Future Retro has released the “extremely limited” Signature Edition of the Revolution synthesizer.
Two versions are available: 9 UV orange units. which are available exclusively in the UK through Analogue Addiction, and 10 silver metalic units which are available exclusively in the USA through Nova Musik.
The Revolution is a concept synthesizer that provides an intuitive interface which represents the principles of time and music.
“From ancient sundials to modern day analog clocks, time has been represented as the circle, a cycle which never ends. For time itself is nothing more than our perception of the revolution of planets as they journey through their celestial orbit. It is this motion we call time which can be measured, divided, and arranged to provide the foundation of music. This circular cyclic theme can furthermore be found throughout music in everything from song structure, and repeating rhythms, to the fundamentals of sound itself, being the sin wave. With this understanding we must conclude that music is cyclic, and should so be represented in its natural form.”
