The Folktek Euphonos Field Synthesizer

euphonous-synthesizer

The Folktek Euphonos Field synthesizer is a unique boutique synthesizer that features touch-based synthesis and spectacular oak and brass construction.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

The Euphonos Field features touch based synthesis, synth trigger section, thick reverberation, filteration, delay and looping and two sequencers. All patching can be done on board with included patch cables and all modules have 1/4″ ins and outs to send to/from external gear.

The sound patching can be arranged however the player likes. ie; synthesis > reverb >delay/loop >filter. Each panel has Control Voltage to be accepted from the sequencers or from any external CV covering the synth pitch, synth triggering, filter frequency, on/off of reverb or delay, delay time and loop capture.

Loops can be captured in time with the sequencers (which can be synchronized to each other optionally or synched to external clocks) and both the delay and reverb decay when turned off.

steampunk-synthesizer

Folktek designer Arius Blaze created this awesome custom steampunk synthesizer:

The “Time Scape Wave Sequencer” is a sampler, processor and synthesizer with a built in 8 step sequencer. The touch board controls the polyphonic synth part which can be fed through delay or any combination of thousands of possibilities for wave shaping as well as the possibility of having the shape altered in time with the sequencer.

This is a demo of the Folktek BCM Edition Micro Garden.

via bigcitymusic:

The Micro Garden is cool little box, equally at home as art or a musical instrument. The BCM edition has super short delay times, tap-tempo, and reverse delay. The front panel is also interesting with the etched circles.
