Exclamation Refill sound catalog / database

I enjoy assembling tunes with Reason, but any time I want to search for a "sound" whether a refill or Rex file I spend hours looking for something I want. In the end, the energy and enthusiasm wanes and I move on to something else.

If there were a smartly done catalog of sample sounds available we could use the catalog to hone into the instrument, beat, etc. quickly, and it would point to the refills containing the sound.

There would be 2 parts to it. The first will take the existing files and log a miniset of sounds into a file. This is equivalent to Windows saving a picture and a thumbnail. Since the refills have files uniform in length software could pick out the beginning of each file automatically then save only so many seconds of data.

The data could then be sorted into pre-established text versions of what a sound could be: for example by genre (samba drums, jazz drums, etc.) by sounds made (doowap, tweet, chirp, wahwah, etc.) by instruments (alto sax, electronic pad, etc.) and so on.

Then the second part would allow the user to look at the list-read it, and focus on what they want, then listen to the thumbnail subset sound in that group. Once a sound is picked, it points to the refill with the sound needed.

I think the propellerhead team could do this easily. There are some real genius's in that group.
