Erica Synths Releases Final Batch Of SYNTRX Matrix Synthesizers

Erica Synths has announced the release of its final batch of SYNTRX matrix synthesizer:

We have stopped the manufacturing of SYNTRX & last 300 units of SYNTRX are now available for 2300 EUR (tax excl.)

Since its beginnings, Erica Synths has promoted experimental electronic music and has developed instruments that enable musicians to unleash their creativity.

When it comes to standalone instruments, we think, one of most encouraging instruments in experimental music was Synthi AKS, so we teamed up with engineers from Riga Technical University to develop a synthesizer with a user interface that challenges conventional wisdom in a sound design. We believe, it will inspire users to explore the sonic universe and travel to previously undiscovered audible realms.

  1. It’s SO worth getting if you can spare the cash. I’ve had one for almost a year and every time I play it, it brings joy. Truly an experimental monster!

  2. I should probably sell my unused SP-12 to buy this.
    I think it’s bad of companies to discontinue cool products.
    They could have said that this is the last batch for now, but in 3 years there will be more.
    Then we would have 3 years to save up for one..

    1. When they launched the SYNTRX it was announced specifically as a “limited run.” I’m not sure you could even say that it’s been discontinued when they announced well before launch that it wouldn’t be around forever.

  3. Not a lot of good videos show casing this. Its not a turn on and boom type synth. Very much wants to hit other worldly areas of sound. But once your get your head wrapped around it the sound can be super thick for bass or nice top end standard stuff.

    Hands down the best Desktop Synth in terms of build quality, sonic exploration, and aesthetics I own.

  4. I’d love to see a graph on the number of people who can afford synths like this vs. the number who buy them and actually use them. Even money says 30% go to collectors and just sit there. I can’t show my work because my data are all plucked out of my arse. I’ve just been playing long enough to see how weird the market can be, especially for boutique gear. Besides, this is a manly synth and no tool for wimps. 😛

  5. The pricing is off the charts. I can see why none sold. What a shame.since it looks great. They really need to look long and hard at their product line. Way too many unicorns that are driving up costs (labor, materials, etc.) that are then borne by their Eurorack and cheaper customers. Too many products now chasing inflated dollars.

  6. It was a limited run and that’s a wonderful thing. People who wanted it, have it. And now Erica can focus on their next high end desktop unit.

  7. the price is very reasonable for what it is, if you purchased all the components separately as Euro Rack modules it would be more expensive that this. and then there is the specific market it’s in, the EMS Synthi is going for around 15,000 or more at the moment and a lot of the other Synthi replicas are around 5 to 7,000. so for this build quality and the market it’s in it is actually a very good price point. but of course that doesn’t mean it’s not still expensive.
