Rich Full Strings (Factory Sound Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Orchestral)

This is a fantastic string pad that actually sounds realistic. When mixed properly you can create a believable string orchestra in your song.

Dodger Bass (Factory Sound Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Bass / Synth Bass)

A naturally fuzzy bass, I like to effect it through a Scream Distortion. Clean or abused this bass patch is perfect for genres such as techno, house or even some rock.

Ageless Exposition (Factory Sound Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Pads / Evolving)

This is one of the very first pads I fell in love with. It has a very timeless feel to it. I like how it evolves it generates notes above the actual note your playing. It makes a great effect when playing chords.

Hot All Mics (586 34) (Reason Drum Kits / Drum Kits Patches / Preset Kits / Multi Out / All Mics (ALL) / Rock)

I use this drum kit in almost all of my demos. As far as a preset kit goes, this one is the best sounding rock kit. It is easy to load and is a great sounding drum kit. I use this kit for all sorts of styles, from rock to ballads.

4am Bass (Factory Sounds Bank / ALL Instrument Patches / Bass / Synth Bass)

This is another of my favorite bass sounds. It is smooth and very dance like. It has a “Postal Service” type sound. I have used it is several songs of my own. It adds a thick, rich and dark tone to the bass end of the sound. This sound is absolutely perfect for plug and play. You could spend time tweaking the sound but I promise you will enjoy it as is.
