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
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.
AM3 FREE edition is a "must have" collection
for every Reason users. It provides a great basic
set of vintage and modern analogue synthesizer sounds,
covering arps, bass, leads, pads, mono- and poly keys,
based on nine famous analogue synthesizers.
best: it's completely free!

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:
As its name suggests, this site
is dedicated to Kontakt, the industry standard sampler
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
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.
13 September, Rotterdam: Marco Raaphorst will do a one hour workshop in which he will show step-by-step how to create a Keyboard Loop Player using DrREX and Thor devices in the Combinator.
Loop Player sounds familiair, that's
right, this technique was used in Reasonbanks Refill
Lemon as well. Marco will show how cool LEMON
sounds, and how flexible this configuration
works for live playing.
LEMON is a Reason 4 synth refill & multisample library based
on the sounds of 3 legendary Waldorf synthesizers: Waldorf Attack, Waldorf Microwave XTk and Waldorf micro Q
These synths have the same special character that make
them famous: we tried to keep the original Waldorf sound
while programmed them carefully in NN-XT and Combinator,
so LEMON has developed into a colourful new synth in your
Reason rack... more
