Futuresonus recently announced the Parva – a polyphonic analog synthesizer that they say’combines the classic warmth of an all-analog signal chain with the modern convenience of digital control in an elegantly designed tabletop package’.
Here’s a sneak preview of the Futuresonus Parva in action:
The Futursonus Parva Synthesizer
Each of Parva’s eight voices features three digitally-controlled analog oscillators, producing sawtooth, triangle, and PWM waveforms with accurate pitch and tuning stability.
A pair of two-pole state-variable filters can be configured for a 12dB or 24dB low-pass or high-pass response, or split for bandpass or notch filtering. Four four-stage envelope generators and four multi-waveform low-frequency oscillators feed a flexible modulation matrix, allowing for virtually limitless sound design options.
- Eight voice polyphonic synthesizer with flexible voice assignment
- Three oscillators per voice
- Flexible dual filters
