Propellerhead Rebirth RB-338 Official Refill
ReBirth RB-338 was Propellerhead Software’s second product, released in 1997. ReBirth recreated the classic sounds of the Roland TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines together with a couple of TB-303 Bass Line synths in a neatly designed package.

ReBirth RB-338 was one of the first software products on the market that successfully emulated real hardware and quickly became very popular.

Somewhere along the line, some technically driven ReBirth user(s) discovered that it was possible to customize the graphic "skin” of the application, and also replace the samples in the two drum sections. This information quickly spread amongst users and in turn spawned a ReBirth community dedicated to creating and trading "ReBirth Mods”, with customized sample sets and panel graphics. Propellerheads wholeheartedly sanctioned this activity and even developed the ModPacker utility to help users develop their own Mods. Certain selected Mods were also included with the program, and still more Mods were available for download.

When Propellerheads decided to discontinue ReBirth, they realized that it would be possible to create a Reason ReFill containing all the original ReBirth drum samples plus all the samples incorporated in these selected Mods. The aim of this ReFill was not to "replace” ReBirth but rather to accurately reproduce the two drum sections in ReBirth, including all the "tweakable” sample parameters (Tone/Tune/Snap etc.) available in the original program. As a bonus, we included all the wonderful samples contained in the Mods we thought were particularly creative.

The result is the ReBirth RB-338 ReFill!

ReFill contents

The ReBirth RB-338 Mod ReFill contains the following:

D Combi (.cmb) patches
Each Combi is named after the original Mod it is based on. There are "808” and "909” versions of each Combi, containing the samples used for the respective (808 or 909) drum section in the original Mod.

D The individual samples
These are arranged in subfolders with the same name as the Combi it belongs to. Each sample will have the same name as the instrument slot as well as which drum section (808 or 909) used in the original ReBirth Mod. E.g. "TR909OHH.aif” means that the sample was used in the Open HiHat slot of the 909 drum section in the original Mod (although this could be named differently). Bear in mind also that the actual sample used may not correspond to the instrument name!

Beatskillz That Thing v1.0 WiN/MAC-UNION Beatskillz That Thing v1.0 WiN/MAC-UNION
Soft / Audio Soft 20-09-2015
There was something about older drum machines and synths that made them sound punchier and more pleasing than today’s clinically perfect sounds.

"That Thing” is a multi effects processor that was designed to get you "That Thing” missing from digitally perfect tracks today. It features a beautiful wide and deep chorus section great to thicken anything from synths, vocals, bass, pads drums and other sounds. The soundscape generator features 50 samples of old vinyl players, tape machines, old radio, tube gear, atmospheres, ambiences etc. These ad to your sound with an envelop follower, so the sounds add in only when signal is present and move, and pan with the level of the signal. Easily change the pitch of the soundscape to make it work with any audio you pass through it. The plugin features a bit crusher and distortion that emulates the sound of vintage drum machines giving you a choice of 8/12/16 and 24 bit audio. There is also an analog Low Cut and High Cut filter section designed to shape your sounds further. A wet and dry fader is included to blend in the effects with your original audio.

Features:

Multi Effects Plugin- Customize your tracks to sound different.
Bit Crusher – Emulate Vintage Drum Machines.
Analog Modelled Chorus – For wide, thick & rich sounds.
Soundscape Generator: Vinyl, Tape, Tube & Nature – 50 included.
Analog Modelled Filters – Low Cut and High Cut Filters.
