Product details

Using new innovative techniques that bring the best out of Reasons strengths, we have created a new way of looking at string production using reason.

As sound designers we don't want to compromise on sound quality so we wanted to keep the highest quality recordings in the instruments.

This meant having to create new ways of sound realism without having to have many GB of layered samples which only take up space and slow down performance.

So after a number trials we feel we came up with a solution. By adding playable dynamics we are able to keep the high quality and also keep the refill size down!

Win - win. The playable dynamics vary per patch but one stoke of the mod wheel kicks a series of movements into action which when mastered give you the option to play massive strings without any of the side effects.

RE-Legato is a concept we designed where the pitch wheel had been removed in favor of a 3 way playable switch. Pressing up on the wheel while playing an upward progression will give you a true legato never seen in reason before in any R.E or Refill. The same applies to downward movement and if you want to you can automate it all for perfection. The Re-Legato creates absolutely rue sounding strings you can see our video that covers it for more information.

We also added favorites from other Softphonics libraries like Keyswitch patches and split keyboard patches which are extremely handy in both studio and live situations. The Animator section is vast and covers moving stings in a variety of instruments > Articulations > Time Signature > Patterns & Sequences, in both Note and chord form. So this in itself is a huge area to work with and has tons of pre-programmed patterns for all styles of music.
