View Full Version : 8-Bit Sounds

Are there any soundfonts/Refills for Reason that simulate an 8-bit, old-school video game sound? Also, does anyone know of any good rock organ soundfonts/ReFills?

lol you don't need any refills other than what you get with the program to make good 8-bit sounds, with the possible exception of drums.
If you go into the NN19 raw synths folder that has a wealth of awesome 8-bit sounds.
also, all the synths in reason (thor, subtractor, malstrom) all have obvious 8-bit potential as they are the sounds that make up more complex ones, just look at pure sine wave, sawtooth, square and triangle waves in the malstrom oscillators, and thor's analog oscillator is basically an 8-bit one.
You can tweak the filter and amp envelops of the synths to get the right timbre for the sounds you are looking for as well.

Just run any drum sound through Scream4's digital bit reduction algo. ;)
