CLASSIX NOUVEAUX LES SYNTHESIS
A quite fun little refill with great and very tiny samples taken from classic machines like Korg MS20, Oberheim Matrix 6, Ensoniq SQ80 and many others. These sounds are a little “samply and unperfect” but that’s the style we used to carry with our older EPS & ASR samplers back in the 90’s. Excellent patches for the sequencing creative producer always looking for cool and strange little sounds to spice up an arrangement. Best of all, the price is so low it’s silly. Also included is an even more silly refill called Dreams Of Robots, with samples from a cheap toy keyboard, really dirty and lofi.

This refill gives you our own custom patches as programmed on the quite stunning analog Behringer Deep Mind 12 synthesizer. As a neat bonus the sysex patches for the DM12 are also included, if you should happen to have or get a DM12 later on. The refill contains “single” as well as combinator sounds and these are truly some of the coolest synth sounds to ever come from Reason. Very very playable and enjoyable.
This demo video plays our patches pretty much soloed, building up into a full arrangement to give you an idea of what it sounds like:
Note: This refill is also included in the WBF R2X pack below.

If you would peek into the extremely fun sampling world we provide with the giant WBF R2 refill but perhaps feel the price is a bit steep, this is an excellent alternative; this refill contains our experiments on the extremely classic E-mu Emulator III sampler. You will get a rich assortment of flutes, banjos, harps and synthesizers all perfectly programmed and with a rich set of stunning Combinator patches. The EIII was a fantastic machine but it had lots of stability issues; none of those will be present here but this library will take you into the EIII world – a world you will like a lot.

The O8R refill contains synth waveforms ideal for using the NNXT as a digital synthesizer. These waveforms can be combined in a multitude of ways and a large selection of patches (for NNXT and Combinator) is also included. Many of these sounds are also included in WBF R2 but this is a highly enjoyable refill in its own right, giving you great and perfectly looped waveforms so that you can create sounds similar to synths like Korg M1, Kawai K4 and Roland D-50. If you like creating your own patches this is an excellent toolbox with endless variation. This refill is compatible with Reason version 4 and up.

This is one of the most passionate Reason refill projects ever concieved. Some of these sounds has been passed on into the giant WBF R2 project (found below) but here they are in their original form, using the original JX10 inspired combinator skins. This is actually a perfect soundbank for techno and hiphop artists as the sounds are very samply and lofi but not in the normal sense. Here’s why; we decided to create really dirty sounds so they were processed this way: Recorded on to tape. And then sampled from the tapes. You will also get great drum sounds and some more clean emulations of the real JX10 synth patches. All in all this one is a lovely refill.

POLY X3M PLATINUM
Poly X3M builds upon the idea of the Korg Lambda Poly ensemble synth, which is a vintage analog machine with fantastic sounds. The structure was kept intact, with stunning multisamples of it, added with a truckload of other sound sources, still categorized “the Lambda way”
The quite cool X3M combinator design allows for seamless mixing between 8 pre-defined sound categories; Electric Piano, Brass, Clav, Organ, Piano, Voices, Oscillators and Strings. The underlying multi-sampled and perfectly programmed NNXT patches respond to these category selections making it a breeze to create unique combinations of sounds. About 250 patches are sorted into the given categories, so the number of possible combinations is just about endless (or something like 100 millions). A good assignment of various reverbs, choruses, delays and arpeggio patches (with different arpeggios assigned to different sounds) round it all up, allowing for very complex patches that easily would tax the CPU in some other environment. Not so in Reason, with its ultra high end CPU optimization.
The entire waveform bank of its multisamples and single samples is seamlessly looped, thus giving you a vast selection of about 650 unique raw synthesizer waveforms to use for your own patch creations. Sampled sources includes various combinations of D-50, JX-8P, our Flux library, our O8 library, Lambda, pianos and selected & treated re-edited waveforms from our massive Fairlight libraries. .
Content: 350 Combinators, 370 NNXTs, 60 Rex loops (synth phrases & chords), 30 ReDrum Kits, 20 FX Patches, 20 RE Patches (about 730 Mb when packed)

RE-XT 1 is a rack extension refill with our patch design for a number of great rack extension synths, including Propellerhead’s Pulsar synth / LFO engine, the Korg Polysix RE and Propellerhead’s FM monster, the PX7. Included are hundreds of patches for these instruments and even a few Combinator patches where rack extension powers were combined for really fat and nice sounds.
Note: This refill is also included in the WBF R2X pack below.

A chance to get the vibe of the real Prophet 5 right into the Reason rack.
The Prophet is a refill containing each single factory sound from the (revision 2) Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 synth from 1978, and all sounds here were multisampled – in fact, we sampled each and every single note from the old analog super classic synth. Many of these sounds were also included in WBF R2 but this refill is great as it truly gives you the real analog sound – something a software synthesizer never will be able to reproduce. You will get jitter, detuned sounds, quirks that truly only can come from the analog world. A perfect match and compliment to the sometimes way too perfect sounds we hear from the synthesizers in the rack. Also included: The drum refill DaBeat with all of the drum kits as they were in WBF R2’s predecessor, the Fairlight XXL refill.

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.

WAY BEYOND FAIRLIGHT R2Y 1
New for December 14, 2018: A wonderful and small player’s piano refill focusing on the Propellerhead PX7 module. By designing the combinator with several PX7 units this refill is inspired by the Yamaha TX-816 from the 80’s, a monster synth rack that could hold up to 8 “TF1” modules, each module representing a complete DX7. This refill works for everyone, so WBF R2 is not necessary but a few extra patches (names beginning with WBF R2) are there as well. This refill is completely free, so if you have the PX7, enjoy!

WAY BEYOND SOLID
Brand new for Dec 15, 2018, this is the ultimate Solid & Lately Bass pack for PX7, giving you pure classic house settings with processing and creative programming as well as instant, easy tweakabilty thanks to smart Combinator assignments. Similar to the free PX7 refill above, we have filled up the whole TX-816 (note the difference – it’s the rack synth costing 25 times more than the TX81Z back in the day, it wasn’t 4-op; it was 48-op!) rack with 8 angry and over funky DX7’s all contributing to the possible risk of serious speaker damage. Settings inspired by classic house mega hits are of course included. The kind of house music from the 90’s with real deep grooves – Mantronix, Technotronic etc. If you know these references, you’re going to love this refill.

WAY BEYOND SYNCLAVIER 1 & 2
Demo track using WBF R2 as well as Way Beyond Synclavier
Demo track using only the sounds from WBS 2
Unique Synclavier based synthesizer sounds with entirely new programming, patching, combinator design and more. The first refill weighs just below 360 Mb and contains 231 NNXT patches, 700 Mb of samples, 18 FX patches, about 120 bonus patches for rack extensions (A series, Ivoks, Polysix, Predator, Pulsar, PX7 and Revival), Midi out templates for Emagic Unitor 8 / AMT8 as well as 9 carefully designed and programmed Combinator patches. All instrument samples are perfectly looped and everything was multi-sampled at 16/24 bits at 44,1 Khz. The sample content is much larger than the patch content, so there is plenty of room for creating even more patches. The second Synclavier sound pack comes with 50 highly versatile patches – a ‘bread and butter’ collection of sounds to please any taste. Standout sounds are the Klik Synbas patches; excellent house music friendly synth basses; acoustic sounds like strings, pianos, harp, guitar and various bell sounds.
