Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of its latest Reason Refill: Synthetic Kits.
Synthetic Kits uses the 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, according to Nucleus SoundLab.
Synthetic Kits uses Thor, Malstrom and Subtractor to go beyond the standard 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 work 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 the fully-mapped Combinator and Thor knobs. In addition, each kit includes at least 4 unique patterns to get you started and inspired.
According to Nucleus SoundLab, 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.
- 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.
- Detailed patch documentation - 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.
Synthetic Kits is available now. It is priced at $49 in downloadable format. Nucleus SoundLab Customers will receive a 10% discount on their order.
