Record! May saw Reason-maker Propellerhead finally release a full DAW - a product which would combine the ‘virtual rack’ of Reason with audio recording and editing capabilities, all routed through an emulation of an SSL desk.
Propellerhead’s Record was possibly the biggest new product of the year and, after being released in September, it’s going strong. MusicRadar was there when it all started and filmed this video of launch day featuring interviews with the Props and more.
Artist-wise, May was the month that Michael Jackson postponed his planned London O2 gigs, further fuelling speculation as to the state of the King Of Pop’s health.
Another gigantic ‘80s pop act was also in the news: Queen announced they were parting ways with Free and Bad Company singer Paul Rogers after a long-term collaboration spanning four years.
