This is shot of the rather sexy Tyrell synthesizer – a new synth design which is, unfortunately, vaporware.
The Tyrell synth is a design of German online music magazine amazona.de. They created the Tyrell as a sort of “dream synthesizer” and to encourage manufacturers to think big and create synths that compare favorably to the greatest synths of all time.
Here are the Googlish specs:
- 2 oscillators
- Synchronisation of the oscillators, FM and ring modulation as well as pulse width modulation are intended.
- The waveform-shaping are flowing and rich of sine (for FM and ring modulation interesting) up to two special „intoxication “- forms, in order to be able to make on oscillator basis also Sync or FM with them and generally extend by the sound pallet. The waveform-shaping can be adjusted so also in their symmetry and modulated (pulse width modulation).
- Ring modulator with different points of pick-up. It hardly dares a manufacturer to feed the ring modulator differently than with the two oscillator signals. Here there is a choice to include the filter with.
- Modulation bus for filters and oscillator separately
- Special mixture range, which finally causes additionally saturation, in extreme attitudes distortion and feedback, therefore please never push the automatic controllers immediately completely upward.
- Multi-mode filter with the characteristic for the determination of the range of the bandpass filter, as well as special saturation and sound characteristics of different typical structure forms of filters (construction unit-oriented)
- Retriggerbare and jagged ADSR envelopes through „LFOs “(here modulation oscillators called, since we do not attach importance on „slowly “.
- Modulation Sequencer can steer arbitrary parameters
- Two modulation oscillators beginning with MIDI Clock option and Shaping, as well as switchable different random variants, with the classical „SAM-polarize & Hold “and Fade in or Fade out alternatively and hue control
