465 new Combinator patches from legendary Reason sound designer Tom Pritchard aka Stompp! Here's the down low on Vast:
Tom Pritchard Sound Design presents Vast for Reason versions 4 and above – a unique ReFill packed with 465 inspiring, innovative and incredibly useful Combinator patches. These Combinators make the most of Thor’s modulation possibilities to create expressive, rich sounds that are full of movement and are incredibly playable. Every patch has been meticulously crafted to sound detailed and interesting whilst sitting comfortably in a useful frequency range, so you can easily drop any of these patches into a mix and get down to writing some great music without having to tweak them.
Vast contains 100 atmosphere & FX patches, 42 bass patches, 58 keys and polysynths, 100 leads and monosynths, 100 pads and 65 sequencer based synths. The sequencer can be switched off at the push of a button for each of the sequenced synths, giving you an extra 65 mono and polysynths if you’d like to use your own sequences. Using Vast is like having a new sound module inside Reason. Combinator control mappings are set to be useful – all patches give you control of the amplitude envelope so you can quickly sculpt these sounds to your needs, whilst the Mod Wheel allows you to get some juicy variety in tone, and the buttons allow you to alter the timbre of the patch and activate or deactivate the reverbs and delay designed for every Combinator, so you can quickly get these sounds working with your music.

UPDATE: Tried Vast for the first time this afternoon, particularly the Keys and Poly folder and man is it good! Many of these patches use velocity sensitivity to alter parameters like pitch, filter frequency and of course volume in ways that make them feel like so much more than software. Seriously, buy yourself Vast for the holidays, you're with it!
