Propellerhead's Reason Drum Kits 2.0 ReFill is a massive sound library of powerful, versatile, lifelike, multi-sampled drum kits designed to work with Reason. The live drum recording sessions capture every aspect of the included kits: the drums, the room, the drummer, the mics and outboard gear; everything. Reason Drum Kits 2 features 58 unique Combinator kits styled for Vintage Soul, Indie-type Pop and Hard Rock, plus 96 additional ReDrum sets and an insane amount of inspirational MIDI files, effect patches, and style templates.
The following things have been added and/or changed in the latest version of Reason Drum Kits: 13 producer kits, 20 style kits, 2 snare drums, 7 preset kits, 25 ReDrum sets, improved hi-hat mapping, presets load as Combinator patches, and rebuilt instrument layouts.
Note: ReFills do not work in standaloneâthey require a full version of Reason to operate. (See "What is a ReFill below)
Mix your own drums
All the instruments in the kits were captured at multiple velocity levels using multiple microphones--all of which are represented on separate channels in Reason's mixer, whenever you load up a kit. By adjusting the levels of the Close, Overhead, and Ambience microphones, you can fully shape and control the sound of your drum kits. You can even add compression, EQ, or effects to individual drums. Essentially, this is like putting a topnotch recording room, drum kit, and drummer right into your computer.
Incredibly authentic samples
The Reason Drum Kits were recorded in acoustic environments tailor-made for drums, using the finest blend of vintage and modern technology. In order to capture all the details and nuances of the featured kits, each instrument was recorded at all possible velocity levels, from a variety of distances and positions.
So when you hammer out a 2-handed snare fill on your MIDI keyboard, you can be sure the same sample is never triggered twice in a row; all mic positions and velocity levels included, the Reason Drum Kits use around 70 samples for one single key. Which adds up to about 800 different samples in one kit! Which makes 10,000 drum and cymbal samples and an infinite number of extremely versatile, extremely dynamic sounding drum kits that are a joy to play.
Build your own kits
Putting together your own personal drum kits using individual drums, hi-hats and cymbals from different kits is a breeze. Lifting an Ambient Snare from one kit, and an Overhead Tom from another is not a problem; Reason lets you copy and paste instruments and all their related samples and velocity layers in one move, allowing you to create drum kits containing up to a thousand samples with just a few mouse clicks.
What is a ReFill?
Even if you haven't come across the term ReFill before, as a Reason user you most likely use ReFills daily. All sounds, patches, loops and grooves included with Reason come in ReFill format, as both the Factory and Orkester Sound Banks are ReFills.
When using ReFills with Reason, you can load patches for any of the devices included in Reason, as well as REX files, samples in WAV or AIFF format, MIDI files and Reason song files.
One advantage of containing sounds in ReFills is that audio samples are compressed to about half their original file size when stored in ReFills, with no loss of audio quality. Samples contained in ReFills also load faster in Reason.
