Futursonus has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of Parva – a new polyphonic analog synthesizer that combines an all-analog signal chain with the modern convenience of digital control.
The Parva can be configured as a monosynth all the way up to an 8-voice poly synth. Each synth voice offers three analog oscillators, dual multi-mode filters, four 4-stage envelopes, 4 LFOs, sample and hold and 40+ modulation destinations.
