Want Jason McGerr, drummer for Death Cab for Cutie, to play on your next track? Might be a problem. But if you’ll settle for his drumming, his sound and his studio in ReFill form, there’s always Jason McGerr Sessions. All the Styles, All the Time The Jason McGerr Sessions ReFill contains beats and rhythms suitable for a wide spectrum of musical styles; if you’re looking for live played drums for your track, you’ll find them here. It’s that simple. A versatile drummer and a lover of good music in general, Jason provides you with drum loops and kits whose sound and playing styles range from basic bread ‘n’ butter pop beats through hip hop to live played glitch (!).
The Jason McGerr Sessions Refill was created specifically for Reason, and with Reason users needs in mind. Which becomes evident the moment you load it up. For instance, each of the featured drum loops comes with a multi-sampled kit made up of individual, full release sounds – letting you combine REX loops and indidvidual hits, for maximum flexibility. Need we add that every multi-sampled kit is available in close as well as ambience versions? Probably not.
On Location Drums

The Sessions were recorded using Class A mics, preamps and outboard gear, capturing faithfully not only Jason McGerr’s drums, but also the air and ambience of the room surrounding them.
