Propellerhead Software has just announced that Reason 6 will for the first time be publicly previewed on September 3 and 4 at Producer Sessions Live 2011, to be held at SAE London. Following up on the sold-out success of the previous year, Producer Sessions Live 2011 is an annual event that brings together some of the biggest names in music production, to provide intimate tutorial sessions and master classes for aspiring young musicians and producers. SAE London is the UK’s top school for sound and production engineers, and it wil definitely be a great privilege to attend the event and check out the state of the art facilities and equipment of the school for yourself. A day ticket only costs £10, while entry to each Producer Session costs £5. Definitely a great bargain. This is also a rare opportunity to get your hands wet in a hi-tech recording studio environment with some very successful names in the business. Some of the confirmed names include Mark Hill/Artful Dodger, Stonebridge, Kid Massive, Nicky Romero, Nu:Tone, Steve Mac, Dave Spoon, and others. The whole event will use five whole floors, and a total of twenty rooms, of the SAE London building.
The Swedish producer Mattias Häggström Gerdt will be the one in charge of showing off Reason 6 to an excited audience throughout the weekend. Mattias has been awarded for his accomplishments in the computer game music scene, and is a well-known composer, multi-instrumentalist, and Propellerhead product specialist. He has contributed scores to several computer games, such as “Cobalt” and “Scrolls”, with tracks made exclusively with Reason. You’ll also hear his music in the introduction and tutorial videos released by Propellerhead for the past Reason releases.
As has been mentioned in the other pre-release news, one of the main highlights about Reason 6 will be its powerful combination of the features of Record with Reason, namely audio recording and editing, making it a more complete all-in-one solution to music production. Perhaps there will also be significant demonstrations of the new effects like the Pulveriser and the Alligator, as well as any significant tweaks to the old ones.
There will also be an unveiling of the audio interface in Reason 6 called “Balance”, which works as a 2-in-2-out unit. It is an interface that is tightly integrated with Reason, as you will immediately experience with the innovative Clip Safe function, which records the same input on two channels, one of them at a lower volume, so you have a backup in case one of them “clips”, a magical lifeline for distorted takes. The interface is very sleek and user-friendly as well, as we have come to expect from Propellerhead Software, and their emphasis on the musician’s experience.
Reason 6 will be explained along with Balance at Level 5, Room 4 of the SAE London venue. For more information about the venue, as well as how to book tickets, click here.
