Propellerhead Software and Drummerheads announced the Jason McGerr Sessions ReFill ($49) for Reason Version 4. McGerr, the drummer of Death Cab for Cutie, as well as a producer and owner of Two Stick Studios, has created a collection of acoustic drum loops and hyper-sampled drum kits.
The Jason McGerr Sessions ReFill comprises drum kits and REX loops covering a wide range of styles, all with an alternative feel. McGerr himself performed and recorded all material in the same studio with the same instruments and recording equipment used to record the drums for the upcoming Death Cab for Cutie album. Inspired by Propellerhead’s Hypersampling approach used in Reason Drum Kits 2, Jason McGerr Sessions offers more than 900 REX loops along with more than 2,000 individual drum samples. Users can build songs with REX loops and then use the multisampled kits to make the drum sounds their own.
The ReFill has three different ambient miked versions of the drum kit that can be used on their own or in various combinations, and enables users to balance close and ambient mics. The collection also offers 40 MIDI files, 38 ReDrum patches, 12 Effects patches, 38 NN-XT patches and more than 25 Combinator patches, including various Style Kits and Drum Machine performance patches.
