IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality have
announced that 20 volumes and 2 collections of newly enhanced sounds for
Reason 3.0 will ship in November. There is also a new dedicated website for the Sonic Refill Series,
www.sonicrefills.com . These collections
represent the widest range of Reason sounds available from a single sound
developer and offer virtually any sounds needed for Reason users.
Sonic Reality has now taken the Sonic Refill Series to new heights with the
addition of a custom Combinator module for each volume. The new Combinator
is a sophisticated module of Reason 3.0 that allows building elaborate
chains of units â€“ like instruments, FX and more - which can be saved and
immediately loaded within Reason as Combi patches. When a Combi patch is
opened, all units in the created setup are instantly loaded, complete with
sounds, settings and routings. With its ability to load up complex
instruments routed through FX units and dynamic processors as one global
unit, the Combinator is an extremely playable and performance-friendly
device, making sounds appear more like â€œmodulesâ€� than simple â€œsamplesâ€�.
In fact, the Combinator offers patches resulting from the combination of all
of the modules within Reason 3, not only the NNXT Sampler but also the
MÃ¤lstrom, Subtractor, ReDrum, Scream, Dr Rex, Matrix, MClass Mastering FX,
and others, in one convenient module that can be loaded with a simple click.
Additionally, every volume in this series also contains two different Refill
versions, one for Reason 2.5 and another for Reason 3.0 (while the sounds
remain compatible with Reason 2.5, only Reason 3 users will be able to take
advantage of the new Combinator module patches) making them suitable for the
widest base of users.
