Duran Duran Hungry Like The Wolf Appegiator
 
Hi guys,

I'm putting together a Duran Duran tribute band here in Australia. I'm running Reason 6.5. Can anyone help me with a patch/refill for the appegiated part that runs in the background throughout this song? No matter what I do I can't get it right. I'm desperate!!!

Cheers,
Alex

Duran Duran - Rio - Classic Albums DVD

Duran Duran were heavy users of the Roland Jupiter 8. A lot of the signature sound reflects the JP8.

I'm not certain, but I'd be pretty sure that the JP 8 was used for that arpeggiator sound.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any refills that feature the JP8. There's plenty with Jupiter 4 sounds - but that is a very different beast.

Assuming you won't be in the market to find a second hand Jupiter 6 (has MIDI) to use with Reason 7 when you get it :D, I would suggest you consider evaluating arming yourself with;
- Bitley Platinum - no JP8 that I'm aware of, but it does have JP4, and nice JX pads and strings that are not a bad substitute. This refill also has plenty of Fairlight sounds - another instrument Duran Duran used a lot.
- Kings of Kong - this refill has Simmons Drums on it - also used by DD.
- Synapse Antidote synth. It's no Jupiter 8, but you'll get some very nice retro fat sounds using this that will be great.


best of luck. Would be great to hear your covers on Soundcloud!

cheers
Raymond

Thanks neo, I checked it out. Great documentary, thanks for that one! Especially useful for the bass and guitar breakdown of Rio.

That's right raymondh, that appegiated patch was definately a Jupiter 8. You'd think it would be a simple sound to replicate but it's really doing my head in! I've actually looked at the Bitley Platimum refill (the 16 page patch list is on the site). No Jupiter 8. Synapse Antidote I already have, it's a great addition to Reason. And my drummer is already fortunate enough to have a Simmons kit to use alongside his acoustic kit. It's just this damned sound!! I'm actually surprised that there doesn't seem to be any refills (that I've seen anyway) that have Jupiter 8 sounds. Guess I'll keep looking!

No Problema; The entire series is fantastic.
