Propellerhead Software announced the release of the Reason Drum Kits 2.0 ReFill, a collection of drum kits for Reason 3.0 that goes far beyond traditional sampled drum libraries.
Utilizing Reason 3.0's new Combinator device, RDK 2 captures in single patches the sound, the room, EQ, effects, signal routing, the player's feel and multiple output console levels of 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. Hypersampling includes:
The Reason Drum Kits package comes with 17 preset kits created from more than 10000 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. Musician's 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.
To promote the release of Reason Drum Kits 2.0, a video is available at www.propellerheads.se that explains how Reason Drum Kits 2.0 works and how it is different from other drum libraries out there.
