Synthesist Christian Henson shared this look into the Analogue Solutions Colossus, a synth he describes as ‘the second most beautiful synth in the world’.
Henson is a award-winning composer and co-founder of virtual instrument company Spitfire Audio.
‘He recent purchased a Colossus for his work. The Colossus is a £25K no-compromise synth design, inspired by the classic EMS Synthi 100. Analog Solution admits that the Colossus is ‘not entirely practical’, but is designed to be impressive physically and sonically. And it’s been successful – Analogue Solutions recently announced the fourth run of the £25K supersynth.
