Razer has announced Razer Music, which isn’t quite what people would expect from that kind of name. Music streaming is a big deal these days, but the gaming hardware maker is taking a completely different approach to the music game.
Razer Music happens to be a portal for music producers to share what they know about making music. These producers and musicians will share articles, downloads, and video tutorials on getting started with music. Interestingly, the downloads include samples from the participating artists for anyone to use. Razer says that this was done because an increasing number of artists are using its Razer Blade for mixing music, and it wants to cater to this category of users as well.
Among the names contributing to Razer Music are Deadmau5, Carnage, Metro Boom, and Dyro. Admittedly, none of these artists have contributed any articles yet; and only Metro Boom has provided samples at the moment. That being said, the how-to articles are already being rolled out.
There is more to the story for aspiring music producers. Razer has entered into a partnership with Image-Line to provide FL Studio Producer Edition with every purchase of the Razer Blade 2015. This offer is also being extended to all owners of the Razer Blade 2015, and these individuals can download it from the Razer Music site.
This is a very niche group that Razer is catering to, and it will be interesting to see what comes out of it. Razer Music can be found here.
