A massive supply of exquisite drum samples with unprecedented sonic realism and detail.
Want lively, realistic sounding drums without using loops or hiring a session drummer? The Reason Drum Kits ReFill gives you gigabytes of masterfully multisampled, perfectly playable, multiple-output drum kits for Reason's NN-XT sampler. The objective was the creation of a drum tool with the emphasis on realism. Propellerhead took utmost care in applying all the trusted and proven techniques for live drum recording, using the appropriate blend of vintage and ultra modern technology.
The Reason Drum Kits ReFill is an extensive DVD-ROM library of lifelike, multisampled drum kits mapped out across your MIDI keyboard, but with an important twist: these sampled drums actually sound like actual drums. Reason Drum Kits features 17 unique NN-XT kits styled for vintage soul, indie-style pop and hard rock, plus 50 additional ReDrum kits and an insane amount of MIDI files, song files, and style templates to give you guidance and inspiration.
Note: ReFills do not work in standalone—they require a full version of Reason to operate. (See “What is a ReFill below)
Mix your own drums
All the instruments in the kits were captured at multiple velocity levels using multiple microphones--all of which are represented on separate channels in Reason's mixer, whenever you load up a kit. So by adjusting the levels of the Close, Overhead, and Ambience microphones, you can fully shape and control the sound of your drum kits. You can even add compression, EQ, or effects to individual drums. Essentially, this is like putting a top-notch recording room, drum kit, and drummer right into your computer.
Build your own kits
Putting together your own personal drum kits using individual drums, hi-hats and cymbals from different kits is a breeze. Lifting an Ambient Snare from one kit, and an Overhead Tom from another is not a problem; Reason lets you copy and paste instruments and all their related samples and velocity layers in one go, allowing you to create drum kits containing up to a thousand samples with just a few mouse clicks.
Forget multisampling—this is hypersampling!
The Reason Drum Kits were recorded in acoustical environments tailor-made for drums, using the finest blend of vintage and modern technology. In order to capture all the details and nuances of the featured kits, each instrument was recorded at all possible velocity levels, from a variety of distances and positions.
So when you hammer out a 2-handed snare fill on your MIDI keyboard, you can be sure the same sample is never triggered twice in a row; all mic positions and velocity levels included, the Reason Drum Kits use around 70 samples for one single key.Which adds up to about 800 different samples in one kit! Which makes 10,000 drum and cymbal samples and an infinte number of extremely versatile, extremely dynamic sounding drum kits that are a joy to play.

What is a ReFill?
Even if you haven't come across the term ReFill before, as a Reason user you most likely use ReFills daily. All sounds, patches, loops and grooves included with Reason come in ReFill format, as both the Factory and Orkester Sound Banks are ReFills.
When using ReFills with Reason, you can load patches for any of the devices included in Reason, as well as REX files, samples in WAV or AIFF format, MIDI files and Reason song files.
One advantage of containing sounds in ReFills is that audio samples are compressed to about half their original file size when stored in ReFills, with no loss of audio quality. Samples contained in ReFills also load faster in Reason.
