Erica Synths shared this hands-on demo of their new SYNTRX – a new synth that, while inspired by the classic Synthi AKS, uses analog circuits that were developed from scratch.
Instead of making a nostalgic clone, Erica Synths’ SYNTRX is designed to go far beyond what the Synthi can do. It features a digitally-controlled patch matrix, instead of the Synthi’s pin patch matrix. Because the SYNTRX uses a digital patch matrix, it has reliable patch connections, connection points that can be attentuated, and the ability to save up to 256 patches.
The SYNTRX features 3 highly accurate VCOs, a noise generator with “color” filter, resonant VCF, ring modulator, spring reverb, looping envelope generator, joystick controller, input amplifier with adjustable gain for microphone to line level signals, 3 VCAs, output signal filter, analogue CV/audio signal level indicator and built-in speakers.
Pricing and Availability
The SYNTRX is expected to be available to preorder in the next week, priced at 2500EUR (VAT excluded).
