Saturday Synth Porn: This unique instrument is a prototype, created by Ken MacBeth, of a new Touch Keyboard Stereo Synthesizer.
He shared this image of the prototype, along with these comments, at his Facebook page:
Whilst the Micromac- D is in production- I’ve been concentrating on another ambitious project- a touch keyboard stereo synthesizer!
I have now etched both the control (lower) pcb and the ‘touch plate’ front panel! This is how the synths I do start out. This is a prium product with some rather unique features- but basically 4 Oscillators, 2 Noise Generators, 1 LFO, a Dual State Variable Filter, 4 Envelope Generators, 2 VCAs (Stereo) and a stereo ‘tape delay synthesizer. It’s been a long term development over years. The micromac series have been designed for those who wish for the vintage ‘moog-like’ sound- this is a completely different design!
Here’s another look:
Note: The MacBeth Touch Keyboard Stereo Synthesizer is a prototype; no pricing or availability has been determined at this point.
