Nucleus Soundlab release an advanced drum synthesis Refill 30/04/09
Nucleus SoundLab's latest Reason Refill is Synthetic Kits. Here's what they have to say about it...
Synthetic Kits uses the awesome power of Reason 4 to synthesize a new generation of drum and percussion sounds. With Synthetic Kits you gain access to fresh, infinitely configurable drum sounds, while learning advanced drum synthesis!
Synthetic Kits uses Thor, Malstrom and Subtractor to go beyond the tired, old x0x electronic drum sounds. Instead of retreading that synthesis ground, Synthetic Kits continues on to create kits based on FM synthesis, formants, granular and more! These kits will work extremely well in a variety of genres - EBM, trance, filmscore, ambient and even pop.
All kits are in Combinator format and created from scratch. Since these kits are composed out of Reason synths, you are free to tweak them into totally new sounds using our fully-mapped Combinator and Thor knobs. In addition, each kit is packed with at least 4 unique patterns to get you started and inspired!
The next element of Synthetic Kits is the documentation. Continuing Nucleus SoundLab's pioneering approach to Refill documentation, Synthetic Kits' documentation is even more detailed and user-friendly. It includes a new section detailing the designer's inspiration for each patch - as well as better PDF organization. Details:
52 Kit Combinators comprised of at least 4 devices each.
All Combinator/Thor Knobs and Buttons uniquely mapped.
240+ Thor/Mal/Sub device patches organized by type.
The most detailed patch documentation in the industry - educating on sound design and enabling intelligent performance.
A large variety of MP3 demos and demo videos are available. In addition, a Demo Refill is available for free download. Most MP3 demos are also packed inside the full Refill in .RPS format, allowing you to examine their sequencing and sound design construction in detail. Pricing and Availability:
