Propellerhead Software has released Reason Drum Kits ReFill,
a multi-gigabyte collection of drum kits.
The Reason Drum Kits ReFill was created using Propellerhead Software's Hypersampling
method that includes:
- Multiple velocity levels for capturing each instrument's full dynamic range.
- Multiple microphones for capturing and controlling distance, ambience and
character. Each microphone has it's own channel in the Reason mixer for full
- Multiple same velocity samples. The NN-XT automatically alternates between
sets of similar sounding samples, for a more realistic performance.
- Multiple variation sampling for capturing the human input and the different
techniques, grips and playing styles that bring life to an instrument.
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.
The product comes on a DVD disc that includes two versions of the ReFill:
on 16-bit and one 24 bit. Also included are demo songs, MIDI categorized files
and kits for Reason's ReDrum Drum Computer module.
