Bitword has introduced Wavefront, a collection of just over 4.5 gigabytes of waveforms created by Marc Van Bork in the Reason ReFill format.
Everything from multi-sampled analog and digital style waveforms, pads, choirs, strings, textures, ambience, and field recordings to electronic drums, metallic impacts, and mangled sounds have been carefully captured at high resolution (24/96) for processing and down-sampled to 16 bit – 44.1khz to provide a very clean and flexible database of raw material.
Wavefront is a massive refill with a current total of 2,222 patches with full modulation wheel support and 3.2 gigabytes of data compressed. Included are patches for the the NN-19, NN-XT, Combinator, and ReDrum in the following categories:
- NN-19: Pad, Lead, Bass, Blip, and Noise
- NN-XT: Modulations
- Combinator: Pad, Lead, Bass, Keys, Blip, Ambient, Noise, Experimental, and Hits
- ReDrum: Various kits from analog to organic impacts and effects
A vast array of hardware and software has been utilized to create content and quality that is intended to inspire new ideas and bring life to current and old productions. As a patch programming resource the possibilities are nearly inexhaustible. Convenient starting points are already mapped as fully programmed and detailed NN-19 patches. Additional patches will be added to the existing library over time and users can download patch updates from www.bitword.com in the near future.
Retail price is $129 US.
