Let's have a closer look at the demo song made by producer and songwriting team Shep and how Reason Drum Kits can be utilized to change the character of the song.
First of all, here's what the song sounds like originally
This kit consists of the same selection of drums as the original kit but with another treatment. We loaded the original drums into the Gunnerfeldt Producer Kit and - hit - record.
This is a dry kit made up of another selection of drums. They were actually loaded into the Shep Producer kit with the ambience and overhead mics turned down.
Here the Producer Kit "J Freudenheim Psychedelica" is used.
This is a demonstration of a rather angular small kit sound. The snare is tinny and totally dry while the toms are long distance. The kit is tweaked to imitate the sound of a certain band from the 80s.
Shep Multi Kits demo is the the Shep song with all the above kits one after the other. It starts out with the original kit through the intro and then the kit changes every 8 bars or so.

This demo clip demonstrates the sound sculpting capabilities of Reason Drum Kits. It was created using a single kit from Reason Drum Kits. As the track progresses you can hear drastic changes in sound, using only mixing and EQ, nothing else.
