Sound Technology, distributor for Propellerhead in the UK and Ireland, hosted successful Producers Conference events in London and Dublin last week.
Featuring a series of creative sessions from producers and artists, the conferences were designed to provide an insight into how Reason software is used in the hands of real-world producers.
On Monday June 12th, mix engineer Gary Bromham (Bjork, Sheryl Crow, Tina Turner) and producer/Propellerhead guru James Bernard presented an evening conference at The Sugar Club in Dublin, followed by a second conference on Saturday 16th at London's Ministry of Sound, whereby Bromham and Bernard were joined by James Wiltshire of award-winning remixers The Freemasons and producer Jarrad Rogers (Pixie Lott, Tinie Tempah, Tinchie Stryder) for an afternoon attended by almost 150 people.
Each seminar covered a range of topics, from songwriting techniques, to drum production using Reason's Kong, compression, EQ and synthesis tips, to general insights into working within the industry.
The events were timed to coincide with the release of Reason v6.5, which introduces Rack Extensions — a new technology from Propellerhead that is designed to open up the rack to third parties, enabling developers to create their own instruments and effects for Reason, as well as allowing users to expand their collection of instruments and effects with the Reason devices they want.
Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials 1.5 are available now.
