HPRIZM/Hi Priest Top Five
Formed in the fall 1997, united under the credo "disturb the equilibrium." The Anti-Pop Consortium came together as a divergent force to resist the evil empire Hip Hop was slowly becoming.
Their new album "Flourescent Black" is coming soon..

Bass Guitar (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Subtractor Patches / Bass)
Having used the Mini Moog hardware, I often lean towards the Subtractor - this is a good, round, sine wavy bass emulation patch- It can tweaked and processed, while retaining the "presence" that I am looking for from a Bass.
Band Oscillations (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Malstrom Patches / Rhythmic)
The wavetable synthesis of the Maelstrom in tandem with Reason's automatable parameters allow for interesting sound design. This particular patch starts off ata good place and with some additional tweaking you can create a rhythmic synth patch with a lot of bite.
Dejavu (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Thor Patches / Rhythmic)
Thor is a modular beast under the hood with one of my favorite graphic interfaces ever- This particular patch is one that serves well for transitions. The repeating delays have that "Forbidden Planet" sci-fi' feel that sit well in the mix to add dimension
VNS Pizz (Orkester Sound Bank / Strings / Voilins (VNS))
These pizzicato plucked string samples are great for orchestral accents-
Renaissance Tee Bee (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Performance Patches / Boutique)
This is designed as a 303 emulation with a Scream processor on the final stage of the efx chain to give it that low rez grit that many know from the original Roland unit- The Combinator makes this a performable patch by giving you the same controls as the 303 was well known for- Very Fresh!!!
