The collection of drum machines were all sampled using Class A preamps with high resolution A/D converters and features 4 Different versions of each sample:

Natural – are the original or “natural” sounding samples of the drum machines. This is as “true” as you can get to the original sound as no other processing was used.

Distorted – features “distorted” samples of the drum machines. This selection was recorded and then processed using some of the best distortion modeling algorithms available. This set offers a great alternative sound and gives “new life” to the vintage sounds.

Production – were recorded and then processed using a “Transient Modulator”, which brings all the sounds of these vintage machines up to date and modernizes them as their transients or “attacks” contain much more “punch” and cut right through today’s mixes.

Reverb – were recorded and then processed using a classic digital reverb algorithm from the 80’s. This set offers the typical reverb sound of the era in which these great machines were used.

The VDM-1 ReFill features stunning Combinator backdrop graphics that emulate the original machine's look and feel. Redrum, NN-XT kits, and Multi-out presets for Rewire Master hosts like Pro Tools, Cubase and others and 'All Kicks', 'All Snares', 'All Claps' etc, mega presets finish off the offering and make it complete.

The VDM-1 ReFill has over unique 50 Presets and contains 670+ samples, which can be used in any Reason device that loads .wav files. And as a bonus, 'Hi-Tec' blank backdrops are included to use with your own Combinator devices.
