Make Better Beats in Propellerhead Reason

Reason Drum Kits is an excellent set of meticulously sampled kits that can really bring an authentic feel to your Reason tracks. Here, Hollin Jones gives you a hands-on demo.  

Reason Drum Kits is a great collection of carefully sampled real acoustic drum kits covering a range of styles, all in a Reason-friendly format so they can be easily played from your MIDI keyboard or any other input device. In this short video from the course Reason Rack Extensions 101: Backline Rig V2 Explored, Hollin Jones gets hands-on with it to show you just how good it sounds - it's like having real drums in your productions. 

Available as part of the Backline Rig bundle for a hefty discount or separately from Propellerheads' online store, this ReFill is relatively small in size and kind to your CPU but offers both immediate gratification and extensive tweakability to let you get the most out of tailoring the drum kits to suit your tracks. Be sure to check out the other videos in this course, which cover the rest of the instruments and sounds in the Backline Rig V2 collection and show you how they can be used to create a whole track from start to finish.
