Propellerhead Software announces Reason 5 and Record 1.5

Propellerhead Software Reason 5 / Record 1.5

Propellerhead Software has announced it has started beta testing for Reason 5 and Record 1.5, the company’s biggest overhaul to its Record – Reason application family so far, introducing new instruments, effects, sequencing and more for composing, beatmaking, loop-mangling, vocal treatment, songwriting and music production.

The new Kong Drum Designer and Dr.OctoRex loop player extend Reason’s instrument arsenal to help you get phenomenal sounding rhythms, drums tracks and beats. Reason 5 and Record 1.5 add a whole new take on sequencing: Blocks—build your songs parts like patterns and string them together for super fast arranging. Neptune, a pitch correction tool and amazing voice synthesizer, turns your less than perfect performance into a great one in no time. Simply play your new harmonies on your MIDI keyboard for instant backing vocals. Live sampling into all sample capable devices means you can work with samples in a new and playful manner and re-explore the lost art of creative sampling. Sci-fi grade multi core optimization, the practical on-screen keyboard and an expanded Factory Sound Bank are just the icing on the cake.

Reason Record Duo feature highlights

  • Introducing Kong Drum Designer (Reason) — Load, sculpt, build and tweak your sounds with your choice of drum synthesis, sampling, REX loops, physical modeling and custom-made effect modules for percussion on Kong’s 16 pads.
  • Dr.REX octuples into DrOctoRex Loop Player (Reason) — No matter how you use it—as a pattern sequencer for loops, or to completely mangle your REX’ed audio – it is guaranteed to inspire.
  • New Neptune Pitch Adjuster and Voice Synth Device (Record) — Super flexible high-quality processor to correct and shift pitches, create backing harmonies, formant shift or take your vocals into outer space.
  • Block based pattern sequencing mode makes song creation fast and flexible (Both) — Go from pattern-based arrangements to linear—to patterns again. Take your music beyond the eight bar loop.
  • Live sampling is back! In the rack! (Reason) — Re-explore the lost art (and fun) of sampling. Every sample player becomes a sampler; record with a single click — further tweak with the built-in editor.
  • A number of other additions that guarantee to make your music making more fun — Multi-core optimization, on-screen keyboard and expanded Factory Sound Bank, many more too numerous to name.

The release for all programs is targeted for later summer 2010. Upgrades will be handled by local distributors once new version become available. All prices remain the same, except for Reason for Record Owners, which will increase by 20 EUR / $20 USD.

  • Record for Reason Owners Sidegrade (includes Reason 5 upgrade): EUR 149 EUR / $169 USD
  • Reason 5 Upgrade from any version: 99 EUR / $129 USD
  • Record 1.5 Upgrade from any version: free download
  • Record Reason Duo: 405 EUR / $449 USD
  • Reason: 305 EUR / $349 USD
  • Record: 279 EUR / $299 USD

Note: Anyone who purchases Reason, Record, the Duo or Record for Reason Owners today will get an upgrade to the new versions free of charge.

Beyond a nice collection of percussion sounds Cinematique Instruments features also strange and rare keyboard instruments such as the low-price, garbage Super-Sound EK-470 e-piano, the charming organ with its electric fan which blows air across reeds or the organic and warm Zeitter & Winkelmann Piano.
But there are also special sound paks called Glass, Metallic Objects, Experimental Box and Downbeat Box. These sound paks are an amazing source of individual und inspriring textures, pads, mallets and percussions instruments.They beat and knocked doors and sideboards of a metallic kitchen with timpani mallets, brushes, sticks, fingers and fists, they tapped with fingers and timpani mallets against lids, rubbed around the glass rim and they assembled instruments from unique sounds such as stationannouncements, trains, paper crumpling, acoustic and electronic noise, station hum, underground railway noise, pneumatic doors, crown cap shaking, glitches, noise, hiss, hum and other weirdness.

Cinematique Instrument´s goal and ultimate ambition is to inspire everyone by using its highly playable and unique instruments providing a lot of opportunities for your music production.
