Here´s a treat from Peff for those of you who are Reason fans. Here’s how he describes it:
My latest obsession has been the new animoog iPad app from moog music, inc. It’s a brilliant example of the tablet platform and touch control surface as a creative and expressive musical instrument. If you haven’t tried animoog, I highly highly highly recommend getting it.
Animoog’s sound generation system is akin to a vector synthesizer, however the main XY pad merges an eight way source selector against a wavetable grain selector. The modulation of the XY pad can be automated allowing you to explore complex variations between wavetables and granular systems. I’ve found that bypassing the modulation “orbits” and “path” parameters and simply controlling these parameters in real-time offers and incredible performance experience. This has inspired me to try to share the experience with Reason 6 users who may not have access to an iPad.
Reason users have had a similar technology available for quite some time in the Malstrom graintable synthesizer where you have two graintable oscillators. The main difference in the experience is the control over the graintables. Animoog allows you to “crossfade” between each of the sources while Malstrom’s architecture is somewhat fixed and allows you to layer the two sources or fade with envelopes, rather than a real time control.
Using a combinator configured with several Malstroms and a multi source fader, I’ve devised a patch that simulates the experience of the animoog sound source. Due to the limitations of using multiple synth devices, the configuration is limited to a monophonic instrument. Despite being mono, it’s fun nonetheless!
The combinator is contained in the example Reason 6 session file and patch archive available here:
Below is a description of the combinator controls and the functions they perform. To simulate the animoog style of table/index control try mapping the modwheel and Index control to an XY pad. This particular patch is designed to create aggressive dubstepish tones, however you can modify graintable selections and other Malstrom parameters to customize the behavior.
Mod Wheel: Multi Source fader control fades between the 8 graintables
Rotary 1 – Index: simultaneously controls all graintable index positions.
Rotary 2 – Shift: simultaneously controls all 8 graintable shift amounts.
Rotary 3 – BitCrush: increasing this knobs applies more bit crushing
Rotary 4 – LFO Rate: controls the wobble rate
Button 1 – Index Mod: applies ramp modulation to the index of all 8 graintables.
Button 2 – Table Sweep: applies LFO to the multi source fader
Button 3 – Crush On: Enables/Disables the Scream 4 bitcrush effect
Button 4 – LFO Enabled: Enables/Disables the modulation of the filter and amp sections
Multi Source Fader control
The eight way source selector relies on an old technique (think power tools for Reason 2.5 era) of using the BV512 Vocoder as an audio to CV converter. When the combi receives a note on message, a Thor polysonic synth is triggered to generate a sine wave. The sine wave acts as a modulator signal on the vocoder and opens specific bands on the vocoder. The CV signals generated by the individual bands control the fader levels of remix mixer. When the pitch of the sine wave is adjusted (by way of the mod wheel), the a different range of bands opens and subsequently opens a different mixer channel. This is an important as aspect of the patch because this is key in understanding the experience of using animoog.
Soundcells are back with a new Refill for Propellerhead’s Reason suite:
“WaveDrummin” is not just another percussion ReFill.
By finding a whole new continent Columbus redrew the map of our planet. Now it´s your turn to do so. By making use of this ReFill you can combine enchanting and haunting rhythms coming from all continents, maybe even from other planets as well as Wavedrummin opens doors to percussive bliss that have never been opened before. At the studio in Central Europe Soundcells recorded their favorite hits and bits coming from the ever popular Wavedrum by Korg while being caught by rhythms coming from distant worlds. The result of this all has become this ReFill, a work of art, a tool that lets you draw your own restyled map of our precious planet.
Realism vs mixability
Lots of samples taken from acoustic, real percussion instruments have the tendency to sound kind of dull in your mixes. The power of their sound often gets mudded by the rest of your instruments. With this in mind Soundcells processed all DSP generated percussion coming from Korg´s Wavedrum Oriental in such a way that the sounds will always sit conveniently in your mixes. Their impact and power will never get lost. Another point that needs to be highlighted is this special stereo knob coming with lots of combinators that works wonders for the mixability of our loops. Check it out!
The sounds of this percussion library are as authentic as you wish and at the same time they can be as electronic as you wish. There is no limit to their sonic possibilities. So whether you are a dance producer druling over techno or electro beats or you are a vegetarian ethno guru spiritualist… Wavedrummin will help you getting there. Check out the demos!
• 115 combinator patches stuffed with inspiring new energy.
• 107 rex loops that range from authentically acoustic to crazy electronic stuff, 20 Kong kits, 20 NNXT patches and 7 Redrum kits.
• 210 single hits to build your own kits from.
• Recorded impact noises coming from Brushes, Rods, Sticks and Fingers to add extra realism to the loops. The combinators carry knobs to control their volumes.
• All single loops and samples are included into this download in Rex and Wave format.
By purchasing this pack you are not restricted to Reason only. However there is a lot more magic to be found within the ReFill.

