The ten most iconic.
Which are the ten most iconic and famous Fairlight CMI sounds in your view? This made me come up with a fun / very early End Of Corona celebration so here’s the ten most iconic and famous Fairlight sounds, for Kontakt, for free.
SERVICE 1 CASSETTE GAZETTE 1
Upcoming. We will produce a series of entertaining and professional Reason tutorials based on pre-made Reason files that you purchase. You can then use your premade file and follow the online course exactly without getting lost. We are recording this to cassette tape as well and the top supporter gets the original cassette recording by air mail. The tutorial class will of course also be available as video online.

PRODUCT 2 WAY BEYOND FAIRLIGHT KONTAKT TOP SELLER
Way Beyond Fairlight Kontakt Over 2,000 sounds for Kontakt – just not Kontakt Player. Same development platform as WBF R2 for Reason but actually quite different as all patches are reprogrammed to work well in Kontakt instead. You will find lots of synths, strings, pads, sound effects, bells, bass sounds, voices and drums in this library – and all of it with a high fidelity but still ‘electronic’ to its character. Ancient sampler vibes and pure inspiration. This new version also includes the previous library Dreampads.
WBF Kontakt $99
PRODUCT 3 CASIO VZ PATCHES
The VZ Bank Fat polysynths as well as great digital synth sounds, effects and even drums. 64 singles, 64 combinations. Time to program: Three months.
The VZ Bank $29
PRODUCT 4 ROLAND JD-XA PATCHES
JD-XA Noodlings A fine selection of patches, which you transfer to your JD-XA with a regular USB stick formatted from the synth. See my popular YouTube demo linked via the menu. Just one patch in use there = completely transforms the entire synth.
JD-XA Noodlings $10
PRODUCT 5 TOP SELLER WAY BEYOND FAIRLIGHT R2
Way Beyond Fairlight Release 2 Professional music production “go to” soundset with over 4,000 individual patches for all Reason instruments. Time to program: Eight years.

All famous samples in the libraries are used with kind permission from the original sampling teams. All of the libraries include lots of new material not existing anywhere else on the planet.
Patch Merits I have designed sounds for Propellerhead / Reason Studios (vital parts of The Factory Sound Bank, all of the ReCycle 2 settings – “My Mad Neighbour” and so on), Arturia (Pigments, Fairlight CMI and many more), Clavia (parts of the Nord Modular 2 factory sounds, as well as inventing the Nord Micro Modular!), PowerFX, Rob Papen and others. Bitley customers include Tears For Fears, David Gamson and perhaps even yourself! New collaborations always welcome. Contact: patrick dot fridh gmail com
A life-long fascination of sounds.
Kontakt, Reason, Logic ProX, Omnisphere, and sometimes just any synth / sampler. Currently the inspiration is back for working on the D-50 and the new D-50 “sequencer” findings, but I also love my old Akai S-1000KB and the brand new Behringer Poly D!
Update from any older version.
Updating to the latest and greatest versions is always possible, extremely cheap and very simple. Do it now to get up to thousands* of new patches. In most cases you do not even need to update Kontakt nor Reason, the new libraries will keep working.
*) if you have a very old version you will get a giant update as these latest versions include over 2,000 patches (Kontakt) / over 4,000 patches (Reason) respectively.
