EMINESSENCE REVIEW: “Fairlight Platinum is unique in that it’s the only reason refill of its kind that has become a living document of sorts. In other words, it continues to grow and evolve. Bitley continues to find ways to pack more value, more bang for your buck, and higher quality into this already peerless product. I’m confident in saying that Bitley’s refills and sound libraries are the standard by which all sound libraries, regardless of the platform, should be judged.”
With the Fairlight refills, we really created a monster. The development started as a 400 Mb project in 2010. Today you're looking at four available versions, sized between 1,5 - 2 Gb. And that's when packed.
The largest version is for Reason 7 and comes with nearly 5 Gigabytes of data before packing. 13,000 individual files. Nearly 4,000 individual patches. The smallest version is still extremely large — but also compatible with Reason 4. Which means you can still max out a dual G5 PPC Mac computer with Reason 4 and the Fairlight refill – and still be able to have plenty of fun with it.
All versions comes as download files delivered via Dropbox. You do not have to worry about Dropbox space since you can unjoin / rejoin at any time. Please allow for up to 12 hours of delivery since it's 1) a manual process and 2) we are in Sweden (CET +1).
Now, let's look at which instruments we sampled.
The Fairlight refills comes with all Fairlight CMI IIX factory sounds. Other sampled sources include E-mu Emulator II, E-mu Emulator III, Roland JX8P, Roland JX10, Roland Jupiter 4, Roland D-50, Roland TR-505, 606, 707, 808 and 909. Prophet 1 and 5. Yamaha DX7. Yamaha TX81Z. Casio VZ1. Moog Minimoog. Casio CZ-5000. LinnDrum. Oberheim Matrix 6 and Matrix 12, DMX. Roland SH-101. Korg Trinity. Korg 01/W. Roland Juno 60 & 106. Wavestation. Prophet VS. Roland V-Synth. Yamaha DX7II. Roland TB-303. Roland S-550. Roland CR-68, CR-78. Casio RZ-1. Yamaha RX5.
So, is this a sample-playback library? Both yes and no. Of course most patches do play back samples. But if you look at the roundabout 1,000 Combinator patches, they do contain synthesis as well. In various, endless and astonishing configurations.
If you are looking out to truly maximize your experience with Propellerhead Reason, this is the way to go. These soundbanks represent four of the largest Reason refills ever made, and that's in the entire universe.
Any user of our refills will tell you these are true go-to refills when creating music, extremely inspiring soundbanks. And I do this because I love Reason. I have worked for Propellerhead Software and I have done some of the factory patches in Reason. Such as 'Amazing Lead' for Malström. I have used the program since the year 2000 and I have written magazine articles about it, helped thousands of users to configure it – and I've also had a true joyride of music making with it.
Also included are hundreds of signature patches from some of the best Reason sound developers out there, including EditEd4TV, Dr Loop, Navi Retlav, Max Waves!
Here's a short description of the individual versions available today. All versions are compatible with both Mac and PC, naturally, and any older version of the refills will work just as great with a later Reason version too. It's just that the later refills really take advantage of the newer additions to Reason.
Fairlight II+ was the first refill with our new look and feel – everything was categorized into 'virtual instruments', making it easy to understand where to find certain sounds. These virtual instruments are consistent throughout the entire series of the Bitley™ Fairlight refills. Fairlight II+ comes with about 2,400 patches and was made for Reason 4. So in other words it works great with the older Power Mac models (pre intel). It was, in fact, made with a Dual 2 Ghz G5. The next version is...
Fairlight XXL, which comes with an additional 500 patches and works with Reason 5 and up. XXL also includes lots of programming examples such as demo tracks and patterns not included in any other version. Next;
Fairlight Platinum comes with about 3,500 patches and was made for Reason 6 and up. It added Kong drumkits and a fantastic wave of new sounds sampled from Trinity, CZ-5000 and more. Platinum includes two bonus libraries not found in any other version, with what we would consider to be absolutely lovely fun samples, showcasing what some artists did with early sampling. Notably Paul Hardcastle and The Art Of Noise.
Way Beyond Fairlight is the latest Reason 7 and up release and comes with about 4,000 patches including a lot of material from O8 and Poly Ensemble, two of our newest and most fantastic refills to date. WBF also has an entirely new sample organization where it is much much easier to find specific waveforms – and it includes many many more & new samples. WBF also includes lots of RE patches for many new fun Rack Extensions.
