It's Propellermix time, people! This week we're highlighting a remix made by Reason Product Manager Ludvig.
We asked Ludvig about his remix and how he approached it:
"This started when I heard Ryan's "I Don't Know - Produced", which was based on "I Don't Know" by aarongrider. I thought the acoustic guitar intro would work fine in a higher tempo, so I made a 120bpm guitar hook loop out of it. At the same time I happened to hear "What's going on?" by beat86, which had some really nice vocals. It sounded as if these two pieces could fit together somehow, although both tempo and key were different... Some tempo and pitch matching was done in Reason, after which I started adding bass, drums and other niceties, using the Factory Sound Bank, Disco School and Soul School. The disco guitar in the chorus section is actually the same acoustic loop as in the intro, but run through a Softube Amp and an Alligator!"
Want to add vocals, an instrument or re-arrange the Propellermix? Just open it in Take or Reason to add your own part. And if you want to try your hand at remixing the original yourself—simply open it in Take or Reason and start making music. We'd love to hear what you come up with so make sure you send us a tweet @PropellerheadSW or share your music on our Facebook page.
We’re happy to announce the release of new versions of Figure, Take and Reason!
Never sing a flat note with Take. The new “Voice Tune” helps you stay in tune, or gives you that modern R’n’B sound when turned all the way up. Clean up, distort or color your recordings with effects on each channel, give your tracks a “final mix” sound with mastering presets, and sing in a key that works for you with transposable backing tracks.
Download Take on the App Store (free!)
Figure, the fast and fun beat making app for iOS is now free! Also: Make a beat in Figure and open it in Take—the key of your Figure song is automatically brought over to Take, so Voice Tune gives you great results instantly.

Reason gets a bunch of new stuff, too, based on all the feedback we’re getting from you. Reason 8.2 features a slick new auto-update system so you're always using the most current version, without the hassle of bulky manual installs. You’ll also get Improved patch navigation with Revert Browse, extended Remote support for Redrum, more colors for tracks, channels and clips, and tons of other improvements. It’s a free download for owners of Reason 8, of course.
