808 Bass Machine
This combinator patch I made gives you the most similar to a real TR-808 kick sound that I have seen. Its not a sample though, it’s a Thor synth that produces the initial sound so you can play it on the keyboard with correct pitch. I use it all the time for deep kicks in Hip Hop.
This is a combinator patch that I rigged up so that you can quickly use the filters and built in effects on the Thor synthesizer. I love running samples or synths or whatever I want through the different filters on the Thor. I also think the way that the delay on the Thor de-tunes its feedback is unlike anything else I have heard.
Arp Trance Mega
This combinator I made is a big nasty trance synth with an arpeggiator on it. Great sounding synth that sounds good at any tempo. I used this and a couple variations of it on Malbec’s song, “Unus Vita,” from Answering Machine EP#5.
Poly 80’s Ballad
This is a little combinator patch that I made that has kind of an 80’s Yamaha DX7 Rhodes feel to it but with a lot more of a bell sound to it. It’s a very light sound that’s easy to fit into a mix. I used it on Malbec’s “When We See” off of Answering Machine EP#3.
095-Gmin-OrchPrases (Reason Strings Refill/Orchestral Strings)
I know a lot of people have probably heard this string loop before but I used it in 2006 on “What It Do” from Lupe Fiasco’s “Food & Liquor.” This is a great refill because there are not very many other refills out there with REX’d orchestral phrases. Most are just multi-samples, not loops.
