Rock Kit RDK (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Redrum Drum Kits / RDK Kits)
I use this kit all the time when I am working on demos for the artists I produce.
Raw_Polysix_Sub (Reason Factory Sound Bank / NN-19 Sampler Patches / Synth Raw Elements)
You can hear this patch in almost every big chorus part that I track.
Rickenbacker N&B DI+A|Sub+A|U47+F|Coles (Reason Electric Bass / Bass Patches / Preset Bass / -Rickenbacker 4001 (Pick))
Along with the Rock Kit RDK, this patch is used on almost every demo song I put together.
WhiteEagleBsT (Reason Factory Sound Bank / NN-XT Patches / Rhythmic)
This patch has a great flow to it and adds just enough movement to a track without being too busy.
Bassic (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Malstrom Patches / Bass)
This is one of my favorites for electro stuff. You can hear this bass sound on "Catastrophe" by Forever The Sickest Kids (Universal Motown).
