Propellerhead Software has released the Reason Drum Kits 2.0 ReFill sample library, a collection of drum kits for Reason 3.0.
Utilizing Reason 3.0's new Combinator device, RDK 2 captures in single patches the sound, room, EQ, effects, signal routing, the player's feel and multiple output console levels of professionally engineered drum sessions. The ReFill includes Producer Kits that emulate famous Producers' signature drums sounds by recreating their signal flow and effects chains along with Hypersampled libraries within Reason Combinator patches. An entire session can be loaded or swapped with a single click. Producers who have worked with such artists as The Hives, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Mary J. Blige personally constructed Producer Kits for Propellerheads.
Reason Drum Kits 2.0 ReFill was recorded at Stockholm's Atlantis Studio using Propellerhead Software's Hypersampling method. The Reason Drum Kits package comes with 17 preset kits created from more than 10,000 samples. The kits are divided into genres with styles covering pop/indie, funk/soul and rock/metal. Style templates for each genre will help users get the sound they are looking for. Musicians who use ReWire-enabled audio recording software such as ProTools, Logic or Live can use Reason as a dedicated standalone drum studio and drummer.
The product comes on a DVD ROM disc that includes two versions of the ReFill: one 16-bit and one 24 bit. Also included are demo songs, MIDI categorized files and kits for Reason's ReDrum Drum Computer module.
The Reason Drum Kit ReFill is now available at Propellerheads' Dealers worldwide or directly from Propellerhead Software at www.propellerheads.se for a MSRP of $129 U.S. Upgrades from Reason Drum Kits 1.0 are available for $36 U.S.
