Yes, the patches are in the refill too :-) But I originally did this track in 2007 at my parent's home, using their 500 Mhz PC and Reason 2.0. The track is included in all the older versions of the refill. With the latest (Fairlight Platinum) there were no more space for demos so I took those out, giving room to more samples and patches. Thanks for all kind comments about the track. Really just a rainy day & some toying with Subtractor.
The most common misunderstanding of the Subtractor is that it's a simple subtractive synth - it's not: it's a fairly complex wavetable synth. Pelle (Peter Jubel) told me about it when we had a lunch during my first days at Propellerhead in 2001. He's the guy who did Subtractor.
Ever since I found out how to utilize the wavetable powers it's my all time favourite soft synth.
(btw; it does fairly ok subtractive synths too, here's my track '1982' (from 2001 & made with reason 1.0) which is 100% subtractor except the drums & one sample (in the reDrum) where I sang a little simple refrain)
It can sweep the waveforms on its own, works perfectly. Polyphonically... well, you have up to 99 voices per subtractor... with a modern computer Reason gives you like, well I'd guess - about 5000 voices of polyphony.
Yup, the DX7 has extreme possibilities when programmed 'in depth'. Pity that it's such a major project doing that. The Subtractor is first and foremost extremely quick to work with, I like that. Please note though that I am not in any way affiliated with Pheads. I only worked there for 1,5 years. Just a happy synth nerd. : )
