Bitword has announced the release of Oxide Kits Volume 2 for Reason 4.
As a composer, Oxide Kits Volume 2 will, according to Bitword, "offer inspiration" with percussive oddities, and musical noises, but it will also serve sound design needs as a stinger, and impact creation tool for film, television, and multimedia production. Mapped for the NN-XT, ReDrum, and custom Combinators, these kits are ready to be played, or further manipulated. Just a few envelope or pitch changes can lead to a whole new feel. With that in mind, a great deal of care was taken to make them useful as is, and what you hear in the audio demos is raw, unmastered output, created by using different kits from this collection.
A healthy dose of Analog drums, and processed hits are included, to complete the electro-organic feel. All wet reverberated hits, are also provided dry in other kits too. Some sounds are also created through processes, and this fixes everything together to create a "unique hybrid sounding" collection.
Oxide Kits Volume 2 is nearly three times the size of its predecessor. Weighing in at just over 1 Gigabyte, and just under 3,000 samples in 24 bit / 44.1 khz wav format, these are more than just drum kits.
Retail Price will be $79 after the introductory price of $59, and can be purchased and immediately downloaded from www.bitword.com.
