Way Beyond Fairlight for Reason (version 7 and upwards) contains over 4,000 patches. The library was built using our own multisamples of classic instruments as well as our unique Bitley™ recordings. The Combinator patches are extremely vast, with instant options for filter, effects and envelope settings. You are also getting a large sample library for further programming adventures. The. Largest. One. Ever.
WBF R2 has been an 8 year development process. A true and very serious music production toolkit indeed. You will find Kong kits, ReDrum kits, NNXT patches, Combinators, Thor synths and more; all thinkable sound types.
Everything in the library is designed with the true ambition of creating a modern day Fairlight CMI workstation: Something that actually works since Reason both has built in sampling and Midi out capabilities just like the Fairlight CMI workstations once had.
Soundwise the library is the world’s largest Fairlight CMI soundbank and that’s just the beginning. We sampled a pristine CMI IIx so that is taken care of. All thinkable variations too so you’re getting slow and fast Sararr synths; layered and processed Combinator versions as well as dry and simple if picked from the beautiful NNXT sampler.
Many more sources were added. All drum machines we could source. That’s, um, nearly all drum machines in the world. All synthesizers we could source. That’s, um, nearly all synthesizers in the world. We sorted this into machines / instruments and even artists. So yes, there is a folder for Art Of Noise sounds. And um, yeah… you get the picture: nearly all the important Fairlight-using bands in the world. A-ha experience anyone? And these are just inspiring and very fun starter points.
You will be making tomorrow’s hottest music with all this. Any style. But you can also recreate any old CMI based hit track with it. With the unmatched sample accurate timing and precision of Reason. Frankly all other Fairlight plugin and recreation attempts will pale very quickly in comparison with WBF R2. This is the beez kneez and that’s what will make tomorrow’s Wood Beez Buzz!
WBF R2 is the definitive sound library and it needs to be experienced first hand. And you can only get it directly from us. Period. You have to. Really.
And we encourage you to use this as a toolkit for your own programming and sampling too! Think of WBF R2 as the largest Lego Technic box for sound design ever created. It truly is. How many pieces you say? Ok, here you go. 4000 patches. 6000 samples. Age 16-99. And we won’t update it any more; the refill is so maxed out it took us days to compile it. Every kilobyte of available space was used. Maxed out.
Sampling The Fairlight CMI Refills
Sampling the Fairlight CMI refills is a new album release of all the relevant in-house demo tracks that were created over the years. We hope you will smile, love and enjoy it; this is probably the best way we could present our sound libraries, really. Real music, from the real major music channels of today. Working? Working. You love Art Of Noise, Pet Shop Boys, Yello? Welcome friend!
Note as well that the link below contains info for how you can release your own music on all the main platforms, for free. Amuse is a muse you can use.

Way Beyond Fairlight Kontakt R2
This is the largest and latest Kontakt version of our library. All of the sounds here were completely redesigned and built from the ground up to work perfectly in Kontakt.
Steps involved; 1. converting all NNXT patches from Reason, 2. Noticing that nothing was correctly converted. 3. Reprogramming. 4. Reprogramming again. 5. Renaming. Redesigning: Everything. A nightmare deluxe. But we did it anyway.
Note: You need to have the full version of NI Kontakt. Not Kontakt Player etc.
The WBF R2 Kontakt version is sorted into categories such as bass, drums & percussion, mallets & chimes, plukz & guitars etc. The grand total number of patches is well over 2,000 and everything is designed to be very inspiring to use, instantly playable. Just like the Reason version but just different. Using the Kontakt powers instead of the NNXT / Combinator ones was a true challenge — but also one that gave us a lot in return. In the form of audible pleasures deluxe.
