Note: This thread is not intended to perpetuate the "Reason should accept Plugins" debate. There are plenty of threads and blogs about that already, so please refrain yourself from posting your opinion on that matter in this thread.

The possibility to recreate or mimic popular hardware/plug-ins became a reality when The Combinator was introduced in Reason 3, and indeed you will find that many Combinator patches in the current Reason 6 Factory Sound Bank compare to (or possibly exceed) the most popular hardware/plug-ins (i.e. Beat Repeaters, Delays, Dynamics/EQs, Gating & Choppers, etc.). The possibility to mimic popular hardware/plug-ins grew exponentially with the introduction of the Thor Polysonic Synthesizer in Reason 4 and now with the Alligator Filtered Gate, Pulveriser Demolition and The Echo Delay devices introduced in Reason 6.

The spirit of this thread is to establish a central list of all known Combinators that were created to mimic specific hardware devices and plugins of any format (AAX, AudioUnit, RTAS, TDM or VST). However, if the combinator is part of a commercially licensed refill, please do not upload the actual combinator patch to this thread as this would be a direct violation of your end user licensing agreement with the refill developer(s).

RULES: Post the type of hardware/plug-in (using below categories), name of the hardware/plug-in and weblink to the hardware/plug-in developer along with the name and sound bank location (or weblink) of the Combinator that provides the same or similar effect as the hardware/plug-in. You are encouraged to upload Combinator patches that you have personally created and would like to share with the forum members. This may also include hardware/plug-in keyboard sounds that have been recreated using either the Subtractor, Malström or Thor (with or without a Combinator). Refills or Combinator patches that include audio samples of actual hardware instruments do not qualify.

The list will be broken down into the following categories (most taken from the "ALL Effects Patches" list in the Reason 6 Factory Sound Bank). If you feel more categories are necessary, please let me know and I will consider expanding the list if necessary.

The index control rotary adjusts the grain index point on all four graintables (X dimension of animoog). Unlike the app this combi is only mono, but for the type of sound it generates, one voice is probably all that you need."

Does anyone else have the problem where Propellerhead's old user forum is serving up one pixel gif files instead of any attachments?
Do you sing like Olive Oyl on purpose? You guys must be into the Eurythmics.
