Propellerheads Offers Bonus Electromechanical Refill

Vintage Keyboard Sounds Free for Reason Users

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN • 13 MAY 2004 – Propellerhead Software, the Swedish company behind acclaimed products such as Reason, ReCycle and ReBirth, today announced that beginning May 12, 2004, the 'ElectroMechanical' Refill loops collection would be included in every Reason package. Registered Reason 2.5 users can download the 'ElectroMechanical' Refill collection for free from the Propellerhead Software website http://www.propellerheads.se.

The bonus 'ElectroMechanical' ReFill is a collection of high quality and previously unreleased multi-sampled keyboard instruments: Rhodes mkI & mkII, Wurlitzer ep100 & ep200, Hammond Model A organ, Hohner Clavinet D6 and Hohner Pianet. Each instrument is represented in 5 to 10 patches. The ElectroMechanical ReFill will come with documentation and demo songs on the CD.

"We found that our users are constantly thirsty for new sounds. With Reason's advanced sampling technology it is easy to come up with a solution for them with highly sought after vintage sounds that broaden Reason's sonic palette," commented Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO of Propellerhead Software. "The high quality sample patches are very convenient to use, easy on processor resources, sound absolutely great and make Reason even more versatile than ever."

About ReFills

The ReFill format packs instrument patches, samples, audio files and REX material in one compact file. In fact so compact that the combined size of all material packed in a ReFill is reduced by up to 50% through non-lossy compression. ReFills are a convenient and space economical way of storing dedicated Reason libraries.

The ElectroMechanical Refill content update can either be downloaded for free from the Propellerhead website or a CD is available for a small shipping fee.
