Dennis from Ableton goes over a few of the key features within their new DAW and performance controller, Ableton Push.
Atlanta’s own Tech Beats gives us a live demo using Ableton Push.
“Push is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. With hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips – and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop. 64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop – all at the same time.”
Introduction to the A-Series Modular Synth Rack Extensions for Reason
The A-Series Modular Synth is the first fully modular synth for Reason, where you can design your synths however you want for whatever sound you can imagine. And because all the modules are mix-and-match, all those Reason effects and devices that you already have can go right inside your custom synth.
Brandon from Roland walks us through Cakewalk Sonar X2 and its ability for multitouch mixing on touch screens.
Cakewalk marcomm pitch:
From getting a great tone to releasing the final mix, today’s musicians must master every element of the music production process. SONAR X2 is there every step of the way and takes each element to the next level of power and usability. And thanks to the revolutionary Skylight user interface, SONAR X2 lets you move seamlessly among the elements, instantly going from recording to editing to mixing and back again. And do it all with a single Smart Tool. It’s genius.
Propellerhead Software has announced updates to its Reason and Reason Essentials music production software.
Reason 6.5.3 and Reason Essentials 1.5.3 fix a few serious bugs, the most important being a problem where the program could crash under Mac OS X 10.8. These new versions replaces versions 6.5 and 1.5 of Reason and Reason Essentials. It is recommended that you update as soon as is convenient.
Changes in Reason / Reason Essentials
- Fixed a problem related to scrollbars under Mac OS 10.8, where the program could crash.
- Fixed a Create Menu bug, where sometimes the wrong device would be created.
- Fixed a bug in how the Browser uses the registry under Windows. This could lead to situations where some file types couldn’t be browsed and loaded.
- The Download All function for Rack Extensions could cause the Authorizer to misbehave or fail.
The updates are now available to download.
