Nucleus SoundLab has released DataBank Three, a collection of 100 patches for the Massive software synthesizer by Native Instruments.
DataBank Three continues the legacy of Nucleus SoundLab’s popular line of Native Instruments Massive presets. Each of the 100 patches delves into untouched frontiers of sound design, while maintaining the extreme attention to detail the DataBank series is known for.
DataBank Three is still primarily produced by Nucleus SoundLab Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen. However, some new faces have also contributed patches to give a different flavour to the overall set. Adam Fielding and Shaun Wallace have been sound designer mainstays in Nucleus SoundLab’s Reason ReFills for years. In DataBank Three they apply that experience to Massive with their own characteristic style. The result is an eclectic mix of pulsing arpeggios, complex modular sequences, mile-wide chordal pads, haunting plucked strings and piercing dance leads. As usual, no one electronic genre is represented in DataBank Three – you’ll find the sounds inside can work great in a variety of contexts.
DataBank Three features
100 Presets for NI Massive.
All presets utilitze all 8 Macro Knobs uniquely.
Each preset fully categorized.
Extensive notes and documentation inside most presets.
Compatible with both Macintosh and PC.
Requires Massive 1.3 or higher.
The DataBank Three soundset is available to purchase for $29 USD. Until May 24th, 2013 all DataBank Three purchases will include a 15-patch bonus unfinished ‘out-take’ set by Jeremy Janzen. These patches are completely unique from the full product, and are limited-edition – they will never be made available in any other way.
Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Reason Wizardry Season Three, a compilation of the final eleven issues from the Reason Wizardry series of advanced video tutorials for Propellerhead Reason, compiled into a comprehensive video tutorial product.
Through Reason Wizardry Season Three, you will continue to benefit from the vast sound design experience of Nucleus SoundLab Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen. Since 2005, Jeremy has pushed the boundaries of sound design in Reason – first by implementing 100% unique Combinators in a ReFill; followed by the first commercial effects Refill; and finally by introducing detailed and educational PDF documentation for each patch. Season Three is the biggest ever – it contains 11 issues and over 8.5 hours of invaluable Reason knowledge!
Reason Wizardry Season Three isn’t meant to rehash the basics. It won’t show you how to create a pattern in Redrum or how to connect a Thor to the mixer. Instead, by assuming each user had already read the manual and has a basic knowledge – Reason Wizardry skips directly to the good stuff. Each issue is packed with info on how to get the very most out of Reason devices, how to create your own sounds that step away from the cliches, and the not-so-obvious tricks that will save you time in your productions.

11 full-length video tutorials.
Consists of over 8.5 hours of video and weighs in at 4gb.
Captured at crisp 800×600 resolution (some issues are 1280×720 HD).

Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Reason Wizardry Season Two, a compilation of Reason Wizardry video tutorials.
Through Reason Wizardry Season Two, you will continue to benefit from the vast sound design experience of Nucleus SoundLab Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen. Since 2005, Jeremy has pushed the boundaries of sound design in Reason – first by implementing 100% unique Combinators in a Refill; followed by the first commercial effects Refill; and finally by introducing detailed and educational PDF documentation for each patch. In keeping with this history of innovative sound design and sharing knowledge, Reason Wizardry Season Two goes even farther to walk you through Reason’s inner depths.
Reason Wizardry Season Two isn’t meant to rehash the basics. It won’t show you how to create a pattern in Redrum or how to load a sample in NN-19. Instead, by assuming each user had already read the manual and has a basic knowledge – Reason Wizardry skips directly to the good stuff. Each issue is packed with info on how to get the very most out of Reason devices, how to create your own sounds that step away from the cliches, and the not-so-obvious tricks that will save you time in your productions.

Nucleus SoundLab has announced Filter Research 3 ReFill, a collection of effect Combinators for Reason 6 by Propellerhead Software.
Propellerhead Reason 6 has finally brought together audio inputs, live sampling, and loop playback together in a single product. With all this new audio content flying through the Reason ecosystem, now is the perfect time to introduce Filter Research 3 – Nucleus SoundLab’s third product in their innovative series of effects ReFills. This package of evolved effects once again goes beyond the ordinary. Filter Research 3 is packed full of effects that are not only useful production tools, but are often musically inspirational as well.
The first two Filter Research ReFills created the market for creative effect devices in Reason – but both have now been easily surpassed by Filter Research 3. This new ReFill has been built from the ground up for Propellerhead Reason 6, with every single Combinator using at least one Reason 6 effect device – which are of course Pulveriser, The Echo and Alligator. Also new to Filter Research 3, all patches now feature unique modulation mapping for the Pitch-Bend Wheel. That is of course in addition to unique mappings for all four Combinator Rotaries, Buttons and the Modwheel as usual.
Filter Research 3′s standard Combinators are a stunning selection that run the sonic gamut from MIDI-triggered delays, psychotic beat repeaters, guitar amp multi-FX, tuned resonantors, as well as subtle production-ready EQ and Saturation patches. But the centerpiece of this aural experience is once again the Epic Combinators. These six patches by Jeremy Janzen are truly Reason sound design at its finest – . Each Epic Combinator is outfitted with up to 24 macro rotaries in order to give the best possible control experience, while maintaining an elegant simplicity that anyone can take advantage of. If that still sounds intimidating, over sixty minutes of video documentation is included describing how to get the most out of all six patches.
Filter Research 3 ReFill features
200 effect Combinators included.
6 Epic Combinators – including 60+ minutes of HD video documentation.
Each patch uses a at least one new Reason 6 effect device – Pulveriser, The Echo and Alligator.
Each Combinator has all 4 rotaries/buttons uniquely assigned – as well as the Pitch-Bend/Modwheel.
All Combinators created from scratch.
130+ page PDF manual describing each Combinator in-depth.
