Propellerhead Discover is the central feed for your new musical ideas. Working with material from Discover in Reason happens with a single click and tempo information for ideas is preserved all along the way, making it easy to get going quickly adding your own production and music to the process. However, sometimes the greatest song ideas captured in Take might have been recorded by singers without a steady tempo or backing beat but that shouldn’t stop us from being able to use them in Reason. In this tutorial, Ryan shows us the basics of finding inspiration from Discover but also an advanced technique for tempo mapping and fitting freely recorded material to a fixed tempo grid ready for Reason production.

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.
Highlighting new interactive graphic capabilities of the SDK2 technology, Synchronous is a Rack Extension plug-in for Reason that offers rhythmically synced effects that bring your music to life.
With a dynamic and intuitive graphic user interface and the ability to instantly recall over 100 patches, Synchronous is incredibly flexible.
With the built-in waveform tools, users can easily draw and dial in Distortion, Filter, Reverb, Delay and level for anything from side-chain pumping and tremolos to beat-repeating and tweaked out wobbles.
Reason 7.1 is a free downloadable update for all Reason 7 owners. Existing Reason upgrade pricing remain the same at $129 USD / 129 EUR. Synchronous is available for free for all Reason 7.1 customers up until June 30th, 2014.
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.

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.
