Eowave Magma Analogue Bassline Synthesizer Now Available

Eowave has announced that its new Magma Analogue Bassline Synthesizer is now available.

Here’s what they have to say about the Eowave Magma:

The MAGMA is an analogue bassline synthesizer inspired by classical synths from the 1980s. It offers the possibility to mix 4 different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The 24 dB low-pass filter is also inspired from classical filters from the 80s.

To this particular sound of the 80s, we added a touch of modernity with modern controls and parameters saving features. The 16 steps sequencer has 4 rows: 1 for the notes and 3 freely assignable to a parameter of your choice that enables to create living sequences with sonorities like Vince Clark or Jan Hammer.

Eowave Persephone Mark II With The “Métallique” (Sneak Preview)

YouTube Preview Image

This is a sneak preview of the Eowave Metallic Resonator prototype, inspired by the Martenot Métallique.

In the video, it is demonstrated with the Eowave Persephone Mark II.

Maurice Martenot created an early electronic instrument, the ondes Martenot, that sounded similar to a theremin, but was controlled by a unique keyboard that allowed for traditional keyboard playing and also expressive pitch glides that the theremin is known for.

Martenot expanded the sonic capabilities of his instrument by running it through unique resonating speakers. These speakers add their own resonances and coloration to the sound, so they are part of the ‘sound’ of the instrument.

Boutique synth manufacturer Eowave has announced plans to release the Magma analogue bassline synthesizer at Musikmesse 2012.

According to the developer, the Eowave Magma analogue bassline synthesizer was inspired by classic synths from the 1980s.

Key features include:

  • Mix four different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise);
  • 24 dB low-pass filter; and
  • A 16 step sequencer.

Eowave Domino Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

In addition to the new Eowave Koma synthesizer, boutique synth manufacturer Koma is expected to be demoing the Domino synthesizer at the 2012 NAMM Show.

The Domino is a discrete analogue synthesizer with a VCO in the tradition of the Korg MS-20 and the Roland TB-303. Here’s what Eowave has to say about the Domino synth:

The VCO, filter & VCA are transistor made. This transistor architecture gives .:.:DOMINO.::: a unique raw sound. Rich and raw at the same time, no need of external effects to give life to the sound. The VCO offers a mix between sawtooth and square. Pulsewidth can be modulated by the LFO.

The filter is a low-pass 24dB resonant filter. The analogue envelope range is from 1ms to 10s with attack, decay, sustain/release.The LFO has 8 different waveforms. On waveform 8, the modulation wheel can replace the LFO. MIDI CC 8 to 16 can transform the LFO in a sequencer to modulate pitch, pulsewidth, filter cutoff. The VCA can be modulated by a gate or by an envelope. In the legato mode, playing notes will generate glide between two notes. The glide time can be edited via MIDI CC. Additional features like a 8 steps sequencer, an arpeggiator and an accent recognition capability turns the Domino into a powerful tool.
