   We are 10 years old!

Reasonbanks is now celebrating its 10-years anniversary!

How quickly time flies! It seems to us that it was only yesterday when we launched reasonbanks.com in March 2003. We were all so excited about the upcoming Reason 2.5! :)

One decade is a long time in the life of a soundware development company.

We would like to celebrate somehow our birthday... but instead of musing on the past, we now give you a little part of our history and release Sonic-O-Tool as a free refill!

Sonic-O-Tool - if you remember this name, it means that you most probably are a Reason-veteran. This product was our very first commercial refill and it was originally developed to Reason 1 in 2002.

Sonic-O-Tool is a real classic and a must have for every Reason user.

You can download it now for free, enjoy!:)

   Changes in our webshops...

Important changes in our webshops

This is to announce that from 1 March 2013 kontaktbanks and reasonbanks will be divided into independent selling platforms, and our designated soundbank types will be developed and released separately.

Following this reorganisation the product licences will only contain one format: you can buy the refill version in the reasonbanks' webshop, while the kontakt versions will be available only in kontaktbanks' webshop.

These changes are not retrospective: licences that were purchased before 1 March 2013 will continue to contain both Kontakt and Reason refill versions, and both versions of products so purchased will remain available as well.

   PinkNoise Studio proudly presents: VOYAGER

This is it. After such a long development, VOYAGER refill has been finished and is available now!

VOYAGER is an analogue synth refill, based on the sounds of the famous Minimoog Voyager synthesizer.

 

26 January 2012

   PinkNoise Studio is 15 years old now

Yes. It's a long time… when we started, there were no soft-samplers in existence. We worked on hardware sampler cards which carried a very limited capacity.

Gravis Ultrasound, Turtle Beach Maui, Tropez, Pinnacle, Terratec EWS64… does anyone remember them at all?

These samplers educated us, and we have learned a lot of things - for example how to optimize our libraries and how to fit a sampled instrument into 4, 8 or 32 MB of RAM. They also taught us that quality always prevails over quantity.

Since then the world of sampling has dramatically changed. The hardware samplers slowly but surely disappeared. Now we use software samplers - they provide us with practically unlimited capacity, and carry so many features that we have never been able to imagine before. We have terabytes of libraries - no limits.

But we never forget where we are coming from and we remain committed to our fundamental value: quality must win over quantity.

OK, that's all for pathos...

   Analogue Monsters again...

23 November 2010

New site launched!

Well, strictly speaking it's not a Reason related news, but today is a great day for us: after many months of planning and developing, we launch a new sister site of reasonbanks:

kontaktbanks.com has opened today!

As its name suggests, this site is dedicated to Kontakt, the industry standard sampler from Native Instruments.

At the same time we are proud to present Revolver for Kontakt, our very first library available in native Kontakt format.

The Kontakt version of Revolver is not just a conversion! It has been entirely rebuilt starting from the scratch, and thanks to the Kontakt's advanced scripting technology we were able to create a software instrument that sounds and behaves as a real hardware!

We have also made some improvements on reasonbanks, most of which are imperceptible, but believe us: we have devoted a lot of work to it. You can notice that the design has been changed a bit as well. We hope you like it.

By the way: from now on you can follow us on

  Goodbye DVD!

The commerce of CD and DVD versions of our products (that need physical shipping) will be discontinued from 3 May 2010.

Thanks to the general use of broadband internet the disk versions have become obsolete in the past few years.

So we will only distribute our refills in downloadable format , and we believe this is the most comfortable option for all of us.

 

 

New bundled packs - you can save 25%

In addition to the BIG BUNDLE, we created two more bundled packages, as we think these refills belong together and somehow they complement well each other.

Waldorf Bundle: ORANGE3 + LEMON

The ultimate package for Waldorf fans. Three Waldorf synths in one pack, based on 3.7 GB sample source. You get also the Keyboard Loop player as a bonus.

 

Eric's Bundle: Analog Night + Quadrasynth Story

Two "classic" NN-XT synth refill from Eric Corminier, aka "reason.fan".
A great collection for every musician, and for French people, it is a must have! ;-)

Bundled versions are available in our e-shop.
