Here’s a quick demo of the Therevox ET-4 analog ribbon synthesizer.
Inspired by the Ondes Martenot’s au ruban controller, the ET-4 is controlled by moving a finger along a reference keyboard shaped to provide tactile feedback. Dual pressure sensitive intensity keys control the amplitude of the ET-4′s two independent analog oscillators.
Therevox has introduced the Therevox ET-4 - a new continuous pitch analog synthesizer that is expected to ship in January of 2012.
The Therevox ET-4 is inspired by the Ondes Martenot’s “au ruban” controller .Pitch is controlled by moving an adjustable finger-ring, while amplitude is controlled by two pressure-sensitive keys.
The ET-4 can interface with external synthesizer gear through Control Voltage (CV) outputs for the ring controller and amplitude keys.
A wide range of sounds can also be created with the ET-4′s dual analog oscillators, each with 6 waveforms and 6 octave positions, along with low-pass filtering and real spring reverb. The ET-4 plugs directly into an amplifier and has a separate output for a tuner, for easy and silent tuning changes.
