We all know how powerful the synths are in Reason - there are worlds of possibilities in Malström, Subtractor, and especially Thor. However, what if the sound we want can only be found on a certain model vintage synth?
Did you know that the Reason Factory Sound Bank contains raw waveform samples of a wide range of vintage synths?
Right Under Your Nose...
As you can see in the screen shot on the right, the RFSB (as of Reason 5 at least) contains raw waveform samples from:
You can find them here:
Reason Factory Sound Bank -> NN19 Sampler Patches -> Synth Raw Elements. In the 'Synth Raw Elements' folder, you will find one NN19 patch for each waveform as you can see below.
That's really handy when you start designing a new sound. So the next time you are pining for a MiniMoog or Prophet V sound, try starting with an actual sample of a MiniMoog or Prophet V, straight from the Reason Factory Sound Bank.
The sounds are hiding right under your nose!
