Propellerheads started back in 1994 when they first launched ReCyle- the wunder app that allowed beat-slicing for the first time when to do so inside your sampler was something only the keenest programmer would attempt. Spawing the birth of the REX file it catapulted them to software superstardom, but not at much as ReBirth - the software TB303 emulation did. I was lucky enough to spend some quality time in a leafy enclave at the NAMM show with Propellerheads Software CEO and co-founder Ernst Nathorst-Böös, where I got to ask him a few questions.

Ernst is a class act. One of the nicest guys in the industry. I can't wait to see what the Props do next.

Good point Flanders, it wasnt really explicit on the future, but he did say Reason has a long way to go before it becomes to unwieldy ?

I guess that was it

I haven't used Reason since Reaktor 5 was released.

Ernst is very cool indeed but the truth is that Reason hasn't progress as almost every other software or DAW did in the music market!

10 years pass since its birth and still hasn't audio recording or VST support!

Reason's effects are almost basic if not a joke compare to what is out today!

Recycle hasn't change also and I think its one of the few reason that Reason is slowly dying! Refusing to add wav manipulation inside Reason is quite suicidal!

Ha ha… the best part of the interview 1:39 “but recycle is discontinued now…� Ernst: No, No… its still holding on� . Ha ha… very funny!! People are don’t give a dime about recycle & Propellerheads are still proud for it!

I mean so many sequencers are providing basic loop slicing as standard, while others surpass recycle! Who needs recycle???
