Propellerhead Releases Instrument Development Toolkit for Rack Extensions
Sample library producers can now easily create instruments, no coding experience required
Stockholm, Sweden, August 29, 2014 – Propellerhead today announced that the new Instrument Development Toolkit (IDT) for Rack Extensions is now available, making it easy for sample library producers and instrument designers to build and sell Rack Extensions for the award-winning Reason platform. The new toolkit enables developers to create stunning instruments and bring them to market with minimum effort and maximum support.
“We created the Propellerhead Rack Extension plug-in platform to enable developers to go from initial idea to completed selling product faster and easier,” stated Mats Karlöf, Manager Third Party Developer Relations. “Now, with the Instrument Development Toolkit, it's easy to build powerful Rack Extension instruments for Reason, even without prior coding experience. The recently released A-List series and Jiggery Pokery instruments demonstrate that developers can easily create Rack Extensions that sound incredible and work flawlessly within Reason.”
Since its release in 2012, Propellerhead’s Rack Extension (RE) platform has emerged as a powerful audio plug-in format, with over 800 active developers and nearly 250 instruments and effects now available via the Propellerhead online store. Rack Extensions integrate seamlessly into the Reason rack, combining excellent sound, smooth workflows, and rock-solid stability with the intuitive routing, automation, deep editing, and flexibility that Reason users expect. Propellerhead’s online store manages all trials, sales, distribution, updates and license management of all RE’s, serving as a single point of contact for every Reason user.
The new Instrument Development Toolkit makes it possible for developers to easily build professional sample-based instruments without writing C++ code. Current Kontakt and NN-XT instrument designers can import their libraries into IDT, greatly accelerating the process of developing instruments. IDT’s vast built-in effect library, full-featured sampler engine, flexibility and powerful scripting language facilitate the creation of one-of-a-kind instruments.
The Instrument Development Toolkit is now available for download and immediate development. Developers can sign-up now at Propellerhead’s website: www.propellerheads.se/developer
