Roberto D Jordan is funding the production of the Hell Synth -a palm-sized experimental synth – via a Kickstarter project.
It’s already reached more than double its funding target, with several weeks left in the campaign.
Here’s what Jordan has to say about the Hell Synth:
Little noise synths are often limited in the scope of their sound, either they grind aggressively like dive-bombing aeroplanes, or drone in massive arrays of humming square-waves.
THIS HELL SYNTH IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT! The range of sounds that come out of this little box will keep you twiddling for hours. There are oceans of glass, lightening fast arpeggios, swarming notes that dance in and out of phase.
Here’s a video demo of Hell Synth in action, using the “From Hell!!!!” program:
Here’s another example, using the ARP BOX1 program:
The Hell Synth is available to backers, starting at $45 AUD for a DIY kit and $75 pre-built. See the project site for details.
