Rakit has introduced Metal, a pocket-sized percussion synth that they say is ‘inspired by metallic noise generators of the past’.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Three sound modes are fed through a modified Polivoks filter to deliver razor-edged sounds and lazer-guided oscillations – triggered by hand or external CV.
The Rakit Metal synth has a built-in VCA to shape the contour of the sound, fed through an adjustable sweep function to give rise to twisted shimmers, pitched-up drones, and chunky electro chops. The multi-mode filter has band pass and low pass settings, with controllable filter cutoff and enough Resonance to self-oscillate into oblivion. Ideal for hattoms, kicks, bleeps, and sweeps!
It comes with a trigger input for live sequencing, CV control over cutoff frequency and an audio input to forge new sounds through its circuitry.
