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).

For bright bells, brasses and strings, to digital Basses, orchestral FM tones and wierd effects, Additions will cut through your mixes and add a silvery, slivery sparkle.

As well as the sampled patches, Additions also includes sets of Synergy- inspired, Thor-based Combinators
