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.

In modern molecular biology, the genome is the entirety of an organism´s hereditary information. It is encoded either in DNA or in case of this fine ReFill it´s the AMIGA1200 encoded in Reason´s NNXT samples. The AMIGA1200 (code-named ‘Channel Z‘) with it´s 8-bit Paula chip was extremely popular among producers all over the world in the early nineties. “Digital Genome” picks up the thread where Soundcells left with “bitBUMPER deluxe” with it´s funky, housy and spacy lo-fi character! Warm, gritty, sleezy, dangerous and nostalgic are the keywords. This ReFill can be used as a full workstation since everything the old Amiga had to offer is in there: basses, keys, lead synths, warm pads and enough drums and percussion to eat your heart out. And do not forget the wonderful FX section. The 170+ Genome combinators are conveniently built up with the right button functionality. Version 2 adds 25 new combinator patches, some minor additions/changes in detail as well as great new backdrops…
Make your dance music sparkle with Reason Disco School, the new ReFill from Propellerhead Software that recreates the classic sounds of disco. There will be fever. Propellerhead Software has released Reason Disco School – a new ReFill that explores the classic sounds that came out of three of Disco’s biggest capitals: New York, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
Ranging from old school Philadelphia layers of lush strings, through club beats of New York in the late 1970?s to the slick styles of Los Angeles, Disco School features six songs in three different keys, from simple two-chord progressions to more complex themes.
All sounds of Reason Disco School are sourced from the complete songs; each composed, arranged and produced for Reason Disco School. The musical elements – bass, drums, guitars, strings, keyboards, percussion and horns – are provided in Propellerhead’s tempo-independent REX format, designed to fit into modern club tracks or old-school hip hop productions.
Included in the ReFill is also a collection of multisampled drums for use with Reason’s NN-XT sampler and powerful Combinator device. Additionally, for club music, Disco School comes packed with electronic drums, claps and toms designed by electronic music artist, DJ and producer Sharooz.
On top of all the disco grooves and loops, Reason Disco School provides a collection of instruments based on the ElectroMechanical ReFill (a free downloadable ReFill for any registered Reason owner). Reverb and distortion effects are included, as well as “needle drop” snippets of sampled grooves to round out the library.
The Reason Disco School ReFill is available now at the Propellerhead site for US $99/€79 EUR.

“Greenhouse” is an awesome ReFill which is based on samples coming from the popular Synplant software synthesizer which is without any doubt one of the most innovative plugins of recent years. 125+ combinator patches provide an insight into the great and highly characterful sound capabilities Synplant has to offer. Greenhouse patches sound deep and murky, sometimes wishful and dreamy, but overall atmospheric and full of the typical and widely acclaimed Synplant character… In addition, some “One-Shot-FX” kits are included to let you produce some glitchy electro beats. The 24 bit samples were recorded through an analog mixing console to bring the “real world” flavour into our digital world – ready-to-use within this ReFill. And let´s not forget about he 35+ drum samples (as well as 11 Rex files highly processed with additional EQing, compressing…) from the MicroTonic PlugIn which has been recorded the same way as the Synplant samples…
- 129 combinator patches full of the typical and widely acclaimed Synplant character.
- Deep, murky, evil but also wishful and dreamy are the main keywords.
- 114 NNXT patches containing the basic sounds which were used for the combinators, 7 Redrum kits.
- 432 Synplant samples, 392 MB uncompressed.
- 35+ drum samples & 11 Rex loops coming from the MicroTonic PlugIn.
