This video, via perfectcircuitaudio, previews the Akai Timbre Wolf – a new analog 4-voice polyphonic synthesizer.
The Timbre Wolf is unusual in that it can be configured in multiple different modes:
- You can use the Timbre Wolf as four individual monophonic synthesizers;
- A 4-voice unison monophonic synthesizer, or
- As a 4-voice polyphonic synthesizer.
Because it has separate controls for each synth voice, you can independently customize the sound of each voice as you play.
The Timbre Wolf also offers a 32-step sequencer that can be programmed individually per voice, allowing each of the four voices to have its own stepped sequence that can be played simultaneously.
Each voice also has its own independent filter settings and tuning that can be adjusted individually, and each voice can also transmit its own MIDI messages for a wide range of routing possibilities.
There are also four individual outputs so you can route out individual sequences, or use a sum of all four voices from the master output.
There’??s a gate trigger In/Out that will allow you to trigger sequences via modular synths, vintage sequencers, or external sound sources.
