...bass patch of choice? I'm a real life bass guy, but not opposed to a good fat synth bass. I'm new to the sequencing thing, and chose a stand up bass because I thought it sounded "realistic" until I listened to the completed song and then it just ended up sounding cheesey. Sometimes you can't really tell what it's going to sound like until you get all the layers of the song going... Laughing

I found a fender bass soundfont a while back that was ok, but ya know, like you stated, it sounded fake... obviously fake. Like fender started a new line of piano fake... I dont think there is such thing as a good bass synth... unless you like electronica... Confused

I totally dig good fat synth sounds. I'm in love with my Muon Tau Pro synth!

doesn't reason have a soundfont player?

if so, check out www.sf2midi.com lots of free soundfonts, including bass... some are worth the look... some are shit... but they're rated so You should be able to weed the bad ones out!

No.

It has a sample player, But Subtractor is the bass module of choice.

I just cycle through the patches til I find one close to what I like, Ratso. Then I tweak. It's a pretty simple little synth.

Here's a thought, though - go to Propellerheads' site and download some Reason songs - see which ones you like. Those techno guys really use sounds in creative ways - I'm pretty staid and boring, by comparison...

Tjarko,

Reason is a closed system - no external synths. Or anything else.

I use Tau sometimes too. Just not in Reason. Nice little synth.

Hello. Reason's NN-XT can import sf2 files so try the soundfont site suggested above. Also, check through the NN-XT patches in the Factory Soundbank refill that comes with reason for some multi-sampled bass guitar ones. Alternatively there are patches for the Malstrom and Subtractor synths that don't sound bad at all (if you have reason 3, use "create instrument by browsing for patch" on the right-click menu in an empty rack space). Failing all of these options, look around for some bass guitar refills.
