Way Beyond Fairlight ($69)

Way Beyond Fairlight R2

WBF R2 is the world’s most massive Fairlight CMI based library, with over 4000 patches. Armed with Reason you can instantly sample any sound and process it. Resample it. Timestretch it. Reverse it. Loop it. And perform all sorts of creative processing. Put the sound through some filters, effects, vocoders, pitch-shifters – or double it up with itself for psuedo stereo layering. Or maybe you sampled in stereo from the beginning. Or perhaps you imported sounds you’d recorded with a field recorder, or your smartphone.

To create a much richer experience, add the entire sound library from one of the world’s most expensive and mythical synthesizer instruments ever created; the Fairlight CMI. And not just samples; this is professional grade work, patched and processed for you in all thinkable ways. Instantly tweakable without limits. Reason is a greater than great foundation and studio / sequencing tool to work with as it supports thousands of voices of polyphony, all sorts of audio interfaces including the largest ProTools setups and the ability to co-exist with any DAW in sample accurate synchronization. We work with this platform and Kontakt. Our sounds have been perfectly tailored for both, individually.

Supported instrument types. Combinator, ReDrum and NNXT. You will even find Kong, Dr Octorex, Subtractor, Thor and Malström stuff as well as RE patches for PX7, Radical Piano, Pulsar, Polysix, ReDominator and a few others. Effect presets are for RV7000, Scream, Tape Echo. Among the sound categories you’ll find stuff not just sorted by instrument type (Bass, Keys, Pads, Fairlight voice sounds etc) but also by artist (Enya, Art Of Noise, Yello, Pet Shop Boys etc). Sounds are designed with all of the most spectacular NNXT & Combinator features activated, using 24-bit, perfectly looped samples taken from Fairlight IIX. But to complete the picture and give you a very complete studio setup we have added other amazing stuff as well, such as Matrix 12, JX-8P, Juno 106, Jupiter 4, Prophet 5, DX7, CZ-5000 and much more. Plenty of drum machines as well. Reason specific programming includes over 200 ReDrum kits.

Expertly programmed Human League (Don’t You Want Me) instrumental cover by Ed “EditEd4TV” B – one of the most famous Reason enthusiasts. Most of these sounds are in WBF R2, since he kindly agreed to contribute with signature patches.

Signature wealth on top. Additional signature patches includes combinators, Thor & NNXT patches, all generously provided by some of the world’s top Reason programmers, who offered to be a part of this massive “Fairlight CMI and much more undertaking”.

A no joke development. Reaching K2 or WBF R2 took about five years of continous daily work to accomplish, including extensive programming, sampling, sound editing, organising, graphic design etc and it is the follow up to previous successes such as Fairlight II+, Fairlight XXL & Fairlight Platinum – includes all those sounds and much more.
