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.
