Propellerhead came with a new auto-update for their DAW, Reason 10.1 that also introduces a new Free Drum Sequencer rack extension.

It features powerful-yet-intuitive programming tools to can create awesome drum beats faster than ever.
With features such as repeats, probability, and per-channel time resolution, the creative potential is endless! And the best of all – it adds fun to drum programming. Loads of fun!
