Propellerhead Releases Ryan Greene Alt Drums ReFills for Reason
Three new Creator Series ReFills bring renowned rock and punk producer's drum sounds into the hands of any musician
Ryan Greene Alt Drums comes as three separate volumes, each containing three drum kits with several microphone setups and alternate snares. Each of the three ReFills comes with preset patches for Reason's Combinator device, with three different microphone setups: close mics, no ambience mics, and all mics; Producer Combinator patches with dry, overhead, and room microphone setups; Individual Kit Pieces for the NN-XT sampler; effects patches; as well as 100+ drum track MIDI files created by Ryan Greene. The sounds are fully produced; finished drum kits with kick drums with big bottom and snare drums with punch. Thanks to the premade patches using different microphone setups and production techniques, no additional mixing is required from users to get a great sound that sits right in the mix.
"All the sounds have been tested in real applications throughout the recording process to make sure they hold up under heavy fire, which basically means up against huge guitar and bass sounds," says Ryan Greene.
Ryan Greene Alt Drums ReFills Series:
- Alt Drums I
The first Alt Drums ReFill features Ryan Greene's own Pork Pie kit, used on a lot of Greene's Punk/Fat Wreck Chords productions throughout the years, as well as a versatile Gretsch kit and a deep sounding vintage Leedy kit.
