Many of us strive to recreate the sounds that we hear on pro recordings, and thanks to Propellerhead, this has just become much easier for Reason users.

This is thanks to the company's new Artist Patch Charts - lists of sounds (plus details of how they were created) from famous Reason users.

Flaming Lips drummer Steven Drozd, synth guru Richard Barbieri and Chaka Khan's keyboard player Javad are just three of the artists who've contributed.

Each entry details the location of the patch the sound is based on, and many of these can be found in Reason's Factory Sound Bank.

The Artist Patch Charts can be viewed now on the Propellerhead website.
