Integrated with Reason Essentials for the perfect music making solution

Stockholm, Sweden (July 12, 2011) –
Propellerhead Software today  unveiled Balance, its first audio interface and foray into hardware.  Integrated with Reason Essentials Software, Balance is at the heart of  Propellerhead’s complete music making solution.


Balance, a two-in by two-out audio interface for Mac and Windows, is  designed for the single person operated home/project studio. Fully USB 2  powered with separate volume controls for monitors and headphones, it  contains 8 input connections to keep all instruments, mics and devices  connected and ready to record with the press of a button—without  software pop-ups or control panels. The included Reason Essentials packs  in all the recording editing, effects, instruments and mixing tools  needed to create great sounding tracks.
“We looked at recording from our musician users’ perspective. They were  spending time concerned with issues other than music making—riddled in  installing software, managing cables, setting up control panels, setting  gain levels, tweaking recording parameters, and more. It frankly wasn’t  as easy and straightforward and it should be,” says Ernst  Nathorst-Böös, CEO. “So, we were compelled to create Balance with Reason  Essentials to let them focus on creativity and not on technology.”
Works with everyone, perfect integration with Reason and Reason Essentials
Balance’s class compliant drivers on the Mac and ASIO/WMD driver for  Windows ensure hassle free installation and compatibility with all  applications from iTunes to ProTools. Integration with Propellerhead  products goes further. Hardware buttons on Balance bring up a large  meter/tuner in Reason and can also enable “Clip Safe,” Propellerhead’s  new recording technology that with one click heals clipped recorded  audio. Musicians no longer have to worry about losing a great recording  because gain levels were too high, and can stay focused on creating that  goose bump evoking performance.
Pricing & availability
Reason Essentials with Balance audio interface will be available for  purchase worldwide on September 30, 2011 at a suggested retail price of
EUR €499 / USD $499.
Any current Reason and Record user who purchases Balance can receive the Reason 6 upgrade for free.
