The Refills Are Still Available!

I spent a big chunk of the morning going back through four years of posts here on Reason Patch A Day and taking down patches and links. It was a bittersweet process and brought back a bunch of great memories. If you were here for any of the last four years, thanks again for being a part of such a great and strange experiment.

Please note, I did try to leave up posts for Bragware songs, equipment and refill reviews, and other bits that I thought might still be useful. It makes the blog a little disjointed, but I didn't want to erase everything.

The posts and patches are gone, but the refills are still available if you want them. Please see below for details and remember that each refill is "filled" manually. Depending on the time of your order, it may take me an hour or two to get you your download link, but rest assured, you'll get it!

Reason Patch A Day Archive, Four Year Refill

I merged all of the patches from Reason Patch A Day into one, giant refill that covers all four years of the blog. There are refills that contain more sounds, of course, but the size of this thing still surprises me with well over 1,405 patches and sounds.

  • 184 Bass Patches
  • 64 Combinators: Effects
  • 33 Combinators: Instruments
  • 66 Effect Patches
  • 3 Kong Kits
  • 322 Pad Patches
  • 355 Percussion Patches
  • 67 REX Loops
  • 142 Synth Patches
  • 12 Sampler Patches
  • 157 Samples
  • 5 Yamaha Drum Machine Kits

The Four Year Archive is available to anyone who donates $3 or more to the blog. That's the same price as if you had donated $1 per refill in the past and I'm willing to go back and look through previous purchases to make sure you get caught up, if that makes sense. It wouldn't hurt to remind me if you had purchased previous refills, if you only plan on sending me a dollar or two, but as you already know, I really do appreciate any support I get. Thanks so much!

Kick Toolkit Refill, v1.1

And, if you haven't already purchased it, the Kick Toolkit Refill has been updated recently to include even more analog kick drum samples.

The Kick Toolkit Refill contains:
  • Kick Drum WAVs: 400 unique kick drum samples created using the Jomox Mbase 11 Analog Bass Drum Module, a single voice analog synthesizer fine-tuned for producing a variety of bass drum sounds. Each kick was created specifically for this refill and was sampled at 24-bit resolution, with no outside processing, for the cleanest possible signal and sound.
  • Effects: The Kick Toolkit Refill contains 38 effect patches, using Reason's Scream, RV7000, Pulverizer, and other effect units.
  • Mini-Combis: One or two device Combinators designed specifically for the purpose of manipulating and sculpting kick drum patches and samples. Each Mini-Combi has been programmed with front panel control ranges designed for its limited task to make final tweaks fast and easy. A number of Mini-Combis have also been included to provide presets for devices that do not normally allow for loading and saving patches (ex. BV512 Vocoder). 11 mini-Combis are included, along with 43 additional presets, providing help with compression, equalization, and other general purposes.

The Kick Toolkit Refill costs just $5 and can be purchased using the sidebar link at the top of the page.

Bernard Childcare Trust Refill

And lastly, don't forget that you can still purchase the Bernard Childcare Trust, a collaborative refill from some great sound designers and terrific people. If you didn't already know, proceeds from the refill go to James Bernard's children, so in addition to getting some new sounds for your collection, you're purchase does some good for a valued member of our community.

Oh wow, how did I miss this!? You've got dedication, man. I'm not sure I would have made it 6 months.
Thanks so much for the mention of the BCCT refill at the end - for those interested: that particular refill is offline at the moment but will return very soon - (some minor site issues to work out.)
More in a comment on the previous post.
