9 Soundware has announced the release of Chimera R, a set of patches for the Redrum drum sampler within Propellerhead Reason.
The theme of the sound set is hybridism. Its origins are in five previously released 9 Soundware titles. The drum kits are based on samples from the Heartbeat and Concussion EXS24 sound sets, as well as patches from the Fire Juggler, Vortex, and Ax releases for the Thor, Malström, and Subtractor synthesizers, respectively.
Chimera R features
50 Redrum kits of Chimera R are based on 309 samples. Included are 293 samples from the Heartbeat and Concussion sound sets that have not been mapped in these patches.
50 Redrum patches divided into four categories:
Human Heartbeats (based on samples from Heartbeat) – Human/synthesis hybrid. The idea behind this category is the transformation of recordings of the human heart and other internal organs with signal processing.
Found Objects (based on samples from Concussion) – Found object collisions. This category is based on acoustic impact sounds created entirely with found objects.
Synthetic (based on resampled patches from Fire Juggler, Vortex, and Ax) – The Synthetic category consists of Redrum kits that feature resampled drum patches from the Fire Juggler, Vortex, and Ax sound sets (for Thor, Malström, and Subtractor, respectively). The sub categories of drum kit components emulated by the patches include Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Hi-Hat (Closed, Open, and Pedal), Tom, Crash Cymbal, Ride Cymbal, Side Stick, and Hand Clap.
Chimera – The Chimera Redrum kits combine samples from the Human Heartbeats, Found Objects, and Synthetic categories. These patches also feature sample playback manipulation. This category consists of 10 Redrum kits.

Soundcells has announced the release of Simple Sampling, a ReFill for Reason 4 and higher.
At first Soundcells started working on a fun ReFill based on a Stylophone only, which was recorded for sampling purposes. Besides programming a patch that matches the real thing, the NNXT sampler in Reason was tweaked to go some extra steps and some fat funky clavinet-style patches caught by surprise.
While producing the Stylofunk mini track (apart from the loop it’s entirely based on stylophone samples) some extra cool stuff was added to this ReFill: a “single-sample-rhodes”, a “single-sample-piano”, a “single-sample-kalimba” and a lot of other nifty stuff… “Simple Sampling” gradually turned into a product full of “simple samples” coming from different sound sources.
If you are looking for sampling like it was done in the old days instead of patches with hundreds of individual samples, you will love this ReFill. Super quick loading patches, very cpu-friendly and most of all full of character and very charming…
Simple Sampling features
101 combinator patches for many different styles of music, subdivided in 6 folders: Bass, Drum Machines, FX & Atmo, Keys, Leads, Pads.
A note by note (a2 – e4) sampled and looped Stylophone including it´s typical release click.
“Simple Samples” coming from the Rhodes Mark 1, Doepfer MS404, Supernova 2, microKORG, G2, VL1…
The modules folder contains the basic NNXT patches which are used for the combinator sounds.
10 Rex loops, 5 Redrum kits.
Simple Sampling is available for the introductory price of 14.90 EUR through October 2010 (regular price 19.90 EUR).
