Soul School 2 is the sequel to Reason Soul School, Propellerhead's best- selling funk-flavored ReFill. Introducing nine brand new grooves from the original Soul School recording sessions, Soul School 2 also comes with patches for Reason's Dr. Octo Rex loop player and the Kong Drum Designer to allow for flexible molding and massaging of the looped material. For new users, Soul School 2 also comes with the same great multisampled instruments as the original: bass, guitar, drums and horns for entirely new compositions, as well as effects patches for Reason's The Echo, Pulveriser, Scream4 and RV7000 Reverb.
The Reason Soul School series get under the skin of the music. It's like having access to every channel - every instrument - on an old school rare groove multitrack tape.
The sound of soul's three capitals
Called Motown, the Detroit based Soul made famous by The Supremes, Marvin Gaye and countless others is light, bouncy and joyful. In translating the Detroit sound to the Reason Soul School ReFill, our focus was on creating a Temptations style vibe, keeping the drums small in size, but allowing the overall sound to be large and roomy.
Forever eternalized by Stax Records and artists like Booker T, Memphis represents a rootsier, bluesier sound. Our approach in achieving a Memphis type feel was to maintain a looser playing style and keep the drum and instrument sounds nice and dry.
Personified by mr James Brown himself, the Cincinnati sound is funky, gritty, punchy and to the point. During the process of capturing the Cincinnati sound for this ReFill we adopted the precise, almost mechanical, yet extremely funky playing style. The sound? Dirty.
