Nucleus SoundLab has released a brand-new ReFill exclusively built for Propellerhead Reason 6 - Celluloid Beats, which they describe as an amazingly unique set of cinematic percussion loops suitable for filmscoring, game sound design, IDM and other electronic genres. They say that the loops inside have been specially processed using a proprietary additive vocoding techique to emphasize long, smooth decay stages. Beyond the loops themselves, Celluloid Beats is also the first ReFill in a new series called Modular Grooves. Here's all the details in Nucleus SoundLab's own words...
Modular Grooves ReFills are meant to provide musicians and producers with a infinitely configurable palette of loops. These loops sound great at virtually any tempo thanks to being sampled using Wide BPM technology - anywhere from 60bpm to 300bpm is fair game. There is no reason to be limited by the original tempo of a loop any more!
Each Combinator patch in a Celluloid Beats contains 8 loops - 1 original loop and 7 creative loop remixes. This is achieved by using the Slice Edit Mode on Dr. OctoRex to change filtering, decay, volume and more on a per-step basis for each loop. Going farther than that, unique FX are added to each patch which are used to effect specific loop slices - so each slice in a loop can have a different distortion, filtering or delay! The resulting loop remixes sound incredibly complex, but they certainly aren't complicated to use. A single Combinator Rotary switches between all 8 loops; and you can also easily dive into Dr. OctoRex to tweak any loop remix to taste! To help users understand the Modular Grooves technology and get the very most out of it, PDF documentation is included.
Celluloid Beats also comes packed with all its loops in raw REX2 format outside the ReFill itself at no additional charge. So users can easily load these loops into other sampler, such as Kontakt, Ableton Live, Battery and more without any hassles.
