Propellerhead Software (booth #6704) and Digidesign (booth #6606, Hall A) announced today a strategic relationship that will result in the development of ReWire2 for Digidesign Pro Tools systems. ReWire is a cross-application technology to transfer both MIDI and audio seamlessly between Propellerheads' Reason and ReBirth applications and Pro Tools.

When a connection is established, all Reason sampler, synth, drum machine and Dr Rex outputs are connected automatically to Pro Tools; the user can then apply the mixer facilities and effects in Pro Tools to those outputs or record them onto hard disk tracks. ReWire is also a virtual bi-directional MIDI cable that seamlessly links devices in Reason to Pro Tools. Recording and playback is as integrated as any plug-in architecture by selecting a ReWire 2 device such as a Reason synth from an output list.

"Digidesign is excited to work with Propellerheads to deliver close integration between Pro Tools and ReWire (which brings us integration with the Propellerheads flagship application Reason). Our customers have given us a tremendous amount of feedback that suggests that this feature set will be widely used and enjoyed by our growing population of creative, music and MIDI-oriented users," said Dave Lebolt, general manager of Digidesign.

According to Ernst Nathorst-Böös, managing director of Propellerhead Software, "This option has been more of the most requested features by our user base so we are very excited to announce it."