When Jordan Atkins-Loria (DJ Lucky Date) was introduced to Reason, he instantly recognized the potential of it’s synths and set about to master them. Originally following tutorials he found online, Lucky Date began making his own tutorials which showcased his penchant for modern electro dance synths in Reason. As his tutorials grew in popularity, so did his career as a DJ and Producer.
In just a couple short years, DJ Lucky Date has gone from making his first video tutorial to completing 4 dirty electro dance ReFill sound libraries, charting on Beatport, and massive club and festival gigs as a headlininer.
We met up with Jordan one night in LA where he had a few thousand Angelinos jumping and screaming at Avalon in Hollywood, CA. Before the show he walked us through some of the secrets to his massive sounds and even gave us the patches so we can share them with you all.

“Missing Pieces – Feedback Echo” is a first from entire series of new Refills.
It contains unique collection of Feedback Echo effect combinators.
There is one important big difference between normal and feedback based echo.
Inside those effects audio signal is processed with each echo repetition, so with time it gets more distorted
and depends on feedback amount, it may vanish or transform in to completely new sound.
For example signal can be processed by Neptune, so with each repetition it will be pitched up, until it reach selected filter frequency. Combining with short delay time it can generate unique filter sweep sounds.

Nucleus has released a new version of their magnificent refill Pantheon, this is an evolution of the version II that has been reviewed by us earlier (read the previous review here), here is what they have to say about the new version:
Nucleus SoundLab proudly releases Pantheon III, the next evolution in their series of ultimate Thor ReFills for Propellerhead Reason 5. Pantheon III expands on the concepts and standards set by the first two ReFills with the largest amount of unique Combinators yet. As always, the Pantheon III sound designers continue to reveal their patching secrets with refined and detailed PDF documentation.
Pantheon III is comprised of Combinator and Thor patches created by a dream-team of Reason sound designers. Tom Pritchard, Adam Fielding, Kirke Godfrey, Joseph Mizelle, Clint Grierson Lewis Osborne and Shaun Wallace – Many of these designers have released a number of their own ReFills, both free and commercial. Now all have come together, united by the incredible quality standards of Nucleus SoundLab’s Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen, to create the highest-quality Thor ReFill – ever.
Pantheon III is built from the ground up for both Reason 5 and Record. This means that Kong effects are put to good use, as well as the new Combinator CV inputs. As well, 36 patches have been specifically built for those who own both Record + Reason 5 – though they will also work great for Reason 6 owners. These patches use the Line6 amps and Neptune pitch-shifter to take Thor to a completely new level!
Pantheon III is genre-agnostic – its not a pack of sounds specifically designed to create one sub-genre of electronic music. Instead, the patches inside are applicable to many different styles such as ambient, IDM, trance, electro, dubstep, filmscore and downtempo. Some sounds fall well outside these genre boundaries as well, and are suitable for exploring totally new sonic territory! Inside you’ll find an incredible aural landscape of sounds – such as huge modular chords, ‘workstation’-esque pads, filmscore FX, dirty amped leads, and wavetable arpeggios of all stripes.
- 260 fresh and unique Combinators
- 36 Combinators built for Reason 5 + Record (or Reason 6)
- 300 Thor patches.
- 8 .rps demo songs.
- All Combinator and most Thor rotaries/buttons uniquely mapped.
- All Combinator and Thor patches categorized intelligently.
- PDF Design documentation for each patch, detailing important aspects of its design, inspiration and performance.
Reason Refill maestros Soundcells are at it again
Salad Bar from Soundcells showcases a magnificent collection of Reason patches brought together in this ever growing ReFill since many future patches in the upcoming ReFill range from Soundcells will be added to Salad Bar…
