Propellerhead Software has released Reason Drum Kits ReFill ($129), a multi-gigabyte collection of drum kits. The collection offers multiple Velocity levels for capturing the full dynamic range of each instrument, as well as multiple samples at the same Velocity level: NN-XT automatically alternates between sets of similar sounding samples, for greater realism. In addition, the instruments in Reason Drum Kits ReFill were recorded with multiple microphones, and each microphone has its own channel in the Reason mixer.
Reason Drum Kits ReFill comes with 17 preset kits created from more than 10,000 samples. The kits are divided into genres with styles covering pop/indie, funk/soul, and rock/metal. Style templates are also included. The DVD holds 16-bit and 24-bit versions of the collection, as well as demo songs, MIDI files, and kits for Reason's ReDrum module.
