Propellerhead has announced further advancements to its software developer kit, that make it easier to build and sell Rack Extensions for its award-winning Reason platform.
Designed for both C++ engineers and sample instrument designers, the updated SDK2 and new Instrument Development Toolkit (IDT) have all the tools necessary to develop stunning instruments and effects and bring them to market with minimum effort.
“Our goal is to create a turn-key solution for developers to build, sell and market their Rack Extensions and extend the pool of instrument makers to content developers,” remarks Timothy Self, VP Product Marketing.
Since its release in 2012, Propellerhead’s Rack Extension platform has emerged as a powerful audio plug-in format currently with over 600 companies developing and over 200 instrument and effects devices available via Propellerhead’s online store. Rack Extensions blend seamlessly in the Reason rack offering great sound, smooth workflow, rock-solid stability, intuitive routing, automation, deep-editing and flexibility Reason users expect.
Rack Extension SDK2 includes a programming interface to create custom interactive displays. The scriptable Instrument Development Toolkit allows developers build professional sample based instruments without writing C++ code and sell them directly in the Propellerhead Shop. In addition, instrument designers can quickly transfer existing Kontakt and NN-XT sound libraries into the Rack Extension instruments using the Toolkit.
Rack Extensions SDK2 is available today. The Instrument Development Toolkit is expected in May. Developers can sign-up now at Propellerhead’s website.
