Way Beyond Fairlight R2 is a huge Reason refill, perhaps one of the largest ones ever made, for Reason 7 and up. It contains over 4,000 individual patches made for NNXT, Combinator, ReDrum, Kong, Subtractor, Thor, Malström, the effect units and even rack extension patches. The refill contains 5 GB of data before packing. This also includes nearly 20,000 individual wavefiles.
The refill contains the complete and possibly largest available Fairlight CMI IIx library. That is the foundation. Furthermore instruments like these have been included: Matrix 12, D-50, JX-8P and JX-10, all Juno models, Jupiter 4, Jupiter 8, Juno 60, Prophet 5, DX7, TX81Z, M1, 01W, Trinity, CZ-5000, Korg Lambda, K4 and even a number of other samplers. We program our own sounds and create our own samples on the original hardware instruments. This is translated into the Reason world by meticulously multisampling, looping and editing.
Work on this refill began back in 2010 and WBF R2 is the 10th iteration of our Peter Vogel & Fairlight AU-approved Fairlight refill for Reason. We have recieved tremendous additions over the years, such as signature patches from nearly all of the famous fellow refill designers and Reason sound designers out there. Graphic design was done by ourselves in collaboration and co work with Kangebodesign's Mats Kangebo who came up with some stunning graphics.
The refill uses all kinds of building blocks (NNXT, effects, synth patches etc) combined into modern sounding and huge patches using Reason's Combinator module. This results in patches light on DSP power but exciting to the ear, directly comparable with any Korg Kronos, Omnisphere 2 or JD-XA setup for instance.
