The fifth and final surprise of Propellerhead's series of Reason 5 and Record 1.5 announcements is Kong Drum Designer, an instrument that promises to give Reason 5 users a much greater degree of control over their beats.

Kong combines virtual analogue synthesis, physical modelling, sample-playback and effects to create a frankly fearsome looking virtual drum sound designer. The sound sources include four virtual analogue generators (bass, snare, hat and tom), three physical modelling generators (bass, snare and tom), NN-Nano (a simpler sampler in the style of NN-XT), Nurse Rex (a Dr. Rex-style ReCycle loop playback engine), Noise and Tone "support generators" (simple virtual analogue synths to supplement the other modules), and nine effect modules including transient shaper and reverb effects.
