Atomic Shadow has posted a review of the new Electronic Music Works EMW-200 synthesizer – a modern take on the vintage ElectroComp EML-200.
In no time at all you have soundscapes from alien worlds (kind of my thing I guess), squiggly beeps and tweets, atonal ring modulated moaning, hissing and banging.
It has all of the fundamental building blocks of electronic sound in one nicely designed package.
This not some cheap toy. It is well built, solid, with wooden end panels. There are no menus or memories, just knobs and patch cords, the way God intended. Last night as I recorded the demo I thought that this thing is sort of the VCS3 that I will never be able to afford.
The Electronic Music Works EMW-200 synthesizer is priced at $1,299 and is available via the EMW site.
This is a demo of the Electronic Music Works Patch Synthesizer JX-810P, a patch generator for the the Roland JX-8P and MKS-70.
Here’s what EMW has to say about the Patch Synthesizer:
Our Patch Synthesizer is not just a patch randomizer, it uses an intelligent algorithm to create very usable sounds and has adjustable parameters to allow you to control the type of patch that will be created. Rediscover your synth with the EMW Patch Synthesizer series.
Electronic Music Works offers a variety of Patch Synthesizers, including ones for the Roland Alpha Junos and the Yamaha TX81Z / DX11. See the company site for details.
