C ReFills There is a well-known saying that "too much is never enough." Although this saying can be applied to many life situations, it fits the modern electronic musician like a glove. In a digital world of samples, loops, and patches, creative electronic musicians are always on the prowl for more goodies to add to their stash. Although many wonderful and creative samples and patches come with Reason, an experienced user will always clamor for more and more content. To meet this demand, I give you ReFills! ReFills are compilations of samples, loops, and patches created specifically for use in Reason. Although files of many formats can be used to create a ReFill, such as WAV, AIFF, REX, and patch files, a ReFill is accessed as one single file of a particular type. This is similar to the idea behind an archived file, such as a ZIP or SIT file. Throughout this book, I have mentioned ReFills many times. This appendix sheds more light on what they are, how they work, and, most importantly, how to make your own ReFills.
