Rebirth Refills - Propellerheads Software

To fill the gap left by the now discontinued ReBirth application, Propellerhead Software presents the ReBirth ReFill! A 100 mb monster ReFill that not only recreates the sounds of the original application, but also of all of the Mods that were available on the Propellerhead website.

ReBirth is the software reincarnation of two analog bassline synths and two classic drum machines. We've also thrown in a digital delay, a quad-input distortion unit, a compressor and an analog filter emulation unit, the PCF (Pattern Controlled Filter).

GranuLab - Rasmus Ekman

GranuLab - Rasmus Ekman

Granulab synthesis is the technology of creating complex sound by playing back many short and relatively simple sound fragments with varying parameters. Merely using a sine and controlling length, pitch and density of grains, several types of sound can be generated. It is even more interesting to start from an existing sound sample, cutting it up into short segments and controlling how these are played back.
