Additive synths

Jiggery-Pokery Sound

Audio examples


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).
