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.

Phoenix Studio is coming to Android and iOS

March 29, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

Phoenix Studio is coming to Android and iOS. Three monosynths, a drum machine, a mixer and some effects – what else do you really need? Oh yeah, a sequencer, so you can put it all together! And all this is what PhoenixStudio is!

Below is a text from Android Mobile on the topic:

This is a great new addition to the Android music making applications if you are interested in the more acid / synthesizer aspect of music making, but can of course be used for more than acid type of sounds. It comes with three Synthesizers and one Drum track with the possibility to sequence and comes with some effects plus the possibility to record changes on the fly.
It is the same amount tracks, sound modules and being 303’ish in the sounds it creates it could be compared to Mikrosonics RD4. The biggest difference is that RD4 is much easier to use as a Groovebox ( if not the easiest to use Groovebox ) and RD4 comes with more effects, more possibilites and full midi integration but…
Have not used PhoenixStudio much but my impression is it seems to have much clearer and better sound, making it interesting for people that would like something similar to RD4 but are more interested in the sound and less in the Groovebox aspect.
