Propellerhead Software Introduces Reason Electric Bass ReFill
Eight classic basses, Hypersampled with selectable bass rigs and switchable signal chains offer the most dynamic, natural sounding bass sounds available anywhere
Reason Electric Bass consists of a number of Combinator patches for Reason 4 with samples of eight classic electric bass guitars: Fender Jazz Bass, Fender Precision Bass (flatwound), Gibson Les Paul, Rickenbacker 4001, Gibson EB-0, Kay Hollowbody, MusicMan Stingray Fretless and Fender Precision Bass (roundwound). Each patch also contains a number of performance embellishments like release samples, hammer-ons, and glissandos yielding the most organic sounding bass instrument on any platform. The product ships on two DVDs containing both 16-bit and 24-bit versions of the sound library. The 16-bit version is lighter on the CPU and is suitable for composing and production work, while the 24-bit version is good to use at final mixing. The two are easily interchanged.
All instruments were captured using Propellerhead Software's Hypersampling method. To capture every nuance of each instrument's sonic character, each was recorded at multiple velocity levels, using both direct inputs and multiple sets of microphones through two different dedicated bass rigs. With all the signals available separately in Reason, Reason Electric Bass users can select and mix between combinations of mics and direct from pickups to truly attain that "live bass player" sound.
"If you thought bass sounds were just bass sounds, think again," says Kristoffer Wallman, Content Manager at Propellerhead Software. "These instruments are gritty, soulful, alive. Substituting Reason Electric Bass for your bass tracks will have dramatic positive affects your computer-based music production, really making them come alive and breathe."
Reason Electric Bass, the fourth in the series of hypersampled ReFills from Propellerhead, fills out the "backline" of the rhythm section, alongside
Reason Pianos and Reason Drum Kits-providing users with amazingly realistic foundations for any style of music.

The Reason Electric Bass ReFill will be available from Propellerhead dealers worldwide as well as online through Propellerhead's Propshop on May 28, 2008.
MSRP is EUR €120 / USD $129.
