“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.”

Reviews of the Fairlight refills YOUTUBE: USER QUOTES
|Fairlight Kontakt YOUTUBE SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ 854 absolutely fantastic patches for Native Instruments Kontakt, derived from Fairlight II+ as well as many of the other instruments. Also contains patches unique to Kontakt, with effect assignments and so on. Free for users of our previous Kontakt Project.|
|Fairlight Kontakt & XXL for Reason 5 and upwards.|
|Fairlight Kontakt & Platinum for Reason 6 and upwards.
|Omnia samples for Reason|
|_ All samples from Fairlight Platinum and even more new samples. Everything organized into folders. Base sample refill for the Omnia series refills. No patches included (add Omnia patch refills after taste). Decent for programmers who just want samples and program patches of their own.|
|_ Redrum patch refill for Omnia.|
|_ Art Of Noise-inspired refill for Omnia.|
|Omnia samples for anything YOUTUBE|
|_ All WAV & AIFF samples from Fairlight Platinum and even more new samples. Everything organized into folders. Not packed into a refill, so this version can be used with any sampler out there, from software to hardware. The download comes with about 6000 samples.
|All ReDrum drum kits from the Fairlight refills, as well as Fairlight effect sounds, for the one who is looking for drums and effect sounds only. You can also add this refill if you are using Fairlight Platinum but find it hard to locate the redrum kits.|

|2. Other Bitley™ Reason ReFills|
|EIII INCLUDED IN ALL FAIRLIGHT REFILLS SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ Unique sounds resampled from a vintage E-mu Emulator Three sampler with analog filters. Combinators and NNXT patches. Strings, voices, bass sounds, effects and synths. About 100 of each type.|
|Orlando JX10 INCLUDED IN ALL FAIRLIGHT REFILLS SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ Our own Roland JX10 (vintage analog synth from 1986) patches sampled and processed by analog tape, to give the sounds a unique character. Combined with samples of some of the more famous JX patches.|
|The Prophet INCLUDED IN ALL FAIRLIGHT REFILLS SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ Each factory patch from the Sequential Prophet 5, sampled at each single note. The exact sound from the Prophet. Not possible to recreate with any virtual synthesis engine in the entire world.|
|Flux™ INCLUDED IN FAIRLIGHT PLATINUM SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ Included in Fairlight Platinum only. Flux is like a unique rack extension instrument, only that it was programmed with the possibilities given in Reason. Samples are combined with realtime controllable synth oscillators providing a means to vary the samples endlessly. Also, tweaking the patches is very user-friendly and instant. Combinator patches only.
|Bitley™ O8 STOCKHOLM SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ 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.|
|Bitley™ Poly Ensemble SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ 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.
|360 Degrees Koolness||FREE|
|_ A little fun refill which also contains a Fairlight refill demo song. 360 Degrees was sampled from a cheap toy keyboard & then programmed to sound kool again, like those samples were treated inside of a 8 bit sampler for a while and then recovered. Comes with a few funky fresh presets and will blend nicely with hi fidelity material.|
|Classix Noveaux Les Synthesis||FREE|
|_ Actually a rather sweet collection of sounds from analog classics such as Korg MS-20, Oberheim Matrix 6 and a few others. Programmed with various Reason tricks in order to sound wider and nicer. Most samples were made by Henrik 'The Void' & the Reason programming was made by Bitley™.|
|Dreams Of Robots COULD POSSIBLY BE SORTED IN THE ROUND ARCHIVE?||FREE|
|Patrick Fridh's D-50 ReFill INCLUDED IN ALL FAIRLIGHT REFILLS||FREE|
|_ There I was, one day, with a Roland D-50 and a few free hours to spare. Having been a Propellerhead employee, I wanted to come back to the PUF (Propellerhead User Forum) with a grand opening as the free creator I had become. The year was 2003 or 2004 and I asked if some other members out there could help me share this refill. They could, and they did. And nowadays things are much easier thanks to cloud computing, so here's my D-50 refill, still alive and kicking. Quite a large selection of D-50 sounds actually. Enjoy!|
|3. Bitley™ ReFills for Reason 6.5 (and up) Rack Extensions|
|Fascination & RePulsion (For Propellerhead's Pulsar Rack Extension) YOUTUBE SOUNDCLOUD|
|_ The first commercial, ie 'serious' RE-based refill in the entire world - 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.|
|Polix Quest (For Korg's Polysix Rack Extension) SOUNDCLOUD
|_ 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!|
|4. Bitley™ soundbanks for traditional synthesizers (System Exclusive)
Although we invested hundreds of hours into creating these sound banks, the demand for synth sounds doesn't seem anywhere near how it was when these sounds were new. We have therefore decided to share our synth patches for free. We hope you will like them. Use any Sysex software to transmit the sounds to your synth; ie Elektron C6, SysEx Librarian (Mac), MidiOX (PC) or something else. The picture was taken in 2013: we're still keeping our hardware synths and these were the ones used to create the soundbanks. Unfortunately no JX10 around though.
|A fantastic, fun bank for your Casio VZ synth|
|Yamaha TX81Z DX11 sounds: Bitley™ SequenceMe!|
|Two banks (32 sounds each) for the Yamaha TX81Z and its vast array of brothers and sisters. This was reviewed in Keyboard Magazine many years ago, and they gave it a Knockout package remark.|
|Roland JX8P sounds: Bitley™ LFO Xperiences JX8P SOUNDCLOUD|
|Lots of wonderful tones to the even more wonderful JX8P. The 8P can not understand a complete set of sounds at once so you have to send sound by sound, try it out and then save it manually in the 8P if you liked the sound. The synth only has 32 parking lots so you have to perhaps use a pen and a paper and some planning to not overwrite something you like.|
|Roland JX10 MKS70 SuperJX sounds: Bitley™ LFO Xperiences JX10|
|A complete set of 50 tones and 64 patches. Can be sent directly to a M-64C or to the synth's internal memory. Best is if you have a M-64C and if you are really tired of hearing the old factory patches. These sounds are alive, kicking, smooth and fun.|
|Kawai K4 sounds: Bitley™ New Age K4|
|Majestic pads for the K4. 64 single patches, no multi patches.|
|Kawai K4 sounds: Bitley™ Analog K4|
|Fat, funky, juicy and analog sounds for the K4. 64 single patches, no multi patches.|
|Kawai K4 sounds: Bitley™ Xtravaganza K4|
|A combination of this & that, includes some of our best K4 sounds. 64 single patches, no multi patches.|
