Propellerhead Software has announced the availability of Reason Soul School ReFill for Reason. They tell us that the Reason Soul School ReFill explores the classic sounds coming out of three of soul's biggest capitals: Detroit, Memphis and Cincinnati. Here's more details directly from Propellerhead Software...
The Soul School ReFill sample library features twelve unique soul and funk instrumentals with all their musical elements – bass, drums, guitars and horns – in Propellerhead's tempo-independent REX format, as well as a collection of the 60's and 70's-sounding instruments multisampled for use with Reason's NN-XT sampler and powerful Combinator device. Reason users will find the library organic sounding and extremely flexible; they can use the ReFill as a starting point for song creation, play their own tracks from the instruments or add "classic spice" to any style of music.
Composed exclusively for this ReFill and recorded using the finest in vintage technology, all material was played live by funk-savvy session musicians – simultaneously, without overdubs, for that genuine feel.
"It's like finding the multitrack masters from a stack of unreleased records from that era," says Kristoffer Wallman, Propellerhead Content Manager. "When we started looking at the sounds we wanted to capture in Soul School, these three cities stood out with their distinct sounds and solid grooves."
Every drum fill, bass line, guitar riff and horn lick featured in Reason Soul School is in Propellerhead's REX format, sampled in different keys for full flexibility and tempo independence. Complementing the loops and licks are the multisampled versions of the included instruments, as well as the Reason Soul Keys ReFill, containing patches for the Reason Factory Sound Bank and Propellerhead's free Electromechanical ReFill as well as Abbey Road Keyboards and Reason Pianos based on the Soul School sound.
Reason Soul School takes its place amongst the five other critically acclaimed Propellerhead Collection ReFills for Reason, further expanding Reason users' sonic palettes.
