The most deeply-sampled sitar, tambura, tabla and baya library ever released! Includes all important playing techniques, 8 Combinator patches, 34 NN-XT patches, special FX (designed) sounds, MIDI grooves, and extensive multisampling for maximum realism.
Sitar Nation captures the sounds of four traditional North Indian instruments with incredible detail. While many world or ethnic instrument collections are very 'broad', they provide only an overview of each instrument and not enough to create truly realistic performances or sequences. This library offers much greater depth, enough to create not only convincing rhythm or accompaniment parts, but true solo performances as well!
Four instruments are included: the classic sitar, tampura (low drones), tabla and baya (hand drums). Each has been sampled with multiple dynamics and round robin variations to avoid any 'machine gun' effects or repetitive sounds. Every important articulation was captured, from standard picks and glissandos to various bends, drones, phrases, release noises, and trills.
- Four deep-sampled instruments: sitar, tabla, tampura, baya
- 15 special FX Combinator patches
- 8 natural Combinator patches / 34 NN-XT patches
- Dozens of MIDI percussion grooves to get you started
- Multiple dynamics and round robins for each note
- Sustains, mordents, bends, tremolos
- Multiple glissando types, chikari strings

- Keyswitch patches for live performance and convenience
Highland Harps features the authentic sound of traditional folk harps: the lyre, lap harp, and celtic harp, sampled in great depth (1,900+ samples / 24 patches). These beautiful instruments evoke images of the Irish countryside, Appalachian splendor, tall tales, and a hearty mug of mead beside a crackling fire.
Highland Harps explores the full range of three gorgeous harps, sampling them in exquisite detail. Unlike traditional orchestral harps, these stringed instruments have a richer, brighter tone, recorded up close and dry with no excessive hall reverb. As with all ISW libraries, every note was recorded with many dynamic / velocity layers and round robins for maximum realism.
These stringed instruments each have a rich tradition extending back hundreds to thousands of years - and while they are ideal for traditional, folk, medieval and Renaissance music, they are also outstanding for modern productions in any number of styles, from soundtracks and scoring to atmospheric EDM, New Age, ambient, and even pop.

These sounds can be heard in a long list of films, television shows, video games, trailers, commercials, and records around the world.

We used high quality large diaphragm condenser microphones in wide stereo pairs, with full clarity, presence and body to allow easy custom arrangement and mixing. In adapting Tuned Micro to Reason’s ReFill format, we created a selection of ten Combinator patches, each featuring dual-layered articulations with adjustable note attack, release, and independent volume control for each articulation. We’ve also included a few creative effects such as reverb, sweepable resonant lowpass filter and echo.

Drums and Percussion of Ancient Mexico
Drums and Percussion of Ancient Mexico by Sounds and Effects includes fierce Aztec war drums, ceremonial log drums, husk rattles, deep Shamanic frame drums, Cantaro clay water pot, a bright pandeiro, the wild, wild sounds of the Mayan friction drum, which clicks, whirs, pops, groans, and imitates the sound of the jaguar and much more...
The Teponaztli and HueHuetl were the main percussion instruments of the Aztecs. The fierce Huehuetl would lead into battle, or was used in ceremonies including human sacrifices, often with the teponaztli. Originally played by hand, legend has it that after the Spanish conquered Mexico the huehuetl was outlawed -- punishment was cutting off of the offending hand of the player! Years later, when the drum was legalized, players struck them only with sticks, in memory of those who lost hands in the past.
In addition to the Teponaztli and HueHuetl this ReFill includes:
- Pandeiro Hits And Shakes - hits, shakes, rubbed.
- Ayacaxtle Shakers Ayoyotes Rattles, Maracas, gourd rattles, Guiro, Claves
- Friction Drum
- Mexican Bells - copper, iron, and clay hand bells.
- Cántaro - Clay jug from Chiapas that is hit to get diverse percussion effects.

Kazakh Dombra captures the traditional stringed instrument of the same name, recorded with the utmost authenticity. The dombra has a bright, percussive tone with a quick decay, making it ideal for very quick playing. It can be compared to the Japanese shamisen, or even a banjo, in that it is frequently strummed quickly along with rapid melodic lines.
To make the instrument as realistic as possible, every single note was sampled on both strings of the dombra, with up to 16 (8 up and 8 down) variations per note! All crucial playing techniques are included, such as sustains, mutes, 'mordents' (quick pitch turns), and release noises. No fake-sounding transposed notes or repetition here.
The Kazakh Dombra is a fantastic tool for those looking to add an authentic East European / Russian sound to their arsenal. From chase scenes to underscore, virtuosic solo parts, or layering with other sounds of the region, we think you will find the textures of this instrument to be very musical and inspiring!

Ocarinas and Clay Flutes
Sounds And Effects presents Ocarinas and Clay Flutes, a collection of native clay flutes and ocarinas of the Americas, played for easy creation of sweet,sorrowful, strange and haunting melodic lines, breathy, wailing overblown screeches, weird nose blown flute tones, or odd microtonal trills and bird calls.
Ocarinas and Clay Flutes Reason ReFill includes the haunting sounds of the native and pre Hispanic American flutes of north and central America. Four ocarinas, played so that they create sweet or sorrowful, straight simple notes, or vibrato, wild calls, screeches, tonal or microtonal trills, or fanciful bird calls. The samples are presented here with lots of velocity switches, or mod wheel controller fades, so that a straight note can easily become a 1/2 step breathy slide up or down, a nasty screech, a wild haunting trill, or fade into fully overblown, providing great playability while maintaining ease of use.
