At Knobcon 2016, we talked with designer Michael Bachman about his Ottava analog synthesizer and neuroRack Eurorack synthesizer modules:
The Ottava Desktop Analog Performance Synthesizer is a two-oscillator monophonic synthesizer, with a 4-pole analog low-pass ladder filter, 4 LFO’s and 4 EG’s and patch storage.
The Ottava was designed with modular construction, so that the synth can easily be customized. The boards that make up the core of the Ottava can also be used in custom synth designs and Bachman even has plans for using them to build a polyphonic analog synth.
The neuroRack modules are Eurorack designs with some unique features, including per-module patch storage and system-wide patch storage.
Pricing and Availability
The Artisan Electronic Instruments Ottava analog synthesizer is available now for US $700. The neuroRack modules are under development and pricing and availability are to be announced.
