Blue Meanie is a Thor-based ReFill inspired by that venerable analogue
classic, the ARP 2600. Designed for Reason 5, and making full use of the
Combinator, each of nearly 500 patches includes all oscillators and module
types found on the 2600: 3 analogue VCOs, Noise, Sample & Hold, spring reverb,
a pseudo-voltage processor for oscillator-formed wave modulation, audio-in
modulation and electronic switching. Additionally, there is a dedicated Sub-
Oscillator to add that low-end grunt.
And best of all, all of the above can be used together, any time you like. You
want to add some percussive noise to that non-percussive patch? Just dial it
in. You want to turn VCO 1 into a classic S&H; effect? Just press the “make it
awesome effect” button on the Noise Osc!
The ReFill has a wide selection of rich, sub-woofer rumbling patches: pads,
choirs, bells, strings, brasses, organs, big leads, sequences/arps, mighty FX,
and, of course, some serious bass. It’s a collection of good, old fashioned
and useable sounds.
And if that wasn’t enough, there are five spanking new AM drum kits for Kong,
again featuring the “voltage processor”, a floor-trembling Sub-Osc Kick and
switchable routing through Thor’s filters and effects
The package includes a 20 page PDF manual breaking the setup down module by
module, and how to get the most out of them by shaping the sounds to your
This product is for Reason 5 and above only.
