Eowave Domino Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

In addition to the new Eowave Koma synthesizer, boutique synth manufacturer Koma is expected to be demoing the Domino synthesizer at the 2012 NAMM Show.

The Domino is a discrete analogue synthesizer with a VCO in the tradition of the Korg MS-20 and the Roland TB-303. Here’s what Eowave has to say about the Domino synth:

The VCO, filter & VCA are transistor made. This transistor architecture gives .:.:DOMINO.::: a unique raw sound. Rich and raw at the same time, no need of external effects to give life to the sound. The VCO offers a mix between sawtooth and square. Pulsewidth can be modulated by the LFO.

The filter is a low-pass 24dB resonant filter. The analogue envelope range is from 1ms to 10s with attack, decay, sustain/release.The LFO has 8 different waveforms. On waveform 8, the modulation wheel can replace the LFO. MIDI CC 8 to 16 can transform the LFO in a sequencer to modulate pitch, pulsewidth, filter cutoff. The VCA can be modulated by a gate or by an envelope. In the legato mode, playing notes will generate glide between two notes. The glide time can be edited via MIDI CC. Additional features like a 8 steps sequencer, an arpeggiator and an accent recognition capability turns the Domino into a powerful tool.

Here’s another demo of the Eowave Domino in action. This  video demonstrates the LFO modulating the 24db/oct filter and the pulse width of the square waveform oscillator:

The next video demonstrates using the Eowave Domino filter to process sound from Reaktor:
