Elektron has officially introduced the Analog Keys – a flagship analog synthesizer that offers analog synthesis, digital controls, and ‘unprecedented playability’.
Key features include:
- 100% analog signal path
- Seamless integration with MIDI controller functionality, CV/Gate connectivity, assignable joystick and more
- Fully customizable voice allocation lets you use it as a four voice synth, four independent synth, as a massive unison monosynth and anything in between
- Dual filter action with 4-pole lowpass and 2-pole multi-mode filters
- Effects including Wideshift Chorus, Saturator Delay and Supervoid Reverb
- Built-in step sequencer
- Flexible modulation architecture
- Massive storage space lets you store over 4,000 sounds
- Connections include individual stereo outs per voice, two audio inputs, two dual cv/gate outputs, USB & MIDI & DIN sync
We’ve got the full details, including video & audio demos, specifications, pricing and more. Check out the details and let us know what you think of the Elektron Analog Keys! Continue reading
Plankton Electronics has introduced The Jellyfish – a DIY double delay, with modulation options capable of a wide variety of sounds, from simple delay lines to crazy modulated stereo sounds.
- Analog passive filters
- CV inputs
- Two LFOs
- Infinite feedback switch
- Xdelay function
- Dry/Wet controls
- Pseudo-stereo (1 in-2 outs) or mono mixed sound
Here are audio demos of the Jellyfish in action: Continue reading
Syntaur has introduced the CVP-100 Control Voltage Pedal – a pedal that you can patch into synths that accept control voltages to add control of volume, filter sweeps and more:
Similar to the classic Moog Model 1120 pedal, the Syntaur CVP-100 pedal is a control-voltage (CV) source for use with analog synthesizers. It generates a voltage, the level of which is controlled by the pedal, and by plugging the 1/4-inch phone plug into a CV input of a synthesizer, you can control filter sweeps, volume, pitch, etc. This sturdy pedal is a great expressive tool for use with your vintage synths!
Here’s a partial list of synths that the Syntaur CVP-100 pedal is compatible with: Continue reading
This user video, via guinness2u1, demonstrates using the Keith McMillen QuNexus controller as a MIDI to CV converter and as a control voltage keyboard. Continue reading
