The Synth Nation Reason Refill represents over a year of sound design and programming in Reason's internal synths. It has quickly gained popularity as a go-to Reason synth library for producers of many genres, from electronic and pop to hip-hop and funk.
Every patch has been designed using only the internal synth devices in Reason, so it's compatible with Reason 4+ and needs no external samples or libraries. Every device is programmed to its fullest extent, including pitch and mod wheels and assignable controls in the Thor patches.
Every Combinator makes use of all 8 of the buttons and knobs, offering many variations on each patch.
All efforts have been placed towards instant playability and diversity. As soon as you open any of the folders in the Refill, there are hundreds of patches, offering thousands of sonic variations. At over 1100 total patches, there is plenty of material for inspiration when browsing for patches.
Each sound and texture you hear has been carefully designed for producers to use in any genre that needs original synth sounds, and programmed to work flawlessly with Reason's included effects and devices. Original synth sounds doesn't mean "weird stuff", it means patches that acknowledge the traditions of synthesis, both modern and vintage, and look to explore and expand upon those ideas.
There is a wide variety of sounds, organized into broad categories for easy browsing:
- Fiery Leads, cutting, fat Mids and heavy, stacked Power Synths.
- Crushing Basses, from thump and sub to wobble. Rhythmic synths with motion and groove.
- Keys, Pads, Textures and Synth sounds with lush character, flavor and flexibility.
- Pulsing and powerful synths inspired by a wide range of digital and analog gear, with intricate programming.
- Soundscapes and Motion Sequences to add atmosphere, ambience and tension.
You'll find them all. Using only Reason's internal synth devices.
