Way Beyond Fairlight is the latest Reason refill creation from Bitley Sounds & Refills in Sweden. They tell us that, developed for four years, this refill comes with nearly 4,000 individual patches ranging from tiny mallet sounds to huge pads, from bass sounds to bass drums, from hihats to sound effects. Here's the details in Bitley's own words...
The size of the refill is 5 Gigabytes before packing, or just over 2 Gigabytes after packing. Way Beyond Fairlight, or WBF, contains not only the entire Fairlight IIx sound library but also multi-sampled synthesizers like Alpha Juno, JX8P, D50, VZ1, Prophet 5, Jupiter 4, Lambda, DX7 and many others as well as hundreds of drum kits including many famous drum machines. The total number of samples alone exceeds 7,000 so this is a rather large library. Also included is signature patches from many other sound designers as well as Rack Extension patches and Thor & Subtractor sounds. The unique Combinator patches (of which there are over 1,000) ensure that this refill is not just a sample playback refill, it is also a complete synthesizer studio solution with expertly programmed Combinator assignments and connections to easily tweak and edit the included sounds even beyond recognition.
Pricing and Availability:
The refill is available now as a download for $199 (USD) worldwide. This includes future additions of even more patches and samples. WBF is made with and for Reason 7.
