At the 2019 NAMM Show, scheduled for January 24 – 27, 2019 in Anaheim, California, Synclavier Digital Corporation (SDC) is debuting two iOS apps, based on the Synclavier Digital Audio System.
The Synclavier is a pioneering digital synthesis platform, originally introduced in the late 70’s by New England Digital.
SDC founder Cameron W. Jones, one of the co-inventors of the original Synclavier, has announced two new iOS apps, plus a hardware re-creation of the Synclavier Knob:
- Synclavier Go! (for iPad) and Synclavier Pocket! (for iPhone and iPod Touch) re-create the original Synclavier II FM Synthesis engine, with a touch-screen interface inspired by the original hardware. The Synclavier DSP Engine – used by Arturia in its Synclavier V product line – is a faithful recreation of the FM- and Additive-Synthesis functions of the original instrument.
- Synclavier Knob is an authentic re-creation of the control knob used in the original Synclavier instrument. This USB-powered version o?ers an unparalleled experience for the sound designer and synthesist, especially when compared to traditional mouse-driven computer interfaces.
Pricing and Availability
The new iOS apps are available now in the iOS App Store. Availability and pricing for the Synclavier Knob is TBA. Details are still to come at the Synclavier site.
