Schiedmayer Celeste (Abbey Road Keyboards / Instrument Patches / Preset Patches / Celeste Close Up)
Love the realness of this instrument. The samples themselves really capture an organic quality.
ClockenSpiel (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor Patches / PolySynths)
Perfect for adding a soft glisten to a warm track. A touch of dampened reverb or a bit of delay adds a lot.
Electric Piano 1 (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Poly Synths )
I really like how soft and smooth this patch is. Thor's built in effects are great.
Stereolab Vibes (Reason Factory Sound Bank / All Instrument Patches / Bells and Mallets)
I love how 'live' this patch sounds. It adds a great deal of depth to a dead track.
DnB Bass 1 (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Malstrom Patches / Bass)
An amazing synth bass. I love how 'wide' it sounds and how it embodies a soft yet aggressive texture.
Ming's Top Five
As one half of seminal break beat duo Ming+FS, Ming has released over thirty 12"s and four full length albums.
Pooley Reason Top 5
Kristopher Pooley produces bands, writes for Film and TV, and tours with an impressive list of bands and artists.
Stenchman Malstrom Patches
Legend goes… Stenchman was created in 1985 by rogue scientists trying to splice the genes of a Friesian cow and a severely impaired young gypsy.
Nat Motte's Top Five
While keeping their tongues buried deep in their cheeks, 3OH!3 drops sucker-punch vocals over hard-edged beats.
