Zero-G is expanding their range of Reason Refill libraries with the launch of Chemical Synths Refill, a brand new title conceived, assembled and produced by accomplished game and independent movie composer, Jonathan Heslop.
Having already produced Zero-G's Ambient Textures Refill, Jonathan's hands-on appreciation of Propellerhead's Reason software capabilities in his own music projects results in refill libraries which are not only musically influential but which also fully utilize the dedicated synthesizers and samplers contained within the Reason software.
Presented on a DVD-ROM, Chemical Synths is a massive collection of hard-edged synth sounds, with moments of rawness and dirt to inject that creative spike to your musical ideas. This collection comprises basses, leads, riffs, loops, and patches.
There are two refills on the disc. The first contains all the Subtractor, Malstrom, NN-19 and NN-XT patches. The second contains all of the Rex files. There are a total of 400 Rex files which are provided both inside and outside of the second refill so they're accessible for use in all software which can read Rex files (not just Reason users). (Note: The Malstrom and NN-XT patches only work with REASON version 2.0 or later).
Synthesizers used include:
Zero-G's Chemical Synths Refill available now for the retail price of 59.95 GBP / 90 Euro / $109.95 USD.
