This collection of 50 Kong-driven Combinator patches goes way beyond 909 and 808 samples and brings a broad tonal palette that will make this your go-to resource for making the fattest and grooviest of beats.
As well as huge gut-punching electronic kits, you’ll find warm multi-sampled snares, dynamic dark hi-hats and deep vintage kicks inspiring you to create realistic breaks and fills. If you like to program beats with the solid, clean, up-front sound of analogue backed up with a subtle hand-crafted vintage sounding loop (complete with vinyl crackle!) then you’ve found your ReFill.
These 50 combinators have all been creatively constructed to fully harness the power of Reason’s built in compressors, EQ and tonal shapers - you’ll find some really interesting dynamic patches here, where successive hits sound subtly different. Within each of these kits you’ll find ready-to-go controls to sculpt and transform your sound. Fire up pumping New York compression, finalisation and vintage effects at the touch of a button! Most kits feature 2 kicks and 2 snares to inspire dynamics and layering, and are thoughtfully and consistently laid out across Kong’s 16 pads.
Sounds Like Drums is all about letting you focus on making your beats rather than worrying about the engineering. Processing and production has been done for you although of course this can be easily bypassed if you want to get super geeky about it.
The audio examples were made in Reason using only the Sounds Like Drums ReFill for all drum and percussion sounds - no additional effects apart from limiting on the final mix
