Oh Drat releases Seasoning Lite for Reason

Oh Drat has announced its Seasoning Lite, a free Reason Combinator for automatic dynamic toplines.

Seasoning lite is an introduction – a sneak preview, if you will – to one of the many concepts we’re working on for our upcoming series of sample packs, refills and more. It’s an automatic percussion device that you can simply drop into a project, and thanks to our complicated routing design, press and hold combinations of notes to apply dynamic, evolving toplines to your beats.

Oh Drat Seasoning Lite
Seasoning Lite is a Reason combinator that will automatically, and rhythmically, trigger percussion loops simply by pressing and holding a key. You can play ‘chords’ to get completely organic percussion sounds.

Seasoning Lite features

  • Press and hold any white key from C2-E6 on your keyboard to hear the patterns.
  • Patterns are grouped together by sound, with four patterns that you can switch between and overlay for each.
  • Open and closed hi hats and cymbals are placed at the bottom for one handed playing, bleeps and other percussion elements higher up.
  • By default Combinators load with ‘Run Pattern Devices’ switched off – to play without running your sequencer, just press the button on the left signified by the arrow.
  • Four effects controls: Reverb, Delay, Flanger and Filter are available by the macro knobs and have been designed to give you a worry-free cool sound.

The combinator is a free download at Oh Drat.
