This is a first: a ReFill for a VST instrument! SoftPhonics has just published "A Massive Reason", a huge ReFill for Massive owners. Our own Mike McKew reviews it and tests some of the patches. Check the video and the article!

I don't get it. The website says for Reason 9 and above. If you already own Massive, why not just open directly in Reason (9.5 or above)? Or is it strictly for Reason 9.0 users?

It's for Reason 9.5 obviously as it requires VST integration (and Massive), but the upgrade from 9 to 9.5 being free, anyone with a R9 licence can use it, provided they do upgrade. I think they chose to word it like that because it's "from R9" as opposed to "before R9" (and not as opposed to "until R9.5"). And it's opened directly in Reason (it can't be opened through a standalone version of Massive, as the combinators use several native devices). I hope I'm not adding further confusion :)

FYI - You site / magazine guys are always free to contact and ask for review copies also from other vendors like myself.

Honestly I don't think these patches are that much more amazing than the built in patches in Reason itself. So all this proves to me is that Reason is already amazing as is and doesn't need VSTs to be great. I guess it's hard to beat the price if you're already a Massive user, then you might as well buy it, but it doesn't make me want to buy the synth just to get these patches.
