This CD is packed full of specially recorded sounds that whilst being original have a very classic sound. This CD includes sections devoted to:
Kickin' Jamz - Mid Jamz - Slo' Jamz - Garage/House Loops - Reggae Loops - M&C Loops - Percussion Loops - Shuffles - Rolls
Stereo Vocal Blocks - Vocal Hooks - Additional Vocals
Sax - Trumpets - Guitar - Hits - FX - Keyboards
Bass Lines - Basses - Useful R&B Samples
Snares - M&C, Rare, Swing, 70s/Disco, 80s, R&B, Garage/House, Reggae, Ragga & Misc. - Bass Drums - Percussion - Hats, Crashes, and Rides
This CD also includes the exclusive Black II Black Sample Schools. These are selections of sounds that are used to produce a track in a particular genre. All the samples used to create the track are there, and you can substitute sounds from elsewhere on the CD for those used to give an equally authentic, but different sound. If the track sounds like the type of thing you are aiming for, then these samples will be a great shortcut.

More info on the Producer
Steve & Joe are veterans of the UK soul scene. The Cool Notes achieved chart successes during the eighties. They signed for PWL but the plan to 'sell soul back to the Americans' never came to fruition. They have however taken time out to produce and remix for the new breed of UK dance acts and are in the process of relaunching their careers again as The Cool Notes.
THE 'REFILL' DEMO above is in fact a Reason Song Demo File
CHECK OUT VOLUME 1 FOR DEMO FILES - Both volumes have a similar sound.
GENERAL: ReFills are exclusively for use with Propellerheads Reason. They are preset expansions that transform Reason and can offer you new sounds for every module in Reason. Not all ReFills contain content for every module and libraries that are essentially only REX file-based (like drum loop libraries) are generally only released as REX CDs rather than ReFills. ReFills make sample libraries come to life!
SPECIFIC: This ReFill contains all the library's REX files, there are also NN19 programs for extremely fast access, some ReDrum kits, SubTractor & Malstrom patches and even a few song starters.
