Looking for best analog synth refills

Hi everyone,

What are your favorite analog synth refills for Reason 5.0?

I'm looking for a bundle that would be similar to Arturia's Analog Factory, but anything along those lines would be great.

I haven't found anything that would be equivalent to Arturia's huge analog bundle, but there are some refills that compare with individual elements of the bundle, such as Jigery Pokery's Blue Meanie ARP 2600 refill (10 pounds):

Blue Meanie refill

And Exode's Massive FREE refill includes some amazing analog stuff like Oberheims:

Of course, these are refills, so you don't get a pretty screen image of the device like you do with an Arturia plug-in, but they are very sonicly detailed and authentic. I've personally found these to be very good and tweakable analog sounds.

And, if you're willing to go to Rack Extensions, the Korg Poly600, G-Force Re-Tron, and Ron Papen's Predator-Re are just amazing and fun to play with. Plus you get more customized controls and screen image to get lost in noodling around. All three are great and versatile instruments!

"F" the ineffable!

I second the notion of getting anything by Jiggery-Pokery. I picked up on his Nebulae refill for some killer ambient pads and Combis. Haven't used the Blue Meanie myself, but at around $16 USD you can hardly go wrong. Everything he does is first rate. Be sure to listen to the sample music at the bottom of the page.

Bitley Platinum is well know for its Fairlight samples, but I like it for the analog instruments especially Roland JX 8P/10 and Prophet 5.

Jiggery Pokery Retrospective is also a great refill for Vintage synths.
