The Theory II - Arcanum continues where The Theory left off, by including every possible pentatonic, hexatonic, and heptatonic(5, 6, and 7 note) scale, and all the chords that match them. All told there are 189 scales on each root note, for a total of 2,268 scales. When broken up into modes that’s 1125 on each note, or 13,500 scales. It’s likely there are scales in this refill that no one’s ever written songs in.

-286 total song files for Reason 6 and up or 572 reason 5 and record 1.5 song files, 286 for each program.
-36 Scale files containing 330 pentatonic, 462 hexatonic, and 462 heptatonic scales in individual clips, which are then organized in modes, and 189 full scale maps that contain the scales plotted across the entire keyboard.
-189 Chords In Scales files, one for each scale, containing the scales and chords transposed for each root note.
-36 Chords In Scales files organized by root note that contain all the chords transposed and plotted across the 189 scales they fit into.

Example files and an introductory pdf are available on the product page: http://3rdfloorsound.com/arcanum.html



The AutoTheory is a refill for Pitchblende and Mozaic's excellent Rack Extension of the same name. While this refill is meant as a compliment to the first two Theory refills, those are in no way a requirement. As long as you own the rack extension, this refill will be useful to you.

Inside, you'll find 2 patches--triads and extended chords--for each of most modes of the 21 included scales. That's 231 Autotheory patches comprised of:
150 patches for the eleven 7-note scales. including "Greek" modes,
55 patches for five 6-note scales,
& 26 patches for five pentatonic scales, for $21.95.

A small sampling of the content is available for download on the product page:
