David Crowder Band announced a first-ever promotion with M-Audio that will be featured on the September 16 release of its sophomore sixsteps/Sparrow Records album, Illuminate. Using Propellerhead’s Reason 2.5 software (distributed by M-Audio in the U.S.) for almost all of the programming featured on the disc, David Crowder approached the company with the idea of including the software on the upcoming CD. The company responded favorably, making the band’s Illuminate the first Christian artist’s CD to include the software.

“As soon as David Crowder learns about a new piece of technology that facilitates his creative process, he turns around and shares it with others,” said Kevin Walt, head of M-Audio media and artist relations. “M-Audio strongly identifies with his enthusiasm for equipping songwriters with the means to realize their creative dreams. This collaboration between M-Audio and the David Crowder Band embodies our mutual passion for empowering the music community as a whole.”

David Crowder Band fans can sample Reason 2.5 by accessing the demo of the software featured on the Illuminate enhanced CD with their Mac or PC computer.

“We hope you like the demo of this software. It has changed the way we’ve made music in the past couple of years, and we got to thinking that you guys that are making music yourselves might just flip out about it too,” said the band. “It's just ridiculous how much you can do with it. So it's our hope that your music is inspired and empowered and that you create sounds and songs that push this whole thing forward!”

In addition to the software, the David Crowder Band placed mastered studio tracks for two songs on the album: “Revolutionary Love” and “O Praise Him (All This for a King),” the first single from the CD. Fans will not only see how the songs were recorded and mixed, but also be able to use Reason to create their own remix of the songs.

In addition to Reason software, the David Crowder Band also incorporated the producing talents of Charlie Peacock (dcTalk, Switchfoot), Mitch Watkins (Joe Ely, Abra Moore) and Zach Lind, who further played drums on the song “How Great.”
