Propellerhead has launched Discover, a new music-making service that allows you to create, share, collaborate and remix with other musicians.
This free music service connects the Figure and Take mobile apps with the award-winning Reason music production software, to make it easy to exchange music pieces.
Propellerhead is also introducing Discover—feeds of inspiring community-made music ready for you to use, build on, remix and sample in your own creations.
“Our mission has always been about realizing musical dreams, and this is the next step,” said Ernst Nathorst-Böös, Propellerhead CEO. “Unlike other music-making services we’re not building this exclusively for producers. If you love to sing or play guitar, the Propellerhead community creates inspiring music pieces for you to record on. If producing is your passion, there are amazing pieces out there to pick up and build on, sample or remix. We’re launching in beta so you can try it out today and tell us how we can make it perfect for you.” More thoughts from Ernst you find at his blog: https://www.propellerheads.se/blog/crew/propellerhead-make-music-together
The new Propellerhead music-making service brings together Figure and Take apps with the award-winning Reason music production platform to bridge the gap between mobile and studio workflows:
- Move musical ideas between mobile apps and Reason—invite Take users to sing on a Figure beat, or finish a Take song with Reason’s full suite of instruments and effects
- Share music publicly, unlisted to your friends, or to your social network of choice
- Find inspiration in Discover—Propellerhead-curated, community made music pieces, all ready and available for use in your creations
Updated versions of Reason, Take and Figure that connect to the service are available today.
