Rare Waves has introduced a new analog synthesizer, descended directly from the Grendel Drone Commander: the DC-2e Drone Commander 2 + Expander in Eurorack modular format.
They describe it as a ‘unique and highly playable tone source for drone music, leads, bass, and sound effects.”
Here are a couple of video demos:
Grendel Drone Commander 2 is a true analog synth built, with extensive use of discrete transistor technology. Its minimalist control panel presents twelve solid metal knobs, and each one doubles as a push-pull switch to modify the tone.
Behind the panel is a newly designed all-analog sound engine with two oscillators, two filters, an envelope generator, and a comprehensive LFO section capable of producing four simultaneous waveforms.
Pricing and availability are to be announced. See the Rare Waves site for more info.
