NewYorkCity (Reason Factory Soundbank / Subtractor Patches / Polysynths)
Great bell base. Take off the resonance and add a tiny amount of FM and you have the same sound that was used for the lead melody in Michael Cassette's track "Shadows Movement".
Jupiter 4 (Reason Factory Soundbank / Subtractor Patches / Polysynths)
Great for adding analog feeling to any track.
Easysynth (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Synth Poly)
Take the decay down slightly and add some release, and you get very nice ethereal plucked synth.
Ambient Bamboo Valley (Reason Factory Sound Bank / Combinator Patches / Bells and mallets)
Good combination of percussion and voice oohs. Very suitable for hypnotic and spooky atmospheres.
4 band Compression (Reason Factory Sound Bank / ALL Effect Patches / Mastering)
An essential tool for fat basses.
