Ever notice that conspicuous green glow radiating off of Deadmau5's desk during his Twitch streams? There's a reason for that. It turns out the artist has been working with Razer to help launch a new music service -- one tailored specifically to promote and educate artists that use the company's gaming hardware for music production. It's called Razer Music, and it launches today.
Razer describes the Razer Music as a digital content platform for musicians -- a community portal teeming with video tutorials, detailed articles and production tips from well-known musicians who have made a habit of using the Razer Blade gaming laptop to create their work. It's more of a resource for budding musicians than consumer-facing service. At launch, the site will host content from Deadmau5, Metro Boomin, Feed Me, Dyro and others, with updates from Project 46, Carnage and other artists coming in the near future.
It doesn't seem like you'll need to be a Razer customer to take advantage of the company's new music portal, but if you are, there's a bonus: anyone who owns a 2015 Razer Blade laptop will be given a licence of Image-Line's FL STudio Producer Edition music production software for free. Not a bad bonus, as far as pack-in software is concerned. The rest of us will have to be content with the site's core offering of music production education, show and tour dates for featured artists and downloadable sample tracks. Check out Razer Music at the source link below for more details.
