Record is Dead! Long Live Record!
Yikes! I'm just getting comfortable with Thor, and Kong seems to be non-existent in my rack. (Mostly because I haven't had time to mess around with it).
As an aside, they have been coming out with something new just about every year now ever since Record 1.0 was announced. I used the Record upgrade to finally upgrade to Reason 4, then I upgraded to Reason 5 and Record 1.5 last year. Now, of course, I'll be upgrading to Reason 6.
Read on for what has changed and what is new...
The New Deal
No more. Now, Record is going away completely and all of its features are being rolled into Reason. What used to be known as the Reason/Record duo is now just Reason.
If you don't need everything in the rack, you can buy a stripped down version called Reason Essentials, which looks like a stripped down Record Mixer with a Reason 3.0 (ish) device stack. Except no Malstrom - curious - I guess it's not essential :).
What do you think of the new devices? How do you think you will use them? Anything you don't see that you wish was there?
