PinkNoise QuickSilver XTension REFILL (1 cd)
This refill is not 'just another refill' or a sampler CD that happens
to support the Reason Refill format!
Instead, QUICKSILVER is a refill version of the Yamaha QS300
synthesizer, or to be more precise, the enlarged refill version that
nearly gives you a new device to your Reason environment. To
understand this, we have to see, how QS300 works...
The Yamaha QS300 is a very rich-sounding synthesizer, because it uses
a multi-layer structure, every layer has its own envelope, filter,
etc. We can create wonderful pads, endless morphing textures and some
other warm and fat patches... but!
If you record these sounds, you will loose the possibility of
alteration later: you can not change the parameters of each layer
independently, only for the whole mixed samples. It's just like a
snapshot... sounds good but less versatile.
Instead of this method, we have choosen a more complicated way. The
QS300 uses small parts (in Yamaha terminology: elements) to build its
sound: every layer is based on an element.We broke down the sounds of
the QS300 to these elements, recorded all of them, and then we
completely rebuilt the multilayered patches in NNXT.
The result was very surprising for us and defenitely it proves the
power of NNXT advanced sampler! :) The NNXT provides a lot of very
sophisticated options, many of these features and nuances probably
remain hidden from the users unless somebody programs NNXT for 8
months on every blessed day...;-)
The contents of the QUICKSILVER refill:
NN-XT instruments :
Over 300 rich-sounding NN-XT patches in the following categories:
Ambience, Bass, Experimental, Lead, Morphing Textures, Pad, OneKey,
Organ, Percussions, Piano&Kbd, Sequencer, SpecialFX.
NN19 instruments : 210 patches - the elements
We have also included these elements in the refill, we think they are
useful for creating new QS patches. They can be divided into three
* Basic Elements (163 patches): (Brass&Reed, Chromatic&Organ, Ethnic,
Guitar&Bass, Loop&Misc, OneCycleWaves, Percussive&FX, Piano&Keybrds,
* More Elements (22 patches) : they come from other synthesizers to
make the QUICKSILVER more rich and versatile.
* Complex patches(26 patches): the fastest way to get complex sounds,
these QS300 presets sound very rich in themselves.
* The samples
You can find in this folder 1696 wav files.They constitute the "core"
of the elements and some complex patches.
