Forget hiring, conducting and recording a 20-piece orchestra. We've done it for you with the Strings Refill Collection. This collection of sample patches and REX files will give your music the vibe that only real strings can provide.
Developed in association with PowerFX, Strings is a high quality collection of Dr.Rex string phrases and NN19 sampler patches. All string phrases have been edited in Propellerheads ReCycle program, which means that both tempo and pitch can be changed seamlessly for each loop. The ReCycle Rex file format also allow complete reorganization of the music phrases in Reasons Dr.Rex editor, all in total real-time.
Strings also contain 42 patches for Reasons NN19 sampler including Violin, Viola, Cello and Ensemble. The combination of Dr.Rex and NN19 material makes Strings not only a great authentic collection but also an incredible inspirational starting point.
Try using one of the 288 Rex loops and add a few choice notes with the NN19 sampler patches and you'll experience a brand new side of Reason. All Rex music loops are rhythmic in their character and ideally suited for R’n’B, pop, rock, hip hop or well, any music with a drum beat really.

The sessions took place in Documentary Studio, Moscow, originally designed as a cinema for Stalin but acoustically perfect for the purpose of orchestral recordings.
