In the latest episode of Sonic Lab, host Nick Batt takes a look at the recently introduced Modal CRAFTsynth monophonic synthesizer.
The CRAFTsynth is an assemble-it-yourself monophonic synthesizer, with full MIDI support through a Class Compliant USB port. According to to Modal, the CRAFTsynth can be assembled in 10 minutes, with no tools, and ‘it brings real synthesizer performance to a new price point’.
Batt calls it a ‘cracking little instrument’, adding “Don’t let the funky appearance trick you into thinking it can’t make some pretty impressive sounds.” Plus – Pulse Width Modulation!
Pricing and Availability
The Modal CRAFTsynth is expected to ship in early December 2016, with an MSRP UK £79.99 including VAT. It will be available in Europe exclusively through Gear4Music. US release and pricing are TBA. Details are available at the Modal site.
