Took the time to check what had been done so far and it sums up at no less than16 different refills that I've created under the Bitley™ name. All of them are online now, and all of them are pretty cool actually.

Everything is here: http://bitley.laconicsounds.net/all-of-the-refills/ including demos, order links, update options.

1. Orlando JX-10.
We processed our own Roland JX-10 patches by recording them to analog tape. After that, we sampled them and built patches. This became the Orlando JX-10 refill which also contains a healthy amount of drum kits from V-Synth and TR-909 and more. All patches are carefully categorized and while not perhaps having the best visibility factor, the Combinator graphics are super cool and gets you into the right Roland JX mood when browsing and having fun. Orlando JX10 – “Taped Noises” is a refill perfectly usable for genres like house, techno, electro, pop and more. It contains 444 sounds from the Roland JX10 synthesizer. Before sampling, the sounds were processed with an Otari MTR-90 reel-to-reel 24 track tape machine in order to give the sounds some extra grit and uniqueness. We sampled our own patches as well as a few classic factory presets such as Obese Fifths. Also included is some 909 and V-Synth drum sounds. You can make entire tracks with the refill or use it as an extra spice. Compatible with Reason 4 and upwards. Includes new variations on the Reason factory (sound bank) patch “Amazing Lead” (for Malström) which we programmed, along with some other patches. Orlando JX comes with Combinator patches as well as NNXTs and ReDrum kits. The JX-10 patches are also available via this page, as real sysex files for the actual JX-10 Super JX / MKS-70.

2. The Prophet.
Contains all of the original Prophet 5 sounds, carefully and painstakingly multisampled from a real Rev 2 Prophet 5. These are the 40 original Sequential Instruments patches. Also included: A truckload of other patches, such as more NNXT patches, Rex files and Combinator patches. Also included for all customers of this refill: The DaBeat refill! So, for $39 you get the Prophet ReFill plus the $15 Da Beat ReFill thrown in for free. Introducing DaBeat – the essential ReFill for all of you who uses the ReDrum. DaBeat contains a lot of pre-produced kits but the main thing is its collection of samples. You get your drum samples perfectly normalized and edited. All of the drum sounds from the Fairlight CMI Legacy ReFill are included as well as newly recorded samples from some classic machines.

3. Fairlight II+.

The Bitley Fairlight CMI Legacy MK II+ ReFill is the first Bitley™ fairlight refill with virtual ‘machines’, like AIRBASS bass module, and THE ORCH orchestral sounds. The Entire Fairlight IIx library is included, original graphics on the Combinators and more. Comes with about 2,400 patches. Includes the complete Fairlight series II factory preset library as well as sounds taken from live audio sources. The library also contains synthesizer sounds from the same era as the Fairlight – such as Yamaha TX816, Roland JX10, Roland D-50, many drum machines, odd digital synthesizers and more. The amazing thing about the library is that it collects all of this for Reason, giving the Reason user access to sounds never before achievable within the software’s environment. The Fairlight cost over $70,000 in the 80s and was an untouchable dream synthesizer / sampler workstation for all keyboard players. Quite amazingly all of this is now available for $69 running on a Mac or PC computer. Fairlight is a registered trademark and the library is officially approved by Peter Vogel, founder of the Fairlight CMI. The refill attempts to fully recreate the working environment given every Fairlight CMI user during the days of the early 80s. Inspiration for the sound design comes from all the classic pop records of those days that were made with the legendary Fairlight CMI. We have been inspired by the likes of China Crisis, The Art Of Noise, Scritti Politti, Howard Jones, Peter Gabriel and many others. Additional sampling has been made recording live audio material such as flute, recorder flute, a friend singing “La!” and pristine recordings of Yamaha DX7, Roland JX8P, Roland TR-808, Roland TR-909, Casio VZ-8m, Sequential Tom and LinnDrum. These are instruments we feel add to the true 80’s. Making combinations of these sounds together with the Fairlight also creates new sounds way beyond that.

4. Fairlight XXL.
XXL comes with 3,000 patches. Everything from Fairlight II+ is retained with the addition of new patches, samples and Kong sets. This refill sets an exceptional standard, delivering all of the sounds you always dreamed of right into your Reason rack. Compete instantly with the finest synthesizers available from yesterday, today and tomorrow. If you want to get access to our own demo tracks, Fairlight XXL is the one Fairlight refill of ours containing the most demo music. Later refills in the Fairlight series contain none of this. That had to be done in order to conserve space for the added samples and patches in other versions.

5. Fairlight Platinum.

Platinum adds over 300 new patches. The quality is stunning. The Fairlight refills are developed with kind permission from Peter Vogel, Fairlight Instruments Pty, and they are the largest collection of Fairlight sounds available except if you buy a Fairlight CMI 30A. Platinum contains over 3,300 individual patches. Besides Fairlight and unique Combinator programming we have also recorded a crazy collection of other gear. Perfectly mimicking what a top notch Fairlight-equipped studio used to have back in its heyday. We love those old sounds – but we also love investigating in deep programming to come up with brand new stuff. Great signature patches provided by EditEd4TV, Navi Retlav, Abstract Assasinator and Dr Loop.

