Jiggery-Pokery releases Additions: retro additive synthesizers for Reason

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 01, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Jiggery-Pokery has released Additions: retro additive synthesizers, an additive and FM synthesizer ReFill for Reason.

Jiggery-Pokery Additions ReFill

Additive synthesis: the unsung, unloved princess of synthesizer sound-making has been locked at the top of an overgrown tower for over a decade. Like a jester dressed as a Knight in slightly tarnished armour, JP rides to her rescue, kisses her back to life and lovingly crafts a massive set of sounds from two classic synthesizers, the FM/additive hybrid, the DK Synergy (1982), a long-time favourite of electronic artist Wendy Carlos, (patches from whom we are pleased to present here) and the true-additive beast that was the Kawai K5m (1987).

Additions features

  • DK Synergy: all three of the rare Wendy Carlos cartridges, plus the factory and FX sets, and cartridges #4 and #5, for a total of 165 tones, plus 35 multi-layered Combinators, all handcrafted into shape by JP, for Hollow Sun.
  • Kawai K5m: 253 patches from the Kawai K5m—one of only a handful of true additive synthesizers ever produced—and several of its memory cards, lovingly sampled and edited by JP. Several patches feature velocity or release layers, plus 100 multi-layered, additive industrial soundscapes, including many recreations of Kawai presets.
  • Most DKS and K5m patches feature up to four notes per octave to reduce note stretch artefacts, and samples up to 30 seconds long in some cases. Additions contains nearly 2.8GB of uncompressed samples..
  • 68 “Virtual Synergy” Combinators, using Thors’ FM Pair oscillators and inspired by the DK Synergy.
  • selig VocoSynth, combined with JPs virtual RMI Harmonic Synthesizer template.
  • PDF user guide.

The Additions ReFill is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

Jiggery-Pokery Retrospective

Jiggery-Pokery has announced the release of Blue Meanie and Retrospect, two new ReFills for Reason 5.

Blue Meanie: Virtually an ARP 2600 – Nearly 500 massive Thor patches for Reason 5, inspired by the classic synth.

Designed to bring the semi-modular nature of the ARP 2600 into Reason, Blue Meanie uses multiple Thor units to emulate all the “modules” of original: three analogue VCOs, VCF, Noise, Sample & Hold, Voltage Processor, and audio-in processing, plus the addition of a Sub Osc for some low-end, woofer-wobbling grunt.

Retrospective: 40 years of synthesizer history – An epic Refill of vintage synths and electronic keyboards.

JPs’ biggest project to date, the conversion of Hollow Suns’ huge archive of samples into Reason. With over 600 patches for NNXT and Combinator from instruments including the Oberheim M1000 and M12, Yamaha CP70 piano and FS1R digital synth, digital glory from the PPG Wave 2, Moog Taurus, Korg M01, Eminent 310U and the Roland VP-330.

Blue Meanie is available to purchase for £19.95 GBP, Retrospect is £39.95 GBP.

Jiggery-Pokery has also announced that the Hammond Novachord and Nebulae Pads are now available directly from Jiggery-Pokery for £19.95 each.