Fascination & Repulsion was an experiment to see if the Pulsar's Low Frequency O's could be used as what they really are... oh? Oscillators! LFO module sounded interesting but we focused on the fact that it actually was an oscillator module. Of that came some fascinating and also repulsive patches & we decided to include all of them. The sounds are charming, warming and alarming. A bit like a modular synthesist's wet dream and yet straight out of the Reason rack. Compatible with Reason 6,5 and up, hence the price.
Order Fascination & Repulsion! $19
Since our history with the Korg Polysix goes a long way back, we were really adopters of the Polysix rack extension as well as the Korg Legacy pack from 2003. As well as the iPolysix for iPad, but that's another story. Anyway, here was the world's second RE-based commercial refill and it really delivers what most people want out of the Polysix. Really wonderful and useful synth sounds, that is. Always at the bargain price of $6,50. Enjoy!
Poly Ensemble recreates the vintage analog Korg Lambda string machine / poly synthesizer by including perfectly looped multisamples of all the Lambda instruments, soloed and in combinations both constructed afterwards in Reason's Combinator and constructed on the Lambda itself.
Analog is truly a completely different animal than digital and it's soothing and warm to get these sounds into Reason's ultra sterile digital environment. Call up some strings, close your eyes and start playing. The Lambda is one of the synthesizer history's hidden gems. It will become more popular once people realize, again, how wonderful it sounds.
We bought the Lambda from Vemia in the UK btw.
For a fraction of the price you're getting a big bite into its deepest analog alleys of majestic pads and unrealistic but funky keyboard sounds.
[O Eight] is a fantastic refill not intended to be confused for an Oberheim refill (even though we love Oberheim synths!). It's rather a salute to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, where Reason is being fabricated. And where I, too, was fabricated and delivered. ;-) (Yes, we are in Sweden too!)
Digital, analog, evolving. The sounds in this refill are built upon the extremely stable foundation of over 300 perfectly looped waveforms, making this refill a fantastic virtual synthesizer for the Reason rack. It brings sounds Reason itself can not produce and it brings back life to our oldest libraries of sounds for hardware synthesizers as once liked, and used, by Roxette among others. Also comes with a number of drum samples.
With O8 you are in fact getting a complete classic digtal sample playback synth in your rack. With more usable patches than a stacked rack of old 19" rack gear. Trust us. That's what we are using to create the sounds for you.
Enter Back to the future! Here's the Flux Capacitor, the ultimate time-shifting soundbank!
The Flux refill is like a software synth in itself; like a rack extension even though it's made for Reason 5 and up. Creative programming and samples including Casio CZ, Korg Trinity and more. The Flux patches were specifically designed to sound different. Moving, evolving and lush sounds.
This is a revised and updated collection of our Kawai K4 & K4R banks with lots of entirely new sounds - made during May 2014 - added on top.
The content is: 64 single sounds, a drum setup and an effect setup. The sysex file is just 14.8 kb's as usual and can be transferred using any free sysex tool for your PC or Mac. A couple of freeware sysex tools for Mac and PC are included as well as three bonus banks from us and the factory sounds from Kawai so you don't have to backup your synth if you've not tweaked its sounds. If you have, backing those sounds up takes less than a minute and saves you lot of pain if your K4's internal battery should run out.
A perfect injection of new life to any K4 or K4R gathering dust out there.
Omnia is the complete and utterly extreme wavefile collection from our premium Reason 7 refill WBF (Way Before Fairlight). All samples are sorted into categories making them easy to find. The samples are our original material sampled from sources such as: E-mu Emulator II, E-mu Emulator III, Roland JX8P, Roland JX10, Roland Jupiter 4, Roland D-50, Roland TR-505, 606, 707, 808 and 909. Prophet 1 and 5. Yamaha DX7. Yamaha TX81Z. Casio VZ1. Moog Minimoog. Casio CZ-5000. LinnDrum. Oberheim Matrix 6 and Matrix 12, DMX. Roland SH-101. Korg Trinity. Korg 01/W. Roland Juno 60 & 106. Wavestation. Prophet VS. Roland V-Synth. Yamaha DX7II. Roland TB-303. Roland S-550. Roland CR-68, CR-78. Casio RZ-1. Yamaha RX5. Fairlight IIX.