6. Way Beyond Fairlight R2.
The Fairlight refill for Reason 7 and up.

http://bitley.laconicsounds.net/way-beyond-fairlight/

7. RE-XT 1.

RE-XT 1 is a rack extension patch refill for Reason 7 and up with 270 patches for Polysix, Pulsar, PX7 and Redominator. RE-XT 1 offers combinator patches with magnificient tweakability. The Pulsar patches are made in a modular synth fashion so that the advanced LFO unit actually becomes playable; however, it behaves in most peculiar ways which means you will get sounds out from it that you probably have never heard from Reason before. The patches offer experimentation and playability in a perfect mix. A whole new world of sounds.

8. O8R.
O8R is a complete fully programmable digital synthesizer plugin in refill format. 300 single cycle, perfectly looped waveforms taken from our vast collection of hardware synths, flutes, organs and even human voices and also a number of drum sounds. We use all of this to build really big, moving sounds with interesting modulations.

9. Poly X3M Platinum.
This refill builds upon the idea of the polyphonic string ensemble instruments, such as the Korg Lambda which was multi-sampled and looped for this project. The combinator design allows for seamless fading between instruments sorted into 8 categories. Poly ensemble instruments as well as an interesting selection of sounds from our Fairlight and O8R material. Comes with over 800 patches; 350 Combinators, 370 NNXTs, 60 Rex loops (synth phrases & chords), 30 ReDrum Kits, 20 FX Patches, 20 RE Patches.

10. Classix Nouveaux Les Synthesis.

A super cheap sample based synth refill with many very classic and lovely synths! Contains samples from Matrix 6, TB-303, Moog Prodigy, SH-101, MS-20, SQ-80. All synths sorted into separate folders & also availble in an All NNXT patches folder.

11. Patrick F’s D-50 ReFill.

A multitude of wonderful & highly playable classic and new D-50 sounds sampled and patched into the NN-19 sampler. Works with every version of Reason, from Reason 1.0 and up. This is one of our all time favourite refills. Always inspiring!

12. Dreams Of Robots.
Dreams Of Robots is a fun and small refill where we sampled a toy keyboard and created drumkits etc from it.

13. Way Beyond Synclavier 1.
Way Beyond Synclavier 1 – Synthesizer Kings introduces our amazing Synclavier synthesizer sounds with entirely new programming, patching, combinator design and more. The refill weighs just below 360 Mb and contains 231 NNXT patches, 700 Mb of samples, 18 FX patches, about 120 bonus patches for rack extensions (A series, Ivoks, Polysix, Predator, Pulsar, PX7 and Revival), Midi out templates for Unitor 8 / AMT8 as well as 9 carefully designed and programmed Combinator patches. All instrument samples are perfectly looped and everything was multi-sampled at 16/24 bits at 44,1 Khz. The sample content is much larger than the patch content, so there is plenty of room for creating even more patches.

14. Way Beyond Synclavier 2.

The second Synclavier sound pack comes with 50 highly versatile patches – a ‘bread and butter’ collection of sounds to please any taste. Standout sounds are the Klik Synbas patches; excellent house music friendly synth basses; acoustic sounds like strings, pianos, harp, guitar and various bell sounds.

15. DeLight.

DeLight is our mini Fairlight CMI refill with excellent patches & combinator patches, a nice way to try out the Fairlight refill series without paying the full price. The sounds in DeLight are fully usable for creation and experimentation with the vast possibilities of the NNXT.

16. DaBeat.

Sampled material includes: Oberheim DMX, RX5, Sequential DrumTraks, Sequential TOM, TR-505, 606, 707, 808, 909, CR-68, CR-78, Fairlight CMI IIx, Casio VZ1, V-Synth and an added secret drum machine on top. In total, the DaBeat ReFill contains about 1300 samples. There’s heavily EQed and processed variations. Tailor-made for house, techno and other electronic music styles, this is a perfect toolkit for any producer using Reason (version 4 and above). Also included: a complete FX library and a few bass samples to be easily laid out on the keyboard using the NNXT. To start with, the ReFill includes 100 ReDrum patches. Using all 10 slots in the ReDrum, that’s 1000 sounds alone. Since the ReDrum lets you edit a lot of parameters per slot, the number of combinations is endless.

Have you guys made sure to get all the fine free rack extensions? I just got the kHs delay & chorus etc today and just had a bit of fun with them.

Here's a rather sweet little Axel F combinator with controls set for suitable tweaking.

Haven't had a chance to try the patch yet. But thank you. I'll download it now! :D

As far as the the shop... I'm a fan of your ReFills, but I think your shop would be more inviting for browsing/shopping if it was less busy.
Maybe take a page out of Nucleus Soundlab's book? Where you have an image for each product and the customer clicks on a product for more info... Rather than listing everything all on one page. It can be a bit overwhelming and easy to overlook products.

Yup, the Reason synths are more powerful than people in general seem to realize.

If you want to hear my recent Fairlight demos, those are made with Kontakt 5 and Logic. I am using the same patches as in WBF R2 but they are converted and sometimes reprogrammed to fit the differences in Kontakt versus NNXT and Combinator.

Going through the library it's a lot of fun rediscovering patches but it's a lot of work.
