Sonic Reality and IK Multimedia's huge collection on the shelves 30/11/05When you think about it, 20 volumes of samples is a lot. No surprise that IK Multimedia and Sonic Reality are "extremely proud to announce" this fact, wouldnt you be?
The series of newly enhanced sounds forReason 3.0 features a custom Combinator module for each volume. This represents a pretty large body of custom programming to make each volume tailored to Reason 3.0.
The new Combinator is a module within Reason 3.0 that allows building elaborate chains of units: instruments, FX and such- 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 the Sonic Refills appear more like modules than just samples.
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.
