Eowave Magma Analogue Bassline Synthesizer Now Available

Eowave has announced that its new Magma Analogue Bassline Synthesizer is now available.

Here’s what they have to say about the Eowave Magma:

The MAGMA is an analogue bassline synthesizer inspired by classical synths from the 1980s. It offers the possibility to mix 4 different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The 24 dB low-pass filter is also inspired from classical filters from the 80s.

To this particular sound of the 80s, we added a touch of modernity with modern controls and parameters saving features. The 16 steps sequencer has 4 rows: 1 for the notes and 3 freely assignable to a parameter of your choice that enables to create living sequences with sonorities like Vince Clark or Jan Hammer.

Technical details below:

Oscillator section
– analogue VCO with square saw sub (sub can be 1 or 2 octaves below the master freq), noise.
– VCO can be modulated by LFO and PW
– Variable glide
– mixer to mix the 4 waveforms

Filter section
Full analogue VCO, filter, VCA.
– external audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
– 24dB low pass filter roland style for a classical 80s sound
– filter can be modulated by env2, KB, lfo.

VCA section
– Vca is affected to env1
– 2 envelopes ADSR modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter.
Attack goes from 2ms to 10s.

LFOs section
– 2 x LFO with 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)

Connections
audio in
audio out
MIDI in
Usb (for software update and MIDI in&out)

Sequencer
– 16 steps sequencer with LED
– 4 rows: 1 row controls gates and notes.
- 3 other rows are freely assignable to any parameter of the front panel.
-Swing and shuffle per note – You can transpose the sequencer with an external MIDI keyboard.

The Eowave Magma is available now for 539 € excl. VAT.

  1. We finally got what we asked for: tons and tons of analog gear… and I can’t be bothered. But, seriously, I only have so much money and room for hardware. It’s gonna be tough to make up my mind next synth purchase.

  2. oi, send me a test model. I got hit by a car and all i can do is lay around and synth out. i could use the bass for muscle therapy

  3. Hey I am not aware of an accent control like the 303’s and the clones. That is an important detail?
    Can anyone shed light on the accent side of it?

    1. I have the Eowave Domino which has accent but is triggered when you send a midi note with a velocity, between 120 – 127. Not sure how that would work with the in-built sequencer though! If it does have it, most likely you have to press ‘shift’ and press the ‘step’ you want to have an accent on.

      Also, they are going for synths of the 80’s not just 303’s, the Domino is actually aimed more towards that market due to the nature of its transistor based filter. Apparently.

      1. Thanks a lot for your reply. I appreciate it. I have been into acid since 88, I make acid trax etc, I am trying to avoid buying another 303. I have the xoxbox , does the domino sound anything like a 303? I imagine the accent must really add something to the sound. I can’t believe how poor the demos are on the eowave stuff. I just checked the acidlab and it sounds semi distorted straight out of the box , so that one isn’t to subtle for those slidey funked up 303 lines.
