Reader John Isley sends us some info on how he is using the Cyclone ReFill in his work.
"I've been diggin into those Cyclone Refill sounds and I'm having a blast with them. I am working on a huge project incorporating Logic, Reason, Arkaos VJ and a bunch of other MIDI, Audio and hardware stuff. I'm loving having your sounds and the Cyclone combinators to use as a starting point. They're complimenting my personal programming very nicely!
I'm also using the Cyclone sounds in some live performances as well and have been getting some good feedback from other people about them. I'm really enjoying the playability of the sounds - they're very very nice. "

Praise for the Cyclone Wind Synth Refill from internationally renowned saxophonist, composer and EWI player, Seamus Blake:
"It has been a source of great inspiration for me. I use a Cyclone combinator as a template and then plug other sounds into it. It works fantastic. Thank you. I now like Reason so much that I added a second laptop into my setup just to incorporate Reason."
Thanks, Seamus! We can't wait to hear what you do with it!
After months of programming and tweaking, I'm pleased to announce our first commercial ReFill - the Cyclone Wind Synthesizer for Reason. I wanted to create a Combinator that is a tool kit for Reason for wind controllers. The main idea is to load any sound into a Combinator and have it gain a great degree of breath response without having to reprogram each and every sound.
I've largely succeeded with this ReFill, and you get 50 presets and an extensive user guide to get you started.
