now available for Reason 7.1.

The online Rack Extension store now includes a broad selection of virtual instruments, effects, and audio utilities that blend seamlessly in the Reason rack, offering musicians great sound, smooth workflow, and rock-solid stability.

Additionally, to help customers and developers understand what is involved in creating Rack Extensions, Propellerhead has released an interview with Rob Papen, the acclaimed software designer behind the some of the highest-selling Rack Extension instruments.

“Thanks to participation from the industry’s leading software developers, and an overwhelmingly positive response from Reason customers, the Rack Extension platform is expanding faster than we ever anticipated,” stated Timothy Self, Propellerhead VP of Product Marketing. “By offering developers a turnkey solution for building, marketing, and selling Rack Extensions, we’re helping them to reach the vast Reason user community—while simultaneously giving Reason customers access to more inspiring instruments and effects so they can take their music even further.”

Veteran software designer Rob Papen was one of the first developers to embrace the Rack Extension platform, and his products like Predator-RE, SubBoomBass-RE and others rank among the best-selling and highest-rated in the Propellerhead online store. “The Rack Extension platform significantly expands our potential customer base,” said Papen. “The Propellerhead user community is very large and it’s exciting to make Rob Papen soft synths and effects available right inside the Reason rack.

“Developing Rack Extensions saves us lots of time since Propellerhead handles the marketing support, sales, and distribution. Since the Rack Extensions we create work across Mac and PC, we just have to create one version of the software and Propellerhead makes it available on both operating systems. We don’t have to worry about incompatibilities and differences between hosts. Plus, the Rack Extensions we create are forward-compatible with future versions of Reason, which lowers the burden on our development team.”

Rob Papen plans on continuing to develop innovative sonic tools for the Rack Extension platform. “The new Rack Extension platform offers Reason users a huge advantage,” he concluded. “The consistent workflow, seamless operation, and legendary ease of use open up a whole new world of possibilities. Everything fits together, making the rack more than the sum of its parts. I’m intrigued by the challenge of creating something new especially for Reason—something that will grow in Reason in its own way.”
